Nine Tenths – 1994 Honda CBR900RR

1994 brought new fox eyes to the CBR900RR, but didn’t increase the weight or sporty intent.  Today’s example is destined for back road fun, leaving the show stand to others.

1994 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

Almost superbike sized, the Fireblade is more of a beefed-up supersport than a lightened superbike.  Its 122 hp, 43mm cartridge forks, and 296mm four-piston brakes are stretched over a 55-inch wheelbase and lightened to just 454 lbs.  Compare that to the liter-size GT’s and see why it did well at the more technical AMA venues.  But it was most at home on the canyon road, with plenty of usable power and easy-to-access handling.  Just one update was advertised for 1994, a redesigned shift drum for smoother action.

Though this CBR would be a project to restore, it appears to be clean and free from any career-ending incidents.  Though it has a carbon muffler, almost conspicuous by their presence are the rear mudguard, droopy turn signals, and clear windscreen.  No info on why an available model was imported, but more knowledgeable readers will please weigh in.  Notes from the eBay auction:

The color scheme is awesome and it goes like stink and handles as well as any modern sportbike. It only weighs 185K dry. It put out 111HP to the shaft and for a 25-ish-year-old bike, that was game-changing. I got this one a few years ago out of Gary’s collection, but just don’t ride it, as I have two others and an RVF. When we do ride it up the canyons, it keeps up with everyone. It’s a head-turner too. Anyone who knows motorcycles knows this bike and how it changed the game in the early 90s. Lots of people stop and take pictures, just warning you. There are VERY few of these around, but if you are looking at this listing, you already know that. This thing is stock and has a Yoshi carbon slip-on. Sounds amazing and runs perfectly.

Everything works and the tires are only a few years old and in great shape. Always garaged. There is a chip in one of the fairings around the clutch plate (see pics) and a few love bumps here/there, but the body is in perfect shape. Clean fluids too. A couple of rips in the seat, but they are super small. Anyway, again, you know what this is if you are looking at this listing, so I don’t need to list any specs…you already know. If you are a beginning rider, DO NOT buy this bike. Just because it is old/vintage, it is a lot to handle for a beginner This bike is in amazing shape…I’m not going to say museum quality, but it is beautiful, and I hate to get rid of it, but I need to clear some motorcycles out of the garage. Odometer is in Kilos btw, which is about 8,500 miles here in the lower 48. Very low for a 27-year-old bike.

Hard to believe this CBR900RR was right across the showroom aisle from the CBR1000F, fully enclosed and around 550 lbs ready to ride.  Different missions, product managers, and designers – and really different roads or tracks in mind.  Probably better to choose another if a scratchless creampuff is your goal, but this one could be the go-to bike, close by the garage door.

No Replacement – 1993 Honda CBR900RR

Update 8.4.2021: Previously listed on eBay in early July for $11k, this RWB 900RR is back on eBay and reserve is met. Current bid is $6,375 and reserve is met. Auction ends Friday afternoon. Links updated. -dc

Almost 30 years old and last seen on RSBFS ten years ago, the FireBlade was a revolution when new.  Updated with a 1000 cc engine and recent service, this CBR900RR is a classic sportbike with attitude.

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

Designer Tadao Baba’s path to superbike performance was more along the weight saving route than adding engine displacement.  The all-new 893cc four was nestled in an alloy chassis no larger than its 750cc stablemates.  122 hp were complemented by a lighter and easier to turn 16-inch front wheel, and lighter conventional forks that were finished to look like hipper upside-down jobs.  Brakes for a -90’s liter were generally over 300mm, but engineers and reviewers found 296mm adequate for the FireBlade’s middling weight.  Even the body moldings are perforated for air flow and less mass.

Seeming to be unchanged since our original – review – in 2011, this FireBlade has acquired only a few thousand more miles, and still looks excellent.  Evidently the engine kit, front suspension update, and brake lines were done circa 2003 but still have low miles.  Comments also mostly come from the earlier eBay auction:

The particular bike up for sale here is an interesting one. As if the 900RR in stock trim wasn’t fast enough, this bike has been fitted with a Wiseco R997 Big Bore forged piston kit which bumps the displacement up to 997cc and compression to 12:1 (up from 11:1). This engine also features re-sleeved cylinders, new crankshaft, and a ported and flow-benched cylinder head. This rebuilt engine has less than 3,000 miles on it. The bike also happens to be one of the first 100 of the 900RR’s produced with VIN ending in 00097 and a manufacture date of 01/92. It also has some updates to the triple clamp to alleviate some of the twitchiness due to its 16” front wheel.

This is one of the most desirable CBR’s in the collector bike market, and yes it’s a 93’, and yes its Red, White and Blue !

This is an early production number, one the first 100
produced, its Number 97.

Excellent condition, Runs Excellent, Very Clean, Very well maintained and serviced, garage kept, never crashed, clean FL title.

30,442 original miles, professionally built 1000cc motor with less than 3000 miles.

Wisceo R997 Big Bore forged piston kit, 1000cc [997cc], re-sleeved cylinders, 12:1 compression [runs on premium pump gas] 74mm bore,
spring steel head gasket. New crankshaft. Cylinder head ported and flow benched by Davis porting. ‘Factory’ shift kit.

Micron ‘Race’ stainless steel exhaust.

Stainless steel braided brake lines front and rear.

Updated triple clamps from 96’ to increase trail and fork stance 10mm, as you may know the pre 96’ bikes are known to be ‘twitchy’ – original clamps are included. New fuel pump, new front rotors, chain and sprockets with less than 5K. Just serviced including: oil and filter, cooling system flushed and refilled, brake fluid flushed and refilled.

From one of the sweet spots of sportbike history, a quieter exhaust could allow this CBR900RR to really surprise its next acquaintance.  Even though the FireBlade eventually grew to a full liter and a little more GT, the original concept of compactness and lighter weight, requiring less power to compete is still a winner.  The up-to-date ask might be challenged with an offer, this superbike-engined Blade in classic sportbike livery looks worth the effort.

Performance Redefined: 1998 Honda CBR900RR

In 1992 Honda lit the world on fire with the introduction of the FireBlade. The original project was headed up by legendary designer/engineer Tadao Baba, with the design goal of reducing or removing every ounce of weight possible while also ramping up horsepower. The 900RR was to the current sport bike world what the original Suzuki GSX-R750 was during the previous decade. It redefined what a sport bike should be, sharpening all of the inputs and edges until what existed was practically a new category: the lightweight superbike. It helps to think of the FireBlade design as a scaled up 750, rather than a liter bike on a diet. Imagine adding 4 pounds and nearly 30 ponies to a CBR600F2 and you have the general idea.

1998 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

From the seller:
This 98 Honda CBR900RR is in excellent condition with no signs of damage. The bike has 29K miles on it and runs great. Very strong and crazy fast! Just installed a brand new racing clutch and battery last week. Also did an oil change. The tires are both brand new. Aftermarket red C&C levers, red CBR engraved foot pegs, red chain. This bike has been very well kept. Please contact me with any questions and/or offers. Thank you!

Honda evolved the FireBlade continually during the next decade, upping the displacement and power while adhering to the hyper-light-superbike idea. Based on the year of manufacture, today’s example appears to be a 4th gen RR, making it a 919cc model (Honda continue to punch out the power plant, first to 929cc then to 954cc before debuting the 1000RR in 2000). There are not too many pictures of this bike, but the few that are posted show a clean, used bike. Legendary Honda build quality applies here, and the nearly 30k of mileage should not be a huge concern if scheduled maintenance was performed. The FireBlade was never on the collector list quite like more exclusive homologation machines, but today these are fantastic motorcycles that retain a bit of mystique. It is likely that values will appreciate in time, especially for the first-gen bikes. Check out all of the details here (such as they are) and Good Luck!!

Have One Curated for You – 1993 Honda CBR900RR

Though designed more for the road than the racetrack, the CBR900RR FireBlade had a long and winning competition history.  This Oregon example was ridden initially, then displayed for many years, and is now ready for its next rider.

1993 Honda CBR900RR for sale on eBay

Design engineer Tadao Baba had a new kind of superbike in mind, and worked up a 750-sized chassis to fit a stroked engine displacing 893cc’s.  With four 38mm Keihin carburetors and double overhead cams, the almost-liter-bike engine delivered 122 hp.  Weight saving was always on page one, with an all alloy chassis and swingarm, and conventional Showa cartridge forks which were said to be lighter.  The 16-inch front wheel was a bit easier on the scale and turn-in effort, and areas of the fairings are perforated to reduce drag and maybe a gram or two.  The final tally was 454 lbs. ready to ride, startlingly close to the CBR600F2, and 65 or so lbs. lighter than the next lightest superbike.

Evidently coming out of a private or maybe dealer’s museum, this CBR is almost spotless and the “never down” claim is believable.  Even in the alternate livery, the colors are bright and the lowers are so shiny the tarmac’s reflection looked like a defect for a moment.  Just a few marks on the generator cover might touched up.  The owner has a good video walkaround – here – and some comments from the eBay auction –

1993 Honda CBR-900-RR – 1st Year – 

-Only 6 lbs. more than the CBR600RR of the same year

-This bike is in 9.9 out of 10 Excellent condition – never down/crashed etc. 

-I am the 2nd owner. Delivered from the factory in the rarest of the two multi-color options

It was perfectly mothballed before going on museum display about 10 years ago. I’m out of floor space in the museum.

-All OEM Bodywork in excellent condition

-Comes with OEM tool kit & owners manual

It’s been pulled off the museum display floor, and over the last month, as time permitted I have had the following service items performed by my mechanic –

-New AGM battery installed

-New oil & filter change

-Front & rear calipers serviced – cleaned & brake fluid flushed from the long time on display

-New non-ethanol fuel installed

The CBR900RR wasn’t a WSBK or AMA SuperBike weapon, but Honda saw that “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” brought customers in, where the FireBlade could win them over.  Winning ways in AMA Formula Extreme and GTO Endurance racing didn’t hurt.  Honda nudged displacement up slowly through the -90’s, and kept weight under control.  But the first year, when the bike was on everyone’s 10 best list, has an undeniable appeal.  This CBR is already attracting a lot of attention, at least bid-wise, and it’ll be interesting to see how the bids compare to the reserve.

Fireblade! 1993 Honda CBR900RR for Sale

Honda’s seminal CBR900RR remains a desirable 90s sportbike, and remains one of the most collectible motorcycles of the period. Subsequent versions of the “Fireblade” were always incredibly polished and competent motorcycles, but somehow failed to capture the original’s lightning in a bottle. So what made the original so special?

Most importantly, the CBR900RR was designed by Tadao Baba to be the ultimate roadgoing sportbike. That meant it didn’t bother trying to fit into any established production racing class, freeing Honda up to make a light, agile motorcycle with a much bigger engine. Without the need to maximize high-rev power, they stroked a 750cc engine to 893cc to keep the powerplant as compact as possible, then slotted it into a package that weighed just a few pounds more than their CBR600. The long-stroke engine could still rev but, more importantly, had an incredible midrange that spoke to the bike’s roadgoing intent.

The entire package prioritized rider feel and engagement over outright performance, but that didn’t mean the bike wasn’t blisteringly fast: 111hp meant it was plenty quick in a straight line. The 900cc engine combined with the light weight to leave it in a class of just one, since the big-bore superbikes from the other Japanese manufacturers were all 1000cc or more, and much heavier. The GSX-R1100 and YZF1000 were fast motorcycles, but compared to the CBR, they were more GT than pure sportbike.

Re-listing because previous buyer’s check was fraudulent. priced to sell

I’m selling my 1993 CBR900RR restomod. I have invested over $10k in this bike.

List of mods:
Rebuilt motor bored out to 998cc. Done by professional race mechanics. Less than 600 miles on the motor. Odo reads 30k.
Front end from a CBR929, completely redone. Valves, spring and internals.
17 inch front wheel from an RC51
Brembo adjustable master cylinder
Galfer Rotors
Nitron 3 way rear shock
Carbs tuned by Erion Racing
Almost every bolt is titanium
Comes with a set of Flatslides
And more

The bike is beautiful and priced to sell. Don’t have time to ride it anymore. If you’ve ever wanted one, this is the perfect rider.

This example replaces the original RWU fork with more modern USD component from a later CBR, along with much more modern brakes. Significantly, it also ditches the ’93 model’s 16″ wheel that made for slightly twitchy handling then, and severely limits tire choice now. Miles are a bit high and the bike isn’t completely original, but this thing should be an awesome rider for anyone looking to recapture the experience of Honda’s famous Fireblade at the rock-bottom Buy It Now Price of just $3,500!

Just Hop on and Rip: 1993 Honda CBR900RR for Sale

Performance is a moving target. In the 1970s, the Norton Commando was a “beast” with 750cc, around 60hp, and a 115mph top speed. These days, many entry-level machines can match those performance targets, and you can pick up bikes with engines as large as 2500cc and power north of 200hp. But at the time, Honda’s CBR900RR “Fireblade” was a revelation. With 111hp on tap, power wasn’t eye-opening on its own, but the new CBR packed big-bike power into a compact, light package that weighed just a couple pounds more than the company’s own CBR600.

Many sportbikes are built with racing in mind, and those compromises sometimes make for sacrifices for street riders. But the CBR900RR was envisioned as a pure sporting streetbike, and some of the odd choices were made to improve subjective feel, instead of lap times. The right-way-up fork? Lighter than an upside-down unit at the time. The odd displacement kept the bike as narrow as possible, and gave the flexible response and torque desirable for a streetbike. The only real misstep was the 16″ front wheel intended to speed up the steering, something it did only too well. It also means limited tire choice then and now.

At 893cc, the Fireblade was obviously too big for superbike racing and it gave up a significant displacement advantage to bikes like the GSX-R1100 and FZR1000. Bore and stroke were uncharacteristically long-stroke for a pure sportbike at 70x58mm, compared to the 78x59mm of a GSX-R1100K. That makes sense since the CBR engine was basically a stroked 750. It still could rev, obviously, but the long-stroke motor was more compact than something with bigger bores would be and also gave the motor a big spread of torque that was perfect on the road, both priorities for the new sportbike.

The result of this unconventional thinking was one of the all time great sportbikes of all time, and was loved by street racers and hooligans then, and remembered fondly by the ones that managed to survive into middle age. Like many Japanese sportbikes, they were thrashed and crashed, but the CBR900RR was always a little bit special, and many solid examples can still be found if you look. This particular example isn’t pristine, but it looks like a solid survivor. However, the seller’s suggestion that you “Hop on and RIP!” doesn’t inspire much confidence that the bike hasn’t been abused just a little over the years…

Specs:
CBR900RR (893cc) SC28
The first generation CBR900RR was introduced in 1992 with an 893 cc (54.5 cu in) inline-four engine. It set a precedent for light weight in the super bike class, being much lighter than other large-displacement bikes of the time. The CBR900RR was based on an advanced research stage model known within Honda as the “CBR750RR”. 

With the objective of equaling the acceleration of competitors’ flagship sport bikes, Honda increased the stroke of its inline 4-cylinder engine, raising the displacement to 893cc. Complementing its power performance were the bike’s dry weight of just 185 kg, wheelbase of 1,405 mm and a body almost identical to that of the advanced research stage model. 

Let’s start with the bad: there’s a small ding in the tank, a few cracks in the fairings, the brake light lens is aftermarket, the blue aftermarket seat doesn’t really match the paint, the mirrors are tomahawk-y, the rear fender and signals have been, ahem, eliminated… The less said about the lazer-cut chain guard the better. And the Two Brothers exhaust has been chopped significantly. That being said, the $5,500 price isn’t horrible, considering the demand for really clean examples. Maybe a rolling restoration project? Assuming it’s been as carefully maintained as the seller claims, you can start trolling eBay for clean OEM fairings, or have a set painted to match. Track down a nice period-correct end-can… In the meantime, you can just hop on and RIP!

Featured Listing: 2000 Honda CBR929RR for Sale

Update 7.28.2019: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Dennis has 3 very low mileage bikes listed right now:

Thank you for supporting the site, Dennis, and good luck to buyers! -dc

This Featured Listing Honda CBR929RR is a nearly modern superbike that’s gotten lost in the shuffle in recent years and was only made between 2000 and 2001. The CBR900RR had been handily eclipsed by the new Yamaha R1, and this was Honda’s attempt to gain back some ground, while remaining true to the bike’s original ethos that “light makes right.” Was it the right decision? Maybe not, but it’s still a helluva sportbike, and this might be the nicest example you’ll ever see.

Instead of going to a full 1000cc, they stuck with a less-than-liter displacement: the 929 indicates the engine size, with Honda claiming it kept the bike’s height and weight to a minimum. It must have worked, because the bike came in at a pretty svelte 434lbs with a tank of gas, as measured by Cycle World during a head-to-head comparison with the R1 and ZX9R. A full titanium exhaust helped save weight, and even the midrange-boosting HTEV power valve was made of the lightweight metal.

Honda attention to detail was everywhere: the airbox included a flapper valve to control internal volume and ensure a steady flow of air to the fuel injection that was new for 2000. Injection may have been new to Honda’s big-bore sportbikes, but you wouldn’t know it: the system was smooth and refined. The engine was much more oversquare than the original at 74 x 54mm versus the later 919cc version of the CBR900RR’s 71 x 58mm, and was good for a claimed 150hp. Cycle World found it had 122hp at the rear wheel, compared to the R1’s 127whp tested on the same day, although the R1 made much more torque: 72 lb-ft to the CBR’s 63.

A new extruded aluminum beam frame followed a philosophy similar to Yamaha, and allowed for a longer swingarm to fit within the short wheelbase required for sharp handling. Honda referred to the new frame as being a “pivotless” design and used the engine as a stressed member, with the longer swingarm mounted directly to the cases. Fully-adjustable Showa suspension graced both ends, and the fork was inverted for the first time. The biggest change in Honda’s thinking may have been a switch to a 17″ front wheel to replace the earlier CBR900’s odd-size.

Ultimately, you had to work the CBR a bit harder than the R1 for the same speed, but in typical Honda form, fit and finish was superior and the bike was physically small, and very agile. Maybe too agile: some riders felt the front end retained a bit of the CBR’s flighty DNA, but you could say it wouldn’t be a CBR without a bit of headshake!

From the Seller: 2000 Honda CBR929RR for Sale

VIN: JH2SC4415YM000517 $9,000

I purchased this motorcycle in San Jose, CA, new in 2000 and rode it 236 miles and then parked it. I’m turning 80 years old in the next month and the time has come to find it a new, younger owner, hopefully someone that is a collector of motorcycles and that would appreciate the fact that it is 99.9% original (new batteries only and still on original tires), has been ridden 236 miles and has been in a climate-controlled environment from the very first day that it was bought and has had the best of care.

Built from 2000-2001, the 929RR was a bit of a stopgap bike, meant to keep Honda in the game and the CBR954RR that followed increased displacement yet again. This particular model has largely gone unnoticed, but the uptick in values for the original CBR900RR suggests that these might soon follow. It didn’t pull the headlines that the R1 did, but it was a very polished machine and every bit as good, just different. The $9,000 asking price isn’t far of the original $9,999 MSRP, but I think we can confidently say you will never see one this nice or original again, outside of a shipping crate. If you’re a Honda fan, this is your chance to complete your CBR collection.

The Original: 1993 Honda CBR900RR for Sale

If you’re not really familiar with the significance of the first-generation Honda CBR900RR, it’s easy to dismiss it as being “just another 90s sportbike.” At the time, it wasn’t even all that high-tech, and could even be considered a bit of a step backwards: it used a controversial 16” front wheel and old-school right-way-up forks, and the motor was long-stroke and rich with torque, instead of a high-rpm screamer.

But there was a method to the madness. Project Leader Tadao Baba, often known by the honorific “Baba-san” wasn’t an engineer. He didn’t attend college or technical school. He was one of Honda’s test riders, with a background in racing and was the perfect choice to head up this new streetbike project that stressed subjective feel over any sort of racing aspirations, although it did occasionally compete, notably in the Formula Extreme series here in the US.

Racing homologation was covered by the V4 RC30 and RC45s, so the new CBR750RR was free to step outside 750cc class limitations and go big. To keep the package compact and light, stroke was increased and the resulting engine displaced 893cc. Of course, that was far less than other “open class” machines of the time and the bike naturally made less power. But the new “Fireblade” had an important trick up its sleeve: radically light weight.

Everything on the bike was designed to keep weight as low as possible. The “low-tech” conventional fork? Lighter than an equivalent upside-down fork, apparently. The result was a bike that weighed 453lbs wet, just a few pounds more than Honda’s own CBR600 and over 100lbs less than the ’93 GSX-R1100… It really was the very first bike to pack big bike power into a 600cc chassis and it set the tone of sportbike development, until the introduction of the Yamaha R1 that took the lessons taught by the CBR900RR but brought actual 1000cc displacement to the party and made the smaller-engined Honda obsolete.

The 16″ front wheel that was apparently chosen to speed up steering and save weight is a bit of an issue here: handling was always considered pretty twitchy on the early bikes and the odd size makes it hard to fit modern rubber to a bike that definitely has the power and handling to exploit it. Other than that, the CBR is a typical Honda product: it’s reliable, incredibly well-built, and now a modern classic.

Unfortunately, it’s pretty hard to find nice once, since as is typical, Japanese reliability means they’ve been thrashed and crashed and generally neglected by now, unless enthusiast-owned and cherished. This one isn’t completely perfect, but is one of the nicest you’re likely to find.

From the original eBay listing: 1993 Honda CBR900RR for Sale

You are looking at a 1993 Honda CBR900RR – SC28 Fireblade. The 1993 CBR900RR is the first year of production of the CBR900.  At the time this was one of the lightest weight bikes in the superbike class. This particular CBR900 has 18400 miles, and the bike is mostly all original with the exception of the Yoshimura exhaust.  The bike is in great running condition. Please feel free to read more about the specifics of this bike and see the pictures for details. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. U.S. and International bidders are welcome to bid on this motorcycle but must arrange shipping themselves…

BODY:::

The body work is in good condition overall, but the right fairing does have damage under the right turn signal as can be seen in one of the photos. The tank has a slight bulge on the right side which can also be seen in one of the up close photos. The frame has some dent damage on the upper right side. The motor is in good looking condition with no corrosion.  The wheels are in good shape with no major scratches. Overall cosmetically this bike is in good condition with some blemishes on the body work and frame.

MECHANICAL:::

The bike runs and rides perfect, and it shifts smoothly through all 6 gears. The carburetor was recently ultrasonically cleaned and adjusted, and a full service tune-up was performed which included new, spark plugs, chain, air filter, brake pads, an oil change, and fluids flushed. All of the lighting, switches and electrical components work as they should.

CONCLUSION:::

This is a great opportunity to buy a very condition ride ready 1993 Honda CBR900RR. This bike is not museum quality but would make a great clean looking rider to enjoy out on the streets. If you need any additional pictures or have any additional questions please feel free to email us. Domestic & International buyers are welcome to bid but must arrange the shipping themselves. However we will be glad to assist with any loading of the motorcycle.  We have helped with the shipping of motorcycles across the country and overseas for other customers in the past. Please feel free to bid as long as you make the shipping arrangements.

The seller mentions the “frame damage” but that doesn’t really look like anything to be concerned about, unless you’re searching for an absolutely perfect example. And purists might be disappointed, but I love the period-correct Yosh exhaust. Basically, the seller sums it up pretty well: the bike isn’t museum-quality, but a very nice bike to ride and enjoy. Bidding is up over $2,000 and there is a ton of time left on the auction, so it looks like there’s plenty of interest in the bike.
