The 1992 debut of the history-making CBR900RR Fireblade completely rewrote the book of Super Sport motorcycle design. It features a remarkably compact and lightweight configuration based on a ‘Less Is More’ concept that achieved a breathtaking blast of litre-class performance from a 900cc inline-4 engine shoehorned into a highly advanced 600cc-class chassis.

Now, Honda has launched CBR1000RR in India to compete with the likes of Yamaha R1 & Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R. Honda India has also launched the CB1000R to compete with Yamaha's MT-01. Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is a MotoGP race replica with many of its features taken from Honda's top-end racing bikes. The result is a high-performance track and racing superbike that also makes for a perfect street bike.

It borrows many technologies found in the Honda CBR600RR, but has added advancements, such as a reworked chassis and exhaust system, reworked front and rear suspension and a lighter swingarm. The CBR1000RR's strong but light die-cast aluminium chassis has an inverted fork, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension and radial-mounted front brakes. The chassis is a reinforced version of the CBF600's frame, but a longer swingarm gives better traction when accelerating.

CBR1000RR is now more compact than ever before. The new CBR1000RR literally brings literbike handling to new levels. It has been launched at Rs. 12.5 lakhs (Ex-showroom New Delhi) which is almost same to Suzuki Hayabusa which is also available for Rs. 12.5 lakhs but both are costly in comparision to Yamaha R1 which is priced at Rs. 10.5 lakhs.
