2012 Honda CB1000R Features and Benefits

By | Nov 20, 2011

It’s been called a street fighter, a naked bike, a supersport bike in undercover clothing and more. But regardless of what riding niche the CB1000R may fill, it definitely embodies the classic Honda formula for high performance in an unfaired four-cylinder bike—and that’s a very good thing. Boasting clean, essentials-only styling, a fuel-injected four-cylinder 998cc powerplant tuned for loads of right-now power, single-sided swingarm with single-shock rear suspension, plus a wealth of street-worthy features that give it its own unique identity, the CB1000R stands tall as a high-performance motorcycle with an enduring design.

    I’m not crazy about the looks of this bike, but the performance will probably be brilliant.
