Launch of sales of thyssenkrupp carbon wheels for Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade
Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade – the Japanese manufacturer’s new superbike flagship can now be equipped with thyssenkrupp’s braided carbon wheels of the highest quality. The advantages of carbon wheels become especially obvious for a motorcycle, which was designed on and for the racetrack. The weight reduction of front as well as rear wheel of approximately 1.6 kilograms in comparison to the original aluminium wheels leads to a noticeable improvement in handling.
Thanks to the patented braiding technology, thyssenkrupp’s carbon wheels are unique, not only with regards to quality but also for their stunning optics. The seamlessly processed carbon fibres in the wheel lead to unbeaten damage tolerance and maximum lightweight design. With the carbon wheels being available for the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, riders of a total of five Honda models have the opportunity to equip their motorcycles with those carbon innovations. All wheels can be ordered through the known dealer network or the company’s website.
‘We are working across all brands and are continuously expanding our portfolio. It is undeniable that our braided carbon wheels are a perfect match for the new Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. I am convinced that the advantages in performance will become obvious for everybody riding the Fireblade equipped with our carbon wheels.’ explains CEO Dr Jens Werner.
