News about the Honda CBR1000 RR Fireblade


Check out this link for the Honda CBR1000 Video and we are running a poll here on the 2008 Fireblade Photos It would appear the new model is growing on people. Many people think it looks better than the 2008 GSXR – The most popular still seems to be the Yamaha R1  as far as looks are concerned.

For CBR1000RR modifications one of the best things you can do is see where the smart money is being spent. Most owners are going to change the exhaust as a first step, maybe look at suspension adjustments or replacement items but how do you know which parts to choose? When you get into aftermarket products their are numerous choices so the bes thing you can do is spend some time on and ask the guys with the hands on experience what works best and exactly what is going to give you the performance gains that your after. For the CBR1000 and the CBR600 it’s about the best place online.

Repsol Fireblade

The Repsol CBR1000 RR is in showroom condition just fancy paintwork. It does not differ from the regualr fireblade in any other way than the paintwork. It is a real head turner! The example in the picture is far from a standard machine – one of the best looking 1000 cc machines around.
