Inspired By A Champion.

No motorcycle connects rider, machine and road like a sportbike. The immediate acceleration, the chassis that feels like an extension of your own skeleton, the power, the handling—and the bigger the sportbike, the more intense the experience.

Honda’s CBR1000RR has long been the ultimate Superbike for experienced aficionados, and the 2015 CBR1000RR is really something special. First off, we’re celebrating Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez’s back-to-back World Championships with some special graphics packages on the standard and SP models. Then there’s the CBR1000RR ABS version, with the most sophisticated brake package in the class. But here’s the biggest news: Track-day enthusiasts need to check out the CBR1000RR SP Repsol Edition version. With fully adjustable Öhlins front and rear suspension, Brembo front brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC premium tires. The SP also includes a special lightweight subframe with solo seat cowl. The SP doesn’t stop there, with hand-selected engine parts for weight and balance, including pistons and connecting rods.

2015 CBR1000RR Options

The 2015 CBR1000RR is available in three trim levels. The Standard model is available in Red, tri-color, and with Repsol graphics. The ABS model is available in Red, and the SP comes wrapped in Repsol graphics inspired by the two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez and track-ready race parts.

Front and Rear Suspension

The CBR1000RR standard features top notch suspension components both front and rear. Up front, the 43mm Big Piston Showa fork is smooth and 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.

Revolutionary Doesn’t Begin to Describe These Brakes.

The available Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) is the first of its kind on a Superbike. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well they work. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.

The Details Make The Difference.
The CBR1000RR is a perfect example of typical Honda industry-leading innovation. Combining tons of power, refined, responsive handling and light weight with drop-dead good looks, it’s equally at home carving your favorite canyon as it is collecting wins on World Superbike podiums. That’s the CBR1000RR—the ultimate liter-class sportbike experience.

12-Spoke Wheels
With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels work with the fork and enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.

Big Piston Fork (BPF) Front Suspension
The CBR1000RR’s front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The 43mm Showa fork is smoother, more responsive and gives you excellent front-end feedback.

Available Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (Electronic C-ABS)
Electronically controlled C-ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less-than-ideal conditions. The system electronically measures rider input on the brake lever and pedal, and applies only the front or rear brake in some cases or combines both brakes in other situations. (Not available on CBR1000RR SP model.)

Windscreen
A bubble-shaped windscreen works in concert with the rider position changes to reduce wind resistance.

LCD Instruments
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.

Layered Fairing
There’s no mistaking the 2015 CBR1000RR, thanks to its layered fairing bodywork. Lean, mean and more aggressive from front to back, it’s a real attention getter, even when it’s standing still.

Centrally Located Fuel Tank
The CBR1000RR’s 4.7-gallon fuel tank is positioned in the center of the chassis and low in the frame. This allows for a more compact design but more importantly, it helps centralize the bike’s mass. Increased mass centralization means the CBR is more responsive to rider input, especially when leaning the bike into a turn or standing it up at the exit.

Dual-Stage Fuel Injection
The CBR1000RR features two sets of injectors per cylinder for both low- and high-rpm performance, instantaneous high-rpm response and great low-rpm metering and clean running. Refined EFI settings make the engine even more manageable, with smoother throttle response specifically at smaller throttle openings.

Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis
A 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.

Assisted Slipper Clutch
Superbikes can deliver a great deal of back-torque 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.

Rider Position
In 2014, the footpegs were moved further back by 10mm, and the handlebar angles revised inward and downward to move the rider triangle slightly downward and forward.

Unit Pro-Link Rear Suspension
The CBR1000RR features front and rear suspension. In the back, the Unit Pro-Link design uses a balance-free rear shock with a double-tube design for a smoother and more accurate response.

Cylinder Head and Exhaust
The 2015 CBR1000RR features changes to the cylinder head, including revised valve seats, machining and intake exhaust port shape. Along with modifications to the intake and exhaust systems, this creates more horsepower and torque.

Gull-Wing Swingarm
The CBR1000RR’s braced aluminum “gull-wing” swingarm is deliberately long. That helps deliver improved traction and gives the rider excellent chassis feedback.
