    That's just photoshop from a magazine. Don't believe a pixel of that "photo".

    ~Agree.

    Give some guys a computer and Photoshop program and they think they can create the world! Most of us have seen fat better graphic renders than that one, this being my favourite:

    A quick search for the latest info: 215 hp at 14,500 revs, and under 200 kg is the latest goss.

    They must be getting nervous at BMW this time !

    I really hope there is a launch of a new one. Due to numerous delivery date delays I cancelled my order for the S1000RR M Sport so waiting to see what Honda will do.

    Good decision they can't guarantee the delivery of the new BMW ....I had a test ride for a good hour across country roads it is a good bike but bland....and to many plastics in key areas switchgear was all loose ....look like it was going to fall apart....I hope the Honda is good ...

    Hope so Nigel. No, the dealer was fine, they fully understood/understand the situation.
    IMO BMW made a complete mess of the launch, new models have teething issues but it was the delay after delay which was annoying.
    Waiting for you Mr Honda!!

    Well I hope they release some proper info soon, my R1 is 4 years old in 2020, so will be thinking of changing her for a newer model, so blade might just arrive in time for me to get back into Honda?

    I’ve seen a post on another form might have been on here about the carbon wheels cracking on our good old English roads. :)

    Took out the1000rr in June went to put a order down was told February 2020, but more likely June 2020, was told the carbon wheels are the issue, the supplier couldn't make them quick enough and also the quality was not 100%

    Really looking forward to this new Fireblade.

    Forgive a few errors along the way, but lessons should have been learned by now - so come on let's see what you got this time ;)
