honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

Back

Three factors are key to the essence of the new CBR1000RR Fireblade: less weight, more power, and electronics to help the rider wherever and however they’re riding.

The new electronic control system provides constant, selectable and fine-tunable rider support. Central to the system is the 5-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which measures exactly what the machine is doing, in every plane. It works the Honda Selectable Torque Control system (HSTC) that precisely manages rear wheel traction via the FI-ECU and Throttle By Wire (TBW). The new ABS braking (also managed by the IMU) offers Rear Lift Control (RLC) and the ability for hard, safe trail braking into corners. Any difference measured between the front and rear wheel speeds engages Wheelie Control, depending on settings.

Three standard display modes – Street, Circuit and Mechanic – provide all the information required for the rider relevant to the type of riding. The information displayed can be fine-tuned and adjusted while riding by using the left hand switch gear and TFT liquid crystal display, just as on the RC213V-S, Honda’s road going version of its RC213V MotoGP machine.

While the electronic control is very much a new departure for the Fireblade, the other two factors draw faithfully on the philosophy of the original 1992 machine: the optimal balance of power and weight. Ninety percent of the main components have been changed in a relentless search for incremental weight reduction in every area. The engine revs harder and higher, with a much higher compression ratio and revised cam timing, and uses the TBW (a first for an inline four-cylinder Honda) and Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) also developed for use on the RC213V-S.

Bottom end torque and power are improved, with a significant increase in top-end power – up 8kW to 141kW @ 13,000rpm and 3 modes of engine output character can be selected.

Thanks to the use of magnesium and careful assessment and lightening of individual parts the engine also carries 2kg less. The new titanium exhaust muffler saves weight and aids mass centralisation. Overall the Fireblade is a full 15kg lighter than the outgoing model, with a wet weight of 196kg.

The twin-spar aluminium frame’s rigidity balance has been finely adjusted, and the swingarm is stiffer to match. A new rear subframe is lighter, as are the redesigned wheels, while new Tokico four-piston front brake calipers use high-performance track-ready brake pads.

CBR1000RR Fireblade Finance

CBR1000RR FIREBLADE 17YM

2 years affordable finance

Look at our great offer and see how easy it is to take a Honda home.

Payment Options

We offer two simple and affordable finance options: PCP and VPL. But how do they differ?

 

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

Your repayments will be less than traditional finance. You put down a deposit on a bike, and we calculate its Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (GMFV). We deduct this from the price of the bike and your monthly payments are based on what’s left. You can then choose to pay the GMFV and keep your Honda, return it or part-exchange it for a new bike. 

Personal loan (VPL)

This works like a simple loan. You decide on the model and put down a deposit. We calculate for you how much you want your fixed monthly payment to be, and the term. That means you know up front how much your Honda will cost each month until it’s paid off and you own the bike.
