Having this book in your pocket is just like having a real marque expert by your side. Benefit from the author’s years of Honda FireBlade ownership, learn how to spot a bad bike quickly, and how to assess a promising one like a professional. Get the right bike at the right price!
Many words have been written about the Honda FireBlade, about its history, performance, lineage and specification, but few tell you what to look for when buying one second-hand. That’s what this book is about – it aims at being a straightforward, practical guide to buying a used Fireblade. It won’t list all the correct colour combinations for each year, or analyse the bike’s design philosophy, or consider its background as a standard-setting sports bike – there are excellent books listed at the end of this one which do all of that. But hopefully it will help you avoid buying a dud. Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying one of these Hondas, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, and a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork.
