2023 Honda CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade 30th Anniversary Now In Malaysia – RM208,800

The 2023 Honda CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade now lands in Malaysia in the form of the unique 30th Anniversary edition. Priced at RM208,800 the updated model gets engine updates and more for the new year.

Although major parts of the CBR1000RR-R SP remains the same, the flagship superbike from Honda has been refined for better mid-range acceleration, something that could also help HRC at the WorldSBK.

While peak power remains at 214hp @ 14,500rpm, Honda has revamped the intake ports, airbox and mid-section exhaust. Interestingly, Honda also increased the final drive sprocket to 43 from the previous 40.

Moving on to electronics, Honda has improved the traction control with a new algorithm for better rear-wheel traction followed by revised Nissin callipers while the front is equipped with Brembo callipers.

Other key features include:

  • LED light setup
  • TFT dash
  • engine braking
  • traction control
  • wheelie control
  • launch control
  • cornering ABS

Nonetheless, the main aspect that caught our attention is of course the 30th Anniversary livery that gives a nod to the 1992 Honda Fireblade.

According to the Japanese manufacturer, the bodywork is carried out by Hiroaki Tsukui, the same man behind the original Fireblade livery in 1992.
