The naked model Honda CB1000R was first introduced in November 2007 at the Milan Bike Show as a replacement for the obsolete model Honda CB900F Hornet.
The model was based on the engine from the sports version Honda CBR1000RR (2007), which was reconfigured and derated to increase traction at low and medium revs. As a result, the motor began to produce about 125 hp. power and 99 Nm of torque, available already at 7,750 rpm. The styling shares visual features with the 2007 Honda Hornet 600.
Comparing the Honda CB1000R with the Honda CBF 1000, which also used the engine from the liter Fireblade, it should be noted that on the Honda CB1000R it is more forced, has 30% more power and a pronounced sporty character.
It is also important that despite the similarity of the names of the Honda CB1000R and Honda CB1000SF, these motorcycles have nothing in common. The Honda CB1000 Super Four is a classic motorcycle manufactured by the company from 1992 to 1997 and is the predecessor to Honda CB1300SF.
Key features of the Honda CB1000R include an aluminum frame, a cantilever rear swingarm, fully adjustable sports suspensions, a 6-speed gearbox and powerful brakes with an optional combined ABS system.
In 2018, the Honda CB1000R model has undergone a serious restyling, having received a new look, a reconfigured engine (maximum power increased to 145 hp), an electronic throttle, ABS in the basic equipment (2-channel, without a combined brake), a traction control system ( Honda Selectable Torque Control) with three operating modes (controls such parameters as engine power, engine braking, torque transmission to the rear wheel) and a wider rear wheel (190 mm).
