HSTC provides ultimate control for the rider. It’s as if the bike obeys the rider’s every command with HSTC (Honda Selective Torque Control), evolved from decades of Honda Racing experience. Using the IMU and communicating throughout the bike, HSTC delivers stability in almost any situation. Nine levels of traction control including an off switch provide a new dimension of command over the road.
The TFT-LCD meter displays everything the rider needs to communicate with the bike. The display is a first for Honda and offers street, racetrack, and mechanic modes, making it easy for the rider to feel at one with the bike.
Every light on the CBR1000RR is LED and has been redesigned in the pursuit of aerodynamics. Compact and bright, the two front lights promote a sleek racing image over the face of the bike. The tail, stop, front and back indicators all use LED lighting.
Enjoy seamless acceleration with an auto-blip function. There’s no need to fumble with a clutch on the new CBR1000RR, so quick and smooth gear transitions take riding to a new level of excitement without having to adjust the throttle. Experience a new dimension of power and performance with nimble and seamless shifting.
Five Y-shaped spokes deliver exceptional weight savings and rigidity for performance on wheels that reduce weight by optimising wall thickness. The newly engineered wheels incorporate radial-mount brake calipers that are light, yet offer exceptional stiffness and braking performance for sharp and nimble handling.
MotoGP bikes use titanium mufflers, and now, so does the CB1000RR. Shaving 3kg off the muffler wasn’t easy, but it yielded a result that delivers lightweight and a sensual growl. The new muffler incorporates an internal exhaust valve that improves performance and sounds like speed.
Both front and back suspension offer controlled damping from ÖHLINS—a Honda first. In active mode, a stepping motor uses information from sensors to control the damping force of both the front and rear suspensions to respond to riding conditions. Designed to stabilise the bike when accelerating or decelerating and in cornering, smart controlled cushioning offers the rider a more stable and fun ride.
The pursuit of ultimate aerodynamic design over the fairings led to a narrower stance and lighter weight, shaving 30mm off the radiator size. The LED headlights sit over the air intake for a sleek and performance-driven design.
