it stands for Honda Enhanced steering damper.....something like that la.... i read that it's a damper lor....

 

hahahaha.. another ridiculous abbreviation concocted by bike manufacter again...

 

e.g. suzuki CLC (Carbon Like Coating) , now we have HESD.. hmmm

so Honda finally eat the humble pie n say admit dat putting a steering damper.. means the bike has handling problem... :p

 

well, that wat honda used to said wen ppl asked honda how come their bike dont comes wif steering dampers..

 

hmmm den again by comin out this abbreviation HESD.. dey could be tryin to cover tis fact dat they fitted steering damper to their bikes.. :lol:

Yep, seems like the R1 will win the horsepower race in 04. :shades:

 

Since horse power figures are not released for the Fireblade, they might tune it further, dry weight figure is also absent. Probably some parts might be replaced still with lighter parts, which might in turn suggest that the production line hasn't started rolling. They're adopting a "wait & see" attitude. :pity:

 

Honda is already saying the new Blade is not about sheer horsepower. I guess we can all see that coming. :sian:

 

"the main focus of the new CBR1000RR Fireblade strays away from the single-minded pursuit of absolute peak power or the lightest weight" :box:

 

I'm guessing that they realized now that no amount of tuning at this point is sufficient to beat the R1. :sweat:

 

There is still a glimmer of hope however. :clap:

 

Probably around 04 April/May timeframe before we see it in S'pore, just like the 600rr this year. :cry:

 

The 04 R1 will be my bike ... if not for the seat and front. :nono:

 

The next question will be, when will the RCV show up? :goodluck:

i have to disagreed over tis point.. HRC can make a bike dat can beat R1 anything in terms of outright BHP.. but tis is nt Honda Corporation and HRC have different policies as their consumers are different.... Honda Corporation in the end still stick to their policies of makin a bike dat is of high quality, realiability and ridability...its a compromise..

 

Outright power = lesser engine realiablity, high BHP = lesser novice riders able to tame tis BHP monster.. tis is a thing dat honda corporation dont wish to do.. :D

Some scanned pages from Monday's MCN.

 

R1's front looks a bit disfigured don't you think?
