Conquer with the all-new 2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade

A collaboration for the history books, between Honda's motorcycle engineering and design team and the official HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) engineers arrives the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade. With a new inline four-cylinder engine with a compact, short-stroke layout - sharing the same bore and stroke of the RC213V, you're promised race-ready performance with incredible reliability. Many of the internals have been designed and inspired directly from the RC213V-S, with the same semi-cam gear train, finger-follower rocket arms, titanium con rods and the same internal friction reduction technologies; plus much more.

All this power, a whopping 113Nm torque at 12,500rpm and an incredible peak power of 160Kw at 14,500rpm, breathes lively sound through charismatic Akrapovic end-can. Pushing the limit, the new Fireblade has received a stunning range of new tech to push you further, with more confidence. Throttle By Wire has been enhanced, with an even better feel plus three default riding modes, with options for Power, Engine Brake, Wheelie Control and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC).

The body housing the beast is a totally new aluminium diamond frame, using the rear of the engine as the upper shock mount; while the swingarm is longer, also based on the RC213V-S. Rigid, yet flexible, with incredible balance and weight distribution; all complimenting the increased engine output with better grip for both the front and rear.

The suspension has been equipped with top of the line equipment, with Showa's 43mm Big Pistol Fork (BPF), matched to a Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion Light (BFRC-L). Stemming down to larger diameter front discs, controlled by new Nissin four-piston calipers, while the ABS is adjustable for track riding.

There's plenty to learn about the new design, and even more to the specification - especially on the enhanced CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP model. You can learn about them both here on our website, or by getting in touch with our team today who would be more than happy to help.
