2020 Honda Fireblade

We have all the news on the latest incarnation of Honda's infamous CBR1000RR Fireblade

Since its original 1992 introduction Honda's iconic Fireblade has evolved into an incredible 1000cc sports motorcycle. And it's also been the base of a competitive race machine, on short circuits around the world and the roads of the Isle of Man TT. But time - and competition - marches on, and for 2020 Honda is drawing a line under where the CBR1000RR Fireblade has been, and looking forward to where it's going. Two brand-new motorcycles – the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade – have been created, with heavy involvement from Honda Racing Corporation, to carry the legend forward. Leaning heavily on the engine and chassis technology of the RC213V-S 'street-legal MotoGP machine', with aerodynamics drawn from the RC213V MotoGP bike, both versions of the new Fireblade have been designed from the ground up - in terms of engine, handling and aerodynamics - for outright track performance.

Here's what you need to know:

  • An all new inline four-cylinder engine derived from MotoGP technologies and producing mighty 160kw (214.5bhp).
  • A new aluminium diamond frame with a longer swingarm, based on the RC213V-S design.
  • Enhanced throttle-by-wire improves feel and is linked to an electronics package comprising of power, engine brake, wheelie control and optimised Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). Plus adjustable ABS for track riding.
  • Showa Big Piston Forks and Balance-Free Rear Cushion Light grace the CBR1000RR-R whilst the SP is enhanced with new Ohlins 43mm NPX forks and second generation Ohlins software offers finer controls of both front and rear settings. 
  • The SP also features new Brembo Stylema four-piston calipers and both models see a new rear tyre size of 200/55-ZR17.
  • A fully customisable five inch TFT display offers intuitive control operated by a simplified four-way switch on the left handlebar.
  • Honda Smart Key (keyless ignition).
  • MotoGP inspired aerodynamics with a more compact riding position and winglets to increase downforce and improve braking stability.

These are just the highlights, find out the full details of each model by following the links below.
