Of course, if we see updates for the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade for next year, we can expect a similar treatment for the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP 2022 (let’s say that three times quickly).
Like its brother, the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP has its four-row engine massaged for a better mid-range grunt while maintaining its peak power of 214 HP (160 kW).
These modifications include new intake ports, an air box, air box hoppers and a revised central exhaust part. The rear sprocket also receives three teeth (43 teeth in total) for additional acceleration throughout the gearbox.
For 2022, updates to the motorcycle’s traction control system and Ride-by-Wire throttle are also available, which will help solve some of our negative aspects of the motorcycle during testing. Overall, this seems to be a more sophisticated Superbike package from Big Red.
And all this is good, but we think that what will really catch your eye is the new limited edition model, which has a reversing paint that alludes to the 1992 Honda Fireblade.
Like Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP for the 30th anniversary, Honda’s naming scheme is getting downright ridiculous, but the machine is positively beautiful.
The body design was carried out by Hiroaki Tsukui, responsible for the original Fireblade paint in 1992, and the Look is crowned by a sapphire seat.
When you start the Fireblade for the 30th anniversary, the TFT emits a “Ring of Fire” Animation, and each bike is numbered on its upper fork bridge. Marks are also placed on the Smartkey key fob and the Akrapovic exhaust.
Will we see the 30th anniversary of the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP in the United States? We hope so, of course. It should be noted, however, that Honda did not mention the prices for this Retro wheel. Hold onto your wallets.
