Marc Marquez rides the new 2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP



J D edit: If you're in the USA, that's where the fantasy ends.

Allegedly, here in North America, (Canada & the USA), we're not getting the new base 1000RR-R, but last years model as the base CBR. We could receive a few hundred 1000RR-R SP's, but they will prolly be super-expensive, and limited.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

Argh Matey - that Honda better be good to have 4 R's!

I have ridden Hondas for years and it is my go-to bike. That said, it was left behind over the past years. Will be interesting to see if it can move higher up the heap.

That's a guess and apparently a photoshop made before it was confirmed to have active aero on it as it doesn't shows the glorious Wings it'll come with. Or, maybe this is the new base RR and the RR-R will come with active aero and other bits and bobs...

A cool vid released of Marc riding it at Montmello as well - good ole Honda boy earning his paycheck! LOL...

Can't wait to see how Bautista and Haslam go on it in WSBK next year.

Guesses on SP price? I'm thinking $25-27K (100% guessing), based on little data.

Thoughts?
