Compared to the 2014-2016 model 90% of the main components have been upgraded, power is up by 10.7 bhp, weight down an amazing 14 kg and as a result the power to weight ratio is up roughly 14%. The new muffler accounts for 2.8 kg off the weight, the engine 2 kg and the smaller Titanium fuel tank 1.3 kg, with minor amounts off the frame, swingarm, calipers, wheels, radiator and slipper clutch as well.
The electronics package is impressive, with new cornering ABS taking input from the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), traction control with three modes and wheelie control. Track mode gives you full power with Winding and Street offering increasing levels of torque control and engine braking. There are also two user modes where any of the various systems can be set at the level you prefer; the torque control offers 9 levels of adjustment and there are 5 levels of power to choose from. Check the pics above for all the combos.
The fancy new colour TFT dash has three modes to play with in Street, Circuit and Mechanic. Street is the base mode, Circuit adds lap times/counts/best lap and Mechanic adds things like grip angle, coolant temperature and battery voltage. The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a Bridgestone S21 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/50 at the rear.
Accessories include a quickshifter (£695), colour coded rear hugger (£195) and colour coded seat cowl (£195).
Colours: Black, redDid You Know?
2017 is the 25th anniversary of the blade.
Up And Down The Range
The £19,125 SP version gets you a quickshifter with downshift assist, Ohlins S-EC semi-active suspension and Brembo brakes with new high performance brake pads. It's 1 kg lighter than the base Fireblade, but has a lower 820 mm single seat and is available in a red/white/dark blue colour scheme, with silver frame and gold wheels.
For £22,250 you can have the rare Fireblade SP2 however only 150 of the 500 production run are coming to Europe. The colour scheme is similar to the SP but with light blue/gold detailing and you get bronze spiral Marchesini wheels. The main difference lies in the revised cylinder heads derived from the RC213V MotoGP machine and the availability of a race kit. It also weighs in at 195 kg.
2019: Electronics update separating wheelie control from traction control and slightly updated paint schemes.
