Our Best Gets Even Better
Known for being the best overall liter bike package, the CBR1000RR cements its stellar reputation with several improvements for 2014, including a new ride position, a new windscreen and engine and exhaust modifications for more power and torque.
For the track day enthusiast, there’s even more great news: a special CBR1000RR SP version with fully adjustable Öhlins front and rear suspension, Brembo front brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC premium tires. A special lightweight subframe and a new-design rear single-seat cowl also shave weight. Plus, it features hand-selected engine parts for weight and balance, including pistons and connecting rods to improve track performance.
The future’s looking bright indeed—especially if you’re on a 2014 CBR1000RR.
Even Better For 2014: We’ve increased power with a revised cylinder head, exhaust and air intake. We’ve also changed the riding position and added a new windscreen to improve rider-vehicle connection, especially in track use. We even went with a new-wave key to reduce weight.
Front and Rear Suspension: The CBR1000RR features suspension in both front and rear. Up front, the 43mm Big Piston Showa fork is smoother and more responsive; in the back, the Unit Pro-Link design uses a balance-free rear shock with a double-tube design for a smoother response and better road-holding feel (traction performance).
LCD Instrumentation: The CBR1000RR’s full-screen LCD instrumentation includes a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.
