What is there to say about the Honda CBR1000RR that hasn’t been said before? The FireBlade started life as a 900cc machine that used lightness rather than power to achieve performance.

The formula worked and the Honda CBR900RR FireBlade blew away its competition and changed the way all manufacturers went about building sportsbikes.
The FireBlade has been at or near the top of the tree ever since, facing challengers like the Suzuki GSX-R1000, Kawasaki ZX-10R, Aprilia RSV1000 Mille, Yamaha R1 and BMW S1000RR.
This 04/05 model registered in 2005 was the first version to get a litre engine. With 169bhp on tap and new radial brakes it was more than enough for the road and is a weapon on the track.
Hunts Motorcycles say: "This red, 2005 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is in lovely condition with just 26,618 miles on the clock.
"It comes complete with carbon heel plates, adjustable levers, LED indicators and tail light, hugger, seat cowl, tail tidy and paddock stand bobbins.
"It also has a Yoshimura RS-5 exhaust but is supplied with all its standard parts and features the Honda Ignition Security System (HISS).
"This Fireblade looks and sounds superb and is a pleasure to ride. We'll deliver to your door anywhere on the UK mainland for just £99!"
