New material is used in the front disc of the Nissin, which improves braking ability both on the road and on the circuit for the standard Fireblade variant. Fireblade SP suspension uses Ohlins Smart Electronic Control (SE-C) with braking entrusted to Brembo. Especially for the SP variant, Honda has pinned a quick shifter feature for a better sporty driving feel.

Some of the details of this special edition include a special badge on the tank that celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Fireblade. This logo is also present on the FOB smart key, which is used to start the engine.

A unique edition logo is also present on the meter cluster when the driver starts the Fireblade SP engine.

Regarding the price, from the Honda UK page, this motorbike is valued at 23,999 pounds or Rp 456 million. However, in Indonesia, the Fireblade SP model is priced at Rp 1.1 billion. If this special edition arrives in Indonesia, the price will inevitably be much higher.
