Coming on Friday: We ride the Honda CB1000R

Honda's new CB1000R thraped to an inch of its weighty life

On Friday in Spain, Visordown will hopefully be not getting wet at the launch of Honda's fruity CB1000 in that there Spain.

Freshly conceived from the wheels-up, the CB1000R has been designed to be exciting to ride – and fully capable of chasing much more focused machinery down on a twisting back road - while still being a relaxed and a big pile of fun too. 

With 143bhp on tap, it should pass the test of proper hooligans while also floating down to the pub on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Check back soon to see what we think.


This sounds and sort of looks like an alternative to the r1200r rather than the super nakeds such as s1000r - big bike, classic layout and indeed (updated) looks. Hope it's a good all-rounder, suspect it won't sell.
