More CBR Chassis, Power, and Suspension: 2017 CBR1000RR SP

CBR1000RR SP has undergone a major overhaul for the 2017 model year, with a 33 lb. weight reduction and 10 horsepower increase resulting in a 14% improvement in power-to-weight ratio.

"Since their debut, CBR liter bikes have been designed to perform in the real world, the way real customers use them,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda.

 “We’re pleased to unveil the 2017 CBR1000RR SP, which follows in that same tradition by providing a superbly balanced package with our best power-to-weight ratio ever. It works incredibly well on track and, even more importantly, is both exhilarating and uniquely rewarding to ride out on the open road.”

The CBR1000RR SP has received a vast array of improvements, including some that come straight from the RC213V-S. Electronics play a big role, including semi-active Γ–hlinsElectronic Control suspension (S-EC), plus a number of rider aids built around the five-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Power and torque have been increased through a higher compression ratio and revised cam timing, while ample use of magnesium (engine covers) and titanium (muffler and—for the first time on a mass-production road bike—fuel tank) have reduced weight and improved mass centralization. The twin-spar aluminum frame’s rigidity balance has been finely adjusted, and the swingarm is stiffer. Brembo monobloc four-piston front brake calipers use high-performance track-ready brake pads, while a narrower radiator and new bodywork achieve a slimmer profile.
