Is this the new Fireblade?
Leaked pictures are circulating the global press
at the moment in response to the announcements from Yamaha and
Kawasaki of their all new 1000cc superbikes. The sneak peek photos
of the 2004 Honda CBR1000RR are certainly convincing enough but
we will have to wait for the official announcement from Honda.
Although no official confirmation has been made
yet we are fairly confident that this is the actual bike and not
a clever photo-shop creation.
bike is styled on the successful CBR600RR. Beam headlights, underseat
exhaust and Pro-Link rear suspension have made their way onto
the new bike. In addition there are radial brakes and upside-down
forks keeping the technology on par with the competition. The
bodywork is a bit of a disappointment and will surely take a bit
of flak from most potential buyers.
We will keep you posted once we get details from Honda
