Many words have been written about the Honda FireBlade, about its history, performance, lineage and specification, but few tell you what to look for when buying one second-hand. That’s what this book is about - it aims to be a straightforward, practical guide to buying a used Fireblade.
It won’t list all the correct colour combinations for each year, or analyse the bike’s design philosophy, or consider its background as a standard-setting sports bike - there are excellent books listed at the end of this one which do all of that. But hopefully it will help you avoid buying a dud.
Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying one of these Hondas, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, and a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork.
A unique points scoring system allows a thorough assessment of the potential purchase and puts it the Fireblade into the correct price category for its condition.
