Honda India recently decreased the price of its CBR1000RR-R Fireblade which is sold through its premium BigWing showrooms. The bike is currently available in the country with a starting price of Rs 23.11 lakh instead of the earlier Rs 32.68 lakh.
However, the brand has made this move silently and didn’t share any statement on the price drop but the price list on the official website has been updated already. The Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade looks to have become more affordable for a number of Indians. While the bike is wonderful, the original price tag deterred many buyers from visiting the BigWing Showroom.
Powering the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is a 999cc, in-line, four-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 212 bhp @ 14,500 rpm and an utmost torque of 113 Nm @ 12,500 rpm. The engine remains mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The kerb weight of the all-new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade stands at 202.1kgs while the SP variant tips the scale at 201.3kgs. The aerodynamic winglets offered to the motorcycle specifically increase the downforce and improve the braking power.
The motorcycle has been further equipped with a full-colour TFT display adding to its superiority while the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) offered to the Fireblade allows gaining the slip rate control. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with three riding modes in addition to allowing the rider to customize the power and brakes.
Coming to the SP variant of the Honda CBR1000RR-R, the motorcycle has been offered second-gen 43mm front forks by Ohlins in addition to getting extra Brembo callipers to make it more track-focused in comparison to the standard variant. The rear of the motorcycle has been equipped with Ohlins TTX36 Smart-EC monoshock unit. The braking duties on the motorcycle are handled by Brembo Stylema four-piston radial callipers at the front while the brand had equipped the rear with Brembo monoblock calliper borrowed from the Honda RC213V-S.
