What Is It?

The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is a dedicated premium sports bike and is powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 999cc inline four engine, producing 189bhp at 13,000rpm and maximum torque at 11,000rpm. 

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame and swingarm
  • Dual 320mm discs up front with Tokico 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Cornering ABS system
  • Adjustable 43mm Showa Big Piston fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable Showa shock with 138mm travel
  • Traction control, wheelie control
  • Auto dimming TFT dashboard
  • LED lights all round with both high/low beam from both headlights
  • 4->2->1 exhaust system with Titanium muffler
  • Slipper clutch, adjustable levers
  • 6 speed gearbox

Compared to the 2014-2016 model 90% of the main components have been upgraded, power is up by 10.7bhp, weight down an amazing 14kg and as a result the power to weight ratio is up roughly 14%. The new muffler accounts for 2.8kg off the weight, the engine 2kg and the smaller Titanium fuel tank 1.3kg, with minor amounts off the frame, swingarm, calipers, wheels, radiator and slipper clutch as well.

The electronics package is impressive, with new cornering ABS taking input from the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), traction control with three modes and wheelie control. Track mode gives you full power with Winding and Street offering increasing levels of torque control and engine braking. There are also two user modes where any of the various systems can be set at the level you prefer; the torque control offers 9 levels of adjustment and there are 5 levels of power to choose from. Check the pics above for all the combos.

The fancy new colour TFT dash has three modes to play with in Street, Circuit and Mechanic. Street is the base mode, Circuit adds lap times/counts/best lap and Mechanic adds things like grip angle, coolant temperature and battery voltage. The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a Bridgestone S21 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.

Accessories include a quickshifter (£695), colour coded rear hugger (£195) and colour coded seat cowl (£195).

Colours: Black, red

2019: Electronics update separating wheelie control from traction control and slightly updated paint schemes.

Fireblade SP and SP2

The £19,125 SP version gets you a quickshifter with downshift assist, Ohlins S-EC semi-active suspension and Brembo brakes with new high performance brake pads. It's 1kg lighter than the base Fireblade, but has a lower 820mm single seat and is available in a red/white/dark blue colour scheme, with silver frame and gold wheels.

For £22,250 you can have the rare Fireblade SP2 however only 150 of the 500 production run are coming to Europe. The colour scheme is similar to the SP but with light blue/gold detailing and you get bronze spiral Marchesini wheels. The main difference lies in the revised cylinder heads derived from the RC213V MotoGP machine and the availability of a race kit. It also weighs in at 195kg.
