Built from 25 years of experimenting, refining and perfecting what is described as cutting-edge in the Supersport world, the newly released 2017 CBR1000RR Fireblade captures the project's goals and aspirations, moving forwards to define what it really means to ride.
Wrapped up tightly in the new package are three editions of the Blade, the CBR1000RR Fireblade, the Fireblade SP and the Fireblade SP2 - all with different goals in the end-user experience. The base level CBR1000RR Fireblade brings sporting and track-ready performance to the street, devouring each twist and turn with ease.
The Fireblade SP steps the fire up to another level, coming loaded with increased power, an array of electronics but with a reduced mass of 15kg and a semi-active Öhlins S-EC suspension - ultimately aiming to redefine your meaning of an adrenalin rush.
The Fireblade SP2 however, takes aim at the racetrack. Sporting gold Marchesini wheels to reduce weight and wheel inertia, along with a refined and optimised valve shape layout to accustom new elongated spark plugs and a water jacket to offer improved cooling. You can see for yourself, it's a bike that's built to destroy your competition, even if your only competition is your own lap times.
Are you ready to rediscover what it means to ride? To experience full and total control? Wander to the new supersport range, find yourself isolated from the world, just enjoying the ride once again.
