Honda CMX500 Rebel Unveiled At EICMA

Honda CMX500 Rebel Unveiled At EICMA”

Honda has this evening pulled the wraps off a brace of new Fireblade models ahead of the EICMA show.

Honda also tore the sheets away from a new CB1000R at the same event, but the changes are minimal to say the least. The 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is powered by the most powerful in-line four cylinder engine that Honda has ever made, and puts out maximum power of 212 bhp at 14,500 rpm and peak torque of 113 Nm at 12,500 rpm, with a kerb weight of just 201 kg.

The frame looks like it's been taken off the MotoGP grid, made from aluminium allow and increased rigidity in the vertical plane as well as torsional resistance but with more "give" in the horizontal to boost grip and feel.

A new exhaust also helps the CB500F-based parallel twin meet tough Euro5 emissions levels.

The 2020 Fireblade features new LED headlights with a ram-air duct in the centre.

Known amongst Malaysian sports riders as the "Rabbit", the Honda CBR1000RR, also known as the Fireblade, has a sterling reputation. The retro motorcycle gets a new Euro 5-compliant motor, updated trim and a cooler S edition. There are three default riding modes plus options to customise Power, Engine Brake and Wheelie Control, and the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which is essentially Honda's traction control system, now gets slip rate control. It gets second-generation semi-active Ohlins EC 43 mm NPX front forks, an Öhlins TTX36 Smart-EC rear shock, Brembo Stylema four-piston radial front calipers, and the Brembo monoblock rear caliper which is also derived from the RC213V.
