Video: ABS Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade gets MCN thumbs-up

Honda recently launched their new-for-2009 ABS equipped Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade in Qatar - and our verdict is the system works.

The electronically-controlled ‘brake-by-wire’ system on the new Fireblade is revolutionary, totally unique on a motorcycle and very, very clever. It will save your skin in an emergency and give maximum braking power and complete stability for anyone, whenever you need it.

Most importantly it won’t detract from the pant-wetting experience that riding a 180mph superbike gives you.
