2019 HONDA CB 1000R+ UPDATES & REVIEW

PERFORMANCE UPDATES

Honda CB 1000R uses a Fireblade-derived 998c, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder motor that adds up more power and torque to the specs sheet. Power figure is currently standing at 143.4PS while torque goes up from 99N.m to 104N.m. Several new features are added like ride-by-wire, slipper clutch, rider modes, power settings, traction control and engine braking settings.


HANDLING UPDATES

A reworked steel frame is the most noticeable thing here that drops its kerb-weight to 213kgs. So power to weight ratio has improved a lot. Suspension duties are handled by a 43mm, fully-adjustable, separate function Showa forks and Showa monoshock at the rear which is fully-adjustable as well. The ABS-equipped radial brakes is also a welcome addition. Heated grips, single-seat cowl, radiator protector, quick shifter, flyscreen, front fender panel, hugger panel and radiator grill etc are the other noteworthy features.


HONDA CB 1000R CONCLUSION

This is a high-end version of Honda CB 1000R with several added features. Along with major performance and suspension updates, this one has become even more aggressive and powerful than ever. So stakes are really high and will go head-on against the likes of Kawasaki, BMW, Suzuki and Aprilia models within the same price bracket.
