2007 Repsol-replica Honda Fireblade CBR1000RR


The 2007 Repsol-replica CBR1000RR. A must-have for Hayden fans...

To celebrate Nicky Hayden's 2006 MotoGP world championship, Honda are doing a limited edition Repsol-replica Fireblade CBR1000RR. The bike, which will be available in Europe and the US later this month, is the second Repsol-rep Fireblade – Honda did the first one back in 2005. Repsol first sponsored Honda’s motorcycle racing effort in 1995, with Mick Doohan riding the championship-winning NSR500 at that time.

The 2007 Repsol-rep Fireblade features PGM-DSFI dual sequential fuel injection (first seen on Honda’s RC211V MotoGP bike), a mass-centralised chassis, gravity die-cast aluminium frame, the Unit-Pro-Arm swingarm, radial-mount front brake callipers and an electronic steering damper. We don’t know how the bike stacks up to the 2007 GSX-R1000 or the latest R1 in terms of outright performance, but the Repsol livery alone should be worth an additional 2bhp at least, eh...?
