Description

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 100lbs lighter than most of the open-class competition of the day.

In ’94, the groundbreaking model had its steel upper cowl stay replaced with an aluminum piece, while a magnesium cylinder head cover took the place of the outgoing model’s aluminum unit. 1994 also saw a slight bump in engine efficiency, amongst other changes.

Manufactured in April 1993, this example is VIN: JH2SC2809RM200260. The seller acquired the bike one year ago.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 20 miles. The odometer shows 27,392 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller states that he replaced the petcock, the air filter, the alternator case cover and gasket, the choke cable and bracket, the rear sprocket, the spark plugs, and the grips. Moreover, he reupholstered the seat, rebuilt the carbs (including an ultrasonic cleaning), performed a fluid flush, and changed the oil. Finally, he installed an OEM windscreen and OEM blinkers and detailed the bike.

Modifications:
D&D Exhaust.
