Honda's New CBR1000RR Inspired By a Champion
No motorcycle connects rider, machine and road like a sportbike. The immediate acceleration, the chassis that feels like an extension of your own skeleton, the power, the handling—and the bigger the sportbike, the more intense the experience.
Honda’s CBR1000RR has long been the ultimate Superbike for experienced aficionados, and the 2015 CBR1000RR is really something special. First off, we’re celebrating Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez’s back-to-back World Championships with some special graphics packages on the standard and SP models. Then there’s the CBR1000RR ABS version, with the most sophisticated brake package in the class. But here’s the biggest news: Track-day enthusiasts need to check out the CBR1000RR SP Repsol Edition version. With fully adjustable Öhlins front and rear suspension, Brembo front brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC premium tires. The SP also includes a special lightweight subframe with solo seat cowl. The SP doesn’t stop there, with hand-selected engine parts for weight and balance, including pistons and connecting rods.
2015 CBR1000RR Options
The 2015 CBR1000RR is available in three trim levels. The Standard model is available in Red, tri-color, and with Repsol graphics. The ABS model is available in Red, and the SP comes wrapped in Repsol graphics inspired by the two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez and track-ready race parts.
Front and Rear Suspension
The CBR1000RR standard features top notch suspension components both front and rear. Up front, the 43mm Big Piston Showa fork is smooth and responsive; in the back, the Unit Pro-Link design uses a balance-free rear shock with a double-tube design for a smoother response and better road-holding feel (traction performance).
The CBR1000RR’s full-screen LCD instrumentation includes a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.
Revolutionary Doesn’t Begin to Describe These Brakes.
The available Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) is the first of its kind on a Superbike. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well they work. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.
