The outgoing Honda Fireblade is getting a bit long in the tooth now – it’s been around since 2012 – but it’s still one of the best road-going superbikes you can buy.
It might not have the headline-grabbing power figures or electronic rider aids of the latest superbikes from other manufacturers, but it more than makes up for it with bags of easy grunt, a smooth throttle, flawless power curve and balanced handling. The SP version pictured here also comes with Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes.
The last pure Fireblades?
