Back in 1993, the seller of this bike was 44 years old. He had the good sense to buy one of the most revolutionary sportbikes of the 1990s, and he’s kept it until now. He’s kept it quite stock and in excellent condition, and now it’s ready for a new owner.
The first generation of the Honda CBR900RR, affectionately known as the Fireblade, was a revolution in the large displacement sport bike market. Despite a 50% larger engine, this bike weighed just 4 pounds more than the CBR600F2. Just as important, this bike was a whopping 76 pounds lighter than its lightest competition! When originally introduced, some thought the steering was dangerously fast. As time has moved on, it’s clear that the Honda CBR900RR was just a trendsetter – modern supersports are all just as twitchy, if not more. Dynamically, this is an excellent bike with incredible reliability. As Motorcycle News puts it, the Fireblade was “the motorcycle that changed how sports motorcycles were built.”
This example has 26,364 miles on the odometer and the seller says it’s stock except for a taller windshield. It has a clear title and it’s tagged until January 2018. Find this RR for sale in Houston, Texas for $3,950 here on Craigslist.
