Fireblades are just the 1000's as far as I've always known.

The CBR600 used to be called the Hurricain (87,88) here in the USA until the insurance goons had their way.

Well, sportbikes got a bad rap long before we had a chance to complain about kids on bikes to fast for them and killing themselves. I beleive it was the early 90s that the insurance goons had there way and companies had to name them something more pedestrian then FIREBLADE and HURRICANE that won't attract kids to buy them like moths to a flame then kill themselves. Same thing happens today, but it takes us out of the limelight that much more.
