Honda comes to the city of Milan with a host of its best motorcycles for this year’s Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori (EICMA). The lineup is headed by a very special, limited-edition super sports flagship, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP 30th Anniversary, and Honda’s brand-new adventure scooter, the ADV350.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is EICMA?

    EICMA or Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori is an annual motorcycle show held in Milan, Italy.
  • When will EICMA happen?

    EICMA opens its doors from November 25 to 28.
  • What other bikes does Honda have in its EICMA lineup aside from the Fireblades and the ADV350?

    Honda will also bring its NT1100, Hornet, SH125i and SH150i, X-ADV, Forza 125 and Forza 350, CB650R and CBR650R, CMX500 Rebel and CMX1100 Rebel, as well as the GL1800 Gold Wing and GL1800 Gold Wing ‘Tour.’
  • The former is joined by the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP. The stunning Limited Edition 30th Anniversary version of the Fireblade SP will feature a tricolor paint scheme merged with “brushstroke” style elements of the original 1992 machine.

    The standard Fireblade SP, on the other hand, will be available in Grand Prix Red and Matte Pearl Morion Black, both sporting gold wheels.

    Meanwhile, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade wears an updated Grand Prix Red paint scheme with prominent white number boards on the front fairing.

    Honda also says that the changes made to these Fireblades are more than skin deep. Technical adjustments have been made to the 215hp, inline, four-cylinder engine that focus on improving mid-corner acceleration and drive said the Minato-based motorcycle company.

    The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) was also optimized for refined rear tire traction management and throttle feel, with input from HRC’s riders.

    In addition, Honda said that a new material and surface finish for the Fireblade’s front Nissin brake calipers’ pistons improves braking performance and consistency in race conditions. The Fireblade SP’s Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (SE-C) and Brembo equipment also offer top-draw suspension and braking, alongside a newly optimized quick shifter.

    Following the Fireblade family is the new ADV350. Honda’s newest adventure scooter feels right at home as it is built at Honda’s nearby Atessa factory in Italy.

    The ADV350 comes with a 330cc, enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+), SOHC, four-valve, engine that peaks at 29hp with 31.5Nm of torque. It also features motorcycle-style USD forks, tubular steel frame, remote reservoir rear shocks, and ample ground clearance.

    It rides on 15-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels wrapped with block-pattern tubeless tires.

    The ADV350 is available in Spangle Silver Metallic, Mat Carbonium Gray Metallic, and Mat Carnelian Red Metallic.

    Other Honda motorcycles appearing in the Milan Motorcycle Show include the NT1100, the Hornet, the SH125i and SH150i, X-ADV, Forza 125 and Forza 350, CB650R and CBR650R, CMX500 Rebel and CMX1100 Rebel, as well as the GL1800 Gold Wing and GL1800 Gold Wing Tour.

    The EICMA happens from November 25 to 28, 2021.
