THE TT WINNER
1996/7 CBR900RR (T/V)
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.
