Think of a fighter, standing in the ring. Boots, trunks, gloves—and plenty of muscle. That’s the Honda CB1000R, a machine that offers Superbike performance, a comfortable, do-it-all riding position, and sense of style that’s off the charts.
The formula is simple: We built a special chassis that puts the 998cc engine out front and center, and lets you sit more upright. The result is one of the most versatile open-class bikes the world has ever seen, as comfortable on a long trip as it is confident on the boulevard. When you need one bike that can do it all, and do it exceedingly well, the CB1000R is the machine you want in your corner.
Soul of a Superbike: The CB1000R is built around a superbike-strong 998cc DOHC inline-four engine 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.
Ripped, and Ready to Show It: When you’re as muscular as the CB1000R you want to show the world. 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. Get used to everyone else checking it out.
Rugged Chassis: 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 further refine the handling package.
