The new one Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade It continues to give a lot to talk about since all the details of this bestial motorcycle were revealed, which can stand up to and surpass a Ducati Panigale V4, although not its more capable 'R' version.
In the absence of knowing the prices and the final launch date, which is expected to be during the month of April, there are already several videos in which we can see the Japanese superbike in motion, like this one from the people of Young Machine, in which they put the mechanics of the Honda to the limit.
This is how the Honda CBR1000RR-R-SP sounds accelerating beyond 300 km / h
We have seen it in the skilled hands of Marc Márquez and even in that of others with great luck, such as Glenn Irwin, Honda Racing UK team rider who participates in the British Superbike Championship and who demonstrates the exceptional handling he has on these mounts with vertigo benefits.
In these new images, the lucky journalists of the Japanese medium Young Machine are in charge of getting on the Honda CBR1000RR-R-SP Fireblade, the most equipped option of this bike, and unleash the right fist in the oval circuit of the 'Japan Automobile Research Institute'.
The rider under test has a thruster of 214, 6 hp at 14,500 rpm and a maximum torque set at 113 Nm at 12,500 revolutions per minute, figures that place it as one of the most powerful series-manufactured motorcycles in its category, surpassed only by the Ducati Panigale V4 R and Ducati Superleggera V4, that can reach up to 234 CV of power.
The 'SP' flavor of the Honda CBR1000RR-R has a very special suspension system and a set of brakes with Stylema calipers supplied by Brembo, which improves the braking of the 201 kg in running order that it marks on the scale. This video also gives a good account of the ability of this motorcycle to reduce speed at the end of the straight.
And in case you had not noticed, with the fifth gear engaged, the digital odometer on the screen shows a speed of 299 km / h, to continue accelerating and gaining speed until selecting the sixth and keep pushing, so you could easily talk from a point higher than 320 km / h.
