The flame that burns brightest is the will to challenge, and from that burning passion we created something quite extraordinary in 1992. Something that not only created a new sport bike category, but also changed sport motorcycles forever. Now, in its 30th Anniversary year, the very name ‘Fireblade’ still sets hearts racing.
