Cb1300f Abs

Does anyone know if they are going to bring the CB1300F ABS to the U.S.

I don't think you'd be as happy as you think. I can't say that I've ever ridden one, but it is one big pig of a bike. Plus, it only manages 114 from a 1300cc lump. That sounds pretty wheezy to me. The motor isn't near as pretty as the 919 motor, either.

It's too big to be the flickable, backroad burner the 919 is, but it's too nekkid to make a good tourer. I dunno about everybody else, but I don't think I'd want one.

You can tour naked, you just can't be shy. I want this really bad though:

Okay, threadjack off. The CBs are standards from way back and would probably come with a 919 "bigger thrill" attitude. I hate and enjoy this time of year. The suspense at what could be is tough.

I have owned 2 CB1300's, both Black and my dad has one now (with bikini fairing). Don't underestimate this bike. It has a lot of shove/torque and is creamy smooth to ride. Doesn't feel heavy to move around either. The torque is massive on this bike. Varaderos are very tall, I sat on one at my dealers and both feet were about 6" off the ground! I am 5'8 tall.

i totally agree, it seems like it would just be a heavier 919 with terrible handling

I think you need to read my post, I speak with experience having owned 2 and my dad has one now. They are nearly as easy as the 900 but with more grunt lower down the revs, very very smooth and very comfortable. They carry there weight well, have a low seat and have more torque than most bikes. I would have bought another 3 months ago but couldn't afford it so bought a 900 Hornet instead (919) as I have also owned a 919 back in 2003 and like it. If I had the extra £1500 I would have bought another CB1300.

Don't just look at the stats and jump to conclusions. Like most bikes you have to ride them to make an opinion.

These weigh around 450Kgs (about 1000lbs in your language) for a light one so that's why the 0-60 secs times are so good! 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds. They handle like a go-kart too. Autocar magazine reckon it's quicker than a Ford GT

thread resurection here.



someone tell me why the bikini fairing for the 1300 won't fit easily on my 919.


There is a pretty good chance I will be riding to winnipeg, manitoba next june. That is about 1800 miles . and that bikini fairing seems like it would make my trip that much nicer.


also... where in the hell would I get one and not spend 500 bucks or more?

I think you'd have to replace the light as well - have you considered the fairing off the cb1000f?
Don't know where'd you get an OEM one cheap

It looks like you'd have to replace more than the headlight. Look at the 360/cockpit view of the CBF1000 on this site: http://www.honda.co.uk/motorcycles . The whole instrument cluster would need to go as well.

Has anyone tried to fit this on a 919/Hornet?

I really like the look of your Dad's bike. I especially like the fairing,

The 919 has enough engine for me, but if I wanted more, I wouldn't be afraid of the 13 because of weight. My `81 900F weighed something like 525 dry. It wore bias ply tires and was considered a very good handler in it's day. I sit on an old 900F or an old 750F from time to time and am still impressed how light they feel.

arghh. it is so damn frustrating not being able to get the 1300's here. I would have one already.

stupid honda.


anyways Im not finding out any info from honda either I called Honda UK cause i know they have the 919 and the 1300 and they keep telling me that they cannot recommend the 1300 fairing for the 919 because it wasn't designed for it and could be a safety hazard. Not whether it will or will not fit which was the question I was asking the dinkus on the phone.

I understand they are covering their ass by telling me its not safe but TELL ME IF IT FITS DAMMIT


I might just have to go with a flyscreen. any recommendations for highway that don't look stupid?

Wink Try a Give fairing

Hi Typhoon,

I use a Givi fairing which does a fair job of protecting me. Good price as well.

Tell me, is that Harrow on the Hill or Harrow over the Hill ???

Cheers

Vic.......

thanks smokin... and vic, its actually harrow ontario canada... we pride ourselves on nothing and yet still love our little town of 5000 people. yano how most towns have that "THING" that they claim is what puts them on the map. hmmmmm, no, we have nothing.

back on the tracks before I derail my own thread resurrection.

The givi is another alternative I've looked at but had doubts in the wind protection for a 2000 + mile ride. the honda flyscreen is the other option but also very small.


For around town I love the 919's nakedness but on a serious trip, I would rather not be windblasted for 10 hours a day.

would you ride the 919 with a givi for 2000 miles? hell nevermind your in the uk. 2000 miles and you've gone through an 5 countries and an ocean

you guys and your puny little countries...

i'm using givi a750 and have crossed 3 countries in a day. all 860Km riding at 140kmh to 160kmh. didn't really feel fatigue from the windblast. quite tolerable with the speed.
a friend riding the CB400 using a760 claims that wind protection is very good. he is however rather short.
another hornet here also using the smallish a200b has also rode 3 countries in a day without any complains.
i find the 760 good too, the tip of the screen is curved up which gives better wind protection.
