A mate of mine, Peter, crashed his 07′ Repsol Fireblade over in Tasmania back in February. It’s taken him a while to get on top of his injuries and sort out a new motorcycle. He decided to go with a change from sports style of the ‘Blade. Pete wound up buying a Honda CB1000R and is loving it. He really likes the torque of the detuned ‘Blade motor and the ease of riding an unfaired, short wheelbase machine.
