Honda Japan shows incredible carbon CB1000R

Gorgeous carbon custom CB1000R on Honda stand at Tokyo show

Carbon fibre Honda CB1000R

Tucked away at the edge of Honda’s stand was this super-stealth carbon CB1000R, built by Japanese composite-wizards, Magical Racing. The wheels are full-carbon lightweight chappies, including the sweet single-sided rear rim, with a BST carbon thin-spoked front hoop.

The bodywork is liberally replaced with the black stuff too with CF fender/hugger, rad guards, airbox plates and chainguard – and there’s even a set of carbon handlebars…

The exhaust is a Spec-A system from pipemeisters Yamamoto Racing, with a sweet golden-anodised silencer. And if we were lucky enough to be riding a CB1000R this season, we think we'd be steering our Googlebrowsers over to said firms and saving our pennies for some of this utterly audacious bolt-on sauce...
