There’s just something about a big inline-four streetbike without any bodywork. The engine and chassis on display for the whole world to see—no excuses given or needed. It’s all business, and you never get tired looking at it. Plus, it’s light, powerful, and responsive. And our all-new CB1000R is the best open-class naked streetfighter we’ve ever produced. It’s like a triple-shot of espresso for your motorcycling soul. You get a high-revving 998cc four-cylinder engine that’s specially tuned for midrange and top-end power. Cutting-edge Neo-Sports Café styling, an updated chassis, an improved electronics package, and a relaxed, more open riding position. The new 2018 Honda CB1000R. Sometimes, less really is more.
INLINE FOUR ENGINE
The CB1000R’s powerful 998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine uses an architecture and layout proven on Honda’s Superbikes. Forged (not cast) pistons make it as strong as it is powerful.
This innovative design hooks up tight to get all the CB1000R’s power to the ground, yet still offers a light pull at the clutch lever. Plus, the slipper design helps mitigate wheel hop during aggressive downshifts and deceleration.
OPEN RIDING POSITION
We call it the rider triangle—where your butt hits the seat, where your feet rest on the pegs, and where your hands grip the bar. By opening up the triangle on the CB1000R, you sit up a little straighter, which gives you a higher vantage point. Plus, most riders will find it a little more comfortable, too.
STEEL BACKBONE CHASSIS
The CB1000R features a unique frame design. The main mono-backbone component is steel, and that joins up with split-tightening aluminum pivot plates. You get the basis for excellent handling along with lightweight design.
