Is Honda's new CBR1000RR hot or not?

Honda’s CBR1000RR/Fireblade has stood patiently by the wayside all these years while its contemporaries in the fiercely competitive liter-class sportbike category have bulked themselves up, delivering levels of performance and technology not seen anywhere but the MotoGP and World Superbike paddocks.

Finally, however, Honda has answered the call. Or at least we think it has, with these spy photos of what looks to be the 2017 Honda CBR100RR. Freshly styled bodywork is the most obvious difference between old and new, but we have to imagine what lies underneath those clothes has been thoroughly updated as well.

Troy's been riding motorcycles and writing about them since 2006, getting his start at Rider Magazine. From there, he moved to Sport Rider Magazine before finally landing at Motorcycle.com in 2011. A lifelong gearhead who didn't fully immerse himself in motorcycles until his teenage years, Troy's interests have always been in technology, performance, and going fast. Naturally, racing was the perfect avenue to combine all three. Troy has been racing nearly as long as he's been riding and has competed at the AMA national level. He's also won multiple club races throughout the country, culminating in a Utah Sport Bike Association championship in 2011. He has been invited as a guest instructor for the Yamaha Champions Riding School, and when he's not out riding, he's either wrenching on bikes or watching MotoGP.

    I'm just excited Honda is FINALLY making a whole redesign. Personally I don't care if this bike makes less hp than the other supersports. All I care about is that they refine it, make it look sexy, reliable and add all the gadgetry of BMW and the likes including Cruise Control and heated grips.

    While everyone will be clamoring to get this bike in 2017, I will quietly snap up one of the left over 2015's or 2016's on the dealer showrooms for steal. I prefer a long proven design over a brand new model on its first two years! I know about the Yamaha R1 transmission issues and the 2008/09 CBR1000RR piston slap issues. LOL!
