A pretentious, obese, blandmotorcycle for pretentious, bland people. Built by Honda in an attempt to counter firstly the FZR, then R1, however falls short. Easy to ride in a straight line. Easy for posing. Simply a bland motorcycle. Usually bought by people blind to marketing gimmics and campains (squids) and never taken around a corner in anger.
Owner: "Look at my fireblade. It's the best sportsbike on the PLANET!"
Other conversant: "Why?"
Owner: "Cause Honda says so"
