2017 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade to Gain Dramatic Upgrades

While the Fireblade has shown its signs of ageing in recent times, Honda has been working extensively in developing the new generation CBR1000RR that will be introduced globally in 2017. With Fireblade enthusiasts waiting patiently, new details related to the bike have emerged online that shed more light on what can be expected from Honda's civil litre-class motorcycle that is expected to get dramatic upgrades in its latest avatar. The styling will be more evolutionary and possibly similar to the Light Weight Super Sports concept, which forms the basis for the upcoming CBR250RR, whereas the features will make the Fireblade more competition ready, not to forget WSBK worthy as well.

The list of upgrades is impressive on the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR inclusive of more power, an all-new rider aid package, electronic semi-active Öhlins suspension, all of which gets better with a massive weight reduction over the outgoing generation. Sources close to the development of the new Fireblade in the road and racing departments suggest that Honda has worked extensively to make the bike more competitive with rivals and a weight loss of around 8 kg has helped make the bike sharper than ever. That said, the civilised road manners that the CBR1000RR are said to have been retained on the new generation version as well.

Furthermore, power is likely to be upgraded in the vicinity of 180-190bhp, as opposed to the outgoing Honda CBR1000RR's 175bhp output. Additions like a huge ram-air system with a new headstock air intake, a redesigned airbox, a revised fuel-injection system and reduced internal engine friction will aid in boosting power. The airbox modifications are also important given the fact that it will be lucrative when it comes to on track performance.

Another major upgrade on the new generation Honda Fireblade will be the new Bosch electronic control system replacing Honda's C-ABS in a bid to save weight. The Bosch 9.1 AMP ABS unit weighs a mere 3.5 kg, when compared to the C-ABS that weighs a hefty 10 kg, while also offering more precisely tuned safety tech like traction control, anti-wheelie system, cornering ABS and much more. There will also be a Bosch electronics package on the new Fireblade that will be equipped with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). Already seen on competitor litre-class motorcycles, the unit measures six axes of movement and then works out the best way of keeping the bike under control. The IMU will also work in tandem with the Bosch ABS system to exercise better control along with the Öhlins semi-active suspension.

Speaking of which, Ohlins has been working with Honda to develop the suspension system for the 2017 CBR1000RR and the unit is said to be a more advanced version than the one found on the Ducati Panigale 1299 S, the first bike to get the feature. One can expect similar fixed and semi-active setting to be available on the Honda. The electronically control suspension works with the IMU to keep the bike stable under hard braking and acceleration by electronically adjusting the front and rear steering damper. The system also responds to the road and rider inputs.

I figured you would have been on this yesterday.

I applaud Honda for this, it has been way overdue. I like the look too, although subtle changes they are a huge improvement.

The bike pictured is a 2015. There are no pics I've seen for the 2017. The 2016 only comes in flat black.

Nope, the 2012 had new plastics, new suspension and adjustments.

You'll never buy a new bike anyway so it doesn't matter what any manufacturer comes out with

Nope but I can buy an 09 CBR, spray paint it matte black and most folks won't be able to tell the difference between your bike and mine.

Of course immigrants won't know the difference. , they don't even know the different manufacturers. I'll jump on Craig's 09 CBR and smoke you on anything you could throw a leg over

I'm talking about while we are hanging out at the bar talking about our motorcycles in the parking lot. Everyone's going to think you got ripped off if they find out what we both paid.

Since you can't ride worth you should park a bike and drink, but I don't see you ever owning anything worth a

I don't see them going back to that old vented tail.

I'm buying for performance anyway so I could care less about the looks

The CBR hasn't looked worth a since 07... Honda just can't figure out how to build a nice looking, aerodynamic upper cowl... They came out with the sperm whale flat face front end in 08 and its been ugly ever since..

Not to mention 20+HP behind every other liter bike since then also...

Hopefully the 17' will be a total redesign...

If you're buying for performance, you won't be buying a Honda.
