Radical thinking from Honda focused on the ratio between power and weight and the CBR900RR Fireblade arrived fully formed at the perfect balance point between the two. Physically smaller and much more agile tha the larger capacity competition, its four-cylinder engine also packed real punch. The Fireblade reset expectations of just what an open-class sports bike should be, and what it could do in an era when outright horsepower and straight- line speed had long held centre stage. Over the following 2 years the Fireblade has seen many changes and been through many evolutions – each underpinned by the concept of Total Control. Each generation has built on the legacy of the original Fireblade, providing a superbly balanced package that works incredibly well on track and, even more importantly, is both exhilarating and uniquely rewarding to ride out on the open road. The fact the Fireblade is so goo when actually raced on real roads – at the Isle of Man TT, for instance, where it is the most successful 1000cc machine ever with 23 wins to its name – is testament to its speed, handling and ability to perform in the most testing and extreme of ‘real world’ conditions. 2017, and the 25th anniversary of the Fireblade sees the introduction of a new CBR1000RR Fireblade SP.

MCN overall review verdict: The 2017 Blade SP is smaller, lighter, quicker, but still stable and easy to ride. The rider aids are some of the best on the market, with a huge spectrum of adjustment, which caters for both novices and experts alike. The semi-active Öhlins suspension is class-leading, and Honda have finally made adjusting suspension easy and understandable for everyone. Experienced riders may find the cornering ABS a little too intrusive, and it’s hard to get yourself tucked in behind the small bodywork and screen, but otherwise it’s a hugely impressive new model. The Blade has been sat in the corner of the 1000 class for the last few years, but now it’s ready to take centre stage. Honda’s homologation special Blade SP2 Honda’s homologation special Blade SP2 (only 500 have been made) was drenched in road racing controversy and maligned by many before it even turned a wheel, but peel away those preconceptions and you’ll discover a superb superbike. Admittedly, road-biased rider aids aren’t the best on track, but the SP2 more than makes up for it by being ridiculously light, fast, smooth and has quality running through it like an HRC flavoured stick of rock. Wheels, minor engine mods and exclusivity aside, it’s not a lot different to the Blade SP, but that’s not a bad place to start.
