Honda CB1000R 2013 Model Coming To Our Shores
The stunning CB1000R packs exhilarating litre-class Super Sports Performance into a Compact and Muscular Looking form that Looks Fast even Standing still. It delivers Breathtaking Acceleration, Light, Responsive handling and Invigorating Thrills at every Twist of its Throttle.
Honda 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. The CB1000R uses a 998cc inline-four engine based on a previous generation CBR1000RR, but is tuned to produce more torque and horsepower in the midrange and bottom end—the perfect combination for a machine like this.
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.
