PERFORMANCE FIRST, LAST, ALWAYS.
2020 Honda CBR600RR ABS:
High-level sport-bike performance needn’t come in large packages, as proven by the popular CBR600RR, which is equally at home in twisty back roads and dedicated race circuits. The model that has earned eight World Supersport titles (nine if you count its CBR600F predecessor) touts a strong engine and front suspension featuring Honda’s 41mm Big Piston Fork for exceptional handling and supple action.
Honda’s 2020 CBR600RR is a bike that puts the “Super” in Supersport. Six-hundreds have always been magic machines, combining sharp handling with light weight and plenty of performance. And there’s nothing like a high-revving inline four when it comes to immediate, exhilarating power delivery. Wrap that in Honda’s twin-spar aluminum chassis, add premium suspension, and you have the recipe for a machine that’s as at home on the track as it is on the street. Available with optional anti-lock brakes too.

More powerful and technologically advanced model adds to Honda’s supersport legacy
Honda Motor Co. founder Soichiro Honda dreamed of competing in races around the world—and winning—with a vehicle of his own making. Driven by the same competitive spirit, and having since amassed the most premier-class Grand Prix victories of any manufacturer, Honda announced today the 2021 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. An evolution of Honda’s legendary 1,000cc sportbike, the all-new model draws heavily on MotoGP technology and will carry Honda’s sport motorcycle lineup into the future while also bolstering its racing efforts in series including the FIM Superbike World Championship.
Designed from the ground up with involvement from Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) and an extreme focus on outright track performance, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP pairs a more compact, yet more powerful inline four-cylinder engine with an all-new frame with optimized rigidity for improved grip and feel. An advanced suite of electronic rider aids works to enable fast lap times, while aerodynamic technologies from the RC213V MotoGP race bike are used to both increase downforce and improve braking stability. For the first time, the “Fireblade” name is being used in the U.S. market.
“From our earliest days, Honda has been committed to developing class-leading motorcycles capable of winning races,” said Chris Cox, American Honda’s Manager of Experiential Marketing/Public Relations. “Developed around technologies and information gleaned from Honda’s Grand Prix racing efforts, the 2021 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP highlights the brand’s competitive spirit, and we’re excited for riders to experience the latest in our storied line of sport motorcycles.”
CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADE SP
Focusing on outright track performance, engineers have developed the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP with engine and chassis technology from MotoGP, the all-new model drawing heavily on the RCV combustion efficiency and low-friction solutions. The engine is more compact than the inline four-cylinder powerplant it replaces and benefits from the use of high-end technologies like titanium connecting rods, forged aluminum pistons and finger-follower rocker arms.
The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP uses an all-new aluminum diamond frame with increased vertical and torsional rigidity, but decreased horizontal rigidity, for maximum levels of grip and feel. A longer swingarm—stamped from aluminum of 18 individual thicknesses—is developed with lessons learned through Honda’s Grand Prix efforts, further highlighting the connection between the all-new model and Honda’s championship-winning race bikes.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) has been optimized and an adjustable Start Mode joins Power, Engine Brake and Wheelie Control; a quick shifter is standard. The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is outfitted with a six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), three-level Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) and second-generation Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension and user interface. New Brembo Stylema brake calipers bite 330mm rotors through two-level ABS. The bodywork and riding position have an uncompromising focus on aerodynamic performance, and the fairing features MotoGP-derived winglets to generate downforce. A full-color TFT screen and Honda Smart Key are the finishing touches.

2020 Honda CBR600RR ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN
- Centrally located ram-air intake system delivers midrange power and good throttle response in the high-rpm range.
CHASSIS / SUSPENSION
- The 41mm Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) features a large damper piston that generates damping forces at low internal pressures to allow for smooth, responsive fork action. Adjustable for spring preload plus compression and rebound damping.
- Unit Pro-Link® rear suspension.
- Using knowledge gained from the Honda RC212V MotoGP race program, the aerodynamic design allows minimal drag. The development and testing used with this CBR600RR bodywork, in turn, led to aerodynamic advancements that were incorporated into the RC213V.
- This aerodynamic efficiency lends itself to agile handling and good wind deflection for maximum rider comfort.
