CBR's new colours for SBK finale
NEW COLOURS FOR SBK FINALE: Honda promotes its 2013 Fireblade paint scheme with its CBR sporting new colours at the World Superbike finale in October 12. Inset - previous colour scheme used in 2012.
The Honda World Superbike team will be running its CBR 1000RR Fireblade in new colours for the final round of the 2012 championship at Magny-Cours, France.
A new colour scheme for the 2013 Fireblade was unveiled at the Intermot motorcycle exhibition in October 2012.
YOU CAN HAVE ONE TOO
To promote the new design the superbike team has kitted its racers in the colour-scheme, too.
The graphics on the racing version of Honda’s flagship sportsbike also feature the headlight stickers that will be obligatory in next year’s World Superbike championship.
Honda rider Jonathan Rea commented: “I like this new paint scheme, especially as it underlines the fact that we’re racing on production bikes that you can buy at your local Honda dealer. Ours are maybe a little more sophisticated, but the link is definitely there.”
The race on October 7, 2012 will be the only occasion that the new colour
scheme is run since the Honda team will run with title sponsor Pata for
the 2013 season with a new design for the racing CBR machines.
