The British division of Honda announced that on top of the 0% APR finance package available until the end of September, it is also offering a new ‘Sports Pack’ until the end of 2011. Honda is launching this offer to increase the appeal of the CBR1000RR Fireblade. The Sports Pack is offered to customers who buy the standard and ABS-equipped versions across the Fireblade range.
It features a variety of Honda Genuine Accessories that includes higher screen, seat cowl, Akrapovic exhaust and a bike cover. The non ABS model also gets a rear tire hugger.
When taken individually, the (ABS equipped) accessories are priced about £1400 while the standard version is priced at £1600 (standard) depending on color options.
However, those who buy a new Fireblade could benefit from the value offered by the Sports Pack with a retail price of only £599 for the ABS pack and £699 for the standard pack. The CBR1000RR Fireblade for 2011 is available with three new color variants.
What’s expected to be popular is a new HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) tricolor version that has new colors throughout, including an exciting gold trim, white wheels and HRC stickers on the middle and upper front cowl, rear fender and front fender.
Fireblade’s links to the Moto GP-dominating RC211V are shown off by its new full Honda Repsol racing livery that emphasizes its race bred technology and heritage.
In addition, there’s a special Graphite Black version that’s highlighted by its black wheels. Honda asserts that it is placing emphasis on the bodywork’s clean lines that provide a strong contrast to the silver colored frame.
