CBR1000RA Fireblade ABS
Next Stage Total Control
Over the last 25 years the Fireblade has seen many changes and been through many evolutions – each underpinned by the concept of Total Control. For 2017 there is a brand new Fireblade and Honda’s engineers have remained true to the first principles of the original project – power to weight – with the focus on handling, corneringand acceleration.
Power to weight ratio is improved by 14% - reaching the best level ever for the Fireblade. Thanks to the use of magnesium, careful assessment and lightening of individual parts, the engine carries 2kg less and overall the Fireblade is a full 15kg lighter.
The Fireblade’s 999.8cc inline 4-cylinder engine is light and powerful and the new electronic control system provides constant, selectable and fine-tunable rider support. It’s equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS, Riding Mode Select System and Power Selector, full Showa suspension and RC213V-S MotoGP derived technology.
The Fireblade’s bodywork outlines an aggressive, functional minimalism, and the machine is slimmer and much more compact. The result is a bike that continues to define the Super Sport sector and offers riders an experience that’s uniquely exciting, whether on road or track.
