1. Introduction
The original 1992 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade created a revolution in open class
Super Sport motorcycle design. Its combination of big-hitting litre-bike power and
light, middleweight-size chassis created a breathtaking – yet very useable – riding
experience on open road or closed circuit.*
From 2004 to date the CBR1000RR’s story is one of constant evolution and
development. Honda’s ‘Total Control’ concept – a design philosophy running
continuously through every single model – has resulted in a motorcycle in total
balance, combining exceptional performance and handling with a satisfying ability to
extract the very best from every rider.
For over 20 years it has scored solid sales success in class, never once dropping out
of the top 3 across Europe; over 200,000 have been sold in total. Victories in the
World Super Bike (WSB) championship and all-conquering success at the Isle of
Man TT, with average lap speeds of 130mph plus over 37.73 miles of real roads
racing, is testament to the CBR1000RR’s innate capacity.
And it’s racing against the harsh – and constantly variable – reality of real roads
where the CBR1000RR shines brightest. Data taken from Michael Dunlop’s
Superbike-spec CBR1000RR at the 2013 TT proves the point. 27% of a lap was
Press information: 2014 CBR1000RR
spent with the throttle 97.5 % open – or more. The highest actual speed was
recorded on Sulby straight at 310 km/h, and the highest rpm in 6th gear – on the side
of the tyre – was 14,000rpm at Mountain Mile. And while he won both Superbike TT
and Superstock TT races at times he actually lapped quicker on his Superstock-spec
For 2014 it is once again evolution for the CBR1000RR – with an additional, new
direction. For the first time there will be two versions available: an updated
CBR1000RR Fireblade and the track-focused CBR1000RR Fireblade SP.**

2. Model Overview
The CBR1000RR’s chassis – die-cast twin-spar aluminium frame, 43mm inverted
Showa Big Piston Fork and rear shock are unchanged for 2014. Its 999cc fourcylinder engine however has received extensive work on the cylinder head,
improving inlet and exhaust gas flow and combustion efficiency. The result is an
extra 2kW peak power and improved mid-range torque.
In response to customer feedback, the riding position has also been refined, with
revised handlebar and footpeg position.
The 2014 CBR1000RR will be available in three colour options:
Ross White (Tricolour)
Graphite Black
Pearl Glare White
3. Key Features
3.1 Engine
At this stage of the CBR1000RR’s 999.8cc, 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine’s
development, Honda’s engineers focused on the cylinder head – the inlet and
exhaust ports have been re-shaped and polished with the combustion chambers
‘gas-flowed’ to improve efficiency.
Gas-flowing (flow-testing through an air-flow bench) effectively improves both the
quality and quantity of airflow at high rpm when air resistance becomes much
greater; increased combustion efficiency and outright power is the result. The valve
seats have also been revised to match the cylinder head work and the intake funnels
are now ‘slash cut’, a design used in WSB.
Bore and stroke is set at 76mm x 55.1mm with compression ratio of 12.3:1. A nickelsilicon carbide (Ni-SiC) surface treatment on the cylinder walls reduces friction and
ensures reliability.
The engine now makes more power and revs higher, harder for longer. Peak power
of 133kW – up 2kW – arrives at 12,250rpm; torque is improved in the 4-6,000rpm
area peaking with 114Nm delivered at 10,500rpm.
Press information: 2014 CBR1000RR
As ever, the all-round usability of such a potent engine – especially throttle control at
partial openings – has been a principal factor for Honda’s engineers. Key is the
Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection system (PGM-DSFI).
Remapped to match the revised cylinder head and uprated power and torque output,
PGM-DSFI delivers precise fuelling and an accessible power delivery, especially at
low speeds and low rpm, where response is particularly refined, predictable and
At throttle openings of up to 25% the PGM-DSFI delivers relatively fine and
consistent changes in power and torque output – perfect for extracting maximum
drive at full lean. As throttle openings become larger, the changes in output are
progressively greater and the overall result is an engine that responds with great
accuracy to rider throttle input, giving superb feel from the rear tyre and highly
usable, linear acceleration.
The MotoGP-derived slipper clutch ensures full power transmission together with
ultra-smooth gear shifting and light feel at the lever. In the critical hard braking, backshifting corner-entry phase it decreases the torque passed from engine to the rear
wheel, reducing the chance of traction loss and increasing stability.
At 35mm (from 38mm) the exhaust pipe diameters are smaller, increasing torque and
a new for 2014 vertical connecting pipe balances pressure between cylinders two
and three. The integral high-absorption catalyser has a larger volume: together with
the oxygen sensor fuelling is constantly tailored for the most efficient combustion
3.2 Chassis
The CBR1000RR’s die-cast aluminium twin-spar frame balances the strength, rigidity
and lightness required for Super Sport-specification handling and a favourable
power-to-weight ratio. Tightly wrapped around the main components, it also
contributes to mass centralisation, a guiding principle of Honda’s racing and roadgoing design philosophy. Rake is set at 23° 30’ with trail of 96mm and wheelbase of
1,410mm. Kerb weight is 200kg with front/rear weight distribution of 52.6%/47.4%
The aluminium gull-wing swingarm is deliberately long. It operates through MotoGPderived Unit Pro-Link rear suspension to deliver outstanding traction and rider
For 2014, in response to customer feedback, the riding position has been made more
aggressive. The footpegs are set 10mm further back, and the handlebars made
wider, and brought 1° lower and 5° forward compared to the previous model.
A Showa 43mm inverted telescopic fork employs Big Piston Front Fork (BPFF)
technology. Their unique construction – with larger damping volume – effectively
reduces hydraulic pressure generated under compression and extension.
This results in finer control during the initial stroke and smoother damping,
maximising tyre contact with tarmac. Improved overall handling, excellent feel for
front tyre traction and enhanced stability during hard braking follow. Spring preload
and rebound and compression damping are fully adjustable.
Press information: 2014 CBR1000RR
The rear suspension features a fully adjustable Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion.
Instead of a conventional single-tube layout, the system uses a double-tube design:
the damper case and an internal cylinder. The damper piston has no valves – instead
the damping force is generated as displaced oil passes through a separate damping
This allows pressure changes within the shock to be controlled more smoothly than
normal. And because there are no small amounts of oil being used at high pressures
damping response and reaction are improved, and damping force can function
smoothly during load input. Moreover, damping weight is generated consistently
when switching from tension to compression due to even pressure changes.
The Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion delivers more consistent damping, plus
improved shock absorption and greater traction as more consistent contact is
maintained between rear tyre and tarmac. To allow easy and fast adjustment of
compression and rebound damping the adjusters are placed on top of the shock
body, offset to the left.
For well-balanced steering the second-generation Honda Electronic Steering Damper
(HESD) monitors speed and tailors damping force accordingly. It enhances stability
at high speed by minimising the effect of sudden steering angle changes, while also
leaving the steering untouched – and light – at low speed.
Working hand in hand with the sophisticated Showa suspension, rigid 12-spoke cast
aluminium wheels offer superb handling and rider feel; the front 17in x 3.50in wears a
120/70ZR17 tyre, the rear 17in x 6in a 190/50ZR17.
Machined from a single piece of aluminium – to save weight and optimise rigidity –
the four-piston front brake calipers are radially mounted and work 320mm floating
discs. The rear single-piston caliper and 220mm disc add subtle levels of control.
3.3 Equipment
A new compact car-style ‘wave’ design ignition key offers improved security and
greatly reduces the chance of breakage. Also new is the fuel tank cap – it uses an
improved breather design for better venting.
The CBR1000RR uses multi-function LCD instrumentation with a cockpit display
dominated by the digital bar-type linear tachometer that scrolls left to right as engine
speed increases. Beneath this are the main numerical readouts: gear position,
coolant temperature, speedometer, clock/lap time, trip/fuel efficiency/fuel
consumption and odometer/numerical tachometer. At the bottom of the display are
lights for headlight high beam, neutral and indicators.
Clear and easy to read in all light conditions, the tachometer has four display modes:
Conventional, which uses black LCD segments to show current rpm; Reverse, which
employs black LCD segments to show remaining rpm. Peak Hold indicates rpm in
the conventional way and also leaves a tell tale segment showing the peak rpm
achieved while Single Segment uses a single block to show current engine speed. In
addition the odometer may be switched to display engine rpm numerically.
The lap timer features four modes. The display can also show fuel consumption,
average fuel efficiency, distance travelled and total elapsed time. To assist debriefing
Press information: 2014 CBR1000RR
after a session, lap time recall mode shows the fastest lap time and the lap on which
it was set.
To ensure gear shifting at the optimum engine rpm, the 5-level shift indicator display
uses highly visible white LEDs, adjustable for brightness. They illuminate sequentially
as engine rpm rises, finally blinking at a chosen pre-set rpm (default is 13,000rpm but
this can be set between 4,000rpm and 13,000rpm). The interval between sequential
illumination can also be set at 0, 200 or 400rpm.
3.4 Electronic Combined ABS
Honda’s high-performance electronically-controlled Combined Anti-lock Brake
System (electronic Combined ABS) is an option on the CBR1000RR. The system
has been used in every race since 2010 in the IDM German national championship
by the Holzhauer Racing team, whose rider Karl Muggeridge won the series in 2011.
It has also been used by the Honda TT Legends team in the Endurance World
Championship series since 2011.
Electronic Combined ABS has a high level of precision and adjustability, due to the
fact that it is a ‘brake-by-wire’ system. A dedicated ECU converts hydraulic pressure
from the front and rear brake into an electronic signal passed to power units which in
turn generate hydraulic pressure at the calipers.
The system’s electronic control has numerous benefits. Firstly, it eliminates the
“pulsating” effect on the brake lever associated with conventional motorcycle ABS
technology. It also allows the system to be activated instantly as soon as tyre slip is
detected, minimising loss of grip and eliminating the possibility of locking a wheel. It
also means there is absolutely precise control of the speed at which the brake
callipers are activated. The result is extremely stable and neutral bike behaviour,
giving the rider maximum feel and confidence, even under hard braking,
The combined element of the system varies the distribution characteristics of braking
force as the front or rear brakes are applied and released. The system is set up so
that when the rear brake is applied gently, the front brake is not activated. This
allows the rider to use only the rear brake for small adjustments to speed, useful in
Super Sports riding such as when settling the bike for corner entry.
4. Accessories
