Honda Fireblade CBR900 and CBR1000 Fireblade by Chris Horton
Book DescriptionWelcome to the ever so slightly psychotic world of the Honda CBR900RR and CBR1000RR! Or the FireBlade as both machines are generically known - and almost obsessively loved - in many parts of the world.Psychotic? Absolutely. Here's a so-called super-sports bike that weighs only about as much as three sacks of cement, packs a minimum of 124bhp (91kW) and in later versions as much as 180bhp (132kW), accelerates from standstill to 130mph (200kph) in around 10 seconds (with the front wheel in the air for most of the time), and will then rocket to around 170mph (275kph) or more.Using colour photography throughout, this new "Ultimate Buyers' Guide" aims not to add to the burden of the would-be CBR buyer, but substantially to lighten it. It doesn't aim to theorise and pontificate about the bike's origins, or even what might have been going through designer Tadao Baba's mind when he came up with the idea.Within these pages, there is nothing but hard facts painstakingly gleaned from acknowledged CBR experts - and from CBR owners, too. Also included is the history and background, but mainly just the kind of information that a would-be buyer can't afford to leave home without. There are the production changes, colour schemes and a chassis- and engine-number cipher along with a comprehensive guide to the bike's few weaknesses (and its many strengths).
