2011 2012 New Honda CB 1000 R : Photo, Specification and Reviews







2011 2012 New Honda CB 1000 R ,The pure streetfigter are suitable to comment for this bike.A bigger low and midrange does make a better street bike I'd say. The Cb1000rr always gets reviews on how much faster off the line it is compared to the other liter sportbikes. This cb1000r has more low and midrange. Steve in the video was wheeling all over the place. Gutless my a@#. I had an '04 Z1000 that had a great hit at 7k plus rpm but riding around town below that was a bit tame. On a naked the point of the wind rush is to give that feeling of speed without going 120+mph. On a sportbike you just get used to the speed because there's no air blast making you hold on. My last bike the m109 had gobs of torque, power to 7.5krpm, great soundtrack and had that wind blast effect. Just a bit heavy and unwieldy on country back roads. Great for my urban commute. If they made a bike with the m109's engine characteristics and but it in a bike the size of the cb1000r that would be wild. My current bike (griso 8v)falls between the m109r and the '04 z1000. Handles better than the m109 and has more midrange than the Z. So far i love it. Maybe include the griso in that naked bike comparo. that would be cool to read.
