The 2011 CB1000R utilizes a 998cc inline Four with an aluminum frame and fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork.
Americans will pine over one less European-only model as Honda announces it will introduce the CB1000R naked as a 2011 model.
“Last week we introduced the all-new entry-level CBR250R and we’re just as excited about this addition to Honda’s lineup for 2011,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “The CB1000R fills a great position in today’s market as we now bring a very capable sport machine packed with high-performance features to riders who focus on street use—wherever and whatever their destination
may be.Whether it’s a quick trip down a favorite backroad, a weeklong ride through a few states, or anything in between, the CB1000R is versatile enough to do it all.”
The CB1000R makes use of a 998cc liquid-cooled Inline Four. The aluminum frame and single-sided aluminum swingarm make up the chassis, along with a fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork and preload, rebound adjustable rear shock. Braking comes via dual 310mm four-pot calipers and a single disc rear.
The new naked Honda will be available in Pearl Black and hit U.S. dealerships in Spring 2011.
