Looks a lot like the 2002 Fireblade (CBR954 or whatever it is in the US).
Naming it the Fireblade is a load easier than remembering what capacity it was for what year!
Why don't Honda standardise their naming of their bikes? What Honda US calls the Hawk is the NTV600 (or something like that anyway) in the UK.
I thought the NTV was the "Revere" over in Europe. The Hawk is the NT650. ( no "V" ) The Revere is like the hawk but without the cool single sided swingarm. I've never seen a Revere in the states. I sure do miss my 89 Hawk.

Whatever! This makes my point I suppose. The suits at Honda seem to be deliberately making things difficult.
Is the VTR1000F (not the SP1/2) called the Firestorm over there?
I know the VTR1000 SP1 is the RC51. It sometimes gets called that over here - but not officially. Same with the RC30 (respect is due) and the RC45.
Instead of speculating and going by the Euro version, just wait until 9:30 PM (central time) on 9/12, log onto http://preview.hondamotorcycles.com and enter hrca for the user name and 2003 for the password. You'll be able to see the whole 2003 lineup.

Here's the correct URL. I didn't need to provide an ID or password. As of 8:45PM (PDT) the only new sportbike is the CBR600RR. However, there is a new 1800cc Valkyrie that should scare the bejeezus out of women and children.
