2008 CBR1000RR track test in Qatar

Yes indeed, that is how a Fireblade must be ridden!

The pictures you see here are of Special magazine’s Lorenzo Baroni, thrashing a 2008 CBR1000RR at the Qatar circuit. And as the elbow-scraping pics prove, he isn’t giving it any mercy. With its 177bhp inline-four, less weight (a 4kg reduction on the 2007 model…), reduced wheelbase, increased focus on mass centralisation and, umm…., interesting styling, the 2008 Fireblade could well turn out to be Honda’s new bestseller. The bike will be in showrooms by the end of January 2008, so watch out!
