Honda set a new benchmark with the 900RR and enjoyed years on top of the superbike food chain, but everything changed in 1998 when Yamaha released the first R1. Seemingly overnight, the tuning fork company had not only caught up with Big Red, but leap-frogged the firm. According to Tadao Baba, the original designer of the RR, the 929 was actually slated for release in 2002 but Honda fast-tracked the model after the R1’s release and managed to debut it a full two years earlier than initially scheduled.

Far from a warmed-over, slightly bored-out version of its predecessor, the 929 was an all-new model. In fact, the only pieces that were interchangeable from the outgoing model were the countershaft sprocket and clutch plates – everything else was completely novel. At the heart of the 929 was an all-new over square engine that made some major advancements over the first Fireblade. Thanks to a cleverly-designed high-flowing cylinder head and a bevy of trick lightweight internals, the 929 produced significantly more power than the 900 at higher RPM. The 929 also featured Honda’s PGM-FI (Programmable digital electronic fuel injection) and 40mm Keihin throttle bodies — with one injector per cylinder — developed with Honda specifically for the 929.

The 929 offered excellent handling, largely thanks to its new “pivot-less” frame design. Gone was the old perimeter structure, and in its place was a twin-spar aluminum unit which utilized the powertrain as a stressed member and mounting point for the swingarm and backbone. While the original 900RR featured a front-end designed to look like an inverted unit, the 929 featured an actual pair of upside-down forks; a 43mm HMAS (Honda Multi-Action System) set that was fully adjustable, just like the piggyback-reservoir-equipped monoshock. Stopping power came from dual 330mm discs pinched by four-pot Nissin calipers, and as Cycle World put it, they “refuse to fade”.

Though it was only produced for two-years prior to being replaced by the CBR954RR, the 929 did receive a few minor updates such as a revised ECU for 2001. That same year, Big Red also introduced several new liveries for the 929, including a limited edition Erion Racing version to celebrate the team’s ample competition success. Founded by AMA National titleholder and former racer, Kevin Erion, Erion Racing is an American race team with a whopping 14 AMA National Championships under its belt. The team utilizes Hondas and managed to win four consecutive titles in the Formula Xtreme series from 1997 through 2000 (and then again in 2006 and 2007).

With Dan Kyle of Kyle Racing fame (also former Two Brothers Racing crew chief and two-time AMA Tuner of the Year recipient) serving as Erion’s lead mechanic, the team become a major force to be reckoned with. Erion loved Honda’s bikes, and Honda loved seeing Erion win race after race on their machines. “When you are fortunate enough to align yourself with a company such as Honda you can count on the quality and performance of the machines,” stated Erion. “It’s our job to get the most out of the support we receive, and that takes a concerted effort by everyone on our team.” The Erion Racing Edition CBR929RR featured a black, white, and red livery borrowed straight from the team’s AMA race bike.

Please Note: factory Erion Racing Editions bikes also had a black frame, so we believe this is a stock CBR929RR with Erion Racing bodywork.

Manufactured in April 2000, this example is VIN: JH2SC442XYM000733. It was originally sold in Canada and then given to us to make up for a bike that had some paperwork issues. We auctioned it off with no reserve last year to the current owner.

The current owner tried to title it in California, however the CA DMV requires U.S. Customs paperwork that the bike did not come with. Our White Glove service can assist with titling outside of California but expect it to take some time with how backed up DMVs are at this moment – please reach out for a quote. Or you could obviously enjoy it on the track as is!

Before the current owner purchased the bike, we replaced the throttle bodies (which were cracked), installed a new Yuasa battery, replaced the air box and velocity stacks, and performed an oil change.
