At Honda’s booth all the spotlights will be on the new CB1000R. Japanese experts have deeply revised the previous model, starting from the new motorbike concept. As a matter of fact the old sporty naked version has been changed into a café racer model. The CB1000R mantains 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engine now empowered with 145 hp. Electronics has gained a new Throttle By Wire system equipped with 4 Riding Modes (Rain, Standard, Sport and User, which can be personalized), that manage on power delivery, engine braking and traction control. Anti-slip clutch as well as a lighter exhaust system are also included. Its lightweight and rigid cast aluminium frame holds together a chassis including new Showa adjustable suspension, which contributes to restrain its weight (wet), now about 212 kg (-12 kg). A CB1000R+ special version, equipped with quick-shifter, heated hand grips, seat cowl and a larger windshield (all offered as a standard) is also available. Honda will be at EICMA 2017, pavilion 22, booth O 48.
