In 2004, Honda released the first full liter-sized model in the CBR double-R range when they replaced the 954RR with the 1000RR. Designed by a team led by Kunitaki Hara, the 1KRR was an all-new model, not sharing any components with the outgoing model. Though it was powered by an inline-four and not a V5, many parts of the first CBR1KRR were based on Honda’s RC211V MotoGP racer, the bike Valentino Rossi used to secure back-to-back world titles.
The CBR1000RR was constructed around an advanced aluminum twin-spar chassis derived from Honda’s premier class racer. Other pieces born out of HRC’s R&D department included the hybrid aluminum swingarm and all-new Pro-Link rear suspension. Soaking up the bumps up front is a 43mm inverted fork supplemented with the new Honda Electronic Steering Damper that was developed alongside Kayaba.
Inside the MotoGP-derived frame was an all-new liquid-cooled, 998cc, four-stroke, DOHC (16-valve), inline-four with dual-stage fuel injection and two-stage ram air regulated via a 32-bit ECU. The 1000RR’s engine was good for a claimed 172hp and 85ft-lbs of torque, translating to a sub-three-second (2.7) 0-60mph time, and a top speed of over 175mph.
In addition to keeping the dry weight under 400lbs, Hara and his team went to great lengths to optimize mass centralization. Alongside its compact engine, the RR featured a low, centrally-located 4.8-gallon fuel-cell. The RR also got 17” aluminum alloy hollow-spoke wheels and radial four-piston brakes biting dual floating 310mm discs. The CBR1000RR didn’t boast the most aggressive performance, but it was touted as being much easier to control and more comfortable than its liter-sized competitors.
