Agree. I said on another Honda forum: 'Not sure what I think at the moment. It does look a bit chunky and bitzy as in no smooth lines.'

Didn't stop me going to my local dealer this morning to make further enquiries. But alas, they claim to not know price or release date.

Re: 2020 Fireblade - EICMA

If was in the market for a new litre sportsbike, my first stop would be the BMW dealer.

I am (most of the time) until progress - like the 2021 (!) Fireblade - means that I seem to have misplaced an entire year?!?


And, on progress, where is the Active Aero that I was promised?!?

Out in the U.S. June 2020, apparently.

This is Honda USA only.

They have taken a leaf (woops, sorry) from the Magazine Publishers' Guild in that a latest issue magazine will always hit the shelves nearly 3 months ahead.

Similarly with Honda. You can trot along to your dealer and order your 2021 model in June 2020 and then impress everyone that you're 6 months ahead of the bunch!

We get ours in April. Pretty sure I'll get one. Waiting for prices to be announced before I go and crunch a couple of dealers.

Not sure about the pretentious headline though. On top of what?

No race results
No sales results
No audited public opinion

Only a handful of enthusiasts like myself masturbating over when we can get one.

Does that count?

On the current bike, the stanchion stops within the wheel diameter.

On the new one it seems to be most of the way up the tyre sidewall .......

On top of the Big Specifications i.e. 215hp. What do you think, Nigel?



It's a real shame that we need numberplates and Forth Bridge bracketry.

The 2020 Ohlins have 125 mm travel on the SP and 120 mm on the base Showas.

The 2017 - 19 SP has Ohlins with 120 mm travel, but strangely 125 mm in the base model's Showas.

Very strange, it looks like another 25mm+ of stanchion. I'll take a measurement at the NEC.
