Over the £15,225 CBR1000RR you get Ohlins S-EC semi-active suspension, Brembo brakes with new high performance brake pads, a quickshifter, gold wheels, a 12 mm lower single seat, special colour scheme and 1 kg shaved off the weight.
Compared to the outgoing 2014-2016 SP 90% of the main components have been upgraded, power is up by 7 bhp, weight down 4 kg and as a result power:weight is up a tad. The new muffler, engine and smaller Titanium fuel tank account for most of the weight loss, with minor amounts off the frame, swingarm, calipers, wheels, radiator and clutch.
The electronics are impressive with new cornering ABS, 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.
The 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.
