A German magazine reported that the all-new 2020 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade will debut in October 2019.If what Speedweek magazinesaid was true, the bike will be introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show instead of at EICMA in November.Lending credibility to the rumour is rider Alvaro Bautista purportedly signing a two-year deal to ride for the HRC factory team in WorldSBK from 2020. There was “news” that the bike he will ride is the all-new CBR1000RR.The Honda CBR1000RR is the best-handling and easiest to ride superbike we’ve tested thus far but the current model is lacking in top-end horsepower, at least on paper, anyway. However, superbike buyers are always looking at the specs sheets and the CBR’s 189 hp “isn’t enough” when compared to its peers.As such, the new ‘Blade may have the most powerful naturally-aspirated roadgoing inline-Four.It may also feature the “active aerodynamics” shown in a patent filing. The system features ECU-controlled winglets in addition to “aerobodies” seen in MotoGP.The news should bode well for the WorldSBK team, as well. The riders are at the deep end of the field, finding themselves outgunned and unable to mount any serious challenge to the top runners.Honda and CBR1000RR Fireblade fans will likely rejoice at the news too.–Ads– The date puts it at the Tokyo Motor Show, instead of EICMA.center_img The new bike may prove to be the world-beater in WorldSBK.last_img read more

Exclusive: Berbatov with a strong comment on the historic match for…

first_imgBulgarian football legend Dimitar Berbatov gave an exclusive interview to, in which he commented on the draw in the Europa League. A little earlier today, fate ordered in a match of the second qualifying round of the tournament Lokomotiv Plovdiv to meet at “Lauta” not anyone, but the English grand Tottenham, and from we looked for perhaps the most suitable interlocutor on the topic.Hello, Mr. Berbatov. In the end, fate determined Jose Mourinho and company to come to their feet in Plovdiv, what are your thoughts after the draw?– This is good news for Bulgarian football in general, especially for Lokomotiv Plovdiv, because they will have the opportunity to compete with a very good European team. We know what kind of players there are, we know who is the coach of Tottenham, so it will be a difficult test for Lokomotiv Plovdiv. Tottenham is the favorite, it’s clear, but we all love surprises, so you can get one in this case, you know.The English are preparing for an expressive victory, and the Bulgarians are happy to meet a team of this caliber. How big do you think is the gap between domestic and foreign football?– The gap is there and it is big, we all know. Tottenham fans are joking because they come to Bulgaria and think it will be easy for them, but in fact it will not be so. At least I hope that the boys of Lokomotiv Plovdiv will make Tottenham’s life difficult, so that watching the match will be interesting to me. Not to be a one-sided match in which one attacks, the other defends. Lokomotiv Plovdiv has nothing to lose, and who knows, someone may deserve a surprising transfer abroad in this way. If you show a good game, they will see you.However, everything is decided in one meeting, so miracles are not excluded. Do you think Lokomotiv Plovdiv is capable of a small football miracle?– Why not? Of course, Tottenham are clear favorites in the match and there will probably be winners in the end, but one should never stop hoping. I wish success to Lokomotiv Plovdiv. I will watch the match, it will be difficult for them, especially without an audience. This is the biggest disadvantage in this case. This reduced the chance they had if there was an audience, as it would be an interesting experience for everyone there. But this is football, let’s not forget. No matter how minimal the chances are, there are some. And while there are them, one must believe! Which side will you watch the match, which team will you support?“My past with Tottenham is there and it can’t be erased.” In my time, they have won the only trophy so far. I have said many times that it is high time they won something. Whatever. Their goal is to win this tournament. I follow them and wish them success. On the other hand, as a Bulgarian, I keep my fingers crossed for the Bulgarian teams to perform well, so I will watch and enjoy. I hope they have prepared the field in perfect condition – so that the ball can go, not bounce. Let’s hope we witness a good match and see what will happen in the end, we keep our fingers crossed. Maybe Loko Plovdiv will surprise everyone, no matter how small the probability.
