2012 Honda CBR1000RR Superbikes

The new Honda CBR1000RR 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. There's no mistaking the new 2012 CBR1000RR, thanks to its all new Layered Fairing bodywork. Lean, mean, more aggressive from front to back, it's a real attention getter, even when it's standing still.

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. For 2012, newly refined EFI settings make the engine even more manageable, with smoother throttle response specifically at smaller throttle openings. 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.

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 even more important 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. The CBR1000RR's new, full-screen LCD instrumentation includes lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.

The 2012 Honda CBR1000RR all-new front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The new 43mm  Showa fork is smoother and more responsive, and gives you excellent front-end feedback. Electronically controlled Combined ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less than ideal conditions. The CBR1000RR 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. With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels work with the new fork and enhances suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.

The CBR1000RR features new suspension front and rear. In the back, the Unit Pro-Link design uses a new Balance Free Rear shock that uses a double-tube design for smoother and more accurate response. The CBR1000RR's braced aluminum "gull wing" swingarm is deliberately long. That helps deliver improved traction and gives the rider excellent chassis feedback.
