2010 Honda CBR1000RRA
The word is out: the remarkable Honda CBR1000RRA takes open-class performance to a whole new level of excitement. Although it’s physically small for amazingly crisp ¬handling, the CBR1000RRA retains the rider-friendly ergonomics that make it a great street bike, too. Honda’s innovative Electronically Controlled Combined ABS — the first Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) designed specifically for the unique demands of sportbikes — gives the CBR1000RRA superb braking capability. And for 2010 a redesigned flywheel means even smoother power delivery and improved performance from the compact, fuel-injected engine.
Features and Benefits
Liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 999cc four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine features bore and stroke dimensions of 76 mm x 55.1 mm.
Sixteen-valve cylinder head features 30.5 mm intake and 24 mm exhaust valves with a 12.3:1 compression ratio for efficient combustion and high horsepower.
Titanium intake valves with double-spring control allow for high rpm and increased performance.
Intake ports use new shot-peening technology for improved power and torque.
Forged-aluminum thinner high-strength pistons featuring molybdenum coating result in reduced friction.
Lightweight nutless, cold forged connecting rods.
Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) delivers the precise fuel/air mixture to the engine for efficient combustion and crisp performance at high engine rpm.
46 mm throttle bodies feature Denso injectors with lightweight valving for faster reaction time and 12 holes per injector to optimize mixture atomization, combustion efficiency and power.
Auto-enriching system is integrated into programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) module, eliminating the need for a manual choke.
Small and light ECU features two 3-D fuel injection maps per cylinder/two 3D ignition maps per cylinder pair creating an ideal fuel mixture for superb rideability.
MotoGP-derived twin ram-air system allows high volume (9.7-litre airbox) of cool air for incredible engine performance.
High-capacity radiator with twin cooling fans.
Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioner.
Starter gears located on the right side for increased lean angle.
Radical clutch design not only provides slip in throttle-off conditions, but also provides positive lock under power.
Extremely compact exhaust system incorporates a catalytic converter and control valve in mid-muffler that reduces rear bodywork size and significantly improves mass centralization, reducing roll and yaw inertia.
Durable #530 O-ring–sealed drive chain.
Lightweight Hollow Fine Die-Cast twin-spar aluminum frame utilizes MotoGP technology.
MotoGP-derived Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) .
43 mm inverted aluminum-slider cartridge front fork features spring preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability.
Exclusive Unit Pro-Link Rear Suspension is patterned after Honda’s world-championship-winning
MotoGP RC211V. The upper shock mount is contained within the swingarm rather than being mounted to the frame. With no top frame mount for the shock, this unique system reduces negative suspension energy from being transmitted into the frame, allowing optimum frame rigidity and improved rideability out of corners. It also permits repositioning of the fuel tank lower and closer to the machine’s centre of mass.
The CBR1000RRA comes with the world’s first Electronically Controlled Combined ABS for sportbikes. This innovative system combines the benefits of anti-lock brakes and linked front and rear brakes to improve both braking control and safety — all without interfering with cornering ability or other aspects of sport performance. The system measures rider input on both the front brake lever and rear brake pedal (plus data from other sensors), then using sophisticated electronics and two separate power units, generates up to the maximum braking force on both wheels while also preventing wheel lockup. An innovative stroke simulator helps to maintain the same sort of feel at the brake lever and pedal as you’re used to. Combine this with the small size and weight of the components, and you have one amazing system. Full braking performance immediately available, giving you that extra peace of mind.
Front brake system features radial-mounted four-piston calipers and 320 mm floating discs, and rear brake system uses a 220 mm disc with a single-piston caliper for exceptional stopping power.
Front discs with 72 holes of four different diameters for light weight and improved feel.
Super-light aluminum-alloy hollow-spoke wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 6.0 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
Centrally mounted 17.7-litre fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing for a more compact design.
High-capacity 413-watt alternator.
High-tech instrument display features tachometer, LCD readouts for speedometer, coolant temperature, odometer, two tripmeters and a clock, mpg and average fuel consumption. A low-fuel
LED light and shift-indicator light is located above the LCD.
Line-beam headlight features two-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design.
Redesigned licence stay for easy removal on track days.
Redesigned exhaust cover.
LED taillights for improved appearance.
Plastic tank shell cover protects tank and airbox.
Convenient ignition switch/fork lock for added security.
Folding aerodynamic mirrors.
Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.
Lightweight maintenance-free battery.
1 year, unlimited mileage, freely transferable warranty.
