When it comes to the glamorous world of sports motorbikes, a lot of people make the mistake of assessing these vehicles based on horsepower alone, but while these specs are undeniably important, they come second to power-to-weight ratio when it comes to overall influence on performance. The new Honda CBR1000RR SP and SP2 motorbikes are designed with this in mind.

These sports motorbikes offer 189 horsepower, a figure whose effect on overall racing performance is accentuated by the fact that the bikes weigh in at only 195 kg. This is made possible thanks to a number of measures including the use of titanium fuel tanks and thinning down of the bike frame. Elsewhere, the CBR1000RR SP and SP2 offer all the latest racing motorbike technologies including selectable engine brake and torque, downshift assist and wheelie control for when you want to show off.

By finding a perfect balance between horsepower and weight, these racing motorbikes promise a comprehensively boosted level of performance.
