About the 2011-2012 Honda CB1000R

The Honda CB1000R instantly gained recognition for being a bike that proudly flaunts what it really is: a naked roadster that you can just climb on and instantly feel its presence on the road. The tachometer features an instant multi-segment readout of engine speed, displayed in a wide, sweeping bar that extends across the top of the display.

The CB1000R has exuded a legitimate bravado that not a lot of other machines can boast of. Its clean look perfectly complements the fuel-injected 998 cc four-cylinder engine that is full to the brim with power and performance. 

The front design is highlighted by a compact bikini cowl surrounding a multi-reflector headlight. The Mono-Backbone gravity die-cast (GDC) aluminum frame Honda decided to use on the CB1000R. Not only is it strong, rigid, and lightweight, but it also enhances the bike’s sharp and smooth handling.

Complementing the frame is a suspension system made up of a 43mm inverted HMAS cartridge-type front fork that’s as sturdy as it is responsive. The fork tubes in this setup can also be fully adjusted for preload, compression, and rebound damping, allowing riders to custom the bike’s riding performance depending on their preference.

The Honda CB1000R is built around a superbike-strong 998cc DOHC inline four engine that’s ideal for street riding, providing enough power and torque – 123 horsepower at an astounding 10,000 rpm and 73 pound-feet of torque at 7,500 rpm – to make for fast and smooth rides.
