CB1000R for Sale at Virginia Honda in Virginia, QLD | Specifications and Review Information
An inline-four street-bike is truly a thing of beauty. It's all business, and you never get tired looking at it. Simply put, the Honda CB1000R is the best open-class naked street-fighter we've ever produced. It has cutting-edge Neo-Sports Cafe styling and a high-revving 998cc four-cylinder engine that's specially tuned for mid-range and top-end power. All in all, the CB1000R is light, powerful, responsive and an absolute blast to ride. So, get ready to get noticed, on our CB1000R.
Every athlete knows you have to breathe to perform. Compared to earlier engine designs in this class, the CB1000R gets higher valve lift, larger valves, larger diameter inlet ports, and new combustion-chamber shapes to improve gas flow and offer improved torque in midrange.
SLIPPER ASSIST CLUTCH
This innovative design hooks up tight to get all the CB1000R's power to the ground, yet still offers a light pull at the clutch lever. Plus, the slipper design helps mitigate wheel hop during aggressive downshifts and deceleration.
On a bike like this, the exhaust system can make a critical difference in power. And since it's so visible, it also makes a critical contribution to the machine's style. The CB1000R's four-into-one system boosts torque at 5,000 RPM and above, saves 10 pounds, and provides the CB1000R with a deeper, more raw exhaust note for added character.
FLANGELESS FUEL TANK
Details matter. Case in point: the CB1000R's fuel tank. We build it without a visible bottom flange. Sure, it takes a little more effort to manufacture, but you get a fuel tank with a clean, custom look that we think is worth it. Plus, the tank is slimmer for an even better fit and lighter feel thanks to its unique shape.
The CB1000R features a unique, single-sided swingarm. It's part of the bike's excellent handling character, but also contributes a great deal to the way this machine looks.
A bike's handlebar makes a huge difference in how you relate to your machine. We moved the CB650R's bar forward and changed the bend in the bar too. Plus, using a premium, tapered-section swaged bar gives you better front-end feedback.
STEEL BACKBONE CHASSIS
The CB1000R features a unique frame design. The main mono-backbone component is steel, and that joins up with split-tightening aluminium pivot plates. You get the basis for excellent handling along with lightweight design.
SHOWA FRONT SUSPENSION
Great handling and precise steering demand a premium front suspension. That's why the CB1000R uses a Showa Separate Function Front Fork Big Piston unit (SFF-BP). It offers both reduced weight, superior rigidity, and excellent overall performance. Plus, it offers adjustability for spring preload as well as rebound and compression damping.
POWERFUL INLINE FOUR ENGINE
The CB1000R's powerful 998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine uses an architecture and layout proven on Honda's Superbikes. Forged (not cast) pistons make it as strong as it is powerful.
