Honda CBR1000RR is a speed demon that perfectly blends power and style.
The CBR1000RR, known in some countries as the Fire blade, is fantastic Honda innovation that combines awesome power and drop-dead good looks! Little wonder it has been labelled the ultimate sport bike.
The aerodynamically sculpted body is hard to ignore. Although the side covers prevent the bike from fully displaying its guts, their purpose is to protect the engine. The slim and streamlined seat that extends to the upswept tail cowl gives a distinctive look to this bike. The Mono-Backbone gravity die-cast (GDC) aluminum frame used on this bike is not only strong and rigid, but lightweight too that enhances the bike’s sharp and smooth handling. The frame facilitates slotting of all the heavy components in the bike close to each other to create a strong centre of mass.
The bike’s full-screen LCD instrument console is fully adapted for a sport bike. It has a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customisable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function. The tachometer features an instant multi-segment readout of engine speed.
The fuel-injected 998cc DOHC inline four-cylinder engine is full to the brim with power and performance. It provides enough power and torque – 123 horsepower at an unbelievable 10,000 rpm and 73 pound-feet of torque at 7,500 rpm – to provide fast and smooth rides. The engine is tuned to deliver sharp acceleration and body-jerking torque even from the lower rev ranges. However, it gets transformed into smooth power as one steadily moves up the power band.
If you are looking for something specific in the rides, this bike may be an answer to your prayers. It has got style, power and a hell-raising ride experience. The bike seems part of you as you accelerate to get a more intense experience. Even standing still, this bike seems ready to pounce! Honda definitely didn’t leave any stone unturned in to give an enthralling riding experience.
This guzzler of a Super bike gives a mileage of around 16kmpl.
The Comfort and Safety:
The long and angled seat sets the right body posture for a speed ride that can be carried on for hours. The front 43mm Big Piston Showa fork is smooth and responsive and the rear Unit Pro-Link® design uses a balance-free rear shock with a double-tube design for a smoother response and better road-holding feel. The available Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) is the first of its kind on a Super bike. The wheels, tires and brakes are all professional grade and, adding to the safety, is the ABS.
The Standard model is available in Red, tri-colour, and with Repsol graphics; the ABS model is available in Red; and the SP flaunts Repsol graphics inspired by the two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez and track-ready race parts.
Bike with electric start, ABS and disc brakes is priced at Rs.17,13,678
