CBR1000RR-SP Overview

Once in a great while there comes a high performance machine so perfectly balanced and intuitive to operate that it becomes one with its operator, achieving seamless integration. The CBR1000RR SP is that machine. More and more engineers are using computer assisted electronic aids to bridge the gap between man and machine, but in doing so something is lost, the feeling of control is diminished, the reward to the senses faded, the experience compromised. Noticeably absent on the CBR1000RR SP are electronic aids of any kind; engineers instead took a different, perhaps more laborious, approach. Starting with arguably one of the most balanced sporting platforms available, the CBR1000RR, engineers added top shelf componentry known for excellent feel, feedback and control. The SP chassis wears circuit-ready Öhlins suspension front and rear, plus Brembo four-piston mono bloc calipers, and has frame revisions and new top and bottom yokes to suit. A sleek solo seat saves weight and positions the rider exactly where he needs to be, while Pirelli Supercorsa SP tires provide the finishing touch. Confident they had the right hardware, engineers then started the real work, hours and hours were spent painstakingly testing and fine-tuning the communication and feedback between rider and machine, until they were sure they had the rewarding experience they desired. To top it all off, factory-matched pistons and con-rods were added to ensure optimum internal engine balance, and the whole package was wrapped in its own unique Tricolour paint and trademark Honda gold wheels. Decades from now, historians may look back and proclaim that the CBR1000RR SP was one of the last pure sporting machines ever built.

The Honda Motorcycle Advantage

At Honda, innovation isn’t just a buzzword. Innovation is the driving force behind every product we engineer. Take a moment to learn about the Honda Motorcycle advantage.

Why Buy a Honda Motorcycle?

Since the production and sales of its first mass-produced motorcycle, the Dream D, in 1949, Honda has offered products that enrich the lifestyles of customers around the world. Honda has now been producing motorcycles for more than 60 years and is the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer

Honda Advantage Technologies

Here are just a few examples that showcase the best of Honda’s engineering expertise and imagination, making Honda Motorcycles the trusted choice of so many Canadian riders.

First Motorcycle Airbag

What company other than Honda would spend 15 years of Research & Development to create the industry’s first airbag? It’s this level of commitment to rider safety that sets Honda apart from other motorcycle manufacturers.

The airbag-equipped Gold Wing boasts the industry's first (and only) production motorcycle airbag system, which can help lessen the severity of injuries caused by frontal collisions. Four sensors mounted on the front fork detect changes in acceleration caused by a frontal impact, and send that data to an ECU computer. If the ECU determines that a serious collision is in progress, it instantly instructs the airbag to deploy from a panel in the dash area. The airbag is V-shaped and tethered to help secure the rider in position.See how the airbag works at:

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

Honda offers Anti-lock Braking Systems as standard equipment on more of our motorcycle models than any other manufacturer – from our top-of-the-line touring bikes to our entry model bikes. Honda’s Combined Braking System with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) creates the optimal balance of front and rear braking forces and the control of an advanced ABS system that helps you stop with confidence on even wet or dirty road surfaces. Honda has also pioneered the Electronically Controlled Combined ABS – the world's first electronically controlled braking system for super sport bikes. The system is specially designed to electronically distribute front and rear braking forces to maximize braking in a light-weight, short-wheelbased package.

Rider-Focused Design

Ask Honda riders why they love their bike. You might get quite a number of different responses, but many may simply say, “Things are just different on a Honda. It’s better.”

What makes it better? To start, it’s the focus on you, the rider. Honda engineers ask questions others might not. More detailed questions. Not simply, “how can we improve the brakes?” But, “how can a braking system compensate for a rider’s panic-driven reactions in an emergency without affecting normal braking feel?

Their concern is not simply how things look on a spec sheet, nor simply how they look in a photograph. Their concern is how things work. They strive to ensure all connections to the rider are smooth, seamless, predictable and linear, that all controls are right where you’d expect them, and that the bike always gets you home.

Honda’s focus is on your overall experience, or in Honda’s language, the joy of motorcycle ownership. In addition to riding dynamics, a high priority in our design process is to simplify maintenance and service items so you can minimize time in the shop and maximize time on the road.

Hondas do feel different than other bikes. They’re always more than the sum of their parts. Happy owners make for happy engineers, and happy engineers might just change the world. Don’t believe us? Learn about the Honda Cub:
