The eighth generation RR (SC57) was introduced in 2006 and this Repsol Racing livery model, (Code PB-123P), is the most sought-after. Repsol has been closely tied to the Honda racing team and in 2006 a monumental milestone was achieved with Honda becoming the first manufacturer to surpass 200 premier-class wins and well over 600 Grand Prix wins across all classes. This bike helps celebrate that achievement along with Nicky Hayden becoming the 2006 Honda World MotorGP Champion. Clearly cherished with the lightweight gravity die-cast precision moulded frame unmarked and all panels showing virtually no marks. The unique original decals have been preserved and the standard black pillion seat remains in addition to a super rare single seat Honda cowling, both in perfect condition. All controls and displays function and even hidden crevices are clean proving fair weather use only. The bike is 100% standard and really is perfect for those looking for an adrenalin and satisfying ride or an individual wanting to add an iconic bike to a special collection.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Powered by a liquid cooled mass-centralised inline-four 998cc engine with Dual Sequential Fuel Injection, power output is quoted at 170hp. Weighing just 176kg blistering response and performance across the rev range is assured and the factory center-up exhaust with a computer-controlled butterfly valve sounds awesome. Race-inspired cassette-type six-speed gearbox utilises every ounce of power.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Hollow section tripe-spoke cast aluminium wheels are unmarked and finished in factory vibrant orange and shod in Bridgestone Battlax 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR17 rear tyres. These were fitted new in July 2020 and have covered less than 100 miles. Front radial-mount 4-piston front brake callipers grip large diameter 320mm floating discs up front and 220mm hydraulic disc to the rear to help set you up for tight corners or bring you to a quick and comfortable stop with ease. The original sintered metal pads were replaced in 2020 due to age only and retained.
This desirable UK Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade was supplied new by Marshall Honda in Peterborough on the 28th April 2007 to Mr Alistair Maplethorpe. His pride and enjoy for five years until being sold to Dr Julian Kirby in 2012 as an Approved Honda motorcycle by the same Honda main dealer. The motorcycle invoice reveals Dr Kirby opted for the Honda Happiness two year service plan and kept the bike exclusively serviced by Honda. A total of five main dealer visits for service and maintenance and one specialist in July 2020 at 4,308 miles. The total mileage is now 4,391. The final keeper Mr Stuart Hellon and next door neighbour to Dr Kirby purchased the bike in July 2020 and is only selling to buy a classic Lotus Elise. All handbooks, service book, dealer letters and invoices are included. The white Honda Motorcycle Documents wallet with Sales Executive card is present. The spare key is still with a plastic sheath cover and metal tag and a sales brochure is with the history file. Look no further for the ultimate Honda Super Sports in awe-inspiring condition.
