Honda launches new special edition bikes

Honda has announced the launch of two special edition CBR1000RR Fireblade models.

The vehicles have specially-created paintwork and may attract the attention of anyone seeking bike insurance.

Furthermore, the editions commemorate two TT road racers - Ian Hutchinson and John McGuinness.

Each of the versions has special touches that acknowledge the achievements of the racers.

Hutchinson stated: "It's an awesome bike to ride, the Fireblade - how we did in the Superstock race shows how good it is. I won't be riding mine though: it will be going straight in the living room!"

The rider also said that he was touched by the gesture made by the manufacturer in producing the model.

Meanwhile, a Fireblade edition is currently hanging from a window display in London's Oxford Street.

The vehicle has been installed in the Selfridges store and is being viewed by more than 125,000 people each day.
