Overview A 1mm larger bore saw the FireBlade s capacity increased to 918.5cc and the seating position was more relaxed, with 10mm taller bars and seat height. The chassis was also beefed up and the fairing redesigned. c The Blade s drag-reducing front mudguard was the same design as the one on Honda s NSR500 GP bike. c Phillip McCallen won the 1996 and 1997 Production TTs on the Blade.:
