Design

You don’t dub a motorbike the Fireblade unless you’re sure it can live up to its name – and this Honda motorcycle doesn’t disappoint! Known as the ultimate sportbike, the Honda Fireblade has a lot to prove. The 2015 CBR1000RR comes in three trim levels: the entry-level spec, the ABS and the SP model – meaning there are plenty of options for this racy ride. The downward facing handlebar is designed to make the bike more streamlined – ensuring a quicker, smoother journey. A regular on the racing scene, the Fireblade cleverly combines impressive power with superb handling – making it an all-round winner by anyone’s standards.

Performance and Handling

When it comes to performance, this is where the Fireblade really shines. The CBR1000RR uses Honda’s assisted slipper clutch to ensure maximum power with a light clutch pull at the lever. This, along with the 12-spoke cast-aluminum wheels, allows the bike to maintain superb stability on the road.

Along with the CBR1000RR Fireblade’s 999.8cc inline four-cylinder engine, the front and rear suspension allow for a more accurate response – meaning you don’t have to work as hard to get the best out of your bike. The CBR1000RR ABS version comes with the best brake package of the three specs, but will cost slightly more than the entry-level – while the track-focused SP tops the range. With a maximum output of 133 kW/12,250 rpm, it’s easy to see why this sportbike is such a popular purchase.

Features

A first for the superbike is its optional Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) – a big topic of conversation surrounding the Fireblade. The CBR1000RR’s LCD instrumentation system also impresses, with five-level shift indicator, laptimer and fuel-consumption tracker among its many options. For anyone looking for the ultimate in accessories, the optional Full Sport Pack is the way to go – offering maximum comfort while ensuring top performance levels.
