The exeptions are:
Updated for 2001, the Blackbird becomes more of a colorful beast with a selection of new colors, well, just silver really and a black frame! Realizing that they have been spanked on the performance front by the Hayabusa and ZX-12R, Honda are consolidating the Blackbird's position by focusing the bike more towards fast touring that sporty touring. The screen on the 2001 bike is taller to allow for longer, wind free trips at high speeds. That'll be motorways then. A new set of clocks has the tacho mounted in the center of the panel with LCD readouts either side. A styling hint taken from fighter planes maybeâ€¦. To keep ahead of impending emissions laws the Blacky gets cats only seen on the German and Austrian bikes before. Honda claims that the new catalyst can reduce emissions without reducing the awesome power of the 1100cc missile. To achieve this the exhaust system has been tweaked, and the result is not just an equal amount of power, despite the cats, but an extra 11bhp.
Mike Via's Super Blackbird has reached the 100,000 miles mark! Needless to say that it was without any big problems! Mike has traded his '97 Blackbird (with 104,763 miles on the clock) in for a 2003 Blackbird.
This is Blackbird with serial number 124. The owner Paul Federczyk (USA) wanted to know who has a lower serial number. On September 12, 2011 I received an e-mail from Cor Waning (NL) that he does have a lower serial number: M00051. His Blackbird is from September 1996.

Kimmo Koskenniemi from Finland send the results of the Dynorun of a '99 Blackbird and a photo of the test. First the results of the stock Blackbird. The difference is clear when you compared the stock XX and with Yoshimura and Dynokit

Kimmo is owner of Bikefox and is a Dyno tuner since 1991. At the moment (2016) he rides a Suzuki GXR1000 K8 ( 200 hp at rear tyre, about 240 hp at ram air engine by teoretic and 175 kg dry weight, Yoshi enginemanagement, Kit pipe, cams head port by Bikefox etc...).
