2023 Honda CBR1000RR Features & Benefits

  • CBR1000RR
  • CBR1000RR ABS

Offering the ultimate combination of value and performance, Honda's CBR1000RR comes from a lineage of legendary sport bikes with countless racing accolades. Its precise cornering, adrenaline-inducing acceleration and impressive braking capabilities are a result of Honda's "Total Control" design philosophy, which delivers a remarkably connected feeling on the pavement. Available with ABS or conventional brakes, the value-oriented CBR1000RR is the ideal counterpart to its track-focused sibling, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.

Renowned for its user-friendly performance, the CBR1000RR's 998cc inline four-cylinder engine features modern technologies like Diamond-Like Carbon coating (DLC) and magnesium covers. Honed through years of racing, where control is key, the powerplant combines high engine speeds with a tractable power curve that suits city streets and canyons just as well as track-day riding.

  • Valve lift and timing optimized for high engine speeds, with a peak of 13,000 rpm.
  • Thickness of different areas of pistons are optimized for minimum weight, and compression ratio is 13.0:1.
  • Piston rings have DLC coating for a superb sealing property.
  • Air-intake duct and air box design minimizes air resistance. High fuel-discharge pressure promotes fuel atomization and maximizes combustion efficiency, while throttle response is maximized by intake funnels with a slash-cut design.
  • Magnesium construction of the oil pan and ignition cover contribute to a low engine weight.
  • Slipper clutch has a low clutch-spring load. Die-cast aluminum assist cams (transmitting & receiving) contribute to a low weight, while optimized clearance between the cams make for a good clutch-lever feel.
  • Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) measures front and rear wheel speeds and body roll angle to maximize performance in a wide range of conditions. Wheelie control is also standard.
  • The rider can choose how strongly the engine brake is applied when the throttle is closed during deceleration; three levels of adjustability are available, depending on rider preference.
  • Adapted from the RC213V-S, the throttle-by-wire system features a built-in Accelerator Position Sensor for optimal response and rideability.
  • Full-color thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal meter features Street, Circuit, and Mechanic displays and is designed to not be intrusive for the rider.
  • A five-level Power Selector enables on-the-fly adjustment of riding modes, HSTC and suspension electronics, adapting the machine to changing conditions.

Designed around Honda's Total Control philosophy, the CBR1000RR's chassis focuses on light weight and maneuverability, the frame and swingarm striking an ideal balance between weight and rigidity. When combined with Honda's mass-centralization efforts, the result is a lightweight motorcycle that makes longer days in the saddle less strenuous. Thanks to a narrow, minimalist design that has long marked the CBR lineup, the machine has a striking appearance when parked at the local overlook or in the paddock.

  • Finely tuned frame with uses wall and swingarm-section thicknesses that contribute to light weight and appropriate flex characteristics.
  • Lightweight die-cast aluminum subframe.
  • Wheels have five Y-spokes for aerodynamic stability, while thickness is minimized for low weight.
  • Highly rigid Tokico four-piston opposed radial-mounted front-brake calipers with high-friction brake pads provide strong stopping power.
  • Radiator has a high-density core that achieves high heat dissipation while allowing a narrow width and low weight.
  • Minimalist, aggressive, aerodynamic design achieves narrow widths at front of fairings.
  • Titanium fuel tank is manufactured using ultra-deep drawing process, achieving low weight and high mass centralization.
  • Showa 43mm large-volume BPF inverted fork and Balance Free Rear Cushion (BFRC) shock.
  • Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) detects vehicle speed and adjusts damping proportionally, helping maintain low-speed maneuverability while providing predictable high-speed handling.
  • Available anti-lock braking system (ABS) features rear-lift control (RLC), for smooth, effective braking on corner entry; braking force is controlled according to lean angle, and hard trail braking is allowed.
  • Headlights, taillights and turn signals are lightweight and efficient LEDs.

Transferable one-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a HondaCare® Protection Plan

  • Meets current CARB and EPA standards.
  • Models sold in California meet current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.
