the new blade is actually 178kg, 6kilos heavier than the 04 R1- and as much as 10kg heftier that the current blade....but honda reckons than the extra in weight would be a bonus rather than a problem....

the gain attributable to honda's 'mass-centralistion' concept; an idea pioneered in the RC211 V race bike, was to concentrate all the heaviest parts of the bike towards the middle.... :confused:

 

and oso on the official day of the blade's release...there was no mention of how many horses it would pump out....Ans??? because yamaha's 04 R1 was released 1 day before the blade-claimin 172bhp or 180bhp wif ram-air..so i guess honda must haf dropped the idea of releasin the claimed bhp at the last min so as not to make the blade's otherwise impressive 163bhp looks 'what!!! tat's all she hav..!!!???' :sweat: .....u guys be the judge... :smile:

OK, guys, here's something from the the latest MCN, 17th SEP issue... i mangaed to get a copy...

:sweat:

On CBR1000RR(US & Japan)/Fireblade(UK), it said something like this...

:smile:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOW MUCH POWER HAS IT GOT?

 

Last week, MCN revealed the Fireblade's power figure as 163bhp - but come the bike's official launch last Wednesday, there was no mention of how many horses it would pump out.

 

Why? Yamaha's new R1. Officially revealed the day before the Blade, the 04' R1 claims a staggering 172bhp, or 180 bhp with the help of ram-air - enough to make the Blade's otherwise impressive 163bhp seem slightly limp.

 

Insiders say the 163bhp figure was dropped at the last minute, and that Honda is even now working to increase that output.

 

Kunitaka Hara, Senior Chief Engineer for Honda's supersport, naked and sport touring ranges, has effectively taken over from Fireblade creator Tadao Baba as the driving force behind the new bike. He said:"The final power figures hasn't been released because the bike is still under development."

 

With sales not planned to start until March next year, there is still time to make minor revisions to the specifications and increase the bike's output. However, Honda may never claim an official power figure - preferring to let the bike's performance speak for itself. And, as Yamaha power claims can often fall on the optimistic side, when the two bikes get on the dyno don't be surprised to see some very closely matched figures.

 

As for how the Blade's performance compares to the current class leader, Suzuki's GSX-R1000, one HOnda insider, who has ridden the new bike, said:"The power feels very similar to the Suzuki, but with a little more right at the top end."

 

(The above was extracted from MCN, 17th Sep 2003 issue, pls don't flame me about the accuracy or for typos)

:sweat:

From, the recent MCN... the only difference between the UK & US specs is the color scheme difference... other than that, they didn't mention anything else...
