Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.

Honda has showcased its flagship litre-class track tamer, the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP at the 2017 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show. Powering the Fireblade is a 999 cc in-line four liquid-cooled DOHC engine. It punches out 191.7 PS of power at 13,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 11,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch. The instrument cluster is a race-spec TFT LCD unit.
