The 1992 debut of the history-making CBR900RR Fireblade completely rewrote the design book of supersport motorcycle with a remarkably compact and lightweight configuration. With its compact proportions and unprecedented power-to-weight ratio, the Fireblade embodied the origin of the modern supersport motorcycle.
In 2012, the iconic machine celebrated its 20th anniversary with a the new model, which maintains the original’s ethos of ‘total control’, a philosophy that has been continually refined and evolved during the past 20 years.
The current Fireblade features a number of innovative features including new wheels and front and rear suspension enhancements to improve handling, traction and braking performance. The advanced Balance Free Rear Cushion rear suspension is a world-first for a production motorcycle.
The design team has also created a new, even more aggressive styling to better communicate the dynamism and sheer speed of the new CBR1000RR. In addition, the already comprehensive instrument panel has additional functionality making the bike more user-friendly, helping riders get the most from Honda’s most exciting and advanced supersport machine yet.
