The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is a MotoGP race replica rom Honda Motorcycles with many of its features taken from Honda's top-end racing bikes. The result is a high-performance track and racing superbike that also makes for a perfect street bike.

The 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade borrows many technologies found in the Honda CBR600RR, but has added advancements, such as a reworked chassis and exhaust system, reworked front and rear suspension and a lighter swingarm. The CBR1000RR's strong but light die-cast aluminium chassis has an inverted fork, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension and radial-mounted front brakes. The chassis is a reinforced version of the CBF600's frame, but a longer swingarm gives better traction when accelerating. Honda's advanced Unit Pro-Link rear suspension completes the impressive list of features and adds to the bike's impeccable handling.

The Honda CBR1000RR's fuel-injected 998cc engine is modelled on the Honda Fireblade superbike but has been adapted for road use. The engine is powered by Honda's advanced Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) system for superb power and response at all speeds. The electronic steering damper keeps the bike steady on corners to improve handling and performance even more.

Some bike enthusiasts have said that the Honda CBF1000RR Fireblade looks relatively plain against its competitors, and other Honda motorcycles, but this simple styling is more than made up for by the bike's power capacity considering its compact size. Although the bike has enough power to satisfy an experienced thrill-seeker, it is still not too overwhelming for the less-experienced rider.

Offering the best of both worlds, the Honda CBR1000RR is a true champion that pushes the limits of Super Sports riding enjoyment.
