    Default Honda CBR1000RR gets a Rs 2 lakh price-cut after reduction in Custom Duty

    Honda has announced a reduction in the price of their ‘Fireblades’. Both Honda CBR1000RR and CBR1000RR SP are set to get cheaper in India after the government reduced the custom duty. The price of the 2018 Fireblade now starts at 14.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).






    The New Price

    Indian government slashed the custom duty on Completely Built Up (CBU) products. The duty on CBU products has been reduced from 75 percent to 50 percent. As a result, a lot of the manufacturers have reduced the prices of their motorcycles models that are imported as CBUs. Honda has also joined the party by slashing the price of their Fireblade range. The prices of both the Honda CBR1000RR and the CBR1000RR SP have been reduced.

    To be precise, the price of the Honda CBR1000RR has dipped from Rs 16.78 lakh to Rs 14.78 lakh. On the other hand, the more premium CBR1000RR SP sees its current price tag at Rs 18.68 lakh compared to its earlier price of Rs 21.22 lakh. (Both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi)


    Honda CBR1000RR and CBR1000RR SP


    The 2018 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade draws power from a 999cc, inline four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed transmission. The fuel injected motor is good for churning out power and torque figures of 189 bhp and 114 Nm respectively. The braking on the Honda CBR1000RR is taken care of by twin 320mm disc brakes up front along with a single 220mm disc brake at the rear. ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) comes as standard to enhance safety and improve braking.





    The 2018 Fireblade has also joined the ‘electronic rider aid revolution’. It comes shod with a traction control system, selectable engine braking function, electronic steering damper and much more. It also gets a coloured TFT instrument cluster. Honda claims that the new model is lighter by 16 kg and its kerb weight now stands at 195 kg. This reduction in weight is said to improve the handling and make the Fireblade more agile.

    And their 650F weighs 215 KG.

    Why cant companies build decent middleweights with acceptable (150-160 KG) kerb weights.

    For that to happen, Honda needs to send its engineers to Daytona facility for training.

    No for that to happen, Honda needs to use an aluminium frame instead of the steel frame the 650 has currently. But when that happens, price goes up obviously and then people will cry even more
    To be honest Honda has nothing to prove given it's history of constant and often jaw dropping and even risky innovation-for eg the NR 750 or the gear driven cam vfrs. These cutting edge European brands you see today happily copied some of ideas from their early models
    I think Honda has lost its appetite and motivation for the cutting edge given the decline in the European market. At the end of the day profits have to be made. And they are in activas and cb shines so that is what we get.
    The CBR650f's predecessor(even though the 650f is a new design even engine wise), the cbr600f4- my current bike-models had proper aluminium twin spar frames and weighed in at ~ 160-dry and this is 2001 I am talking about so not that Honda doesn't know how to produce a lightweight bike
    The moment India starts buying 600 class in bulk, you'd see the Japs dropping proper but mass produced and hence cheap supersports

    Honda was a king of motorcycles in 90s. They came up with the formula of light weight and high power race replicas. RR was their invention.
    But now that Honda is gone. Only the Honda which makes small puny scooters.
