The new Honda 2017 CBR1000RR

This appears to be spy shot of the new 2017 CBR1000RR.

What this leaked photo and mashup from Asphalt and Rubber shows are some similarities but also some differences.

This shows the potential model. The website seem to miss a few pointers.

What this photo shows is a standard non-SP model with standard ABS model as its got stock forks and the stock Tokico brakes. It has the existing style swingarm and revised wheels. The frame seems similar but missing the radiator hose as its access point to the engine is lower. Another thing not so obvious is the crank case. This side has the clutch casing that is different to the current model. The fairings, tail and headlight are all different. The subframe is clearly resyles with similar mounting points.

I imagine that these are similar to the new TSR Musashi endurance bikes. This interestingly had a new headlight (So did the TSR Team and a new style curved exhaust). They also briefly had a different swingarm that fitted a different shock.

Whist …
