Honda launches 2012 CBR1000RR Fireblade mini-site

Published: 14 October 2011

Updated: 20 November 2014

Honda has opened a mini-website dedicated to the new 2012 Fireblade. It promises to tell the full story of the bike which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Fireblade series next year. Honda is keen to stress the easy-to-ride 'Total Control' philosophy which has shaped the Fireblade dynasty.

You only need traction control if there's something wrong with your bike's rider controllability, seems the nudge. Sketches reveal how good the 175.7bhp 2012 'Blade would look in plain titanium grey (shame we don't seem to be getting it yet), and there's an interesting graph among many which shows how much less stiff the new wheels are when not leaned over, and how much more so when they are. There are sections devoted to Concept, Styling, Engine, Chassis and Tech Spec.
