865 Miles – 2014 Honda CBR1000RR SP

In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

After the legendary 1994 RC45, Honda took a lengthy break from producing a limited-production special for the US market. In fact, it took two decades before Honda would try something similar – the Honda CBR1000RR SP.

Honda built 5,000 units to sell worldwide, only a few hundred of which came to America. For an additional $2,700, riders were rewarded with a tremendous amount of upgrades including 43mm Öhlins NIX30 forks (fully adjustable), Öhlins TTX shock (fully adjustable), Brembo front brakes with four-piston monobloc calipers, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC tires. The 2014 CBR engine was already improved from previous years with a revised cylinder head, but the SP version was blueprinted with “handpicked pistons and connecting rods.” This yielded a bump in power to 178 hp and 84 lb-ft of torque. For better or worse, this is the last fully analog CBR Honda built – no ABS, no traction control, no electronical supervision at all.

This example is offered by the original owner, who purchased it from LA Cyclesports in Inglewood, California. It has just 865 miles and is said to have no scratches in the bodywork.
