*It should be noted that after the publication of this article, American Honda adjusted the price on the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR to an MSRP of $16,499. American Honda has since also announced pricing on the 2017 Honda CBR1000RR ABS, set at $16,799 MSRP.
Prices for the new Honda CBR1000RR seems to be only available in the USA right now, but early indications appear that Big Red is asking for quite the pretty penny for its freshly updated superbike.
As such, current pricing is as follows: Honda CBR1000RR – $16,999; Honda CBR1000RR ABS – TBD; Honda CBR1000RR SP – $19,999; Honda CBR1000RR SP2 – $24,999.
It should be noted that pricing on the SP and SP2 models is still listed as “tentative” right now, and while pricing on the ABS model hasn’t been released yet, we would expect to see an MSRP around $18,000 – keeping in line with what other OEMs are charging for cornering ABS.
This means that the Honda CBR1000RR will be the priciest Japanese superbike in the American market when it becomes available – even rivaling the European brands on cost.
We won’t have to wait much longer though to see if the new Honda CBR1000RR is worth the wait, and now worth the price too, as the first press launch is just a handful of days away, in Portugal.
