Honda CBR 1000 RR Fireblade 2004

Here is the one that rocks the line of big CBRs in a new dimension. There was only one step to take to reach the 1000 category. Thus done, the new Fireblade clearly becomes Honda’s spearhead, the machine that will fight on equal terms with the sole aim of regaining its place. leader in Hypersports. And what weapons … The now classic and unavoidable inverted fork with radial mounting brake calipers, a line inspired by MotoGP’s RCV 211 (like the little sister 600), extra long swingarm (for maximum traction) and reinforced foam, pot under the saddle and forced air intake system. The new rims seem even lighter. Given the location of the footrests, we imagine that the position of the pilot is further radicalized and that the passenger is not at all, but then not at all welcome. Honda makes the Fireblade benefit from technological transfer resulting from the RCV, such as the rear suspension fixed to the swingarm, the shape of the frame and its rigidity, and right down to the mill. It gained 44 cm3, in order to offer the machine the standard for 2004: 1kg / ch … It almost succeeds because Honda officially announces 172 ch for 178 kg. 21 hp saved compared to the 954. Unlike all the girlfriends, the CBR has gained weight; and not
that a little: 10 kgs! While the RR 2002 was the lightest of the big hypersports, the new one becomes the heaviest in the category. Harmful? Not sure. The 600 RR does not play ultra light either, but turns out to be one of the most efficient Supersports. Like the 600, the boiler is supplied by a set of double injectors. The radiator sees its cooling capacity increased; the extractable cassette gearbox proves that the machine is clearly competition oriented. Let’s linger for a moment on the cockpit: new dashboard with 2 digital windows (will put the GPS soon or what?), Needle rev counter, and which looks a lot like that of the 600. Bonus gift from the HRC, the strange box between the reservoir and the triple tree is nothing more or less than a new type of steering damper. Hydraulic and electronically controlledic, it takes into account a host of parameters to intervene in an optimum way. To be continued…

The Fireblade was the worthy representative of the high-performance but user-friendly hypersport. A dominant philosophy for the road but which marked time on the circuit. With the 1000 RR, no more compromises. She will fight against the R1 and other GSX-R, with the same spirit "racing". Just look at the technology transfer led by the HRC. Contact. We are more sporty on the Blade, without it being too trying because there is a lot of room on the bike to move. More radical, of course; and yet, the new CBR is easy to access, light, it easily builds confidence, like the 954, and all those before.

The agility is behind compared to the 954 in favor of a more progressive driving and perfect stability. Although the management requires a little more manliness, it remains impeccable. You can angle, hold the rope, and go around with confidence. The engine may have jumped in power, but it does not have the mean and impulsive character of the new block of the Kawasaki ZX-10R. The thrust is there, strong, but without bustle of ramshackle. Without equaling the big heart of the GSX-R 1000, the boiler is rather well filled in half of the tachometer. Crossed the 7000 revs mark, it gives even more muscle but without really exploding. It gives a feeling of driving almost "easy" and the icing on the cake, which pays off against the clock. Honda has not completely forgotten the "total-control" of its sports models, even if the radical side is as present as in the competition. The braking does not suffer from any criticism, and the famous steering damper is completely forgotten at low speed while working convincingly. . It is now clear that a "super fireblade" was born.
