2017 Honda CBR1000RR ABS

/
TOTAL CONTROL.

Superbikes have always been special machines, offering levels of power, handling, and refinement no other streetbikes can match. The new 25th anniversary CBR1000RR is a Superbike where the rider comes first. Where you get a degree of connection unlike anything in the class. Available in three distinct model options this year, it’s designed to dominate in the most important category of all: rider satisfaction.

The all-new 2017 CBR1000RR is lighter, more powerful and faster than any CBR1000RR we’ve ever produced. Trackdays your specialty? Racetrack riding puts special demands on any machine, and you’ll find Honda’s new CBR1000RR SP is up to that challenge. Available in limited numbers, it has all the features of our new 2017 CBR1000RR, but adds premium Öhlins electronic suspension, Brembo brakes, a titanium muffler, and more. In addition to the SP, Honda is offering an even more exotic CBR1000RR SP2 in extremely limited numbers for the most serious enthusiasts and professional racers. The CBR1000RR SP2 incorporates all the special features of the CBR1000RR SP, and adds bigger intake and exhaust valves and lighter forged Marchesini wheels.

Engineering

  • ASSISTED SLIPPER CLUTCH: Superbikes can deliver a great deal of back-torque through the driveline, upsetting handling—not the CBR1000RR models. Its Honda-designed assisted slipper clutch is the same type used on our MotoGP bikes. The design does away with the need for heavy clutch springs, ensuring full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.
  • IMPROVED RADIATOR DESIGN: Almost an inch narrower, featuring a new high-density core, and 100 grams lighter than last year’s model, the new radiator tucks in tighter and cools just as efficiently.

Overview

  • ALL MODELS: All 2017 CBR1000RR models have been totally redesigned, with new engines, chassis, suspensions and bodywork.
  • CBR1000RR ABS: The new 2017 CBR1000RR is substantially lighter, more than 24mm narrower, features our first Superbike throttle-by-wire system and more. The chassis is more responsive, and the bike features a full LED lighting package.
  • HONDA ELECTRONIC STEERING DAMPER (HESD): Most steering dampers only sense handlebar-deflection speed. The Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) is way more sophisticated. It also detects vehicle speed, and adjusts damping proportionally. That helps maintain low-speed maneuverability while providing excellent, predictable high-speed handling.
