The Honda CBF1000 is a touring sports model motorcycle with a water-cooled, 4-stroke, inline 4 cylinder, 1000 cc engine based on the Honda CBR1000RR engine.

First available from March 2006 to mainly the European market, the machine has both Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) and an air injection system, providing exceptionally smooth riding from low to high rpm ranges. In addition, its adjustable seat matches the rider for extra riding comfort.

Compliant with the European Union’s Euro 3 emission standards and including a Combined Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard on some types, the CBF1000 offers top-level environmental and safety performance. Produced by Honda subsidiary Honda Italia Industriale S.P.A. (Italy), the machine is expected to provide an annual European sales projection of 10,000 units during 2006/2007.

In designing this machine, Chief designers Ishu Akari and Magnus Jaderberg at Honda were interested in a different type of rider. Research found that most riders in the over-30 age group at whom this new machine would be targeted, seemed to prefer a strong feeling of roll-on acceleration combined with a more relaxed riding position and easy all-round handling. This sort of strong roll-on acceleration comes not from rip-roaring peak power, but instead from a long-misunderstood force called torque. So, rather than using the CBR1000RR’s full blast of overwhelming, high-revving, race-ready performance in this new ‘all-rounder’, the CBF’s development team concentrated on finding ways to maximise its value as a machine that could be used on a daily basis. Although peak power and torque figures are significantly lower than the CBR1000RR Fireblade on which it is based, power and torque come on much sooner and lower in the rev range. This gives the CBF1000 "usable" power, something that is lacking in many machines with even larger displacement engines.

The CBF1000 also features an adjustable seat, adjustable handlebars, and a combined half-fairing with adjustable screen height.
