2008 Honda CBF1000

Every time you get on a bike, it’s a personal challenge. Doesn’t matter where you’re going or who’s watching. All you care about is that your bike is as ready and as able as you are. The CBF1000 is a serious machine. It’s as at home on the mountain switchbacks right across Europe as it is on the most out-of-the-way-how-did-I-get-hereboy- am-I-loving-this knotted, twisted, gnarled road you found one lucky Sunday afternoon. This bike is only available at Honda Powerhouse Dealers. And it’s ready to take on almost any adventure that lies around the corner or is plotted in your GPS.

Kick-start your adventure. Honda is bringing a new breed of adventure to Canada. With the arrival of the Varadero and the CBF1000 from Europe, the road of possibility has just opened. Places you only dreamed about riding are now within your reach. And you suddenly have the perfect excuse to bond with old friends. Honda has the adventure bikes, the gear and accessories, and even some epic recommendations of places to point your compass. All you need to do is get yourself in gear and get out there.

CBF1000 is only available at HONDA POWERHOUSE DEALERS (see below) and only in Canada.

 

Every time you get on a bike, it’s a personal challenge. Doesn’t matter where you’re going or who’s watching. All you care about is that your bike is as ready and as able as you are. The CBF1000 is a serious machine. It’s as at home on the mountain switchbacks right across Europe as it is on the most out-of-the-way-how-did-I-get-hereboy-am-I-loving-this knotted, twisted, gnarled road you found one lucky Sunday afternoon. This bike is only available at Honda Powerhouse Dealers. And it’s ready to take on almost any adventure that lies around the corner or is plotted in your GPS.


The feel. Every adventure brings new discoveries. New people to meet, new vistas to marvel at, new roads to enjoy. And every adventure places new demands on you and your motorcycle. The CBF1000 is designed for precisely these changing conditions, thanks in part to its clever three-position height-adjustable seat and its adjustable windscreen. Being able to raise or lower the seat through a range of 15 mm lets you tailor the CBF1000’s ergonomics to suit you to a T, resulting in better comfort and better control over all sorts of road surfaces. And because a long ride can sometimes mean a new weather system around almost every corner, you’ll love the CBF1000’s sleek but protective half-fairing, and the windscreen that adjusts up for better wind, rain (and bug!) protection, and down for better cooling. Swing a leg over the CBF1000, settle in to the spacious seat, reach for the wide and upright handlebar, and notice how natural and confidenceinspiring the ergonomics feel. Then ask yourself: Where do I want to go today?

 

The ride. One look tells you that this bike means business. The styling is bare-bones functional, with
nothing getting in the way of the potent-looking engine – eye candy for the adventure rider. And the ride is just as effective, inspiring confidence even when the road doesn’t. Specially calibrated suspension provides the smooth ride and sporty control you want for open highways and twisty back roads, but it also goes a big step further by providing uncanny comfort and stability when the road resembles a quilt of patchwork asphalt.

 

The power. Plenty, thanks to 998 cc of fuel-injected get-up-and-go. The 16-valve inline-four engine is tuned for a wide spread of power that provides both abundant torque down low for navigating tricky terrain, and effortless topend performance for when the twisty road opens up into a straight run toward the day’s end. Fuel-injection not only ensures crisp throttle response and reduced emissions, it
also automatically adjusts the fuel/air mixture for changes in altitude and temperature. No fiddling, no fuss, no worry. So when you’re somewhere off the edge of your map – or just eager to get to the cottage with no hassles – you can be confident that your CBF1000 won’t let you down.

 

Built for adventure. When you’re heading for a place that’s too small for any map, you want to have full confidence that your bike has the quality, reliability and performance to get you there and back, no sweat. And that’s why you ride a Honda. You can see it in the design and construction of every component, in the user-friendly controls that inspire riding confidence and in the flawless fit and finish. Like all Hondas, these bikes are built with care, and built to go the distance. So go ahead and enjoy the ride wherever the road leads. This Honda is up to the challenge.



Built for safety. Because you can never be sure what surprise you might find around the next corner, both the Varadero and the CBF1000 are equipped with anti-lock brakes linked via Honda’s Combined Braking System. By distributing balanced braking force whenever the brakes are applied, the Combined Braking System helps you stop quickly and in control. And with ABS, you can apply the brakes to the limit of available traction – even on wet or loose surfaces – with the confidence that the wheels won’t lock up. And when you have confidence in your motorcycle, your next adventure is limited only by your imagination.
