What Is It?

  • Excellent brakes, good fuel economy
  • At this price, not many!

The 1998 model was more evolution than revolution, for instance most of the engine's internal components were re-designed to minimise weight and friction. Other changes include a new upper fairing, headlight cluster, box section swingarm and larger 310mm front discs.

Features include:

  • Dual 310mm discs with 2 piston calipers up front
  • Rear 220mm disc with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable 45mm Showa fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable read pro-link suspension with 125mm travel
  • 6 speed transmission
  • 4-2-1 exhaust system

The liquid cooled 918cc four stroke four cylinder engine achieves maximum power of 130bhp at 10,500rpm. The triple box twin spar Aluminium frame remains the same as before.

A new Aluminium silencer helped to reduce the dry weight slightly to 180kg and two special editions were available:

  • 50th Anniversary celebrating 50 years of Honda motorbike production.
  • Evolution Fireblade built to celebrate the 100th win at the Isle of Man TT race, although this was more of a publicity stunt and retailed at a jaw dropping £22,325!

Colour schemes and RRP:

  • 1998: Orange/black, red/white/blue, grey/black and yellow
  • 1999: Red/white/blue, blue/black/red and blue/gold
