For Sale: 1993 Honda CBR 900 RR Fireblade
This fantastic survivor - MK I of a game-changine model line - shows only 8,100 miles since new. A timely find given our friends over at Sport Rider magazine just covered the exploits of Honda engineer, team leader and father of the CBR900RR (known as the Fireblade in every other market *except* the US), Tadao Baba. This bike revolutionized the approach to big-bore motorcycles, much like the original Kawasaki Ninja 900 did a decade before.
Originally conceived as a 750 - before being punched up to a 900 - the CBR900RR redefined size and weight. Tipping the scales on par with a contemporary 600 class machine, the Fireblade was a manic exercise of minimalization, centralization and diet. What rolled out of the Honda shops was a razor-sharp monster, and still very relevant today. We don't see many RR bikes in this condition on RSBFS, and you can view Claudio's post on a Swiss-based 'Blade here.
From the seller:
SUPER MINT CBR 900RR OWNED SINCE 1995 8K ORIGINAL MILES NEVER DROPPED . THIS BIKE HAS ALL PERIOD CORRECT ACCESORIES ON IT . THIS IS PROBABLY THE LAST NICEST CBR 900RR LEFT .

This bike is about as clean as you can hope to find a 1st generation model. Thre are some slight mods to it, but nothing to pull away from the value. Mileage is low, and the pictures seem to show that this ride has lived a pretty pampered life. That makes this iconic superbike a rare and worthy find.
