It’s a lovely piece of motorcycle for a Monday morning that’ll get you smiling. This is the factory Honda World Superbike Fireblade in testing garb, photographed between test sessions.

Campaigned this year on the world stage by Leon Haslam and Alvaro Bautista, the bike is all-new and comes with a host of aerodynamic wings. Think around 235bhp in race trim and plenty of trick bits when it turns a first wheel in anger at the season opener held at Phillip Island on February 28 – but chances are that you already know all that.

So for now, enjoy the images. Looks absolutely awesome, doesn’t it?


Number 19 on the front of the bike means that this is Alvaro Bautista’s race bike.
