2017 cbr1000rr sp

Doesn't hurt to have a rider like Nicky Hayden doing the demo:
https://www.facebook.com/HondaPowers...6993497343545/

The US and Europe both get the SP2 ($25k USD) as well as the SP ($20k), but not in Canada AFAIK... Not sure if the Euro version SP2 is the same as the US either, Euro supposedly has different pistons, bigger valves and Marchesini wheels.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
'03 SP2, '09 GL1800

I am a total fan! I'll wait until 2018 to let them get all the bugs worked out, but I see one of these in my stable in the future.

From what I have read, it sounds like the US SP2 will be spec'd out similar to the EU model with the bigger engine components and March wheels. That thing will be in S1000RR territory with ease.

That's bad ass and I love it. Mid 20's even for a top of line the RR is bananas, maybe I'm showing my age but damn... I understand it's going ohlins and cool ass gadgetry n all but damn... I bought a brand new busa in '01 I believe may have been '02 it was for 12k. Granted it was '01-'02 but busa's were all the craze back then they got top dollar. Only had it for about a year got tired of going straight really really fast then wrestling a whale through the corners.

Mid 20's... damn, certainly a very nice machine... mid 20's? I paid less than that for my GTI, just saying.
