How do you improve upon the machine rated best by one magazine after the other, a revolutionary literbike that’s the lightest, best handling, most compact and highest performing sportbike to be found? Last year we made the CBR1000RR available with our high-tech electronically controlled Combined ABS for the ultimate in sophisticated sportbike braking performance, and the new 2010 model adds engine changes that provide an even smoother power delivery.
New for 2010
– Increased-diameter flywheel for more inertia and improved performance.
– Redesigned license plate stay for easier removal on track days.
– New muffler cover for enhanced appearance.
– Exciting new colors: Pearl Orange/Light Metallic Silver and Red/Black. C-ABS model available in Black only.
