Honda has a path of evolution rather revolution in developing their Anniversary Fireblade. Already a product, engineers have their focus to implementing the improvements in suspension technology with some aesthetic to keep the Fireblade fresh.

An updated rear shock improved damping circuits allow for a smoother transition compression and rebound, translating to a ride and improved traction. The makes sense and on the track the felt, as I am sure they be on the road (we only rode on in regards to bump compliance: handy on Australia’s

At the end of the Fireblade, Showa’s latest big-piston forks are currently all the and their benefits are obvious, in the initial part of the suspension where small bump is greatly improved.

While no changes have been to the engine, a new dual-intake system is to have improved the ram-air and — along with ECU mapping — boosted power. I did find the overall curve to be smoother than remembered, with less steps to satisfy noise and regulations than previously.

standard gearing, however ( a all sportsbikes suffer), masks any mid-range increase, if there is Overall, the Fireblade’s power is creamy smooth and throttle is sublime, effectively masking all but the stark ham-fisted mistakes, helps to boost rider

Systems offered by competitors are advanced and genuinely useful; for a like Honda to be behind the is not a good look. By comparison, electronic steering damper is a piece of kit, allowing for steering efforts at low speed firming up as speeds rise and to keep the Fireblade settled.

LCD instrumentation now features a gear indicator, programmable shift-light and lap timing system. It certainly is one of the and more intuitive implementations of LCD and even the LCD bar tachometer is not completely

The gearbox on our test bike, was at times a little recalcitrant, was hopefully due to its virginal 200km on the rather than some problem, as Fireblade boxes been sweet for many now.

The Fireblade exudes an air of quality and that is only achieved its thorough attention to detail; in that is the ace up the Fireblade’s sleeve keeps it sportingly competitive an onslaught of Superbike competition, the of which has never before seen, from not only its three Japanese competitors, but a European triumvirate that is every advance in technology to the Japanese stranglehold on this of the market.
