Superbike Performance. And A Style All Its Own.
Feast your eyes on the all-new Honda CB1000R. Superbike performance. A comfortable, do-it-all riding position, and style that's off the charts.
The CB1000R is a new take on a timeless concept. A no-nonsense superbike that's not afraid to show off its muscle where everyone can see it. We took a CBR1000RR powerplant—and retuned it for even more midrange power and torque. Then we built a special chassis that puts the engine out front and center, and that also lets you sit more upright. The result is one of the most versatile open-class bikes the world has ever seen. And also one of the best looking.
But don't wait to decide. Let your dealer know you want one, because availability will be limited for this model! Available Spring 2011.
Superbike Power: The new CB1000R is built around a superbike-strong 998cc DOHC inline four engine. Basically, we took a CBR1000RR powerplant and retuned it to deliver a bare-knuckle blast of power that's perfect for street riding, with plenty of torque and power on tap. Since it's a four cylinder, it's plenty smooth for longer rides too.
When You've Got It, Flaunt It: The new CB1000R has nothing to hide. On the contrary, it'd be a shame to cover up that awesome engine, so we've put it out front and center so you and everyone else can enjoy it. Then our designers gave the CB1000R just enough styling touches (side radiator shrouds, fork-mounted cowl fairing, cast aluminum four-spoke wheels) to really set it apart. Check out the result for yourself.
Easy to Handle: The CB1000R offers exceptional handling, thanks to a Gravity Die Cast mono-backbone aluminum chassis that's light and strong, a fully-adjustable inverted fork, and adjustable Pro Link® rear suspension with a single-sided swing arm.
