The Mercury Cars Guide : September 12th 2009
Saturday, September 12, 2009 Classifieds 62 300 400 carsguide.com.au ---17 small torque Honda CBR1000 RR Price: From $20,490 Engine: 999cc in-line four-cylinder Power: 125kW Torque: 110Nm Transmission: Six- speed with slipper- clutch, chain-drive Tank: 18 litres Dry weight: 210kg Seat height: 820mm Brakes: Tokico twin 320m discs with four- piston calipers front, 220mm disc with single-piston caliper rear Suspension: Fully adjustable Showa 43mm front forks, Pro-Link monoshock rear Warranty: Two years/unlimited km Braking system a lifesaver IN CONTROL: The Honda CBR1000 RR's anti-skid brakes are a godsend. Mark Hinchcliffe RIDING a motor- bike is a matter of trust. You trust the machinery to do what it's told --- and you trust yourself to tell it what to do. That trust develops with time, which is why riders on old machinery can still keep up with the new boys. It also explains why Hon- da's CBR1000 RR with anti- skid brakes is --- for now --- the best buy in the litre- class sportsbike class in the country. Honda has dubbed its anti-skid system e-CABS, which sounds like a type of taxi payment, but works like a professional chauf- feur. How? It removes one of the main areas where road- riding sportsbike riders fall down --- brake modulation. Have a look at the battle scars on parked bikes and many are obviously the result of low-speed, carpark-style losses. Too much effort or not enough concentration when apply- ing the front brake locks the front wheel and the rider and the machine hit the bitumen. Even a fall at walking pace can lead to a repair bill well above the $1000 it costs to get the anti- skid technology. An hour on the Fireblade is enough time to learn to trust the brakes like you trust your mum. Grab a handful of lever at 5km/h and the bike stops. No skids, no slides, just maximum deceleration for the lean angle and road condition. Magic. Do the same thing 100km/h quicker over potholed roads and you'll be sold. The anti-skid system is the icing on what is already an amazing bike. Glenn Allerton leads the national superbike championship on a Honda. Admittedly, his Moto- logic racer does without the anti-skid technology --- and the 11kg weight penalty it carries --- but Allerton doesn't have to deal with delinquent drivers, loads falling off trucks and pedes- trians who can't see fewer than four wheels. In the real world, it is a potential lifesaver. Yes, you might lose a tenth of a second braking for a corner onatrackdayandafew hundredths of a second hauling the extra weight up to speed on the exit --- but that's assuming you've got the skill to take the regular brakes to the limit in the first place. If you're that good, you can always switch the system off, then fire it back up for the ride home. The 11kg makes little difference on the road --- think of it as half a tank of fuel --- meaning the Fire- blade still handles with the neutrality of a Swiss refer- ee. The engine pulls sweet- ly from low revs so rolling in traffic isn't a chore and the Honda is still one of the better superbike pillion perches. The four-pot Tokico brakes will pull your fil- lings out, meaning most riders will only activate the anti-skid software if they intentionally try it out or need it in an emergency. In both cases, you'll ap- preciate the decision to buy it.
