The 2013 CBR1000RR is new model for the first production motorcycle to use one. This is not same as the previous version, many changes crammed in this latest generation. The upgrades were highlighted by a Balance-Free Rear Shock, Big Piston Fork and new 12-spoke aluminum wheels.
This superbike are designed with 999.8cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder of engine, Induction Programmed Dual Stage Fuel Injection (PGM-DSFI) with 46mm throttle bodies, Denso 12-hole injector, Valve Train DOHC with four valves per cylinder, Close-ratio six-speed of transmission and Ignition Computer-controlled digital transistorized with 3-D mapping.
For handling the 2013 CBR1000RR used Unit Pro-Link rear suspension features a new, patented Balance-Free Rear Shock from Showa that incorporates a unique double-tube design featuring a damper case plus an internal cylinder for more responsive damping and a smoother, better-controlled damping action. The 43mm fork incorporates Showa's latest Big Piston Fork technology with a larger damping volume to effectively reduce the hydraulic pressure generated as the fork legs compress and extend. The result is more precise action during the initial stroke and smoother damping action, for improved handling, enhanced front-end feedback and a more solid feel during hard braking. And 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels provide more consistent rigidity. Together with the new suspension, these wheels offer improved feedback for the rider.
Other new features include multi-function LCD instruments communicate all important information plus the option of four readout modes for tachometer display, lap timer, five-level shift indicator, gear position indicator and more. Revisions to the optional electronic Combined ABS create a new bias toward sporting/track riding conditions during rear brake application.
