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 160mph top speed were nothing to scoff at, especially with its svelte weight. 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, among other changes.

This particular example (VIN: JH2SC2807RM201908) is in outstanding condition with a bit over 24K miles on the clock.

While the lion’s share of the bike remains stock, it has received several tasteful, period-correct modifications such as carbon fiber fairing inlays/rear hugger/instrument housing, Öhlins steering damper, adjustable levers, billet reservoir cover, clear taillight, aftermarket rear-sets, and a gorgeous Erion Racing exhaust. The sale also includes a handful of the swapped stock pieces including its rare factory tail cowl.

The front fairing on this machine was not up to our usual standards, so we had it repainted.

The first in over a quarter-century of road-going RR models, the Fireblade is regarded today as a tried and true classic, with early examples continuing to appreciate in value. After all, nothing says ‘90s superbike quite like an early gen Fireblade.
