Front suspension

For the front suspension, the new CBR1000RR features a telescopic inverted fork with an inner tube diameter of 43 mm, and a big piston front fork (Big Piston Front Fork, made by Showa) is newly adopted. The pressure-receiving area is larger than in the previous specifications, and to generate damping force at low internal pressures, transient characteristics are improved by damping force through such means as smooth operation and reduction of play at the start of the stroke. Combining this with the new rear cushion allows for even greater excellence in handling characteristics and stability during braking.
