The importance of brakes can’t be downplayed and that’s even more so in the case of a Superbike. While the Fireblade might be technologically behind its rival on most aspects, braking is where it doesn’t quite compromise. The motorcycle features dual 320mm discs at front and a single 220mm disc at the rear along with 4-piston calliper and single-piston calliper respectively. Brakes are of sintered type that last long. Lastly, electronically Combined ABS is one of the best anti-lock systems that prevent wheel lockup while electronically (no wires) distributing braking force as per the requirements at both ends.
The company claimed mileage is 18 kilometres per litre. This, combined with the 17.5 litres fuel tank is capable of delivering around 300 kms range on a full tank which isn’t bad for a Superbike.
