2014 Honda CB1000R Review
2014 Honda CB1000R on Totalmotorcycle.com
Think of a fighter, standing in the ring. Boots, trunks, gloves and plenty of muscle. That’s the Honda CB1000R, a machine that offers Superbike performance, a comfortable, do-it-all riding position and sense of style that’s off the charts.
The formula is simple: we built a special chassis that puts the 998cc engine out front and center, allowing you to 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 lean, mean and muscular CB1000R dares you to experience the best Naked riding experience of your life. Packing the punch of full-blooded litre-class Super Sports, its compact RR-derived engine delivers awesome power with an exciting focus on low-to-midrange torque. Its styling is just as dynamic as its performance; a crouching, feline profile is adorned with eye-catching details that highlight its cutting-edge technology. Its lightweight and rigid cast aluminium frame holds together a chassis comprised of top Super Sports-class suspension, wheels and brakes that contribute to nimble handling and quick, easy control. A Combined-ABS version is also available, for the smoothest, most confidence-inspiring braking in all situations. The seat is narrow yet comfortable and the suspension is adjustable for a tailor-made ride, making the CB1000R an attractive option for every kind of ride, from weekday commuting to weekend blasts along twisty roads beyond the city limits.
Soul Of A Superbike.
The CB1000R is built around a superbike-strong 998cc DOHC inline-four engine that’s perfect for street riding, with plenty of torque and power on tap. Since it’s a four-cylinder, it’s plenty smooth for longer rides too.
Ripped, And Ready To Show It.
When you’re as muscular as the CB1000R, you want to show the world. It’d be a shame to cover up that awesome engine, so we’ve put it out front and center so you and everyone else can enjoy it. Then our designers gave the CB1000R just enough styling touches (side radiator shrouds, fork-mounted cowl fairing, cast-aluminum four-spoke wheels) to really set it apart. Get used to everyone else checking it out.
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 swingarm further refine the handling package.
2014 Honda CB1000R Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Timeless Design. Tons Of Innovation.
The CB1000R is a perfect example of Honda innovation. Combining power, light weight and refined, responsive handling with its good looks, it’s equally at home on a sportbike ride, a weekend-long getaway or a boulevard prowl.
2014 Honda CB1000R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
CB1000R’s high-tech, all-digital instrument display features tachometer, plus LCD readouts for speedometer, coolant temperature, odometer, two tripmeters and a clock, mpg and average fuel consumption.
Adjustable Brake and Clutch Levers
CB1000R’s adjustable brake and clutch levers let you fine-tune for the riding environment and tailor-fit the controls to your riding style.
Fully Adjustable 43mm Inverted Fork
A bike as powerful as the new CB1000R needs top-notch suspension components. That’s why we gave it a stout, large-diameter 43mm inverted fork that’s fully adjustable. And it’s also one of the reasons why the CB1000R handles so well.
LED Position Light
Uniquely styled, the LED Position Light is a compelling design feature that shows everyone that this is not any ordinary motorcycle. It’s a Honda.
Radial Front-Brake Calipers
The CB1000R’s radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers are stiffer for better brake feel and performance. Each caliper uses four pistons that squeeze lightweight 310mm floating discs for exceptional stopping power.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
The CB1000R’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) ensures crisp throttle response and both low- and high-rpm performance. In addition, there’s no choke to mess with, and the CB1000R runs perfectly at all altitudes and temperatures, even on cold mornings.
Looks great, sounds great and helps increase performance—how’s that for a win-win-win situation? The four-into-one header with its flowing pipes pays homage to classic Honda inline-fours of the 1970s like the CB400 Supersport. Some things just never go out of style.
998cc DOHC Engine
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.
Gravity Die-Cast Aluminum Mono-Backbone Frame
Gravity die cast technology gives the CB1000R a chassis that’s strong but light. The single backbone architecture links the steering head to the swingarm pivot, but without any frame spars to interrupt the CB1000R’s lines.
Proven on Honda’s endurance racebikes, the CB1000R’s single-sided swingarm not only looks awesome, but makes rear-wheel maintenance easier as well.
The CB1000R’s lowboy muffler not only looks cool and sounds great, but it also offers a handling advantage by moving the silencer lower and closer to the bike’s center of mass.
