To celebrate Ian Hutchison’s awesome achievements at this year’s TT (and to commiserate John McGuinness’s misfortunes – OK, his 131.578mph lap record), Honda has come up with a pair of special edition Fireblades. If you need a recap, Hutchy won all five races at this year’s event – an achievement never recorded before. Er, John suffered a lot of mechanical maladies.
The Hutchy scheme is a pearly white number with an outline of the track painted on while the McGuinness rep is the black one with a white top, replicating the Morecombe man’s love of Guinness!
Both are signed by the riders. You can’t have the first ones as one, because Honda has given them to the men themselves (“It’s going straight in the living room.” Hutchy. “It’s going to join my collection.” McGuinness.
Priced at £1,000 above otr prices (so £11,725 or £12,375 for the ABS version), you can order one of these specials from Honda dealerships across the land. They are also available on Honda’s current zero percent finance deal. Call 0845 2008000 or head to www.honda.co.uk/motorcycles
