Motorcycle.com reviews the 2008 Honda CBR1000RR. Be sure to read the article and check out the video, as well. We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the bike along with the article, so be sure to post your comments and feedback within this thread :)



Ah, a new Honda literbike. Lighter, of course. Faster, too. And with a bit more than 110 horsepower making its way to the rear wheel, this CBR is a rocket!

“Huh? Dude, the 2008 CBR1000RR better have more power than that!”

Indeed it does, but I was flashing back a decade to the first press launch of my motojournalist career. The changes made to the 1998 CBR900RR made it the best big CBR ever, and I was awed by how fast yet controllable that new scalpel was.

Very nice bike but I just like the front face. They should have kept the 2007 face and everything would have been good. It just doesn't look mean like the 06-07 does. Just my .02cents

I had the 2007 version, then traded up to this 2008. I love the bike. I thought the HP was closer to 150 though. I have only been riding a sport bike for a little over a year. I took my time to learn the handling and the power. I do have a question: How does this bike compare to a similar R1?

Hello Friends,

The CBR1000RR, also known as the Fireblade, is a 999 cc (61.0 cu in) liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder sport bike that was introduced by Honda in 2004 to replace the CBR954RR. The Honda CBR1000RR was developed by the same team that was behind the MotoGP series. Many of the new technologies introduced in the Honda CBR600RR, a direct descendant of the RC211V, were used in the new CBR1000RR such as a lengthy swingarm, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, and Dual Stage Fuel Injection System (DSFI). The Honda CBR1000RR was the successor to the CBR954RR. While evolving the CBR954RR design, few parts were carried over to the CBR1000RR. The compact 998 cc (60.9 cu in) in-line four was a new design, with different bore and stroke dimensions, race-inspired cassette-type six-speed gearbox, all-new ECU-controlled ram-air system, dual-stage fuel injection, and center-up exhaust featuring a new computer-controlled butterfly valve.

Thanks and Regards,
Umang Kumar
