The Honda CBR900RR Fireblade which was introduced in 1992 was
a highly capable sports bike which raised the bar for all other
manufacturers. This highly capable machine straddled the divide
between 600cc bikes and litre machines.
The CBR900RR Fireblade was a project led by the Honda engineer
Tadao Bada. He felt that by using a chassis borrowed from one
of the company's 600cc machines, and equipping it with a 900
cc inline 4 cylinder engine he could make something quite special.
He was right.
The Honda CBR900RR Fireblade had a great power-to-weight ratio
which allowed for fast acceleration and a 164 mph top speed,
and an extremely capable and well designed chassis which provided
agile and dynamic handling.
