Though it might sound like April Fool's joke, but Honda has in fact slashed pricing of its CBR1000RR-R by whopping 10 lakh. The motorcycle is now available for purchase at 23.56 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Needless to say, this is a colossal price cut considering that the bike was launched introduced in India only last year at nearly 33 lakh mark.

At the original price, the Fireblade came out to be nearly twice as expensive as other bikes in its competition, including the Kawasaki ZX-10R at 15.83 lakh, Ducati Panigale V4 at 23.50 lakh, and the Aprilia RSV4 at 23.69 lakh.

The company claims that the new Fireblade has taken shape with the learnings from the RC213V-S ‘street-legal MotoGP machine’. It has been designed from the ground up and its engine, handling and aerodynamics have been tuned for 'outright track performance'.

The new Fireblade comes derived from the company's racebike. “The fact that the engine and chassis technology of the RC213V-S ‘street-legal MotoGP machine’ and the aerodynamics of RC213V MotoGP bike has been used in creating these machines leaves no doubt of what they could achieve on the tarmac," says the company.
