Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Honda CBR 1000RR:
- Fuel consumption (fuel economy) measured in L/100km or MPG (miles per gallon) shows how many liters of fuel the motorcycle burns for a 100km rum and respectively how many miles it can run with one gallon of fuel. In the average case Honda CBR 1000RR will burn 6.35 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 37 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 18.0 liters (or 4.8 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Honda CBR 1000RR can run 283 kilometers or 176 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 999 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. The Honda CBR 1000RR engine has a displacement volume of 999 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 130 mm ground clearance - this can be defined as the distance between the lowest point of the CBR 1000RR's chassis and the level ground surface below it. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Honda CBR 1000RR bore and stroke explaination
- 76x55.1 bore and stroke - bore is indeed the size of the piston presented by its diameter and stroke is the depth of the piston measured from top to bottom. The stroke value actually represents the distance that the piston undergo in one stroke. Based on the technical specifications above Honda CBR 1000RR has a bore with diameter of 76 mm and the length of the stroke is 55.1 mm. If bore is bigger than stroke as it is with this Honda engine then we say that CBR 1000RR has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 12.3:1 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. If you got a motorcycle with a greater compression ratio for its specific engine it is getting better fuel economy than it would if it had a lesser compression ratio.
- Chain final drive: There are currently three ways to drive power from a motorcycle engine to its rear wheel - chain, belt and shaft drive. Since they all have their specific advantages it is hard to tell the best among them. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of Honda CBR 1000RR is chain.
chain final driveOne of the most economical way to drive horsepower from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle is achieved with the chain drive and therefore it is still the most used among the three options by bike manufacturers. However chains have their down points - more frequent need of maintenance (lubrication and cleaning) which means that a biker should always keep an eye on the chain especially in rainy days or dusty roads.
- Liquid cooling: the constant cooling of the motorcycle engine is mandatory for its efficiency and durability. Some of the main advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles are their better performance in high traffic and speeding and that generally their engines are deigned with higher horsepower.Honda CBR 1000RR  - installation of turn signals
- If the Honda CBR 1000RR turn signals need to be replaced you do not need to look around for a professional to fix that problem. As the motorcycle turn signals cables are generally color coded it would not be a hassle disconnecting and reconnecting the wires. It could be as simple as disconnecting both the male and female ends if box connection is used. After making sure that the new Honda CBR 1000RR turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Honda CBR 1000RR protective cover
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Honda CBR 1000RR are important when choosing one. The overall measures of the bike could be increased by some aftermarket accessories. Accessories like saddles bags, backrest or windshield will call the need for a larger motorcycle cover.

That’s one of the best bikes I have ridden and it runs with ease. The first thing that impressed me was how the engine reacts at low speeds. When you have killed the speed for a corner and you are already out of it and want to put some power on it delivers it instantly and gets you speeding again. It is like when you are off the throttle, the heart of the Honda CBR 1000RR is prepared for you to bring the power back into action.
The other amazing feature of this bike is the combined braking – the automatic activation of the rear brake when you squeeze the front one. The difference I felt is that the bike is much more balanced this way while killing the speed especially in sudden situations.
Positive accents: The accents among the positives are the ability of sudden acceleration at low speeds and the balanced braking due to the combined system between the front and the rear brake.
Bad points: Not really a compliant but it could do with more comfortable seat.

Buying the HONDA’s CBR1000RR produced in 2007 as a cheaper alternative to the latest YAMAHA’s R1 I was surprised how fast and powerful this bike really is. Amazing acceleration over 100 mph and yet amazing handling at this high speed. The appearance of the bike is also astonishing – a real eye-catcher in the city. Girls just love it. The bike behaves perfectly in the city and on the highway with or without a passenger. You got to be careful on a wet road though as it is a really powerful bike.
It seems to me that it eats the tires and the brake pads like a monster but that might be because of my style of riding which is kind of aggressive – sudden acceleration and often squeezing the brakes, because I ride mainly in the city.
Positive accents: Great engine and astonishing design.
Bad points: I have owned a smaller 600cc HONDA before and this CBR1000RR doesn’t handle as well as the smaller bike. Wants new tires and brake pads too often.

I just love my CBR 1000RR Fireblade although it’s not of the newest ones. Mine is 2006 model but still it looks amazing and offers a great feeling of easy handling combined with fast and powerful engine. It gives a great fuel economy if ridden at reasonable speeds. I mean no aggressive riding and observing the speed limits. One of my friends own a 2004 Honda CBR 1000RR and we have switched bikes on several rides and I can tell that mine is lighter and more powerful due to some improvements in the suspension settings of the bike and implementing a lighter swingarm and completely new exhaust system. Good job of Honda’s engineers and designers.
I always had to top up the oil somewhere in the middle of its mileage to the next oil change. But that might not be a common problem as I have never heard of other bikers complaining of their Hondas burning oil.
Positive accents: Good fuel economy in urban areas and on highways. Amazing look and sublime handling and brakes.
Bad points: Mine is burning oil a little bit.
