The 2017 CBR1000RR SP and CBR1000RR SP2 Fireblades will be joining the standard Fireblade in Honda dealers around the country this month to complete the 25th anniversary line up.

To celebrate this reunion, Honda has announced a special ride away launch offer of $21,499 on the Standard CBR1000RR, including free on-roads until 31 December.

Fully loaded with cutting-edge electronics packages, the 2017 Fireblades are underpinned by the ‘Next Stage Total Control’ concept, with the focus on a mechanical evolution of perfecting perfection – control, power and agility.

90 percent of the major components in the 2017 CBR1000RR are brand new including a new electronic control system and ABS as standard.

Equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, Riding Mode Select System, Power Selector and full Showa suspension, the Standard Blade is available in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic and Victory Red.

The CBR1000RR SP has a host of added features from the standard variant, including semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control suspension, a new titanium exhaust system and fuel tank plus Honda’s first lithium ion battery in a motorcycle.

The RC213V-S MotoGP-derived technology elevates the SP riding experience even further, with Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS, a Quickshifter and is available in Tri-colour.

Also available in Tri-Colour is the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2, but is instantly recognised by its exclusively built Marchesini wheels – a model for true enthusiast and primarily built for race modification. The SP2 has further weight reductions sought from a redesigned cylinder head, pistons and engine composition which leads to more power.

The SP can be purchased for an MLP of $28,499 and the SP2 for an MLP of $34,999. For more information on the entire Honda range visit your nearest Honda Dealer, ring 1 300 1 HONDA or go to
