Building the Honda Racing 2020 Fireblade SP – Part 3


The Honda Racing team is pleased to announce that Episode 3 of the Building the Blade series is now available on YouTube .

The in-depth series follows the Honda Racing team as they develop the all-new Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP ready for the 2020 Bennetts British Superbike and Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championships.

This instalment of Building the Blade looks into the electronics and what is required to set-up a brand-new machine using the championship-standard MoTeC ECU, along with fuel delivery and torque mapping of the engine. With limited development time, the team focussed their efforts on maximising stock components for the Fireblade, including the frame and swingarm as they arrived at the opening round of the championship at Donington Park.
