What year is your favorite CBR900rr

I'm interested to hear what year your 900rr is and why you like it compared to other years, or even other honda models. Pictures welcome!

If I ever went to the older sportbikes before FI, I'd definitely want one of these. I like the look the mid-nineties fairings had, with the holes around the headlight, and I love the retro twin round headlights look.

Someday, I'd like to get my mitts on an older 900rr. This retro ad is a little cheesy, but the 900 was a hell of a bike in it's day from what I understand.

I found this video on GarrettSR5 blog. Thanks Garrett!

Re: What year is your favorite CBR900rr

well i guess technically the 954 is a 900rr. it combines modern touches with the character you get with the 90's blades. ive ridden lots of older blades all the way up to the 2014 and they are all awesome to ride. but i think the 954 is honda's best bike. not the fastest but i think its the most fun to ride. ive yet to ride the rc51 though. : (

Re: What year is your favorite CBR900rr

Wow, a thread purpose built for me to revel in my love for the 93RRP. I wouldn't be surprised if Mikeo and I are the first 2 to reply to this. I love it Jon, thanks for creating a thread just for us! Ok so the 93's have it, it's a landslide!!

Very light, easy to ride, awesome midrange, aggressive styling, and ground breaking. Nuff' said.

My 2 very different 1993 900RR's:

My Red Rocker 93 Build Link: Café 900RRP

Re: What year is your favorite CBR900rr

Thanks OP!

And yes 93/94 are my absolute favorite.

I fix bikes and write about them here. I wouldn't read it if I were you, you will probably regret it.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.
