Hot new road-focused Fireblade and exotic RVF1000 V4 for 2017

Honda are planning to unleash two new sportsbikes with a heavily updated CBR1000RR Fireblade and an all-new RVF1000 V4, which will draw much of its inspiration from the RC213V-S MotoGP replica.

If given the go-ahead, the new Fireblade – expected to arrive in 2017 – would be based on the current CBR1000RR, but sporting a refresh that will drag it firmly into the superbike electronics war.

Regardless of the updates, the Fireblade would continue to be aimed at those owners who want a more affordable road bike that has been tuned and built to be usable, rather than focused on pure track performance.

Those wanting something that has been designed as a track weapon from the outset will have to dig a little deeper and set their sights on the RVF1000 V4. Providing it gets the green light, this bike is likely to target the likes of Yamaha’s YZF-R1M, Aprilia’s RSV4 RF, and the Ducati Panigale R – arriving with a price tag of around £25,000.
