Honda has provided a first glimpse of its revised liter-class sport bike, now to be called the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP and promising more power, additional electronics and aerodynamic winglets, in addition to more Rs in the name than any of the rivals.

The CBR1000RR-R SP includes MotoGP inspired winglets which contribute to an increase in downforce and improve braking stability. Additionally, there are 3 vertically stacked internal fairing wings to channel air and increase stability. Further aerodynamic advancements include lowering the tank cover 45mm and redesigned the lower and rear fairings.

Expected in June of 2020 and with color options being HRC racing livery (red/white/blue) or Black.
