I'm fairly new to bikes, I love my RR, ride it as much as I can, but I was wondering about the rest of the Honda line and how they all fit together.

Did the 1000RR replace the 954 in 03?

Are all 1000RR's fireblades? or is that a special edition of some kind? What's on a fireblade that isn't on a standard 1000RR?

were 954's FI?

what years did 954's f4i's, f4's, f3's, and 929's run?


Honda sells new the 1100XX, 1000RR, RC51, 600RR, and F4i, correct?

Do they not sell a more sport-tourer style bike? like something to go up against a YZF600R Thundercat...

Does someone have firsthand experience on how fast and how different the 1000RR, RC51, and 954 all feel from eachother?

What kind of changes are responsible for the big hp jump from the 954's to the 1000RR's?

I know its a lot of questions, but you all are the ppl to ask right?

all the years are what i think they are...
definitely correct me if i'm wrong.

CBR600F - F2 (92,93,94) - F3 (95,96,97)- F4 (98,99,00) - F4i (01+) - F5 RR (03+)

CBR900RR - 929RR (00,01) - 954RR (02,03) - 1000RR (04+)
all 9xx series were fireblades. i think people still call the 1000RR the blade since it IS the blade's successor.

yep, the 954's were also using honda's PGM-FI.

the ones honda sells now are on the site.
the blackbird (XX series) is still around, yep.

i don't remember honda having sport-touring types.
the F2 was considered to be sharp corner scything race-ready for its time.
i would now consider the new F4i to be toury, with its funky banana seat.

there wasn't a large jump in engine power from the 954 to 1000rr.
in fact, i think the 954 is outright, faster...
its just that the 1000rr chassis is much more sorted and stable.

Wasnt the VFR considered a sport tourer? :scratch: Not quite as sporty the the 600s and RR's, much more comfortable, but still packing some punch. The only thing that honda has on its website now for sport tourers are the ST1300's.

954's dyno ~135. I thought pretty much all 04 literbikes dyno 149-150 (cept for the ZX10R which is like 160+ or something)

yes, the vfr 800 is a sport tour, the f4i is sort of a sporty tour with new addition of a one piece seat for 03+. The 1100xx is not for sale anymore they stop selling them in 03. honda does not even have the xx on its website anymore. yes the 1000rr did replace the 954 and the 954 replaced the 929. dont forget about the 919 and the 599 they are more of a sport tour/ naked bike.

in europe, they call the 9XX and 1000RR "Fireblade."

what messes me up is that the VTR1000 in the US is the half-faired twin. in europe, VTR1000 is another name for the RC51. in the US, the RC51 is called the RVT1000. my buddy is trying to order parts for a 2003 RC51, and when he calls europe, it gets very confusing. add to that the SP-1 and SP-2 designations, and it's downright nutty.

so my buddy's bike is a RVT1000, RC51, SP-2. yeesh. i got through school with fewer numbers/letters!

would the super hawk count as an almost sport tourer?

Superhawk is definitly naked. The ST line and the 11XX are your sport tourers, and all the reviews I've read on the VFR say that it's truely in a class by itself. The intereceptor is kind of like honda's technology flagship.

1991 was the first year Honda produced the F2. That was my first Honda sportbike experience. That bike was amazing at that time.
