    Hey Folks, I see the new 2024 CBR1000RR-R has been unveiled....
    But will it be a V4 or inline 4?

    If it is a V4 it maybe be called a RR-RR

    Early days yet but hey..... I leave the Navy after 33 years next year, so i may have to trade in my 2020 RR-R for one

    What are your thoughts?

    Also the new 2024 CBR600RR looks nice too with lots of trick bits CBR1000RR-RR.jpg

    Looks to have some mild fairing changes.

    One can only dream of a V4 in this. That would be incredible.

    Guess they wanted improvements for WSBK. Shame it is at the expense of the standard more road friendly variant.

    Indeed, although the peak power and torque are now 500rpm down the rev range, and the seating position is slightly less extreme with bars up a little and pegs down. Every little helps, I suppose. It will be interesting to see how much the Carbon variant costs. The HRC colourway is the only standard option, so if you want black then you'll need to bag one of the 300 Carbon bikes.

    No major changes from what I’ve heard, mostly aimed at the racing teams.things like subframe dimensions and bits like that.

    Apparently loads of input on this updated blade by HRC and the Moto GP technicians
    So will probably have no front end feel,no edge grip,lacking drive out of corners and will probably be thrown up the road at least 20 times a year

    Looks like they've done quite a bit to this new Blade. Engine mods, chassis tweaks and Ohlins 3.0 suspension which looking at the dash setup allows you to enter rider weight.

    Has anyone compared the 2022 to the 2020? They said the 2022 had different inlet ports to improve midrange.
    This one claims to have all new engine internals to further improve the lower end which would be good.
    I test rode one in 2020 and found they had fixed the 2 or 3 things I don't like about my 2017, and ruined almost everything I do like about it. It sounds like they're moving further back towards the 2017 model.

    I have, went from 2020 to a 2022, massive improvement in midrange.

    I haven't ridden a 2022, but going from a 2017 to a 2020 I found the mid-range to be really disappointing. I'm not sure what difference the revised inlet ports and other minor tweaks made to the 2022, but changing the gearing on my 2020 from 16/40 to 15/42 and an ecu remap to suit the new end can transformed it. The gearing was changed on the 2022 to 16/43, which I suspect is why people notice a big difference.

    That's why my gearing on my 2020 is the same as the 22 onwards :)

    Well I got the guy who mapped my 2015 blade to overlay one of the new fireblades, forgot to ask year thpugh and this was the dyno of the bikes after remap.
    Upto 10k rpm my 2015 has more power but after 10k the new one just romps it.
