Honda Fireblade Special TT Edition Available

The British division of Honda has just announced the launch of two special edition CBR1000RR Fireblade machines that celebrate the TT achievements of riders Ian Hutchinson and John McGuinness. Dubbed Hutchy and McGuinness, the two Fireblades feature a special edition paintwork and are available in both standard and ABS-equipped versions.

Taken separately, the Hutchy CBR1000RR is finished in pearlescent white and features a map of the 37.73-mile Isle of Man TT course, outlined around the top of the bike. The mountain course is highlighted by a red line, complete with corner names.

All five of Hutchinson’s victories at this year’s TT races and his overall TT Championship victory are reflected on both side fairings of the Fireblade, while Ian’s unique ‘Hutchy’ graphic is featured on the tank.

On the other hand, the paint on the McGuinness ‘Blade replicates the look of a pint, complete with dew-drops of condensation on the fairings and a creamy white head. The bike is also adorned on the fairings with a gold map of the TT course and the rider’s lap record of 131.578 mph.

“On the paintwork, the skill and attention to detail is just stunning. When you go up close, you can see just how pearlescent the white paint is, it’s an amazing piece of work,”
Hutchinson said in a release.

“With the one that Honda has given me, like Hutchy, I’m not going to use it, it will join my collection,” said McGuinness. “The paintwork is amazing and every owner’s bike will be unique, as each of the bubbles on the bodywork is done by hand and different every time. It’s a work of art.”

The ‘Hutchy’ or ‘McGuinness’ Special Edition ‘Blades, both bearing the riders’ signatures, are priced at £11,725 OTR, or £12,375 OTR with Honda’s C-ABS braking system. Customers can also take advantage of the company’s current 0% APR and 2/9% APR finance offers which end on September 30, 2010.
