The return of the Urban Tiger Fireblade
Snapshot: Honda is bringing back the liveried version of Fireblade which surfaced for the first time in 1994
Honda has decided to resurrect a legend from the ashes. That is why the Urban Tiger Fireblade is making a comeback. When it was launched for the first time 20 years ago, it was noted majorly for the 'fox eye' headlights and the brilliant graphics.
Honda unveiled its latest avatar of the Fireblade at British Superbike round at Snetterton, where it raced as a wild card entry. Honda also announced that the livery will be available on production models July onwards for £ 13,299 and comes with an Akrapovic exhaust as a standard fitment. This bike will bring back the nostalgia factor for many who remember Urban Tiger from the mid 90s very fondly. As of now, there are no pictures available of the Urban Tiger, but we are sure that it will be worth the wait.
On the occasion, Honda UK's Head of Motorcycles, Nick Campolucci said, "We decided to take that one step further by offering customers the chance to own a modern version of this retro livery. The Urban Tiger is one of the most loved Fireblade paint schemes in the model’s 22-year history and it’s still as popular today as it was back in 1994. Now Fireblade fans can have the best of both worlds – the iconic design on the latest evolution of the machine.”
