THE BABA FAVOURITE

2002/03 CBR900RR Fireblade

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

Baba’s swan­song Fireblade saw en­gine ca­pac­ity in­creased via a 1mm larger bore, the fuel in­jec­tion up­dated, chas­sis ge­om­e­try tweaked and a new swingarm fit­ted.

Honda re­tired the cap­i­tal B in the name as a mark of re­spect for Baba leav­ing the pro­ject. He was pre­sented with a pis­ton from ev­ery model on a plaque as a re­tire­ment gift.

The 2003 Blade was the last model to come with a hinged pil­lion seat.
