Marc Marquez dominated the 2013 and ’14 MotoGP seasons with the help of his #93 Honda. Now is your chance to rule the street or the track with this new 2016 CBR1000RR SP. With only 15 miles, this collector’s item was built with all the right parts.
The SP stands for Special Edition, and it used unique cylinder heads along with internal improvements to offer 2.7 more horsepower than a “regular RR”. But that is just the beginning. If the suspension looks familiar, Öhlins also engineered the inboard coil-overs found on the Lamborghini Aventador. Italian inspiration can also be seen on the Brembo brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires.
To offer more grip, the frame was tuned for the unique suspension. The inverted front fork is 1mm larger than the Showa units found on the base model. Aluminum yokes were replaced with CNC machined steel on top and bottom. The riding position is among the best in this category, and the 43 mm rear suspension is fully adjustable. One of the best features is HESD or Honda Electronic Steering Damper. It constantly monitors your steering angle to tune out shimmies and prevent a tank-slapper.
It also adds firmness to the steering once you are cruising. The electronic ABS has its own dedicated computer that activates as soon as tire slip is detected. Stability control is a great benefit in our book. It also controls brakeforce distribution to prevent nose dives during panic stops.
The pistons, rods, and crank are hand-picked and matched perfectly before the engine is assembled. With 12.3:1 compression, it offers 178 horsepower and 84 lb-ft of torque. Low-friction coatings on the cylinder walls and other hardened parts offer years of worry-free running. Intake and exhaust ports are polished and gasket-matched to extract every ounce of power.
