Vilas - Honda have produced lots of homologation specials stuffed with expensive materials to boost the sales of the base models by winning production and SBK races. It was funny when the very much cheaper GPz900R trashed their homolgation special CBR1100R the year it came out. The cost of modifying a stock Honda to SBK levels is much greater compared to other manufacturers because, as I said before, they have a habit of making everything only just good enough for the average rider in average road conditions. I don't expect to have brake fade on a supposed sports bike like the Fireblade, and I didn't on the contemporary Yamaha and Kawasaki competition.
