2017 Honda CBR1000RR - All Details Revealed



For a long time, the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade has been lacking behind the latest crop of superbikes that have pushed the performance envelope closer to the race spec superbikes. Honda will attempt to claim the top spot back when it launches the all-new 2017 CBR1000RR Fireblade. Now, some fresh details have emerged online about this bike that will be more advanced than we first expected. With the inception of Fireblade, the company has always emphasised on the road manners along with the track performance. Good road manners have been the USP of the outgoing Fireblade, and the updated Fireblade will also carry on this characteristic. That said, racing success is also important to Honda, therefore, the new superbike will get several updates for improved on-track performance.

Honda's track weapon will be more powerful; it will feature new rider aids, electronic semi-active Ohlins suspension, and will be considerably lighter than the outgoing model. The styling of the Fireblade will take an evolutionary route and is likely to be inspired by the Light Weight Super Sports concept, which forms the basis for the upcoming CBR250RR. A source close to the development of the new Fireblade in the road and racing departments suggests that Honda has worked extensively to make the bike more competitive with rivals and a weight loss of around 8 kg has helped make the bike sharper than ever.

While its power figure isn’t going to trouble class leaders like the 198PS BMW S1000RR and the 203PS Kawasaki ZX-10R, it’s still going to be a tangible step forward over the 177PS of the current bike; think around 190PS of peak power. The engine will breathe better, thanks to the new ram-air system redesigned airbox and headstock air intake. Additional contributing factor for the power bump will be the revised fuel-injection system and reduced internal engine friction.

In a bid to save weight, the C-ABS system will be replaced by the Bosch electronic control system. The Bosch 9.1 AMP ABS unit weighs just 3.5kg, while the C-ABS weighed a hefty 10kg. The Bosch unit offers more precisely tuned safety tech like traction control, anti-wheelie system, cornering ABS and much more. The new Fireblade will also feature Bosch electronics package that incorporates the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).
