Earlier this month, the F.C.C TSR Honda France team pulled off an amazing win at the 24H Motos at Le Mans. It was a win made all them more special because the team was running a brand-new bike, the CBR 1000 RR-R Fireblade SP. For 816 laps, the team worked hard to maintain an impressive lead, securing a win that moves them into second place in the FIM Endurance World Championship. At this weekend’s final round in Portugal, the Honda France team will be pushing hard to win the title back.
The extremely reliable, MOTUL-lubricated Honda CBR 1000 RR-R is very much the bike to beat. Working alongside Honda and using the All Japan Road Race Championship as a test bed, engineers at Motul developed an experimental oil dedicated to the CBR, a fitting example of our “living laboratory” philosophy.
This has a resulted in a new product from Motul, the factory-line 300V Racing Kit Oil for Honda CBR 1000 RR-R models fitted with the HRC Kit. To find out how important it is for bike and lubricant to work as one, we spoke to Masakazu Fujii, manager of the Le Mans winning F.C.C. TSR Honda France team.
