THE TT WIN­NER

1996/7 CBR900RR (T/V)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

A 1mm larger bore saw the Fireblade’s ca­pac­ity in­creased to 918.5cc and the seat­ing po­si­tion was more re­laxed, with 10mm taller bars and seat height. The chas­sis was also beefed up and the fair­ing re­designed.

The Blade’s drag-re­duc­ing front mud­guard was the same de­sign as the one on Honda’s NSR500 GP bike.

Phillip Mc­callen won the 1996 and 1997 Pro­duc­tion TTS on the Blade.

918.5cc + 183kg + 173.4mph 126bhp @ 10,500rpm 67ftlb @ 8750rpm
