The Honda CBR1000RR is one of the sportiest models developed by the Japanese manufacturer. Though, even if the bike is one of the most capable models in its class, Honda still wanted to make a few upgrades.
Honda’s engineers wanted to obtain a perfect mix between power, handling, riding quality, and overall build quality, and we’ll have to admit that the result is quite fascinating.
The 2013 Honda CBR100RR is propelled by a 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder mated on a six speed transmission. For first class performances the Honda CBR100 RR is also packed with a modern slipper clutch which assures full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.
Honda offers the motorcycle in two versions, one with Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Superbike. The 2013 Honda CBR1000RR is offered with a starting price of $13,800.

Honda Electronic Steering Damper
The compact second-generation HESD helps maintain predictable high-speed handling and low-speed maneuverability. Way more sophisticated than a simple fixed-rate damper, it’s one of the keys to the CBR1000RR’s extraordinary handling.
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.
Combined ABS Brakes.
The CBR1000RR’s Combined ABS (C-ABS) system is the first of its kind on a Superbike. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well it works. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.
Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis
Four-piece aluminum frame design balances strength, rigidity, and lightness. Wrapped tightly around the engine, the structure helps centralize the CBR1000RR’s mass for more responsive handling—some of the best anywhere on two wheels.
Dual-Stage Fuel Injection
Two sets of injectors per cylinder for both low- and high-rpm performance. Instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.
There’s no mistaking the 2013 CBR1000RR, thanks to its Layered Fairing bodywork. Lean, mean, more aggressive from front to back, it’s a real attention getter, even when it’s standing still.
Assisted Slipper Clutch
Superbikes can deliver a great deal of backtorque through the driveline, upsetting handling. Not the CBR1000RR. Its Honda-designed Assisted Slipper Clutch is the same type used on our MotoGP bikes. The design does away with the need for heavy clutch springs ensuring full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.
The CBR1000RR’s braced aluminum "gull wing" swingarm is deliberately long. That helps deliver improved traction and gives the rider excellent chassis feedback.
BPF Front Suspension
The CBR1000RR’s front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The 43mm Showa fork is smoother and more responsive, and gives you excellent front-end feedback.
Unit Pro-Link Rear Suspension
The CBR1000RR features premium suspension front and rear. In the back, the Unit Pro Link design uses a Balance Free Rear shock that uses a double-tube design for smoother and more accurate response.
With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels work with the BPF fork to enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.
