Every so often a model comes along that rewrites the rulebook for sports motorcycles, one of the most influential of modern times being Honda's Fireblade. Launched in 1992, the Fireblade blew away the opposition – principally Yamaha's FZR1000 and Suzuki's GSX-R1100 - with its combination of litre-bike performance and a 600-sized package. Superbly styled and evocatively titled, it was recognised as a future classic almost immediately and early and unmolested examples command high prices today. This example was first owned by one of British boxing's most flamboyant and controversial champions, Chris Eubank, who at the peak of his career in the 1990s held the world middleweight and super-middleweight titles. Paperwork proving Chris Eubank's ownership is on file. Chris designed the Honda's red and yellow colour scheme and had it painted with his initials and the words 'Simply the Best', a reference to the Tina Turner song that he made his fight entrances to. The current (third) owner acquired the Fireblade in April 2013. Described by the private vendor as in generally excellent condition, the machine is offered with DVLA MoT history printout, current MoT certificate and old/current V5C documents. The original exhaust silencer, spare key, owner's manual and service booklet, both in pristine condition, are included in the sale.
