New Fireblade prices revealed

PRICES for the new Honda Fireblade range have been revealed ahead of the model’s press launch this weekend.

The base model will cost £15,225 on the road while the SP version will be £19,125.

The cost of the top-spec SP2 version (pictured) has not yet been confirmed but leaked prices on US dealer websites indicate it will be around £22,000.

Yamaha's YZF-R1 starts at £15,599 while the high-spec R1M is £19,399.

The Firedblade SP2 could be set to become the most expensive machine in its class, with Kawasaki’s ZX-10RR Performance edition coming in at £16,949.

It's a significant step up from the 2016 Blade, which can still be picked up with a list price of £12,799 for the base edition or £14,499 for the SP.

The price of the 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 has yet to be confirmed and BMW’s HP4 Race could change everything when it arrives later this year.

The Fireblade press launch is at the Portimao circuit in Portugal this weekend, so we’ll be able to tell you soon whether it’s worth the slightly higher than expected price with a full review and video review.

Too much Money. Honda taking the piss again.

Curses Visordown!!!! Hearing that just made me choke on my bleedin' cornflakes!!! Off to the Yamaha/BMW dealers then to put my money down on an S1000r or MT10. Twice the fun, loaded with electrico-tricketary and best part of 5k cheaper!!! I think this spells the death of the sports bike because nobody is going to pay that much. I await with baited breath to see what Suzuki do with the price of the new Gixxer Thou....

The base Fireblade is going to outperform the outgoing Fireblade SP. So if you see it that way the base Fireblade is only 726 bucks more than the old SP.

The S1000RR for example makes 8 more horsepower but weighs 9 kg more aswell. In my book, less weight > horsepower deficit. There's a reason Guy Martin ditched BMW to team up with McPint for this years TT.

dude, they don't race consumer production bikes at the TT.

Sure they don't but they have to build the new bike from the base don't they? Why would Guy Martin take up a Fireblade over the BMW that's won the few TTs last year?

It's not Hondas fault - that'll be the exchange rate for you - 20% swing to the adverse = 20% more expensive imports.

Yep. Just look at the pricing for the new R6.
