A Winning Combination
Inspired by retro industrial minimalism, the new CB1000R boasts superbike-derived performance framed by sculpted lines and contoured metal. The result is a distinctive motorcycle that is part sports naked, part Café Racer, and 100 per cent motorcycling pleasure.
Underlining the new CB1000R’s chiselled and muscular exterior is a precision-engineered 998CC, four-cylinder powerplant that delivers significantly more power and torque. A 12kg weight reduction brings substantial power-to-weight ratio gains. Higher-spec Showa suspension, ABS radial mount front brakes, slipper clutch, and Honda Selectable Torque Control, help ensure power can be used and enjoyed safely.
Premium metal finishing is visible everywhere on the CB1000R – burnished aluminium radiator shroud and airbox cover, machined engine cases, cylinder head and sprocket hub, and not forgetting the lustrous painted steel fuel tank.
Tuned for the Streets
Compared to its predecessor, the new CB1000R generates 16 per cent more peak power and five per cent more torque across the mid-range. Lowered gear ratios offer quicker acceleration - harder than the CBR1000RR up to 130km/h.
Less is More
Weighing in at 212kg wet, the CB1000R is 12kg lighter and smaller than the previous model. Headlight overhang has been reduced by 90mm while the swingarm-mounted mudguard unit allows shorter tail unit. Tapered handlebars allow for a more comfy ride.
