Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade revealed

Ahead of the 2019 iteration of EICMA, Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has officially pulled the wraps off the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade.

Heavily inspired by the RC213V MotoGP machine and its street legal RC213V-S counterpart, the 2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is powered by the most powerful inline four cylinder engine that Honda has ever made.

The new Rebel 500 now gets all-LED lighting and a new LED headlamp unit that looks cooler than before. For starters, both bikes have been equipped with a slipper clutch that Honda claims reduces clutch-lever effort by 30 percent, apart from the obvious advantage it brings to added control under deceleration.

In both variants, a cutting-edge aerodynamic package - also influenced by HRC's multiple championship-winning RC213V - works in tandem with a new Bosch six-axis IMU.

Known amongst Malaysian sports riders as the "Rabbit", the Honda CBR1000RR, also known as the Fireblade, has a sterling reputation.

Underneath its new skin, the CBR1000RR-R gets a new twin-spar aluminium frame for increased rigidity. Meanwhile braking is done by Brembo Stylema calipers in the front and a Brembo monoblock caliper at the rear. The bike comes with semi-active Ohlins EC 43mm NPX forks up front and an Ohlins TTX36 Smart-EC monoshock.

Honda is yet to officially announce the launch of the motorcycle in the Indian market, but it is expected to be introduced after its display at this year's EICMA.
