Marc Marquez He wasn’t born yet 30 years ago, but he knows the story of Honda. In fact, in the past few hours he has published a post instagram paying homage to the mythical CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADE, a motorcycle that made history.
For its 30th anniversary, in fact, the Japanese house presented a EICMA a new coloring for its more modern heir. The colors are therefore those of the 1992, but it is clear that the mechanics totally change.
Who knows when Marquez will be able to enjoy the pleasure of riding this bike, given that at the moment he is still struggling with the diplopia. Indeed, the Spaniard had to close his season prematurely MotoGP and he could not even do the tests, hoping that he can return to the 2022.
