If so that'd be great. I though we'd have to wait until EICMA in November.

As usually, Honda is on par with the CIA and keeping things top secret. No spy shots from ANYWHERE.

Only this video which suggests the CBR1000RR SP will be a 2020 model - so if there is also a special new SP3 style 200hp+ bike its a very mixed message from Honda marketing and I think will torpedo sales all around.

Is it possible its a very well kept secret because there is no new bike?? hehe

That video is some cobbled together YouTube bs. Not from Honda. The CBR1000RR footage it shows is from late 2016 when they introduced the current bike.

Still holding out hope they will have a real new bike though.

A new bike that is actually as advertised would be great, not so great for the value of my SP2 which I am very happy with and will probably never sell, or be able to sell.

Pretty much - they knew we would never get to tap the potential of the SP2 when they suckered, I mean sold them to us which is a little frustrating.

Found something interesting. Photographer on twitter by the name @n_mode_log has captured an interesting bike from Suzuka circuit coming out of the HRC truck about 5 hours ago.

My gut feeling tells me this is the new Fire Blade. What are your thoughts?

Could be - sort of 600, MotoGP, RC51, Fireblade mashup. The video is a nice touch.

And if this bike is what was on the drawing board in 2018 already and that is why they didn't throw proper support behind the SP2, then it outlines even more the really fucked up treatment Honda dealt to Ten Kate that had for 20 years carried their torch in WSBK by taking away official team status.

You see the half arsed effort they put in this year just running the same SP2 based bike. FFS, Ten Kate could have kept that place holder for them as well allowing them to enter 2020 with a better chance at winning.

Then again if they don't charge to the front they will really have a lot of explaining to do.

The bike appears to be nice but I am not sure the company deserves the loyalty we show it.

I think so as well.

The guys at MCN also think it is going to be the new Fireblade.

Did anybody get the Honda survey that had the $1 Bill in it about 6-7 months ago? I wrote in red marker on front of the survey that Honda better take care of those who purchased an SP2 if they produce a new model that does what the SP2 wasn’t able to do for the layman.
