In 1992, Honda kicked off the CBR®-RR series of open-class motorcycles with the 1993 CBR900RR, much to the delight of big-bore sportbike aficionados. Since those early days, we’ve traveled 20 years down the road, and the latest generation CBR1000RR demonstrates that a concept that was once breathtakingly innovative and impressive has only grown more so over the ensuing decades.

Actually, “reinvents” probably is an overstatement; 95 percent of this motorcycle, the new-for-2013 F6B, has been in existence for well over a decade. “Redefines” might be a better word. That’s because the 5 percent that’s no longer there has made a world of difference, and not just in the bike’s name or intentions; the effect on its performance is a few clicks short of remarkable.

But the F6B was designed with a new rider in mind. It's the Gold Wing for Gen X and it looks the part. Lower, sleeker and lighter - and without the big trunk that Gold Wings are known for - this Wing is like none of the 550,000 sold before it. This one is blacked out - wheels, frame, engine - with a gunfighter seat and a short windshield. It's much more bagger that Gold Wing. In fact, it may just be the ultimate touring cruiser.

When Mitsuyoshi Kohama was designated Chief Designer of what would eventually become the new Honda CB1100, he set out to create a motorcycle in a very different way than most of us could imagine. For starters, this bike didn’t fit into any existing category. This was not to be a new generation of supersport bike or a more comfortable touring machine or a way-out cruiser. Instead, this would be something very different.

In the real world, success seldom shows up overnight. Instead, it’s typically a gradual process that moves forward slowly, propelled by bright ideas, a strong will and a commitment to work tirelessly. And while all of these traits may well hurry a person down a given path, there’s a larger question to be asked: What is the goal? That direction, that driving force begins with clear-minded vision—although with the truly great, it sometimes begins with a dream. Soichiro Honda possessed all of the above qualities, but perhaps most important of all, he had a dream.
