Remember when a Japanese litre sportsbike was nudging $20,000?
Thanks to a strong dollar and stiffer competition, prices are down several thousand dollars.
Now Honda has released a special edition Repsol livery CBR1000RR at just $16,890.
While special edition models usually retain their value, you will have to figure in continued discounting which is on the cards.
Only 130 Limited Edition Repsol CBR1000RR bikes have been allocated for Australia and each one comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Meanwhile, the new Fireblade is arriving in three new standard colours: Tri-colour, black and red.
