Honda CBR1000RR Overview

The 2017 version of the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade is the latest generation of the hallowed litre-class offering from the Japanese two-wheeler giant. The new CBR1000RR was unveiled in Europe last year and his been brought to India as Completely Built Units (CBUs).

    My first litre class bike is one of the best bikes out there in the market. CBRs always have been known for their stability and comfort however, this is the only CBR I have ridden which has mad power and superb torque which is controllable as well if you know how to ride it. Killer looks and damn sexy bike
