Externally the three pictured motorcycles look quite similar. But if one look more carefully and at the performance, then you can see the huge differences. The first two are series machines in Repsol trim. The Fireblade does not have to the CBR 125 only according to the displacement the superior performance, but is still a lot stronger. This also shows the speed level which in fact should be higher in the small one-cylinder.
Particularly interesting is the HRC, which by the way means Honda Racing Corporation. Here is to see the preliminary final product of a racing machine development that has got the GP World Championship until 2003 without interruption for nine years. Only by changing therider Valentino Rossi the title fell to Yamaha. This shows how close the racing bikes of the top league are together in terms of performance.
With power not only the delivered maximum is meant. On the contrary is relinquished on performance especially in the lower speed range if it would interfere their consistent development. Although the races usually take less than an hour, are necessary so many curves and accelerations, that the driver apparently does not have always the guaranteed concentration to operate the throttle smooth and adequate. So here's an electronic help, because in today's racing engines in the 1000 class extends a thrust in unfavorable position for a fall.
So it is often available more power as needed. At te HRC 211 V is resonsible for this a real V5, which you probably must still looking for else in the world. Thereby 3 cylinder of a inclined tansverse series bring more highly welcome weight on the front axle and two are slightly inclined backwards. Such as much more often in motorcycles, the ignition distance is not uniform. This would require each piston to have its own crank mechanism. Of course, there would be interesting other components, such as the suspension of the rear wing, but the engine remains in its unusual design the main attraction. This seems so strong, that with regularity a civilian version of this machine is requested and is refused as such.
