FIREBLADE TO TAKE WORLD SUPERBIKE BOW IN 2004

The all-new CBR1000RR Fireblade will make its debut in the 2004 World Superbike championship.

Ten Kate Honda?s recently-crowned World Supersport champion, Chris Vermeulen will ride the new four-cylinder 1000cc machine in the 2004 World Superbike series.

"The new Fireblade machine is made for racing, with its cassette-style gearbox, electronic steering damper and generic looks from the RC211V," said Ten Kate Honda team owner, Gerrit ten Kate.

Honda marks its return to the World Superbike series following a year?s absence. In its last campaign, Honda won the 2002 World Superbike crown with Colin Edwards, aboard the 999cc SP-2 machine.

Vermeulen said: "It's fantastic to get the chance to move into World Superbike. It's always been my dream to be able to move from World Supersport to World Superbike but to do it as a champion is a special feeling."
