467 pounds, curb weight. Kind of porky. But if it really does have 143 hp (crank, no doubt), not bad.

I like the look, cuz it looks a lot like a 990 Super Duke!

Just saw this. Looks buch as hell :P

Looks nice, it's how the cb1000r was supposed to look like.

Though the specs look a bit meh for 2018:
  • CB1000R
  • 998cc inline four
  • 143.4bhp @ 10,500rpm
  • 830mm seat height
  • 212kg (wet)

I'm interested in what the 'aluminum bodywork' entails in the CB1KR+ model.

What a gorgeous bike. So what if the weight of it is a bit "porky", It's still going to haul enough ass for most of us who aren't professional riders or racers. I was originally lusting after a Yamaha FZ10, not anymore... I want this. My only thing I would majorly change is removal of that licence plate lower tail thing, whatever you call it, and get the plate under the seat somehow. I hope the suspension is a lot better than my old '04 919 and the price is competitive to the other nakeds out there.

16 litre tank I read on another site. switchable ride modes too. cool.

The front suspention is all in one fork, for "weight savings". Yeah right. Bad sign...... Better budget $1500+ to correct the suspention, if they're true to form. It will probably be rideable, unlike the original FZ9.

It is a good looking motorcycle. I'd leave the license plate thing alone. Put the license plate under the seat, and it's going to look like every other hack job, performed by a 20 something, hacker.

If you absolutely have to have a Honda, this, bike is the answer to your prayers. To the rest of us, it's just kind of interesting.

It looks like compression and rebound are in one fork and preload is in the other. It seems like a lot of bikes are moving this way. I guess the thought is that since the forks are tied together, does it really make sense that you adjust preload on both forks?

At the moment I think that tire hugger/licence plate holder is ugly. And will get uglier covered in chain fling off and road grime.

That is a bad sign, under-sprung and over-damped, the more things change...

really wondering what the pricing on this is going to be... Really hope its no more expensive than the fz-09...

For the 300 too... This might be the bike that my gf would start to learn on :P would be cool if they'd update the 600hornet too in this body style.

I re-read the Visor Down article. The dampening is one fork. My bad, sort of.

The Suzuki GSX-S 1000 gets raving reviews in the suspention and handling department. Comparisons are inevitable. The Suzuki isn't as sharp as the Honda, tho. This is the best looking bike they've made in years. Wouldn't it be cool if they did a Red White and Blue?

I have to quit looking at this thing.....

Not sure how much you guys keep up with new models but just fyi theres a fair amount of supersport bikes that use the same strategy in the forks, so I wouldn't hold that against it...

+1 to that


Though for the 300 sized version it seems there will be some competition from the Husqvarna Vitpilen 400. Looks great too imo:

It looks great. Still seems to suffer from partsbinitis though.

The exhaust would have to go. I dont find the rear fender as terrible as the ones that seem to come out a foot behind the tail.

Not sure Id sell my 919 for it though unless it gets totalled or something.

I wouldn't touch the exhaust. It's clean, quiet, and as far from the rider's ear as possible. Looks pretty cool, also.

I'd do brake lines and possibly suspention, only if needed.

And I still want red, white, and blue.

It hasn't even landed yet and it needs $1500 in suspension?!

What a ridiculous statement. Ran down many riders with "premium" suspensions on my stock FZ09. I'll let you in on a secret........it's the rider, not the bike. Knowing Honda it will be better then 90% of the riders.

Won't be FZ09 cheap, $10-$11K or more.

So that's the 2018 919?

Why does Honda do this? They stop making a bike, then bring it back under a different name and modern specs.

Cool, now I just have to wait 5 years for them to hit the used market at $3K

Or just resto-mod your current 919 to look more similar to that, granted you might not be able to get that 60bhp difference but might turn out cheaper over the 5 years... :P

I got a better idea, each of you guys go out and buy one (or two) ride them gently, upgrade everything that needs to be upgraded, then sell it to me for $3K. Problem solved

I look at it as my kids will need cheap transportation in college... If I buy one new now, by the time the kids head off to college, they will be dirt cheap, but I will know how this one was maintained.

Do you think the wife will buy that excuse? It's either that or convince her that 'she' needs this bike and should sell the magna to make room in the stable....

A new Honda that doesn't need major suspention work? That's possible. But given their track record...... not likely.

I drove my Son's 2 door V6 Honda Accord today. That is a wonderful car. But bland, omg that is a boring car. I hope that Honda manages to put a some character into that new 1000.

I️ always felt the V6 accords problem was with it being a modern FWD sedan in a dress. At least with older cars like old Capris and Mustangs, sure, they were built on cheap sedan platforms, but they were RWD.

First thing I would do is change the big baboon muff.
Then I would break her in fast.
Then I would wonder why I sold off both bikes I had a couple of years ago.

I'm guessing around 125. It's going to be a wheelie monster though. I suspect the suspension will be plenty good for anything except high level track use. I hope they don't charge too much for it.

Its a great looking machine.
120+hp is plenty enough for me.
Honda make their suspension "one size fits all". When I get one of these bikes it won't bother me to change a few things like suspension, pipes etc. I did with my Hornet.

WOW! For years I've felt Honda's been coming out with the fugliest bikes, but this is just so damn sexy! Hat's off to the designers. It's too early to judge the bike on anything other than looks at this point but it's really nice to see Honda take a big step in the right direction!

First thing to go is the exhaust.


And here is the dash:


Looks awesome. I should just sell my 9er and start saving up for this :P

Love the dash. Hate the exhaust.
I'll get one but I'll hang on to my 919. I'm going to put in a bigger front door and the CB1000 will be parked in the house!

The only reason I'd replace the exhaust is iif it would get rid of 15+ pounds. Put a Shorai battery in it, and lose another 5 pounds.

The exhaust looks fine to me. I have come to really appreciate quiet motorcycles. You won't come home smelling like a stinky old 919, with that bike and exhaust.
