1999 Honda CBR900RR-X

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Buying -

Per­haps col­lectible now by virtue of the fact that is was the last of the car­bu­rated ’Blades, Honda’s flag­ship was be­ing roundly beaten by the Yamaha YZF-R1 in the bat­tle for litre bike supremacy. In styling terms the CBR900RR was quite aes­thet­i­cally chal­lenged in th­ese colour­ways too. This one has had bat­tles of its own, be­ing a Cat C write-off.

Gary says: Not so long ago you would have run a mile from a Cat C, never mind pay over a grand for one. How­ever as the prices of early 1990s ’Blades con­tinue on their up­ward tra­jec­tory, the ones from the end of the decade are fol­low­ing in their wake. There’s not a lot to do here and once it’s sorted some­one will have a se­ri­ous sports­bike for sen­si­ble cash.
