Is there any sports bike in the world more iconic, more instantly recognisable, and more desirable than the Honda CBR 1000RR? This magnificent motorcycle represents the height of Honda’s motorsport achievements, and has a racing pedigree that includes the ultimate in racing accolades, a string of MotoGP championships. It is the most powerful in the CBR model family and attracts the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts who demand the best performance from their bike. As well as being blisteringly quick, the CBR 1000RR boasts dazzling looks, giving it instant road presence and head-turning appeal.
One look at the model lets road users know that it is a very, very special machine. It has classic sports bike styling which includes a forward-leaning stance, large wheels, and inverted front forks. The angular front end gives the CBR 1000RR a determined, ferocious look. This is a bike that means business, and is guaranteed to muscle past the opposition. Its subtle windscreen deflects air over you as you crouch over the fuel tank, giving you that streamlined racing profile where rider and machine become one.
Below the tank is a bespoke, stylized fairing which also helps you grip securely with your legs for maximum control when changing direction. A second saddle at the back enables you to carry a passenger, and with that raised position they sit slightly above you for a superb view of the road ahead.
The bike’s practical features include rear-view mirrors on either side to give a clear view of your surroundings, plus a convenient grab handle on the upper seat for your pillion passenger. Carefully placed foot pegs for you and a passenger ensure a comfortable ride, even on longer journeys.
To keep your focus on the road, the console has been designed to be easy to read and user friendly. A single glance is all that is needed to understand the LCD instrument display, which includes a gear indicator and tachometer. A lap timer is also part of the instrument cluster, for the times when you return this sporting legend to its natural environment, and let the CBR 1000RR loose on the track.
Uncompromising Honda engineering makes the motorcycle’s powertrain so impressive that there is very little on the market that can even come close. The design is a flawless synergy of power and control, so every drop of grunt from that perfected engine is available on demand. The 1,000cc unit produces 178ps and masses of torque to surge forward confidently as soon as you turn the throttle. The PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system constantly monitors the engine and delivers the optimum mix of fuel and oxygen for maximum pace and efficiency, making it efficient as well as powerful. The bike is not only quick but agile too, as its large piston front fork set-up improves damping and provides better stability when braking.
Electronically controlled Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) enhances the ability to stop by distributing brake force to the front and rear wheels according to individual situations.
