Honda has refined, redesigned and upgraded the original 1993 CBR900RR into one of the best handling Super Sport Bikes on the road today. With over 20 years of tinkering Honda has cultivated the current CBR1000RR to near perfection. Below is a quick run-dow of some of the changes that have led to the creation of the 2014 CBR1000RR. 

 

 

1992-1993 Honda CBR900RR  

Considered to be one of the first Super Sport Bikes ever, the 1992 Honda CBR900RR was one of the best handling and most powerful bikes on the market. Honda used the inline 750cc four cylinder and increased the stroke pushing displacement to 893cc. Created to compete against the Suzuki RVF750 the 92 CBR900RR not only beat it but changed the face of Sport bikes in the process.

1994-1995 Honda CBR900RR

In 1994 Honda released the second generation of the CBR900RR . With the motor already pushing more than enough power Honda Choose to focus on weight an handling to improve the second generations performance. To improve cornering Honda installed fully adjustable front forks. Honda also put the 2nd generation 900 on a diet by replacing the steel Upper Cowl Stay with aluminum and swapping the aluminum head cover for a magnesium. For the second generation Honda also revised the styling and introduced the new headlight design.

1996-1997 Honda CBR900RR  

In 1996 Honda released the 3rd generation of the CBR900RR with a lighter more rigid frame. The styling changed a bit but the biggest change was to the fuel tank and riders seating position which provided better handling. In the power department the bore was increased 1mm making the displacement a true 918cc.

1998-1999 Honda CBR900RR  

1998 Was the first major overhaul for the Super Sport CBR900 with over 80% the previous versions parts redesigned to save weight. The swingarm received and update to a new tapered design that increased rigidity and saved weight. The head-pipe was also redesigned to increase power output.

2000-2001 Honda CBR929RR

The CBR929RR was the first major revision in the series. The body styling and frame received a total redesign. Instead of redesigning the motor Honda built a new motor specifically for the new CBR929RR. The 2000 model was also the the first to offer (PGM-FI) Programmable Fuel Injection. The swingarm was also revised to offer flex during hard cornering to help enhance the handling. The exhaust was also upgraded to titanium to increase strength and reduce weight. With all the motor and body changes the new 929 was putting out 148 HP and weighed 33lbs. less than the first generation 900RR.

 2002-2003 Honda CBR954RR

The 2002 model was increased to 954cc and produced an amazing 150.9 hp thanks to piston. crankshaft and crankcase revisions. Honda continued to push the limits and managed to reduce the weight of the new CBR954RR by an additional 4.4 pounds.

2004

2004-2005 Honda CBR1000RR  

The 2004 CBR1000RR was another total redesign for Honda and it was the first Super Sport Bike to come with a factory installed electronic steering damper. The (HESD) Honda Electronic Steering Damper automatically adjusted tension based on vehicle speed. The unit would increase friction at high-speed to provide stability and reduce head-shake then reduce friction while decelerating to make steering easier at slower speeds Keeping with the times Honda installed an under-seat exhaust system that really cleaned up the styling lines of the bike. The 2004 1000 was also the first to use the (PGM-DSFI) Programmable Dual Sequential Fuel Injection that utilizes 2 injectors per cylinder.  

2006

2006-2007 Honda CBR1000RR

The 2006 had some minor refinements to the cylinder head and intake to increase performance. The front brakes were also upgraded from 310mm to 320mm while the rear received a lightened caliper.

2008

2008 Honda CBR1000RR

The 2008 CBR1000RR revisions were all about handling , weight savings and center of gravity. To increase the handling Honda concentrated their efforts on reducing and centralizing the weight to make the bike feel much lighter. all the cowling were reduced in size and weight, the exhaust system was shortened and light weight wheels were installed. Honda also installed a slipper clutch and a torque limiter from the RC212V.

2009

2009 Honda CBR1000RR

With the ever increasing speeds thanks to reduced weight and increased power Honda upgraded the brakes on the 2009 CBR1000RR. The new braking system featured Electronically Controlled ABS was a first for the Super Sport Bike industry. The ABS's "Brake by Wire" design takes the riders input via the traditional hydraulic brake system and uses the ABS computer the distribute the pressure. The Anti-lock feature helped to prevent the wheel from locking up during hard braking and reduced wheel-hop making the bike much safer. 

2012

2010-2011 Honda CBR1000RR 

In 2010 to be better to smooth the beast at cruising speeds Honda increased the size of the ACG flywheel and stiffened the crank attachment Point. The increase in mass to the rotating crankshaft helped smooth out the variation in engine speed much like the addition of a flywheel weight on a 2-stroke motocrosser. The additional spinning weight also made acceleration more controllable and predictable making the 2010-11 CBR100RR easier to ride. Honda did not want to add additional unsprung weight to the bike so the redesigned a lighter exhaust flanges, radiator fan and swapped the steel head cover bolts for aluminum bolts.

2012

2012-2014 Honda CBR1000RR

Honda installed Showa Big Piston front fork on the 2012 CBR1000RR and replaced dated wheels were with a 12 spoke design. The body work received a few minor changes while and the instrument cluster was also updated with LCD readout.
