Design And Comfort
The Honda CB1000R reflects power, masculinity with a distinctive style and appeal. It is a brain child of the Honda engineers' conceptualisation to make it a naked beauty to convey powerful impression even when it rests on the stand. The Honda CB1000R further grabs attention of every onlooker with the magnetic look and its unstoppable power-packed performance. The rear seat rises and the rear tyre is huge with seat saddle pitting a little. These looks of the bike are further enhanced with slim and short tail cowl and a forward-tilted fuel tank.

Ride And Handling
Honda CB1000R sets the heart of many bike lovers on fire with its phenomenal speed and power kissing the Indian road. With the amazing acceleration and the new version of its braking system, the super bike can well be kept under control without the slightest displacement. Cartridge-type fork suspension system never fails and delivers smooth stop. The Z rate sports bike standard tyres withstand high speeds and the wider rear tyre provides amazing stability and awesome pull on the corners and turns. Honda CB1000R is equipped with ABS or Antilock Brake System which functions on bumpy and uneven road surfaces. The system reacts when there is even small change in the speed of 2 wheels and applies brake pressure for smooth and steady deceleration/stopping of the bike. So it should suit Indian roads as well. The tubeless tyres also contribute to the lighter weight while still gripping the road surface. With competition from Yamaha and Suzuki, Honda is poised for greater challenges in the super bike segment even in India.
