2010 Honda Fireblade Revealed

You have already been introduced with several changes that Honda is making in its motorcycle range for 2010 and you saw that the middleweight CBR600RR only got some new graphics to praise with. Well, the situation changes when it comes to Honda’s superbike flagship model, dubbed Fireblade.

The 2010 Honda CBR1000RR model underwent both styling and performance improvements, sporting new colors and graphics. Moreover, the superbike now comes with sharper rear styling, thanks to an updated tail unit shape, which houses a new tail-light with a clear lens. Also updated is the exhaust muffler, which now comes with an aluminium cover.

Moreover, the ACG flywheels have been made bigger and crankshaft rigidity has been enhanced to fit the flywheel size. For 2010 the indicators and licence plate holder have been integrated into a compact and convenient assembly which can now be easily detached from the rear fender unit for... closed track riding.

What is really interesting is that all these changes were made without any changes in the bike’s weight. Just like its little sister, the 2010 Fireblade will also come in an optional C-ABS version.

The 2010 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade will be available in the following color schemes:
  • Graphite Black (White/Black stripes)
  • Digital Silver Metallic/ Pearl Fire Orange
  • Tweaked HRC tricolour
  • Graphite Black (Black special)

“In order to maximise enjoyment of sports riding, innovations have been made to absorb fluctuations in engine torque and improve throttle control,” a company’s statement said. “The 2010 Fireblade styling adds further highlights to the motorcycle’s pared-down and purposeful design. The overall form dispenses with anything that doesn’t support the twin goals of minimal weight and optimal mass centralization.”
