The Fireblade gets more power and tech. It’s priced from Rs 17.61 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The 2017 Fireblade is an all-new generation of the CBR1000RR series, and marks 25 years of this particular line of motorcycle’s existence. At its heart is a 999cc in-line-four engine that now puts out 191.6hp at 13,000rpm (10hp more than before) and 114Nm at 11,000rpm.

Around 90 percent of the main components have been revised to result in a weight reduction of 16kg, bringing bike’s weight down to 195kg. This reduction in weight, with the increase in power, has led to a power-to-weight ratio increase of 14 percent.

The bike comes loaded with electronics, including a new gyroscopic ABS system, ride-by-wire, 9-level torque control, selectable engine braking, electronic steering damper and power selector. The SP version additionally gets semi-active Ohlins Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension at the front and rear: 43mm NIX30 inverted forks up front and a TTX36 monoshock round the back, a quickshifter and downshift assist. Both bikes come equipped with full-colour TFT screens too.

Honda Motorcycles has started accepting bookings for its 2017 CBR1000RR Fireblade. The bike will be sold in India as a CBU, and is priced at ₹17.61 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). A higher performance variant, the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP, will also be available at a price of ₹21.71 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Both bikes will be sold through Honda’s Wing World outlets in Mumbai and Delhi.
