    Headlining the announcement is the 2022 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP sporting new performance upgrades such as intake ports, airbox, airbox funnels, and exhaust mid-section which helps squeeze more power from the race-bred motorcycle. It will be released in the US in July with a price tag of US$28,900.

    It was followed by the 2022 CBR650R and the 2022 CB650R, returning for 2022. Both the sport and naked bikes will provide US motorcycle enthusiasts with iconic performance and practicality. The former excites riders with its sharp lines, complete bodywork and corner-carving abilities while the latter showcases Honda’s Neo Sports Café design theme through its smooth lines and compact packaging.
