I never saw the point of the Nearly Ready 750. Much heavier, slower and worse handling than the Fireblade of the day, yet was £30k to the Fireblades £6. I think most people had trouble seeing past the shine.

You couldn't see the point because you missed it completely :lol: :lol:
The NR 750 was an exercise by Honda to show what could be done without financial restraints.
The Fireblade is an example of the best available compromise :wink:

Full bore V-Max. Got one.

Kosinski edition FZR600. Got the only one in the country.

FZ750. Always fancied the first of the 5 valvers but very few left now.

So I got 2 of my 3 dream sickles.


Do You know what FZR mean? Four stroke Z... Racing?
