1. Model overview
The 2012 CBR1000RR builds on the legacy of “total control” that has shaped its predecessors for
20 years since the introduction of its original ground-breaking forerunner, the CBR900RR, at the
EICMA show in 1991. Since then, successive evolutions of the machine have layered
advancement upon advancement, while retaining its defining strength of a perfect balance
between power and control.
Under the overall development concept of “natural evolution of Super Sports”, the 2012
CBR1000RR development team have concentrated their efforts on the chassis to enhance riding
enjoyment even further. In particular new wheels and new front and rear suspension systems
have been introduced for even better handling, traction and braking performance. The advanced
Balance Free Rear Cushion rear suspension is a world-first for a production motorcycle.
The team has also created a new, even more aggressive styling to better communicate the
dynamism and sheer speed of the new CBR1000RR. In addition, the already comprehensive
instrument panel has additional functionality making the bike more user-friendly, helping riders
get the most from Honda’s most exciting and advanced Super Sport machine yet: the 20th
anniversary CBR1000RR Fireblade.
In the words of Hirofumi Fukunaga, Large Project Leader for the 2012 CBR1000RR “This is a
model allowing all super sports bike lovers, including the most experienced, to savour the joy of
owning the CBR1000RR, while at the same time feeling more fun in sporty riding and more joy of
riding than ever before, whether it be on winding roads or at a circuit.”

3. Model details
3.1 Styling
Embodying speed and dynamism
The previous CBR1000RR was designed around the keynote themes of ‘compact dimensions’,
‘lightweight’ and ‘mass centralisation’. For 2012, it was decided that the styling should underline
the sheer speed and dynamic potential of the CBR1000RR. Some styling keys remain – for
example, the familiar vertical slit in the fairing side panels has been retained, providing visual
tension. The result is a more graceful profile that draws the eye from the sharper nose, and
revised air intakes, to a more elegant tail. The overall effect is a more dynamic and faster-looking
machine, one whose strongly-defined lines leave no doubt as to its performance potential.
Aerodynamically functional layered fairing
The new CBR1000RR incorporates the layered fairing concept resulting in improved functionality.
The fairing creates a large pocket of calm air around the rider, improving comfort, while also
helping draw air through the cooling system. These intricately worked surfaces also add to the
machine’s aggressive looks. An integrated chin spoiler in the nose also reduces aerodynamic lift
at speed, improving handling.

3.2 Suspension
Unique Balance Free Rear Cushion
The main objectives for further developing the CBR1000RR’s suspension set-up were a smoother
suspension action, improved rider feel and increased grip and traction. The rear suspension
system uses the Unit Pro-Link configuration and introduces the first Balance Free Rear Cushion
on a production motorcycle.
Developed in conjunction with world-leading suspension specialists Showa, instead of the
conventional single-tube layout, the Balance Free Rear Cushion uses a double-tube design: the
damper case and an internal cylinder. The damper piston features no valves. Instead the damping
force is generated as displaced oil passes through a separate damping component.
In the conventional structure, the compression-side damping force was generated in two places
with the main and sub damping valves, but elimination of the sub valve and concentration in one
place allows pressure changes within the cushion to be controlled even more smoothly. And
because there is no small amount of oil being used at high pressures, damping force response is
improved and damping force can function smoothly during load input. Moreover, damping force
can be generated smoothly when switching from tension to compression due to smooth pressure
changes.
The Balance Free Rear Cushion delivers more consistent damping over the duration of a ride,
plus improved shock absorption and therefore greater traction since contact is more consistently
maintained between the rear tyre and the road or track surface. This technology has been proven
in both the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hour race and the MFJ Superbike All Japan Road Race
Championship. Indeed a CBR1000RR Fireblade fitted with a Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion
won the 2010 Japanese Superbike championship, underlining the advantages of this advanced
new suspension solution.

Comparison of damping force characteristics
Easily accessed rear suspension adjusters
The combination of Honda’s Unit Pro-Link rear suspension and the Showa Balance Free Rear
Cushion brings more than simply improved rear suspension performance and increased traction.
To allow road and track riders to more easily adjust the rear compression and rebound damping
performance, the adjusters have been placed prominently on the top of the shock body, offset to
the left. As a result the rear suspension can be more quickly adapted to suit different riding
conditions and requirements.

Press information for 2012 Fireblade
Big Piston Front Fork
To complement the Balance Free Rear Cushion, the front suspension system now comprises a
pair of inverted 43mm telescopic forks with Showa’s Big Piston Front Fork technology. The forks
use a unique construction with a bigger damping volume to effectively reduce the hydraulic
pressure generated as the forks compress and extend. The result is reduced play during the initial
stroke and smoother damping, helping maximise tyre contact with the road or track, giving the
rider improved handling, a reassuring feel from the front tyre and enhanced stability during hard
braking.

3.3 Wheels
12-spoke cast aluminium wheels
The 2012 CBR1000RR features new 12-spoke cast aluminium wheels which offer more
consistent rigidity. Together with the new suspension, these wheels provide improved handling
and feedback for the rider.
Front wheel rigidity (vertical rigidity)
3.4 Frame
Aluminium frame with optimised rigidity balance
The CBR1000RR’s four-piece aluminium frame combines all the most desirable attributes of a
high-performance frame. It delicately balances the strength, rigidity and lightness required for both
superb handling and a strong power-to-weight ratio. Wrapped tightly around the main components
of the machine, the frame also contributes to the centralisation of mass, a guiding principle of
Honda’s racing and road-going bikes that contributes to both stability and responsive handling. At
the rear of the frame the gull-wing swingarm is deliberately long. It works with the innovative Unit
Pro-Link rear suspension, a configuration derived from Honda’s 990cc RC211V MotoGP racer, to
deliver outstanding traction and high levels of rider feedback.
3.5 Steering Damping
Second generation HESD Honda Electronic Steering Damper
Conventional hydraulic steering dampers increase high-speed stability but bring unfavourably
heavy steering at low speeds. The CBR1000RR’s HESD system monitors the bike’s speed and
tailors the damping force accordingly. It enhances stability at speed by minimising sudden
steering angle changes while also leaving the steering light and uncorrupted at low speed.

Press information for 2012 Fireblade
3.6 Brakes
Unrivalled braking power
Since 2009 the CBR1000RR has been offered with optional electronically-controlled “Combined
ABS” (C-ABS), a high performance antilock braking system which has been specifically developed
for Super Sport machines. This revolutionary system does away with the pulsating effect
associated with conventional motorcycle ABS technology, leaving the rider free to enjoy safe and
powerful braking without the risk of locking a wheel, even on a racetrack. At the same time the
Combined Braking System also continually optimises the front/rear distribution of the braking
effort being applied.
Exhaustive testing on both road and track has shown that the C-ABS system allows the full use of
the available braking power without wheel locking or pitching. Modifications to the amount of front
braking activated when first applying the rear brake on the 2012 model create an even more
stable braking performance.
The powerful front brakes comprise a pair of radially-mounted four-piston calipers and a pair of
floating 320mm discs. To reduce weight and ensure optimal rigidity, the monoblock calipers are
machined from a single piece of aluminium.
3.7 Equipment
Full LCD Instrumentation
The new CBR1000RR uses multi-function LCD instruments to communicate everything from gear
position to coolant temperature and speed. The cockpit display is dominated by a digital bar-type
linear tachometer that scrolls from left to right as the 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 such functions as headlight high beam, neutral and indicator function.
Customisable tachometer
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 uses black
LCD segments to show remaining rpm; Peak Hold, which indicates rpm in the conventional way
and also leaves a telltale segment showing the peak rpm achieved; and Single Segment, which
uses a single segment to show current engine speed. In addition, the odometer may be switched
to display engine rpm numerically.

Press information for 2012 Fireblade
Lap timer
Four modes are available on the lap timer, an important tool for circuit riding. As well as the lap
timer itself, the display can show fuel consumption, average fuel efficiency, travelled distance and
total elapsed time. To assist debriefing after a session, lap time recall mode shows the fastest lap
time and the lap on which it was set.
5-level shift indicator
To maximise performance and ensure gear shifting at the optimum engine rpm, the 5-level shift
indicator display uses highly visible white LEDs, adjustable for brightness. The LEDs illuminate
sequentially as the engine rpm rises, finally blinking at a chosen preset 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.

3.8 Engine
Compact, powerful and lightweight liquid-cooled DOHC inline 4-cylinder
The Fireblade has always used an inline 4-cylinder engine combining a high specific power output
with the low weight and compact dimensions required for a compact, agile chassis. The engine is
designed to achieve high engine speeds, with a bore of 76mm, a stroke of 55.1mm – giving a total
displacement of 999cm3 – and a nickel-silicon carbide (Ni-SiC) surface treatment on the cylinder
walls to reduce friction and ensure complete reliability, even in competition use. Lightweight
engine internals contribute both to engine performance and handling, by helping reduce the
machine’s overall weight.
Precise control
The race-bred Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection system (PGM-DSFI) has revised
settings for 2012 to ensure even more precise fuelling and a usable power delivery at all times.
Particular attention has been paid to the PGM-DSFI settings at small throttle openings.
The CBR1000RR engineers focused on the engine’s response at low speeds so that when riding
winding country roads or when cornering at low speeds, the response will be delicate, predictable
and progressive. By analysing throttle inputs and engine response in these conditions, the 2012
CBR1000RR achieves an improved level of control at throttle openings of up to 25%. At such
openings the fuel injection has been set to deliver small changes in power and torque output.
Then, as the throttle opening becomes larger, these changes in output become progressively
greater. The result is an engine that responds with greater accuracy to the rider’s inputs, giving a
greater road-holding feel from the rear tyre, enhanced manoeuvrability, even on demanding
sections of road or racetrack, and highly usable, linear acceleration.
Output characteristics for all throttle opening angle image
Smooth, accessible performance
Despite its prodigious levels of power and torque, every effort has been made to ensure the
engine functions as an integrated part of a balanced Super Sport riding experience. In 2010 the
alternator flywheels were made bigger and crankshaft rigidity increased accordingly. These
changes increased the inertial mass of the crankshaft by 6.87%, ensuring a smoother and more
consistent power delivery together with improved throttle control. Refinements such as a move to
an aluminium cylinder head sealing bolt, a thin-walled flange section for the exhaust pipe and a
smaller fan motor were made at the same time to avoid an increase in overall weight.
11
Press information for 2012 Fireblade
Exhaust emissions
The exhaust system has been made to reduce the emission of harmful exhaust gases. A highabsorption catalyser material has been adopted within the exhaust, which together with the
oxygen sensor, constantly tailors the fuelling for the most efficient combustion mixture ensures full
EURO-3 compliance.
Assisted slipper clutch
The CBR1000RR is fitted with a slipper clutch of the same type as that used in the 800cc RC212V
MotoGP racer. The design ensures full power transmission together with ultra-smooth gear
shifting and a light lever feel. In the critical corner-entry phase, when the rider must brake, judge
their cornering line and shift down the gearbox simultaneously, the slipper clutch decreases the
burden by reducing the torque passed from the engine to the rear wheel, reducing the chance of
rear tyre losing traction and therefore increasing stability and ensuring smooth clutch operation.

5. Model history
In November 1991 Honda unveiled the CBR900RR - a machine that would revolutionise the
Super Sport sector. Since the arrival of the first Superbike, the CB750, more than 20 years earlier,
much had changed. Chassis rigidity, four cylinder engine performance and suspension
sophistication had all evolved considerably but Super Sport machines had also grown heavy. A
dedicated team at Honda, working under Tadao Baba, knew there was another way. Reduce a
motorcycle’s bulk and weight and you can achieve more speed with less power. Such thinking
also enables you to build a bike with the braking and cornering performance to leave rivals
breathless; a machine so pure in its responses that an experience akin to riding a purpose-built
race bike can be made available in a production motorcycle. The launch of the CBR900RR
Fireblade changed the Super Sport world forever.
The CBR900RR remained a high performance benchmark through the 1990s and into the first
years of the 21st century. This was achieved through careful evolution, the relentless development
of new technologies and an unwavering dedication to the “total control” concept that had made the
original CBR900RR such a landmark machine. Engine capacity rose from 893cc through 919cc
and 929cc to 954cc, the corresponding escalation in power output matched all the time by
advances in frame, braking and suspension technology.
MotoGP’s move to include 990cc four-stroke machines from 2002 and the changes to the World
Superbike Championship regulations in 2004, raising displacement to 1000cc, both shaped the
evolution of the Fireblade in the 21st century. The result was an all-new machine that elevated the
Super Sport experience to new levels: the CBR1000RR Fireblade.
Launched in 2004, the CBR1000RR held nothing back. It was the result of a driving concept as
pure as the one behind the first Fireblade: “the crown jewel of Honda Racing DNA, the strongest
RR”. The all-new 998cc engine delivered searing performance from a unit so light and compact it
allowed the development team to realise another key objective: mass centralisation. The bike’s
weight was concentrated, increasing both stability and manoeuvrability. There was more. Unit
Pro-Link rear suspension delivered excellent road holding. A centre-up exhaust system, with its
underseat muffler, further optimised the machine’s weight distribution. Minimalist fairings reduced
aerodynamic drag for no loss of high-speed stability. And the first generation Honda Electronic
Steering Damper (HESD) married secure high speed running with light, responsive steering at low
speeds.
In 2008 an all-new CBR1000RR delivered still-greater Super Sport satisfaction. More compact,
more powerful and more sophisticated than its predecessor, the new machine used the same
thinking on mass centralisation that had shaped the previous model to further reduce handling
inertia. The result was a 1000cc bike that didn’t lose out to 600cc rivals on twisting roads or tight,
technical race circuits. This generation of CBR1000RR also debuted important new technology.
The assisted slipper clutch enabled smooth downshifts, increasing stability and rider enjoyment,
while Honda’s electronically-controlled “Combined ABS” system, launched on the CBR1000RR in
2009, was the first antilock braking system developed specifically for the unique deceleration of
Super Sport motorcycles.
Now, 20 years after the launch of the first CBR900RR Fireblade, Honda has evolved the largecapacity Super Sport concept once again to create a new CBR1000RR that continues the
Fireblade’s proud history.

Evolution of a legend
1992-1995, CBR900RR Fireblade (893cc)
Initially developed as 750cc machine, the first CBR900RR went on to combine 893cc power with
an ultra-light chassis and aggressive geometry to create a revolution, one that would establish the
Fireblade legend almost overnight.
1996-1999 CBR900RR Fireblade (919cc)
A significant evolution of the original machine, the more powerful 919cc (1mm larger bore) engine
worked with a more sophisticated chassis to deliver even greater performance.
2000-2001 CBR900RR Fireblade (929cc)
The first Fireblade to use PGM-FI fuel injection technology, the 929cc Fireblade also boasted a
completely new chassis. This mounted the swingarm to the rear of the engine cases to realise a
lighter and more compact chassis package.

Press information for 2012 Fireblade
2002-2003 CBR900RR Fireblade (954cc)
Lighter and more powerful than the 929cc machine, the 954cc Fireblade also featured a more
rigid chassis and swingarm, higher footpegs in order to reach greater lean angles and more
aerodynamic bodywork. The result was astonishing performance on both road and track.
2004-2005 CBR1000RR Fireblade (998cc)
Inspired by Honda’s 990cc RC212V MotoGP machine, the CBR1000RR debuted a raft of new
technologies to move the Fireblade forward. Key features included a powerful 998cc engine, the
first generation HESD electronic steering damper and a Unit Pro-Link rear suspension
configuration.
2006-2007 CBR1000RR Fireblade (998cc)
Lighter, more powerful and better handling than the previous model thanks to improvements such
as lighter swingarm, revised suspension settings and a new exhaust system, this generation
CBR1000RR perfectly illustrates the Fireblade’s relentless pursuit of perfection.
