2010 Honda CBR1000RR
Performance and style. No two elements are more important on a sportbike, and the Honda CBR1000RR has them both in spades. Of course, when a bike is bred on the racetracks of the world using DNA gleaned from Honda’s MotoGP championship-winning machines, would you expect anything but the best? And the CBR backs it up, packing state-of-the-art features like our available Electronic Combined Anti-lock Braking System (C-ABS) and the revolutionary Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) that leave other literbikes on the trailer.
