A motorcycle and a shortened form of 'fireblade'. The Honda Fireblade was introduced in the early 90s and dominated sports biking for almost a decade, only to be overtaken in 1998/99 by Yamaha's R1. Both machines are capable of going very fast.
I've just popped a virtuous wheelie on my 'blade', but soiled myself in the process.
