Featured Listing: 1993 Honda CBR900RR

Update 2.17.2021: This bike was relisted in late July and we’ve just learned it has SOLD to an RSBFS reader. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

From the mid-1980s through the late 1990s, superbike development burst forth hot and heavy from the engineers behind the big three Japanese brands, with each redesigned or all-new bike of the time period resetting the genre’s limits and possibilities. Tadao Baba’s Honda CBR900RR is perhaps the best exemplar of that trend, as it re-wrote record books as it changed what it meant to be a near-liter capacity bike.

Up until the Fireblade’s release in 1992, any capacity over 750cc meant you were getting into porky waistlines and putting a priority on out and out speed over accurate handling. But riding on a 600-sized chassis with 16-inch wheels to quicken turn-in, the 110-horsepower, 450-pound CBR900RR was from another plane. It undercut the Yamaha FZR1000 on the scales by 34 pounds.

This 1993 Honda CBR900RR is in immaculate shape, with a bunch of tasty modifications to increase style, function and comfort, and a raft of NOS parts to aid maintenance. We love the red-black-silver livery, which is a nice break from the ubiquitous HRC red-white-blue paint scheme that was splashed across every magazine test of the time.

From the seller:

Looking for $8,000 USD
Bike is located in Vancouver, Canada and I can assist with shipping

These days, every literbike is pretty close chassis-wise to its 600cc brandmates, but when this bike dropped that was a revelation. Thanks to their reputation for speed and their legendary status, early, well-kept CBR900RRs will only get more valuable.

The 1986 Suzuki GSXR-750. The 1998 Yamaha R-1. The 1989 Kawasaki ZX-7R. The 1993 Honda CBR900RR “Fireblade.” If you seek a collection of the foursome of Japanese sportbikes that pushed our segment of motorcycling forward in a series of quantum leaps, there are no substitutes. The 1993 Honda CBR900RR you see before you would make an awesome start to such a collection.

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

With around 110 horsepower from an 893cc inline four in a package that was 75 pounds lighter than the Yamaha FZR1000, the Fireblade showed the world that liter-class bikes didn’t need to be pigs, and could, in fact, couple precise handling with wrath-of-God acceleration. There simply was not another bike in the early 1990s that was doing what the diminutive Honda was doing, and it was a good few years before the competitors caught up.

This example may not wear the signature red-white-blue bodywork of the early CBRs, but the black and grey is a worthy second to that livery, and the iconic vented twin headlight face is there in all its glory. It was reportedly kept in a garage as part of a collection, and has been made ready to ride ahead of the sale. The tires look new, and the period-looking Yoshimura pipe is a lovely touch. If the photo gallery is to be believed, there are precious few blemishes.

From the eBay listing:

A partial list is below and you can text me at 760-521-5837 with any questions about this bike or other bikes available. Please be patient as I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The mileage shows this one was well ridden before it was put in the collection, but that just means it has been mechanically cared for over its life. With a Honda, there should be nothing to worry about. For the rabid Japanese sportbike fan, this thing is a must-have. And if recent Bring A Trailer craziness is anything to go by, there are hungry buyers out there if you decide it’s not for you.
