Default Spy shot: Honda CBR with touch-screen electronic-adjustable suspension...

Spy shots: Touch-screen multi-mode suspension CBR spied
By Guy Procter

MCN Article





MCN’s spies have struck gold – ‘the original gold’ in fact – capturing this unique Fireblade (called Fireblade in Europe, Honda CBR in the States) with Multistrada-beating multi-mode suspension.

The development mule was spotted near the Swedish HQ of pre-eminent suspension firm Ohlins – architects of Ducati’s rapturously-received DES riding mode system on the new Multistrada 1200 S.

Unlike the Multistrada however, the Fireblade’s electronically-adjusted forks and shock are operated by a completely new touch-screen interface. It’s also the first time electronic suspension has been fitted to a road-going superbike.

Noriyuki Haga raced a similar set-up to a double win in the Vallelunga round of WSB in 2008 – prompting the FIM into a hasty ban.






What this means to you: You can turn a pure race bike into a user-friendly city bike with one touch.

First cars, now bikes...

So the most interesting Honda is their bike and new Lawn Mower? This seems pretty interesting (though I could be wrong I am not a bike guy).

Yes. Honda motorcycles are great. However, their cars have much to be desired...

Easy $5-6000 minimum if I had to speculate, probably more.

What about the new lawn mower?

That is some amazing technology being applied to a motorcycle.
