It's brilliant! If you've ever ridden a Speed triple then it's very similar but with a bit softer suspension (easily fixed with the preload), less vibrations and much better fueling.

It's light and very quick steering, no snatchiness on on/off throttle transitions, stable under hard acceleration (though the front feels slightly light), great brakes and wonderful mid corner - change your line as you please; it goes where you point.

Ergonomics are great for me but I am not tall (5ft 9ins). The pegs are in a sporty rear-swept position so if you have long legs and aren't used to sports bikes you might find it a bit cramped, though no more than other bikes in the class and certainly much lower than full on sports bikes. A slight lean forwards to the bars means a very relaxed riding position. I have ridden all day on two consecutive days without problems and without aches and pains afterwards.

XRCajun it is a cb1000, thats in Europe and Canada. There is speculation that we will get it in a year or 2 but we will have to wait and see

Very nice bike. I wonder what it would look like without the radiator shrouds.

I heard a rumor that we in the states side might not get this bike because (I quote the Honda and general Motorcycle industry people, so please don't shoot the messanger here) "naked bikes are not popular in U.S."

As a long time Honda bikes owner, and a current 919 owner, I am so disappointed that we didn't get CB 1000 already. It really is an awesome looking bike.
