2014 Honda CBR1000RR SP-Anyone own one?

Just as the title states, anyone on here own one of these yet? Any reviews from owners? What are the differences between this one and a regular CBR1000RR?

I Looked it up:

Slightly different ergos, ohlins suspension, brembo brakes, stainless lines.

Everything else is the same> http://www.cycleworld.com/2014/02/27...-dyno-testing/

Probably no better for the street then the RR, but better on the track by a good margin

I doubt each Houston area Honda dealer will get more than one. Get on the phone and start making calls

Sure is purdy... though I read in one review that the "paint scheme" is actually stickers.

Yap, forged wheels would have been nice, but come on Honduh... rubber hoses?! I can just hear the Brembo monoblocs shouting obscenities in Italiano.

Then the plastics on the SP are probably painted too. My 2012 has a solid tank cover
