Known for being the best overall liter bike package, the CBR® 1000RR cements its stellar reputation with several improvements for 2014, including a new ride position, a new windscreen and engine and exhaust modifications for more power and torque. There’s also a new Pearl White finish on our standard and ABS models.
For the track day enthusiast, there’s even more great news: a special CBR® 1000RR SP version with fully adjustable –hlins front and rear suspension, Brembo front brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC premium tires. A special lightweight subframe and a new-design rear single-seat cowl also shave weight. Plus, it features hand-selected engine parts for weight and balance, including pistons and connecting rods to improve track performance.
The future’s looking bright indeed—especially if you’re on a 2014 CBR® 1000RR.
The CBR® 1000RR’s full-screen LCD instrumentation includes a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.
- Honda® Electronic Steering Damper (HESD®)
With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels work with the new fork and enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.
- Big Piston Fork (BPF) Front Suspension
The CBR® 1000RR’s front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The 43mm Showa fork is smoother, more responsive and gives you excellent front-end feedback.
There’s no mistaking the new 2014 CBR® 1000RR, thanks to its layered fairing bodywork. Lean, mean, more aggressive from front to back, it’s a real attention getter, even when it’s standing still.
- Centrally Located Fuel Tank
The CBR® 1000RR’s 4.7-gallon fuel tank is positioned in the center of the chassis and low in the frame. This allows for a more compact design, but more importantly it helps centralize the bike’s mass. Increased mass centralization means the CBR® is more responsive to rider input, especially when leaning the bike into a turn or standing it up at the exit.
- Dual-Stage Fuel Injection
The CBR® 1000RR features two sets of injectors per cylinder for both low- and high-rpm performance, instantaneous high-rpm response and great low-rpm metering and clean running. Refined EFI settings make the engine even more manageable, with smoother throttle response specifically at smaller throttle openings.
- Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis
A four-piece aluminum frame design balances strength, rigidity and lightness. Wrapped tightly around the engine, the structure helps centralize the CBR® 1000RR’s mass for more responsive handling—some of the best anywhere on two wheels.
Superbikes can deliver a great deal of back-torque through the driveline, upsetting handling. Not the CBR® 1000RR. Its Honda®-designed assisted slipper clutch is the same type used on our MotoGP bikes. The design does away with the need for heavy clutch springs, ensuring full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.
- Unit Pro-Link® Rear Suspension
The CBR® 1000RR features front and rear suspension. In the back, the Unit Pro-Link® design uses a new balance-free rear shock with a double-tube design for a smoother and more accurate response.
