In the early 1990s, Honda turned the motorcycling world on its head when it released the CBR900RR Fireblade. The ‘Blade’s designer, Tadao Baba, primarily focused on keeping weight down above all else — a must considering his brief was to deliver a modern superbike with open-class power, weighing no more than your average 600 of the day. The “Fireblade” name is actually the result of a mistranslation of the word “lightning”, and it didn’t fit squarely into any of the existing major classes. Rather, Honda’s goal was to create the best possible road-going superbike, and the eventual result was the 900RR.

At the heart of the original Fireblade — which didn’t come to US shores until ’93 — was a 893cc in-line four which was essentially a stroked three-quarter liter mill with a 70mm bore. Though it wasn’t the most powerful engine of its day, the RR’s 124 hp, 65 ft-lbs of torque, and 160 mph top speed were nothing to scoff at, especially with its svelte weight. A number of measures were taken by Baba and his team to ensure the Fireblade would hit its target weight. This included using a highly-developed lightweight frame, 16” front wheel, conventional forks instead of heavier inverted units (though the 900RR’s front-end was designed to look like an upside down fork) and even the Swiss cheesed-nose.

In the end, Baba-san came through, delivering a 900 that tipped the scales at around 450lbs wet. It was less than 10 lbs heavier than the CBR600, and a whopping 100 lbs lighter than most of the open-class competition of the day!

Manufactured in July of 1992, this example is VIN: JH2SC2817PM100633. The seller purchased the bike in January 2021 from a Craigslist ad – the previous owner was located in Santa Monica so Iconic helped with transportation.

During the seller’s ownership, he covered roughly 1,200 miles. The odometer shows 41,108 miles.

The seller had the oil changed this spring. He also had a friend who works at a dealership rebuild the carbs and put on new tires. He adds that the previous owner had the valves adjusted but does not have documentation.

Modifications:
HRC-branded brake reservoir cover.  

D&D carbon fiber slip-on exhaust.

Zero gravity windscreen.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Metzeler Sportec M3 tires with date codes of 1520 and 4920.

The sale includes two keys, the original tool kit, an extra tail piece and the owner’s manual.
