Caterham Fireblade carb or EFI?

Sorry. This may sound like a silly question, but I can't seem to find the answer.

I'm looking to purchase a Caterham Fireblade in the near future, and I'm not able to find out if its fuel injected or carb'ed machine?

Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks!

I believe that the Fireblade name refers to the Honda CBR919RR motor. If so, it's carb'd.

Thanks for the reply.

Carb'ed. That's what I first thought...until I found out the Caterham Fireblade was made from 2001-2004...and the CBR Fireblade 900 (it was actually 919cc) was disco'ed in 99. In 2000 the Fireblade 929cc motor replaced it but I think they still called it the Fireblade 900. That year it came with EFI.

I'm wondering how many of these Caterham fireblade models are floating around? Wonder if any ever made it to Canada or USA?

Do modern motorcycle carbs handle lateral G forces? This was a problem in FSAE way, way back.

Nice. Wonder where it ended up and how much $$$ it went for?

Probably didnt have a title, so no chance of getting it into Canada anyhow :-)

Sounds like a super fun machine though. If anyone ever finds one in North America, POST!
