“The Honda CBR1000RR-R Street is Very Fast”, Haslam Says
During the presentation of the Honda SBK team for 2021, Leon Haslam spoke of his experience regarding the Honda CBR1000RR-R street.
“I had the opportunity to test the new CBR in Aragon at the beginning of the season and honestly, the time I did was incredible. The street bike is very fast, I think I did a lap at 1’59.00 (the race laps at the last SBK Aragon GP were about 1’51). His level of performance is very high, he is fantastic ”.
“The balance of the chassis is much better than in the previous one. Now it is much more stable, and with all the electronics it has, and with the traction control, I don’t have to suffer so much to take advantage of the power”.
“I’ve been out there with my friends with the CBR and it’s very easy to drive. It makes me strange to think that it’s basically the same bike that I then push to the limit in races, and then I can go shopping with it. It generates very positive feelings in me”.
On the electronics of his SBK CBR1000RR-R, compared to other machines he has driven, Haslam believes that “it is very different. I think the electronics of the Honda are really good; in fact, the bike is very good and I think we will be able to show all its competitiveness ”.
“It seems to me that my second season with him will allow me to take a great leap and that we will have more time to do it together.”
