2016 Honda CB1000R Review
2016 Honda CB1000R on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
The Beauty of Simplicity…
The Honda CB1000R is the kind of motorcycle that believes in rolling up its sleeves and getting the job done. No excuses, hardly any bodywork, its chassis and engine are out front and center for the whole world to see. And that’s exactly the way a whole brand of riders like it. Because with a CB1000R, nothing gets between you and your connection with the machine you’re riding. Its clean, essentials-only layout perfectly frames a fuel-injected four-cylinder 998cc engine that’s overflowing with loads of right-now power. The unique chassis incorporates a single-sided swingarm with a high performance single-shock rear suspension that helps make this bike stand out as well as perform. Some might call it a naked bike. Some might say it’s an open-class street fighter. We just think it’s an awesome motorcycle for whose who like their bikes served straight up.
The Heart of the Matter
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.
A Solid Foundation
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 swing arm further refine the handling package.
Cut Good Looks
It’d be a shame to cover up an engine like the CB1000R’s, 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. Check it out—everyone else will.
2016 Honda CB1000R www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Great Design Is Timeless.
The CB1000R offers Superbike performance; a comfortable, do-it-all riding position; and sense of style that’s off the charts. The result is one of the most versatile open-class bikes the world has ever seen. 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.
2016 Honda CB1000R www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
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.
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.
Fully Adjustable 43mm Inverted Fork
A bike as powerful as the 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.
All Digital Instrumentation
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.
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.
PGM-FI Fuel Injection
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.
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.
