Sitting on top of the Néo Sports Café family, the current one Honda CB1000R it has never found its place in the market.
From a modern style to a style that is ultimately very smart, the Japanese highway can change to a completely different world, that of Streetfighters.
Honda, which plans a comprehensive update of the CB1000R in 2024 it should thus make a 180 ° turn in the style of its machine, and get a motorcycle with a clear sports DNA to compete with the Ducati Streetfighter V4, BMW M 1000 RKawasaki Z900 or Yamaha MT-10.
A fierce street fighter, the new Honda CB1000R will therefore find its original sports roots of the 2008 model, left in the event of the 2018 road season, sacrificed on the altar of neo-retro style.
Moving away from the Café Racer style with Japanese sauce, the Honda CB1000R should get aggressive lines. A great return to the extreme sports car that would also signal Honda’s ambitions in a market where competition is now ahead.
Scheduled for 2024, the new Honda CB1000R should benefit from a four-cylinder engine borrowed from the CBR1000, and a design based on market codes, as well as the presence of small fins on the sides of the front fairing.
A project that has been proven and that we can’t wait to explore in more detail.
