CB1000R Overview

The world of litre-class superbikes changes constantly. The competition on the track is just as fierce as it is for market share. The rate at which tech developed on the race track is transferred to the bikes on the road is very rapid. What the company does with that bike, however, is another matter altogether. This is possibly why we in Malaysia are yet to get new for 2017 Honda CBR1000RR in the country. Instead we have to manage with the CBR that was launched in 2012. Without a hint of exaggeration it can be said that superbike technology has gone through a sea change in this time. The new Honda CBR1000RR does come with a lot of upgrades that bridge the technology gape from before. But the one we get here is still the old one. While being old, it is as good a superbike as they come and delivers a purity of performance like no other. Honda sells it with and without ABS at prices starting at around Php 140000. Also vying for the segment are the newer and cheaper Kawasaki ZX-10R and BMW S1000RR.

Honda CB1000R Design

This is the 12th generation of the CBR1000RR and carries much the same styling introduced in the 2008 version. It is that same friendly face in the front with the twin multi-reflector headlight setup flanking the high clear windshield. The side panels are clean with no unnecessary vents and slashes. Curves dominate the side view that make the bike look comfortable. The stubby flat exhaust gives the bike some clean undisturbed lines. This restrained approach to styling is characteristically Honda and gives it a race replica feel that is not too overly aggressive. Whether you appreciate it or not is another matter. The new design is a more aggressive looking machine that makes the old bike look outdated. The bike is also very compact with dimensions of 2077 mm (L) X 685 mm (W) X 1135 mm (H) and a wheelbase of 1407 mm. 130 mm of ground clearance give it some practicality. The bike rides on 17” 12 spoke cast aluminum wheels with 120/70 front and 190/50n rear tires. Instrumentation uses a highly customizable multi-functional LCD digital display that shows everything from trip meter and lap timer to coolant temperature and shift and gear position indicators. Honda provides it in three different color choices- Pearl Sunbeam White, Victory Red and Graphite Black.

CB1000R Ride & Handling

The front gets a 43 mm Showa inverted front fork with preload, compression and rebound adjustment and 120 mm stroke length. The rear gets a Unit Pro-Link with gas-charged HMAS damper featuring 10-step preload and stepless compression and rebound damping adjustment with 138.2 mm stroke. Additionally it uses a balance free rear cushion with preload, compression and rebound adjustment and 62 mm stroke length. The chassis is a four piece twin spar aluminum frame that centralizes the bike’s 211 kg mass for better handling. The gull wing swingarm is longer improved traction and better feedback. Make no mistake the bike is indeed a very good track weapon. It is the closest thing to a race replica of the RC212V for the road. Without the electronic wizardry it is also probably the last refuge for anyone who wants a rawer experience on the track. The 820 mm high seat makes for some tiptoeing but the riding position with lowered clip on handlebars is extremely race focused. The second generation Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) enhances stability at every speed by optimizing the steering angle changes.

Honda CB1000R Engine & Fuel Consumption

A decent 131 kW of peak power is produced by the bike’s 16 valve DOHC inline four engine at 12000 rpm. The torque figure is equally encouraging at 112 Nm produced at 8500 rpm. The engine is liquid cooled and uses a Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection system for smoother fuel delivery. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed transmission and a wet multi-plate clutch. It also comes equipped with the same slipper clutch as in the RC212V Moto GP racer. Apart from ensuring smooth gear shifting and a light lever feel, this also reduces engine back-torque transmitted to the rear wheel when down shifting along with increasing chassis stability under deceleration and upon entering corners. As expected the engine is refined with no vibrations. The bike also comes with a large 17.7 L fuel tank and delivers up to 18 km/L of fuel economy. All this might sound very encouraging but then the bike lacks a lot in terms of techno wizardry that has come to be expected at this price and performance range. There are no power modes, quick shifter or traction control.

CB1000R Braking & Safety

The front gets dual 320 mm dual discs with 4 piston calipers while the rear gets a single 220 mm disc with a single piston caliper. However the cake is taken by the combined ABS system that continuously optimizes and distributes the brake force between the front and rear for best braking performance at any speeds.

Honda CB1000R Verdict

The Honda CBR1000RR is a very capable superbike that comes with a track focused attitude and not much else. It looks outdated and is lacking in technology. This however could work in favor of purists that do not like the interference of electronic nannies. The rest of us would have to wait for the new CBR1000RR to make it into Malaysia.

    Aswab Jan 11, 2022 for Honda CB1000R

    My neighbor has a Honda CB1000R and I love the styling of the bike. It’s an absolute looker no doubt. Honda has struck the perfect balance between classic and new with this bike. It does look a bit front heavy. The riding position is a mix between what you get on a super-naked bike and a daily commuter. The bike Read More

    Hadees Oct 31, 2021 for Honda CB1000R

    This Honda CB 1000 R's riding quality is just incredible. I've never ridden a more comfortable bike in my life. The two-main wheeler's characteristic is its small size. This also provides improved wind protection. The revised gasoline tank provides a solid grip for the knees. As a result of the bike's comfortable seating posture, riding it for an extended period Read More

    I love riding exotic bikes, especially from categories that look different. While most people prefer riding a Ninja or a Yamaha in the litre-class segment, I chose the scrambler. Now, for a scrambler, this Honda CB1000R is really powerful. On paper, it is as powerful as a Kawasaki Ninja 1000 or Z1000. But there is a catch here. Being a Read More

    I have always had a little extra space in my heart for retro-styled bikes, while Honda being my all-time favorite brand. Hence, when I came across Honda CB1000R, I couldn’t hold myself back and purchased it for myself. Either way, I had been thinking of upgrading my bike but was really confused between the variety of options available. Finding this Read More

    I have always fancy purchasing retro bikes and then my eyes feel on this marvellous design. Now, if you are thinking that this old school model has nothing to do with performance then probably you are mistaken. Don’t judge it completely by its look as comes with a robust engine which many sports bikes even fail to match. On the Read More

    Adiputera Dec 06, 2020 for Honda CB1000R

    I wanted a powerful naked superbike as I am not a huge fan of super sports due to the aggressive riding position on offer. Moreover, I have ridden a lot of inline-four bikes but the amount of refinement Honda CB1000R has to offer is on another level. The USD forks offer amazing stability at higher speeds and also offer confidence Read More

    If the bikes superfast speedy performance is one of your topmost priorities while selecting bikes, then cb1000r-2018 will compliment your choice in best way. The bike is a high performance bike and handling of the bike is of superior quality as well. I realized the strength of the bike the first day I got to see it in their showroom. Read More
