PATENT: Here’s Honda’s MOVING wings-for-the-mirrors plan for the 2020 Fireblade


These are the latest drawings showing just how seriously Honda is taking it’s development of the Fireblade for next year.

The designs, unearthed by Motorrad magazine in Germany, show the new mirrors fitted with wings to smooth airflow around the extremities of the road-going bike. The designs appear to show the bike’s most outer wings able to be turned up or down for differing aero effects.

Indicators are built into the mirrors in the drawings, showing that this development for the next-gen bike really is set to debut on the roadster.

Expect the ‘wing-mirrors’ (sorry about that…) to appear on the Honda Fireblade at the end of this year at the big bike shows and be part of an updated Fireblade which will go on sale early 2020.
