2001 Honda CBR 929RR

The RR

The Honda CBR 929RR is already of a legend in motorcycling terms. introduced back in February it set a new benchmark in the sports bike It took the evolution of the sports started by Kawasaki on the GPZ900R and by Suzuki with the GSX-R and Yamaha with the FZR1000.

But bike went to a whole new Both those bikes had to extent redefined sports with more power and weight. But the 929 leaped ahead of it wasn’t just evolution, it was

I remember riding the first RR, the was a little rocket. It was small, and very fast. It was also exciting to ride with its unruly manners. It didn’t badly, and it wasn’t an effort to in the way that the old style universal motorcycles (UJM) had been, but it took some commitment to the fierce power and the rather feel of the front end.

To be on the original Fireblade, much of its problems stemmed from the that the front tire so little time in full with the pavement that it was bound to shake its head a And many owners found a little expert twiddling suspension setup, or failing a steering damper, cured the completely. As Honda evolved the things calmed down maybe too much for some who actually liked the wild manners.

Released for the 2000 season, the incarnation of this revered the 929 Fireblade, is supposed to take the old gun on a few steps. Enough hoped to regain the ground that lost to Yamaha and the superb R1. But did the of suspension tweaks, frame and fuel injection, which made the 929 an all-new version of the do enough?

There’s only one way to out, ride it.

The 929RR in isolation would be a very sport bike. It has loads of more than ever and top notch handling. I noticed a tendency to shake its head exiting fast corners (on the where the surface tends to be and at times this got bad enough to me to back off the throttle just a to avoid disaster.

You wouldn’t this behavior unless you demanding the 929’s all, but why buy a sport bike if you don’t to explore the limits of its performance? have liked to have the bike on different tires, as not a huge fan of the stock Bridgstones, have plenty of grip, as do tires nowadays, but they’re in my opinion, as stable at the ragged as the Michelins or Dunlops of the same

The 929RR taken in isolation be a very satisfying sports It has loads of power, more ever before, and top notch

The brakes on the 929RR are brilliant, and the forks cope with well, never bottoming out when used really Whatever speed you’re down from the front end planted and continues to soak up irregularities. This is the reason why don’t have ‘funny’ or front ends nowadays the have made telescopics so well there’s no need to them anymore.

The Honda’s forks are great for the street, my recent ride on the new Suzuki has shown me that there’s still available. No doubt noted this and we’ll see trick coated tubes on the next-generation CBR that might make an appearance at Milan’s big in Fall. At the rear there’s an good brake and a pretty shock too – these modern really do have plenty in the handling and stopping department for the rider.

The Honda does lose out on to its competition, even the GSX-R750 I rode the week after I had the 929 more powerful, with a little less torque, surprised me for a bike that away nearly 200cc’s. The also seemed to have the on top speed, although I didn’t a chance to speed trap the and Suzuki to compare them

Hop off the Blade and onto the R1 and you’ll see the Yam has the edge on all-round power, it has throttle response lower needing fewer revs to get it The Honda needs more use of the to keep it boiling, the Suzuki 750 a bit more again, but the new game sets a whole new standard in the So Honda will have to do homework if they want to up with Suzuki.

One area Honda have always ahead is in quality of finish. The a very well put together and there’s no history of problems the 929, although the early the CBR900 RR-N did get a bit of a reputation in the UK for finishing. The RR-P version, in November 92 (in the UK) seemed to have that problem. The latest RR is thought out, it’s for a sport bike, almost on being a useful touring

The bars are low enough for sports at your local racetrack and yet enough to make road a reasonable proposition even for distances. I rode the 929RR for 250 which included 15 miles in London traffic, without its ergonomics too much. That’s no feat for a bike that can with the best.

This is a difficult subject. are just so good nowadays finding fault always on nit-picking.

And often you can only one bike by comparing it with a bike that’s just little bit better. I have to off about the reserve capacity On one ride out on the 929 I noticed the fuel light while pretty in the countryside, and some way from the filling station.

But I’m to being able to get up to 40 miles out of the tank on my own Yamaha Thunderace, so I more than the 10 miles it the 929 to dump me, absolutely out of gas, on a road late one evening. And can tell me why four bikers past without stopping, two car drivers pulled up, one with a can of gas to rescue me? What happened to the old when stopping at the side of the on a motorcycle was as good a way as any to make new buddies?

The CBR isn’t without warts, of which is the nervous feel of the end, which isn’t right. Exiting fast on the throttle the bars would much like on the early I had to constantly roll off the throttle to the thing heading for the bushes.

As as you metered the throttle, and kept weight well over the end, it wasn’t a problem, but it catch the unwary, or inexperienced, out. It needs a steering at the very least, and reworked wouldn’t go amiss.

So why should you buy a when the magazines are all saying the Suzuki is top of the sport bike and the R1 is probably in second spot?

first reason would be you your bikes with on the tank, because you like the that gives you. make them well at and they always look you if you should have a problem. Or you want to be different? Who’d thought you’d be able to say about a 929? From to the late Nineties when the R1 to dominate the sports bike the CBR was a bike you’d be sure to see you took a ride out to any biker out, and in numbers.

Nowadays the 929 version is actually scarce compared to the hordes of R1s and the increasing bands of GSX-R1Ks the roads.

Honda knows have been aced by the R1 and the And that’s a situation you can be sure won’t allow to continue for too There’s sure to be a host of and engineers working away on Cad-Cam machines as I write developing the next version of the CBR to come and grind the upstarts the racetrack curbing.

Until the 929 remains the Japanese open bike to have if you really want a Yamaha or Suzuki.
