The 2017 Honda CBR1000RR SP2 will be making its debut in Darwin for Round 4 of the Australian Superbike Championships this weekend (July 8 / 9).

The superbike will be making its first showing on the weekend of after successful testing at Winton Raceway.

Current Australian Superbike Champion Troy Herfoss is positive about the new bike and its capabilities.

“The bike feels so well balanced and seems to offer more grip than I remember from the old bike. When I open the throttle I can open it so hard and so fast, yet the bike just lets me do it, lap after lap.”

But he says there are still many improvements to be made throughout the season.

“There are so many electronic functions we still need to work through and refine as we move along, but for now I couldn’t be happier to take this championship to the next level.”
