Honda Racing return to the British Superbike Championship with a new look Fireblade SP and a new line up for the 2020 season!

Honda Racing is pleased to unveil the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP that Andrew Irwin and brother and newcomer Glenn Irwin will race in the BSB 2020, as well as Tom Neave and Davey Todd in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship.

Watch as the Honda BSB team start working on the bikes, fresh from the assembly line, back in December 2019 to prepare them for the new season. You'll see the inner workings of the engineering team, their collaboration with the racers, the thought process behind bike adjustments, as well as the printing of a fuel tank with the help of partners Evotech. After a delay to the start of the season due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the British Superbike Championship is set to go ahead with Round 1 taking place at Donington Park 7/8/9 August.

The series will take place over six rounds and each weekend will host three British Superbike races, which means this year’s title will be decided across an 18-race season. The debut of the all-new 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP has been eagerly awaited on British soil by both the Honda Racing team and BSB fans alike, and in early March the team enjoyed a promising first test on the new machinery in Spain.
