Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade 2012: School of miles

January 21, 2012 | Filed under: Honda | Posted by: Rana Abaidullah

Tirelessly, Honda is developing its sports bikes with clockwork regularity. For 2012, the Honda CBR1000RR gets new suspension, new wheels, a new electronic engine control and ABS, a revised dashboard and heals his eyes: more an evolution than a revolution. We took the measure of this beautiful super bike circuit: haro on the curbs!

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade 2012: First test

As we approach the great line that connects the straight line, I remain focused to the maximum … it goes into the third well started, and the fastest drivers of the World Superbike atomize the fourth report, at a speed stratospheric! Boy, that was enough to make chilling, but I have already tighten the thighs on the Honda CBR1000RR 2012 vintage to enjoy a joint in a straight line, real obstacle when approached at 200 km / h bluntly asking the ‘electronic steering damper. Fourth, fifth, the faster the counter exceeds 250 km / h and handlebars oscillates under the load of four-cylinder version free ( 178 ea. ), And it comes already on the way down, announcing the first right turn.

Madame knows Fireblade receive

The new Honda CBR1000RR been a few changes for 2012. By static, we find a slightly redesigned fairing, which adopts the concept of double-layer initiated the VFR 1200 F to treat the aerodynamics. The optical change significantly.

The new red or white color brings a sports motorcycle always magnificently to this meeting: nothing is sticking, surface treatments are nickel, it exudes quality. The remaining amendments on the wheels, stiffer, electronic brake distribution ABS, adjustment of injection, a new dashboard with a gear indicator ( finally! ) and new Showa suspension.

To board the Honda CBR1000RR is not a difficulty when one is accustomed to this kind of bike. Moderately high for a sports (820 mm), less compact than the sylphs of the genre ( Aprilia RSV4 for example ), it offers a flawless ergonomics, in the tradition home. Large or small, it always gets back on the saddle, placing his forearms as he is on the edges of the tank … In short, for sporting driving, the Fireblade knows how to entertain.

Incidentally, it is not ultra radical either: pressing the wrists still bearable, one more day to day.

An engine full as an egg

The Honda CBR1000RR has always been one of the most agile superbikes. It is true that his side “ big 600 “ is more in the early rounds. We place the bike very easily and it corrects paths with light support: “ easy to ride “ say British colleagues. The first round shot, we increase the pace crescendo: enough to realize that this engine is still as full as an egg.

It pulls at 3500 tr / min – not easy to read the damn towers array Account! – And, between 4000 and 7000 rev / min, it’s a real spring that powers the Fireblade ahead. Note a slight hollow at the bottom of the couple, probably due to the upgrading. The new setting of the injection, which aims to improve the progressivity of the engine when you open the throttle gently, not flagrant, the Honda CBR1000RR is already a reference in the “ heavy cavalry manageable .”

Soon, we see that the new Bridgestone tires S 20 are doing their best to digest the power and it feels like pumping effects of the suspension and some lateral movement. And attention gentlemen: here no traction control, which avoids any comma. She is so sweet, the CBR is a motorcycle “ unfiltered “ and suddenly, it pays more attention to the couple.

The towers are connected to the first session and it is found that our test bikes are set to “ route “ on joints, it’s comfortable, but the Honda CBR1000RR settles copiously on inequality. This at least shows the potential of new Showa suspension in daily use. For the latest sessions, Honda technicians carry out fine adjustments amounted to R10 Bridgestone, Street Racing Series.

Always safe braking

And that changes still flying! With the heating time reduced, it is faster its brands. The opportunity to find a Honda CBR1000RR still agile in supporting the changes and even more ready to switch the angle.

The CBR is much more agile than most sport 1000 4 – cylinders and suspensions, once slowed in hydraulics, avoid pumping effects and vacillation. No doubt that Aprilia RSV4 is more responsive at the outbreak of the turn. The stability of the angle is perfect, but not as reassuring as some rails in the category.

We like the side then the linear motor, which is exploitable really easily from 4 000 to 12 500 r / min, while beyond 11 500 rev / min, it grows practically. Torquey down, ultra full mid-range and controllable at high rpm, this engine can do everything.
