Overview

In response to demand from a hard-core of performance enthusiasts Honda - for the very first time - in 2014 is producing the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP. A track-focused, yet fully road legal, version of the bike that not only looks special - it is special.

The chassis wears circuit-ready front and rear Ohlins suspension plus Brembo four-piston mono block calipers, with frame revisions and new top and bottom yokes to suit. Honda's electronic Combined Anti-lock Brake System comes as standard, with software remapped appropriately. Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres are the finishing touch.

The 999.8cc inline four-cylinder engine gets the same updated cylinder head as the standard 2014 CBR1000RR Fireblade, with improved inlet/exhaust gas flow and combustion efficiency, and the extra 2kW peak power boost. However it features factory-matched pistons and con-rods, to ensure optimum internal balance. As a track-focused machine there's no provision for a pillion and a sleek single seat unit saves weight. Further marking the SP version out from standard is its own unique Tricolour paint - white and two-tone blue, with a central red stripe and trademark Honda gold wheels.

The CBR1000RR SP uses a new 'wave' design ignition key; it offers improved security and its compact size greatly reduces the chance of breakage. Also new is the fuel tank cap - it uses an improved breather design for better venting. Instrumentation is a multi-function LCD with a cockpit display dominated by the digital bar-type linear tachometer that scrolls left to right as engine speed increases. Beneath this are the main numerical readouts: gear position, coolant temperature, speedometer, clock/lap time, trip/fuel efficiency/fuel consumption and odometer/numerical tachometer. At the bottom of the display are lights for headlight high beam, neutral and indicators.
