Earlier this week, an image showing a screenshot of a Japanese brochure of the Type R showed that the new model will offer 326 horsepower. The web went wild, as at the model's unveiling in late July, Honda had not confirmed this important information about the model.
In fact, as Honda often does, it goes with an incomplete presentation and comes back with more information. It's a good thing in a marketing context, but it's also annoying because it can be confusing.
Fortunately, the company came back quickly this week to provide more information about its model, including the official horsepower for the versions that will be offered in North America; it will be 315 horsepower and 310 ft-lb of torque, gains of 9 horsepower and 15 ft-lb, in that order.
The company also revealed more photos, including the interior.
