WHAT WE SAID – SBOTY 2010

Fast Bikes - - CORE TEST -

Say hello, and good­bye, to pos­si­bly the last, great and undi­luted 1,000cc sports­bike. Dur­ing a time when big power num­bers and new-fan­gled elec­tron­ics are all that mat­ters, Honda’s stal­wart and ir­re­press­ible ‘Blade clings on as a stead­fast nat­u­ral­ist. The beauty of the Honda is the hu­mon­gous spec­trum in which it can func­tion, with­out com­pro­mise. This bike will teach you how to ride a mo­tor­cy­cle at its lim­its the tra­di­tional way, then give you that bit of ex­tra rope to ex­per­i­ment with, such is its ver­sa­til­ity when it comes to speed. The Honda trans­mits every­thing to you in real time, mak­ing it just as rel­e­vant as it al­ways has been.

The ’Blade came sec­ond in 2010 to BMW’s barmy S 1000 RR
