Honda reveal special edition Fireblades

Published: 11 April 2016

At this weekend's debut round of the 2016 MCE British Superbike Championship, Honda unveiled two new special edition Fireblades.

Honda Racing’s BSB riders Dan Linfoot and Jason O’Halloran took a break from the hectic race-day schedule, surprising the Silverstone crowd by riding a parade lap aboard the new TT Special and Black Edition Fireblades.

The TT Fireblade, with its tri-color paintjob comes packed with race-inspired extras including a MotoGP-style Akrapovic exhaust, limited edition black Gilles FX Levers, with Honda Racing etching and Gilles MotoGP lever guard.

It also features Gilles TCA chain adjusters – including paddock stand lifters – and crash pads, as well as Galfer stainless, laser-cut wave discs. The TT Fireblade is priced at £16,999.

Meanwhile the Black Edition adds a host of dark refinement to Honda’s popular CBR1000RR Fireblade machine. It features a special edition smoked screen (27mm higher than standard), Gilles brake leavers with Honda etching and Galfer front wavy discs. Also fitted, as standard, to the Black Edition is a Honda colour-matched seat cowl and carbon fibre hugger. The Black Edition is priced at £12,199.

Nick Campolucci, Head of Motorcycles at Honda, said:

“The Black special is a no-nonsense Fireblade, reflecting the Honda mantra behind the bike - that you don't always need all the bells and whistles to enjoy the ride and to obtain peak performance on-track. 

“The TT Special is an acknowledgement of the incredible success that continues to be achieved with the Fireblade, with John McGuinness smashing the TT lap record last year."
