A modern classic or a future classic? You decide, but either way a sure fire iconic investment to either be enjoyed or tucked away/put on display as 90’s artwork.


Where as Yamaha & Suzuki were the king of the hill in terms of outright power with the FZR & GSXR, the Fireblade was more about chassis technology, weight saving & crisp handling.

Do not for one minute think the Fireblade disappointed in a straight line though, it was snapping at the heels of the GSXR & FZR from the off & once a corner appeared the GSXR & FZR could not stick with the Fireblade. The sector had no choice but to take notice & focus more on handling than outright straight line pace to get anywhere near the Fireblade, it was not really until the R1 in 1998 that the crown was taken away from Honda. It could be regarded as somewhat of a trend setter!

Originally supplied in Jersey, the bike has traceable ownership from new until present, with copies of old V5’s & a letter from the previous owner.

Also in the file is the original purchase invoice, spare key, original booklets & old MOT’s.

Body & Paintwork

As you would expect of a bike with such little mileage, it is in superb condition throughout.

All paintwork and decals appear to be original, the black & silver colour scheme makes for a very striking bike indeed, sure to attract compliments wherever you may choose to ride it.

No damage to any of the panels, seats are in great condition, original screen is still fitted, along with original mirrors & indicators, the number plate holder is original with no modifications (‘cutting down’ of the number plate holders was very common). The bike still even has the original tyres fitted. (we would of course recommend new tyres to be fitted should a buyer choose to ride the bike).

Overall a truly beautiful example throughout.

Interior & Trim

All trims/switchgears are in fantastic condition.


As you would expect with such low miles, the bike runs beautifully & the engine is very quiet.

We have currently drained the fuel from the bike & removed the battery, predicting that the bike will likely go into a collection with such low miles, obviously we can easily & quickly have the bike up & running should a buyer choose so.

Aesthetically the engine is free of any damage, and presents exactly as it should do.

Running Gear

As can be seen in the pictures, all running gear is in superb order, you could argue the bikes looks like it has never been ridden at all!
