The airventcover (right side) in our unique design for the Honda CBR 1000 RR Fireblade 2017 blends into the motorcycle's overall appearance. In direct contact with the painted side panel, the original matte plastic airventcover does not really look quite valuable. The Ilmberger Carbon airventcover transfers the Blade´s looks back to its worthy overall apperance, specially in this frequent field of vision. As the part is made of Ilmbergers extremely stiff carbon fibres, it also gives the whole area more stability than does the OEM plastic part. Of course, the airventcover can also be mounted separate, so without Ilmbergers optional frame cover (article number RAR.015.CBR17.K).
This part is a direct replacement for the original component and contributes mainly to weight saving on the motorcycle (up to 70% less) and a higher stiffness of the parts. Like all of our carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current 'best of industry' practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave. As with all our carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.
