The Honda CBR900RR, also known as the FireBlade in some countries, is a 900 cc (55 cu in) sport bike that was released by Honda in 1992 as part of the CBR series. It was the first in a long line of large-displacement Honda vehicles to have the RR suffix. Tadao Baba directed the development of the first generation CBR900RR.
CBR900RR (919cc) SC33
The third generation CBR900RR debuted in 1996, bringing significant modifications to the CBR900RR. Honda altered the suspension and chassis to improve stiffness. Larger, thinner-walled extrusions were employed in the swing-arm and frame to increase torsional stiffness, as well as updated shock and fork internals and a 5 mm (0.2 in) elevated swing-arm pivot. To enhance the riding posture, the handlebars were elevated by 10 mm (0.4 in) and swept back by five degrees. The engine displacement increased by 1 mm (0.04 in) with a 1 mm (0.04 in) bore increase to 918 cc (56.0 cu in). Other changes included a smaller alternator, a throttle position sensor, more clutch plates, and a bigger exhaust.
Graphics and color selections were the only modifications for the 1997 model.
Honda continues to make small changes to the chassis of the fourth generation CBR900RR in 1998. It now has a stronger frame that is more like the original, and the offset on the triple clamp has been decreased by 5 mm (0.2 in). Front brakes received bigger rotors and redesigned calipers, and ergonomics were altered with elevated footpegs. In order to minimize friction and weight, the engine was overhauled with 80 percent new internals. The bores of the cylinders were treated with aluminum composites, and new pistons were installed. It also received a bigger radiator and a stainless steel exhaust header.
