Introduction

The world of motorcycling is already well aware of the CBR1000RR Fireblade’s standing in the elite realms of the ultimate sportsbike. Incredibly light, fast and controllable, the iconic Fireblade has built a well-deserved reputation for delivering the full-blooded joy of extreme performance.

2008 marked the iconic CBR1000RR Fireblade’s 16th birthday, and what a celebratory year it has been. With the 9th generation ‘Blade launched in early 2008 as an all-new machine with super-light engine brought immense levels of power accompanied by increased smoothness and refinement of delivery. The result was a machine that would drive with sublime smoothness in every situation, crisp throttle response giving the rider precisely the level of acceleration they require at any moment - whether easing gently out of a slow, slippery mountain hairpin or powering-on hard in a fast race track curve. The result was true to the all-important concept of ‘Total Control’ - giving the rider exactly what they want, and thus building confidence.

Praise has been lavished upon the legendary bike and coveted accolades such as Fast Bikes “Sports Bike of the Year” and “Bike of the Year”, Motor Cycle News “Litre Class Sportsbike of the Year” and RiDE Magazine’s RiDER Power Survey “Britain’s Favourite Motorcycle 2008” have been won in 2008.

For 2009, the Fireblade sees the addition of high performance electronically-controlled “Combined ABS” as an option. Continuing Honda’s commitment to enhancing motorcycle safety at every opportunity, the highly-advanced “Combined ABS” is a remarkable and ground-breaking first for a bike in its class.
For many years Combined ABS has offered a dramatic confidence benefit to emergency braking situations where the machine’s wheels can lock, resulting in a loss of control. But never before has a system been developed that has the necessary refinement, low weight and performance to suit a Super Sports bike like the Fireblade. Until now.

Honda has developed an all-new, lightweight system that befits the Total Control concept of the entire bike. For a minimal weight increase, the confidence of electronically controlled C-ABS can now be enjoyed by the Super Sports rider who demands the highest performance in every facet of a motorcycle.
