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 January 1992, this example is VIN: JH2SC2807PM100137.

The engine number is SC28E-2100150.

True mileage is unknown. The odometer shows 359 miles.

Modifications:
Custom paint job to look like the NR750 endurance racer campaigned at Le Mans.

Two Brothers Racing exhaust.

Superbike grips, aftermarket levers.

Quick-release gas cap.

When this bike came to us, it had covers on the front frame spars. We pulled them off to reveal that the frame had been filled in on the left side.

We also note that the fuel tank was lined in the past and it appears to be lifting at the bottom of the tank.

The tires are from 2011.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
Photos of all known blemishes are included in the album up top.
