Today’s bike of the day is the 2008 to 2009 generation Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade.
This Fireblade comes with a rev-happy engine, which is quick and responsive, with race-like steering, exceptional stability and a supremely balanced chassis.
Power output is effortlessly smooth and the ride quality - due to the fully adjustable suspension - is well suited for road riding. Be warned though, in stock settings the suspension can be a little on the soft side.
Producing 175.3bhp from its 999cc engine, it can reach a staggering top speed of 179mph and is also capable of 36mpg. This model features a slipper clutch.
Used Honda Fireblades are extremely sought after but are also very common, meaning prices are pretty good. You can find a 2008 model from about £4500 upwards.
