The Fireblade is a benchmark of what an open-class sports motorcycle should be like. The design is referred to as “Total Control” which focuses on cornering, acceleration and braking. The 2017 model is Honda’s 25th anniversary for the CBR1000RR SP.

“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.”
