- Gets updated electronic aids.
- New paint schemes.
- Expected to arrive in India sometime next year.
Honda unveiled the 2019 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade at the 2018 EICMA in Milan. While the bike may not live up to the expectations of its renderings, it only gets minor electronic tweaks that differentiate it from the previous model.
The manufacturer has updated the ECU to differentiate between traction intervention and wheelie control and now allows the rider to set in different levels for each. It shows up as a three-level ‘W’ setting beside the power, traction control and engine braking settings. The ABS has also been tweaked and so has the ride-by-wire throttle system.
The 2019 CBR1000RR Fireblade continues with the 999cc, inline-four engine that produces 186bhp and 114Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed transmission with slipper clutch. The bike also gets new paint schemes of matte black and red with white. The SP version gets the tricolour colour scheme with a darker shade of blue highlights.
We can expect Honda to launch the 2019 CBR1000RR Fireblade in India later next year with a slight increase in price.
