Details: Honda CB1000R

The CB1000R isn’t, as you might a … CBR1000RR. The two bikes lower engine case that makes the engines the same from the outside, but the makes a whopping 53bhp Is being a completely different from the CBR necessarily a bad thing?

Why the CB1000R is not a …

The CBR1000RR has a twin-spar aluminum — two large pieces of aluminum from the swing arm pivot and at the steering head. You’d see this type of frame on a M1, Aprilia RSV4, etc. In the CB1000R has an aluminum backbone — one large piece of aluminum from the steering head the top of the motor and splits into a Y heading south to the swing arm

This frame allows the to hit a lower price point it is easier to construct. Being in the of the bike, the frame is much protected from crashes.

people would call a de-tuned CBR1000RR motor, added restrictions and maybe changes like different or smaller throttle bodies. the two engines may share their architecture (cylinder spacing, height, transmission arrangement, drive, etc), a number of make the motor powering the unique.

–Pistons are 1mm smaller and is 1mm longer.

–Revised cylinder and side-draft throttle bodies. because of the backbone frame takes up more room, the airbox needed a place to Second, downdraft throttle like you find on the RR or any other machine, that provide a shot for air from the airbox to the valve are great for huge numbers over 10,000

In contrast, sidedraft intakes the air to make a 90 degree turn going past the intake and into the cylinder, improving low RPM filling and, with it,

–Gearing. A CBR1000RR is geared to go which is fun, but a 90mph gear is hard to use around In contrast, the CB1000R delivers acceleration from a … without abusing the clutch and a lot of noise.

The downside? It’s off the rev limiter at 145mph.

It sounds I’m saying “tuned for torque”, but is a subtle difference here. motor is built from the up to produce a specific powerband, not a re-tuned version of the CBR1000RR On paper the difference is subtle, but the bikes back to back and the is huge.

How the CB1000R stacks up with ‘nakeds’

The Diavel, Streetfighter, CB1000R, Speed and Street Touno V4R, and Brutale are all built around basically formula. Some, like the Triple are basically light-weight with lower gearing and bars. Others, like the are hulking brutes that do in 2.5 seconds. This is a crowded and defined genre of motorbikes.

a few of them and you quickly realize don’t have much in with one another.

Two things set the apart from the rest of the First, it’s price. in at $11,000 means that less expensive than in the “category” except the Z1000.

Don’t for a second think means that this is a motorcycle though. Second, this is designed and built in Italy for the market, but retains its essential (amazing fit and finish, slick transmission, flawless electronics and nice ergonomics, etc.) that makes a Honda a is still here, even the bike is technically Italian.
