Honda Unveils Updated CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP With 30th Anniversary Livery

The Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP gets engine updates and more for 2022.

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.

Meanwhile, the standard Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade now gets an electronic steering damper along with Showa suspension.

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 marquee, the bodywork is carried out by Hiroaki Tsukui, the same man behind the original Fireblade livery in 1992.
