    2017 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade
    36 monthly repayments of £119
    OTR price:
    £15,225
    Deposit: £3443.66 + £750 Honda UK deposit contribution
    Optional final payment: £8466.90

    It is almost as though Honda don't want cash buyers anymore. Total of £7727 over 3 years and then you just give it back or pay them another £8466?!

    Honda still haven't product a brochure for the 2017 yet?!

    Totally agree mate.

    I don't want to PCP a bike as I want it as my own.

    Not just Honda but as brought up before it's the whole car/bike sector that wants you to go down the PCP route.

    that's why the price hike things... Happened about ten years ago with cars.... Make them unobtainable for the masses.... But offer low rate alternative finance so you can still have ownership....conspiracy ha.

    blame the iphone generation of wanting everything now but not having the capital or worked for it in the first place.....

    oh wait.... How much a month again?? Well cheap :)

    I think the gopping black plastic blanking plates bolted on are like something from an early 1980's Datsun - not a £15k so called 'new' superbike

    Sorry Honda, but this is all I keep thinking when I read the term 'new' Fireblade and see all the parts from my 2008 / 2014 bike in use

    The covers look like they should be covering the inside of a rear light on a Metro or Punto !!!

    Are you leaving the blanking covers removed from your bike ?

    Thanks for those pictures - looks great seeing a brand new bike - shame weather still really poor , few more weeks you can report back on road tests

    I hope the hose is the only piece made in China. Some Carbon Fibre goodness would be nice for the price (note R1M)

    Those covers may look like an after thought, but they look better on than off.

    Will be interesting to see what the magazines and papers say about it! And which version they test and compare it against
