2013 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

Posted on by  

The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is the epitome of super sport motorcycles offering a perfect mix of agility, power and handling.

Since it was launched in 1992, the Fireblade has won a lot of hearts with its sporty character and the unique riding experience. Needless to say that since then, the bike was continuously upgraded and today has reached its peak of evolution.

This mechanical beast is propelled by a Liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 16-valve, DOHC, INLINE-4 with PGM-DSFI electronic fuel injection. The engine puts out a maximum power of 131kW at 12,000 rpm and 112Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm.

To help you use the entire power generated by the engine, Honda equipped its Fireblade with a set of sporty suspensions. Thereby the front wheel is kept in check by a telescopic inverted fork with an inner tube diameter of 43 mm, and a Big Piston Front Fork with preload, compression and rebound adjustment. On the other hand, out back there is a Pro-Link configuration with gas-charged HMAS damper featuring 10-step preload and stepless compression and rebound damping adjustment.

Overview

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

Celebrated worldwide for its scorching speed and effortless agility, the CBR1000RR Fireblade is an established icon of performance motorcycling. Total Control has been at the heart of its development since the Fireblade was first launched in 1992, and it has sped from success to success. Honda has continuously improved the ride experience that gives the rider unique confidence on both road and track. In 2009, Honda epitomised the Total Control philosophy by introducing electronically-controlled Combined ABS, a revolutionary innovation for a bike in this class. The first Combined ABS to be designed specifically for a super sports motorcycle, it retains the necessary feel at the controls as well as incorporating the light weight and keenly developed performance demanded by its highly competitive environment.
