Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade


The Fireblade: Equipped with Selectable Torque Control (with built-in Wheelie and Rear Lift Control), Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS brakes, an optional Quickshifter with Downshift Assist, Riding Mode Select System, Power Selector and fully adjustable Showa suspension.


  • The Power Selector: You can easily choose the Street, Circuit or Mechanic modes from the full-colour, TFT liquid crystal dash. Once selected, only the relevant information is displayed for the ride you want.
  • Honda Selectable Torque Control: Also known as HSTC, it has nine-levels of traction control and automatically changes the levels of rear wheel driving force. This feature is derived from the RC213V Moto GP machine.
  • Selectable Engine Brake Control: Changes the engine’s braking characteristics while decelerating with the throttle shut off.
  • Throttle by wire: The first Honda production bike to have this feature installed – driven by an Acceleration Position Sensor situated in the handlebar switchgear – you get a natural roll-on, roll-off feel.
  • Honda Electronic Steering Damper: Also referred to as HESD, it will automatically adjust to improve the stability of the bike according to the speed and cornering angle.
  • Quickshifter: Available as an option on the Fireblade, it assists the rider to make smooth gear changes – up or down in conjunction with an auto-blipper ­– without using the clutch.
  • New ABS Brakes: By monitoring the lean angle, the new ABS delivers smooth, effective braking in a straight line and into a corner.
