Is there a better road sport bike than the Honda CBR 900 RR ? In my option, not. The first Fireblade is simply an amazing motorcycle. You can ride it to work, in traffic, going grocery shopping, blast on your favourite track, go touring, it basically is good for anything. I have bought a few years ago exactly a 1993 model like this. Every time I move it, in and out of the garage, I am amazed by how light it is. Its looks are classic sport bike, and within the Honda family, second only to the HRC bikes. And then comes the refinement, the fast steering (for all models with a front 16 inch) and that indestructible, ductile and torquey motor. This model year Fireblade, still used carburetors and yet you will hardly need to use the choke (just on really cold days). After 20 years, it still springs into life like if it was new. It doesn’t vibrate or make any nasty noises. Brakes are still powerful enough and that luggage space below the folding rear passenger seat is so useful . They simply don’t make bikes like this any more.
Despite the fact that this Blade had already 4 previous owners, it does look good. It has the original turn lights, the original muffler is also provided (see gallery below) and the fairing and fuel tank look good too. Coming across nicely kept original Fireblades is always a treat.
The current bid of 2000 GBP failed to meet the reserve. At 2950 GBP this can be yours….now.
That fake carbon bit on the fork clamp needs to go, and once you have cleaned off the glue, you might unveil a clean piece of metal.Here’s how the seller describes it:
