2008 Fireblade

Photos of an all new Honda CBR1000 RR Fireblade for 2008? - Reading some online and offline speculation about an all model for next year one thing is for sure, things are going to change for the Honda CBR 1000 in 2008. After doing some searching around I can't find anything official. Does anyone care to speculate on what changes should or will take place on the 2008 fireblade?

Re: 2008 Fireblade

I agree, definately not going to do that to mine. I do like some of these motogp style exhaust systems on the newer bike but all the aftermarket ones look bad and are extremely loud.

Re: 2008 Fireblade

Yeah that has to be a bad Photoshop job.

Honda needs to get away from underseat exhaust systems.. nothing good about them.. they add an extra 2 feet of exhaust piping and serve only to heat up the riders back side.

You know you gotta expect Honda IS going to follow yamaha's design of the small side exhaust can. It's an effective way to drop weight and clean up the bikes' overall appearance.

Re: 2008 Fireblade

Drops the centre of gravity also... I started this thread after reading a 1000CC shootout that put the Honda in 3rd behind the GSXR and R1 - I thought there might be some ideas on what Honda will do with the new model to make up ground..

That would make it an RVF1000 (or possibly a VFR), not a CBR

Re: 2008 Fireblade

yeah, come to think of it the CB and CBR Line were always inline engines.

I think a V-4 would make for an expensive bike imo.

Re: 2008 Fireblade
