Looks like Honda finally took the gloves off. Hopefully this bike will make the AMA Superbike a bit more competitive, but they have their work cut out for them on that one. As a street bike, it probably isn't any better than the last 4 iterations of their liter bikes. Speed limits and all that.
No one has asked the only really important question.

Will Honda's 'new' CBR1000R be the new spec-sheet bragging rights winner at the Burger Barn? Because that's where most of them are going to spend most of their time.

Gonna have to wait for the all important 'shootout' winner to see who has the bragging rights at the Burger Barn. According to some people, that is the most important part of any motorcycle is that is wins something. That way the loser that buys it can at least brag about his bike.

Well, I could go and buy one of these this afternoon. Then I could sign up for track school and practice a lot. But I'm afraid that Keith Code would still kick my but on a 1985 GPZ750 like he would 99% of CBRKZZXYZ owners.

I ride because it's fun and I love to humiliate cagers. I'd rather have a Tiger. Then I can humiliate them in comfort. Like that fool in the Saloon Mustang or whatever slowass POS Ford's foisting on us these days.

What about this one?

CB1000R
From an article on MCN the designer said "if" they build it expect it to be expensive. They want only top-self parts on the bike. Love to see it, but at the current exchange rate the bike will probably push the $15k mark. Cool, nonetheless.

Great write up on the new CBR. Best one I've read by far and I actually learned something more about it than "it makes more power and is lighter"- which btw is just fine... Anyhow, nice write up and a great vid as well.
Okay, enough talk about Buz's b-ball skills. More about how great MO is, please. :cool:

But if we must digress from your praise to the mighty MO lords, I'd like to add my vote to those who'd like to ride that be-atchin' looking CB1000R.

We would talk more about Buz's B-ball skills......if he actually had some! Great write-up on the CBR Kev. Keep Buz in line for me, will ya?
The only way I could keep Buz "in line" is if I opened a bar...

Certainly is- but thats quite a list.
..least I dont have a porn name, ha ha!
Hard to make fun of someone who makes a living riding/writing new rocket toys who ALSO has porn name. Kinda adds to overall power, i guess. Might be mean if you were an accountant for Schnebbly's House of Bulbs or something.

I noted the video showed his "reserved" CBR had "KDUKE" affixed to the windscreen in 1"-high letters.

Mebbe Honda does read MO now and again (and has a sense of humour!)

Thank you Mo for including the actual weight! I hope to see it in all the future reviews regardless of bike type!

Thanks!

Yes. That has been the Achilles Heel of tests forever. If MO keeps listing actual weights then it might affect the wild lies called 'spec sheet dry weight' of the manufacturer's promotional writers.
