introducing the 2018 CB1000R

 

INTRODUCTION

Honda’s venerable CB1000R sport standard turns an important corner for 2018, with a ground-up redesign that bridges the gap between performance and bare-boned Café Racer inspirations. In a dramatic identity shift, the CB1000R receives cutting-edge Neo-Sports Café styling, an updated chassis, and an improved electronics package—all changes that bolster performance while highlighting the importance of a strong, emotional connection between rider and machine.
