Distinctive, lean street bikes that bring attitude and minimalistic styling to the street. This is an impressive and stunning new range from Honda Motorcycles as they've stripped them back even closer to the bone. Fuelled with big-bike attitude, just a quick glance catches the eye with burnished metal finishes that reflect the tradition of a hard-charging Café Racer.
This early-entry motorcycle – a tenacious sibling of the CB1000R – really makes a statement with its alloy radiator shroud, hugging sump guard and all-black engine. A new tubular frame and tough-looking 41mm upside-down forks are topped with a state-of-the-art LCD instrument panel; headlight, taillight and indicators are all LED for extra brightness.
It’s an aggressive, bold new look that contrasts brushed alloy radiator shrouds with a blacked-out engine and an underslung, upswept exhaust. The all-new steel tubular frame and stout-looking, 41mm upside down front forks, provide agile handling as well as character. On the lighter side, headlight, taillight and indicators are all LED; this bike is made to be seen and stand out everywhere.
Compact and muscular, just a quick glance catches the eye with burnished metal finishes that reflect the tradition of a hard-charging Café Racer. It’s a powerful beast that handles, and performs, beautifully. Say hello, if you dare, to the new CB1000R.
