New for 2013

- Available in Cool Pearl White.


- The CB1000R powerplant features a sport/racing heritage in the form of a compact, lightweight and powerful 998cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected inline-four-cylinder engine that has been specifically retuned for a street-savvy ride with impressive amounts of low-end and midrange power.

- Standard seating position delivers excellent rider comfort and tremendous versatility for long-distance travel and two-up riding.

- Short, compact and lightweight seat and tail cowl are both attractive and functional.

- Compact and stylish three-section LCD instrument panel features a multi-segment LCD tachometer.

- The crankshaft, mainshaft and countershaft are situated in a triangulated configuration, with the countershaft located below the mainshaft, to dramatically shorten the overall engine dimensions from front to back.

- Racing-derived 16-valve cylinder head delivers outstanding flow for optimum combustion characteristics and power production.

- Aluminum composite cylinder sleeves are high-pressure-formed from sintered aluminum powder impregnated with ceramic and graphite. The lightweight composite sleeves provide enhanced wear resistance and superior heat dissipation compared to conventional sleeves.
