What Is It?

The Honda VTR1000 SP1 and SP2 are dedicated sports bikes which replaced the RVF750R RC45. They are powered by a Euro 1 compliant liquid cooled 999 cc 90° V-Twin four stroke engine, producing 134.1 bhp at 9,500 rpm and maximum torque at 8,000 rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame and swingarm
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with Nissin four piston calipers
  • 220 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Adjustable Showa 43 mm upside down fork with 130 mm travel
  • Adjustable Showa 40 mm rear shock with 120 mm travel
  • 2->2 Stainless Steel exhaust system
  • 6 speed gearbox, fuel injection

Honda's superbike departed from the RC45's V4 engine in order to better compete with Ducati and had a more aggressive riding position, with a number of Magnesium bits to reduce weight.

Unusually the air intake port is right in the nose, passing straight through the steering head to a large port with a low / high-speed valve. Like the VTR1000F Firestorm there are two side mounted radiators visible through the iconic triangular cutouts in the fairing, although in this case they are 20% larger.

The engine is also significantly tweaked from the Firestorm, with larger pistons, smaller stroke and higher compression; basically more power at higher revs. It was Honda's last gear driven cam race bike and was eventually replaced by the CBR1000RR. The 6-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.

  • 2000: "Winning Red"
  • 2001: Red, silver
  • 2002-2003: White/black
  • 2004-2005: Black/silver
  • 2006-2008: Black/grey
