My new toy!

After modifying and riding the hell out of my 919 for last 3 years, I finally got myself a brand new 2012 CB1000R
Let me tell you, no matter what anybody says here, CB1000R is a totally different animal compared to 919. Don't get me wrong, 919 is a very good bike, but CB1000R is a better bike

Thank you Mike! These are few more pictures.
nd4spd, since 919 gets a pretty good gas mileage (45 mpg avg!) I will use it commuting (Traffic sux big time down here!)

What are the biggest differences? Since you have them both right there.

2016 Honda Africa Twin
2007 Honda 919
1998 Kawi ZX9R (Sold)

The biggest difference is the response. Throttle, brake and handling are much more responsive and direct.
On my 919, I have a full Leo Vince exhaust system with custom Power commander fuel map, Penske 8983 rear shock with front fork work, and front brake upgrade and I thought my 919 rode like a dream...
But I was so shocked when I rode CB1000R back home from the dealership... All the hard earned money and riding time I put in my 919 was no where close to the performance of the 1000R...

hagibon, do us a favor please, and measure up the front forks! i'd love to know if they would be a direct bolt-on to the 919. that'd be awesome!

Pvster, soon as I get a hold of the caliper, I will major it for you. But by eye-balling it, CB1000R USD forks looks much wider...

I'm guessing he means if the legs are long enough for a front end swap? If it follows other cb steering stem sizing from Honda a front end swap with the cb1kr would be a nice upgrade to the aging (and harder to find nowadays) rc51.

This is, however, just my guess :-)

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Hagibong, congratulations... Beautiful bike.
I just order the 2011 CB1000R handle bar for my 919... Could you confirm if it is a 28mm tapper bar? I haven't ordered the adapter for it. And also is the bar significantly lower than the stock 919 bar? Thinking of a riser as well.

Thanks, and congratulations again.

I was looking at one of these recently and almost pulled the trigger. I didn't want to drain the account, so I went with a 919. Is there a noticeable torque gain throughout the gears? I assume there is, but how much?
