Introducing the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade
So, back at Intermot last month, Honda revealed the Fireblade SP and SP-2 which we have already told you about. However, Honda had decided that EICMA would be the best time to release the standard version of the model.
According to Honda, exactly 90% of the new Fireblade is completely new and is now 196 kg in weight thanks to a 14% weight reduction, meaning the motorcycle’s power will have been enhanced. By 10.7 bhp to be exact. This means peak power is 189 bhp at 13,000 rpm. Wow!
So, what else can we expect from the CBR1000RR? Well, the bike features bosch ABS brakes which offers rear lift control (wheelie) and carries a 9-level selectable torque traction control.
Moreover, the motorcycle delivers a staggering five levels of power distribution, three levels of braking control and offers the rider the option to choose from three different riding modes best suited to their driving conditions; track, winding and street.
Additionally, Honda have made every effort to provide the best quality equipment and features for the rider by adopting a TFT liquid dash which is utilised to communicate and send information to the user.
Similarly, like other new bikes, it features LED lighting all round, including two twin front headlights which routinely correct to ambient light.
