On the lookout for a litre-class superbike? If yes, we have some good news. Honda has announced a price revision for the CBR1000RR and the CBR1000RR SP. They are now priced at Rs 14.78 lakh and Rs 18.68 lakh (all prices ex-Mumbai), respectively. This is a price drop of Rs 2.01 lakh on the CBR1000RR and Rs 2.54 lakh on the top-spec SP variant. The price revision is a result of the reduction in import duties on CBUs (completely built units).
Launched in April 2017 to commemorate 25 years of Honda, over 90 per cent of the components of the new CBR are revised or all-new. For starters, the kerb weight has now been reduced by a massive 15kg, bringing it down to 195kg. This has helped in increasing the power-to-weight ratio by 14 per cent. Powering both motorcycles is a 999cc, inline 4-cylinder engine. It now produces 191PS of power (bumped up by 11PS) and 115Nm of torque.
The Fireblade features a 5-axis IMU (inertial measurement unit) which handles the ABS, 9-level traction control, ride-by-wire, rear lift control and wheelie control. It also gets three different TFT display modes (Street, Circuit and Mechanic), three levels of engine braking control and five riding modes (two customisable). Suspension duties on the standard CBR100RR are handled by Showa 43mm Big Piston Fork at the front and a monoshock unit at the back, while braking is offered by Tokico radially mounted brake calipers.
Along with the addition of the aforementioned goodies, the premium 'SP' variant also gets a quickshifter (auto blip on downshifts), Ohlins 43mm USD forks at the front, an Ohlins monoshock unit at the rear and a lithium-ion battery, which is 50 per cent lighter than a conventional battery. The top-spec Fireblade gets Brembo brakes as standard. Both versions come with all-LED lighting and a TFT instrument cluster.
With the revised prices, the Honda CBR1000RR and the CBR1000RR SP have now become some of the most affordable litre-class superbikes in India. Kawasaki has also announced a price cut on their offerings. Click here to read more.
