Lightening Strikes with New CBR1000RR Colour

12 August 2009 - Honda’s most popular sportsbike of all time – the CBR1000RR Fireblade - now comes in a limited new colour to the range - Pearl White / Light Silver Metallic colour.

The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is one of the most awarded motorcycles in recent times, claiming accolades such as Austest 2009, Rapid Magazines Ultimate Sportsbike shootout and the prestigious International Bike of the year.

When the all-new CBR1000RR debuted, it represented the pinnacle of litre bike performance. Brimming with MotoGP-bred DNA, it was simply the best, most innovative open-class sportbike Honda had built to date.

In 2009, the options improved with the introduction of Combined Anti-Lock Braking, Honda’s latest groundbreaking performance option and the first-ever ABS system on a production sports motorcycle.

The CBR1000RR's unique slipper clutch helps control rear-wheel hop under rapid downshifting, whilst the revolutionary Honda Electronic Steering Damper varies damping rates according to vehicle speed and acceleration, sharpening responsiveness.

Advanced features such as unique, aerodynamic styling, a mass centralised fuel tank, Unit-Pro-Link rear suspension and radial-mount front disc brakes ensure the CBR1000RR remains at the front of the pack every time.

The Pearl White/Silver Fireblade is available in Dealers nationally now.
