We're putting together a supplement for a forthcoming edition of MCN, to celebrate the Honda FireBlade, one of the most influential bikes of the last 20 years and we want your input.

The next generation of Honda superbike will be the first not designed under the guidance of the Blade’s's original creator, Tadao Baba, and so far the indications are it won't even be called the Blade.

Since it appeared in 1992, there have been several incarnations of the bike, from the original drilled-fairing model, all the way to the most recent sharp-handling examples. All have their devotees and we want to know which has the most.

To vote which Blade is your favourite, simply send an email to with 'FireBlade vote' in the subject line, and say which version you like the best, and why.

Also, take part in our supplement by telling us your favourite Blade memories - it might be the first time you rode one, or a particular moment spent aboard one, anytime.

Send your votes, and any great FireBlade tales, to with FireBlade vote’ in the subject line. To look at every year of the Blade, follow the link on the right to visit MCN’s bike reviews.
