McGuinness replica Honda CBR1000RR announced

It can win the Isle of Man TT races. Can you?

For Isle of Man TT fanatics, Honda UK have announced John McGuinness-replica CBR1000RR Fireblades, only ten of which will made. Each 2007-model bike (new, never used before) will be painted in HM Plant colours (as used on McGuinness’ bike, which he raced to victory during the 100th IoM TT races last year), will have a single seat only, an Akrapovic exhaust system, a dark screen, and headlight covers. Each bike will be sold with a full Honda warranty.

One of these bikes will be put out on eBay on the 7th of this month, for ten days. The money raised will go to the CJ Riders Fund, which was set up in 2006, when British racer Chris Jones lost his life in a tragic accident at the Cadwell Park circuit. This bike will be signed by John McGuinness and will come with a certificate of authenticity.
