We present here for sale this Honda CBR1000RR SP ABS in Repsol Colours. *Pre-registered with 0 Miles!* Fantastic, head turning bike with performance to match! The CBR1000RR SPs die-cast aluminium twin-spar frame is based on that of the standard machine, with modifications to match the ?hlins suspension. Tuning the frame to increase rider feedback with the suspensions different performance parameters proved critical during development and the rigidity balance around the rear suspension mount has been revised to give more flex and therefore feel for traction. The ?hlins inverted front fork has an outer diameter tube of 55mm (1mm more than the Showa unit) and the revised top and bottom yoke use a steel, rather than aluminium, steering stem. The top yoke itself features high precision CNC machining and features a greater surface area in contact with the forks, improving rigidity. As on the CBR1000RR the aluminium gull-wing swingarm operates through MotoGP-derived Unit Pro-Link rear suspension. Rake is set at 23 30 with trail of 96mm and wheelbase of 1410mm. Kerb weight is 199kg with front/rear weight distribution of 52.7%/47.3%. The second-generation Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) monitors speed and tailors damping force accordingly. It enhances stability at high speed by minimising sudden steering angle changes, while also leaving the steering untouched and light at low speed. The SP version has the same aggressive riding position as the standard machine, offering outstanding control, leverage and acceleration. Compared to the 2013 year model CBR1000RR, the footpegs are set 10mm back and the handlebars are wider, lower (by 1) and further forward (by 5). A new rear subframe with no need to support a pillion is lighter and the revised seat material firmer. A new screen delivers improved high-speed aerodynamics rather than wind protection. Specialists from ?hlins worked with Hondas engineers and test riders during all stages of development. Fully adjustable, the 43mm inverted fork and rear shock were developed specifically for the CBR1000RR SP, to offer superbly balanced all-round performance and greater potential for cutting lap times on a closed circuit. The 12-spoke cast aluminium wheels perfectly complement the new suspension setup. The front 17in x 3.50in rim wears super- sticky, track-ready and fully road legal Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres; a 120/70-ZR17 front and a 190/50ZR17 rear on a 17in x 6in rim. Brembo mono block four-piston calipers were chosen because of their compatibility and performance potential with the ?hlins fork. The caliper body is standard but Brembo manufactured special pistons for use in the new machine, with pad material designed to give consistent and linear feel when braking hard from high speed. The bike is available for viewing and is well worth a look. Finance is available and is subject to status. Nationwide delivery can be arranged from as little as 60.
