2012 Honda Fireblade Pictures Leaked

Posted: 18 Aug 2011 10:00 PM PDT

What’s up people? These are the first photos of Honda's 2012 Fireblade. Besides the new angular styling, the bike has Big Piston Forks, new rear suspension, new clocks and lightweight wheels.

Those hoping for a V4 will be disappointed, as the engine appears almost identical to this year's model. Also, there are no signs of any traction control because the switchgear has no extra buttons and the new dash has nothing to indicate there are any S1000RR-rivalling electronics.

The bike in the photos does not have any wheel speed sensor rings, so it seems Honda will continue to give customers the option to do without ABS.

The photos were posted on Honda's Hong Kong Facebook page, but have now been taken down.

Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to order your copy of the 2011 print edition of Inline Performance Magazine HERE at the pre-order price until supplies last.
