With Stylema® Monobloc F
Objective Based Tuning Interface
The Öhlins NPX fork uses a pressurised damping system to minimise cavitation, resulting in more stable damping control and improved bump absorption at high speeds. Feel for front tyre grip is also enhanced. The rear shock is also by Öhlins; the upper mount attaches at the back of the engine to enhance high-speed handling.
Incredible braking power is provided by the latest Brembo Stylema monobloc four-piston radial-mount front brake calipers - with Brembo brake lever and master cylinder to match. The calipers maintain rigidity but are 7% lighter, with less internal fluid volume for more immediate reaction.
The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is equipped with Launch Control for race starts. It limits engine rpm at 6,000, 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000rpm set-points, even with a wide-open throttle, letting you focus on clutch release (and lights) alone. A quickshifter is also fitted as standard, with performance optimised for racetrack performance and reliability.
For flexible ability (and along with Rear Lift Control) the ABS gains two switchable modes; SPORTS mode focuses on road-riding performance, with high brake force and less pitching, while TRACK mode offers power and feel braking from much higher circuit speeds. Both are controlled with input from the six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).
