The Honda CB1000R is a Naked bike manufactured by the Honda Motor Company.[1] It was unveiled at the Milan Bike Show on 6 November, 2007 as a replacement for the CB900F.[2]

Styling cues are borrowed from the CB600F. The engine is taken directly from the 2007 CBR1000RR and is expected to produce around Convert/bhp. The front suspension uses a 43 mm (1.7 in) inverted HMAS cartridge-type Motorcycle fork with stepless preload with compression/rebound adjustments and 120 mm (4.7 in) cushion stroke. The rear is a Monoshock with gas-charged HMAS damper featuring 10-step preload and stepless rebound damping adjustment and 128 mm (5.0 in) axle travel.

The CB1000R continues Honda's goal for mass centralization, a recent Honda trait where they attempt to place as much weight as low and centralized on the bike as possible.
