CB1000R Black Edition

ENGINEERING

ADJUSTABLE QUICK SHIFTER

It features a six-speed manual gearbox with a quick shifter, which means you can upshift without the clutch under full power. Plus, it aids in downshifting and is adjustable for three levels: soft, medium, and hard.

THREE-LEVEL ADJUSTABLE QUICK SHIFTER

This innovative design hooks up tight to get all of the power to the ground, yet still offers a light pull at the clutch lever. Plus, it helps mitigate rear wheel hop under deceleration.

FIVE-INCH TFT INSTRUMENT DISPLAY

Check out the instruments on this awesome machine. You get a big, bright, five-inch TFT (Thin Film Transistor) display that gives you all the information you’ll need while riding.

BLACKED-OUT EXHAUST

From the four head pipes all the way to the end of the muffler, the exhaust is a harmonizing symphony of black tones that not only sounds great, but looks great, too.

FOUR-INTO-ONE EXHAUST

The exhaust system can make a critical difference in power and this four-into-one design boosts torque at 5,000 RPM and above, saves 10 pounds, and provides it with a deeper, more raw exhaust note.

Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL

A great system that combines its old-school raw horsepower with a modern power delivery that keeps the bike hooked up and the power flowing under a wide variety of surface conditions.

HUGE REAR TIRE

To get all that engine power to the road, the Black Edition comes with a massive rear tire.

POWERFUL BRAKES

Large dual radial-mount four-piston front calipers bite 310mm floating rotors, while the twin-piston rear caliper squeezes a 256mm rear rotor, the combination providing massive stopping power. Plus, front and rear ABS are standard, which keeps braking even more under control, especially in adverse conditions.

SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM

A unique, single-sided swingarm is part of the bike’s excellent handling character, but also contributes a great deal to the way this machine looks.

SPECIAL GEARING

We fit the close-ratio six-speed transmission with gearing designed to emphasize the bike’s awesome acceleration. Crack the throttle and you’ll feel it instantly.

THROTTLE-BY-WIRE

Using our throttle–by-wire system, we’ve given it four riding modes (Standard, Sport, Rain and User), the last one letting you choose between three settings for each parameter and save the settings.

PERFORMANCE

INLINE FOUR ENGINE

The powerful 998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine uses an architecture and layout proven on Honda Superbikes. Forged (not cast) pistons make it as strong as it is powerful.

COMFORT

OPEN RIDING POSITION

We call it the rider triangle and opening it up you sit a little straighter, which gives you a higher vantage point. Plus, most riders will find it a bit more comfortable, too.

LEAN, LIGHT, STRONG

Weighing a mere 472 pounds, it earns its welterweight champion status. A lean open-class inline-four, devoid of excess, this beast maximizes performance, agility, and sheer enjoyment.

STYLE

BLACKOUT STYLING

This bike is a standout both when it comes to performance and looks—we use special black plating and black anodizing on parts like the front suspension, rear subframe, the entire exhaust system, and more.

ALL-LED LIGHTING PACKAGE

When it comes to lighting, it embraces an all-LED setup, offering lighter, brighter, and longer-lasting illumination throughout its entire package.

CLASSIC ROUND HEADLIGHT

The round-styled LED headlight is powerful and bright and sets the tone for the bike’s no-nonsense streetfighter presence.

FLANGELESS FUEL TANK

We build the fuel tank without a visible bottom flange. Sure, it takes a little more effort to manufacture, but you get a fuel tank with a clean, custom look that we think is worth it. Plus, the tank is slimmer for an even better fit and lighter feel.

REAR SPLASHGUARD

Adding a touch of sharp, contemporary style, the rear splashguard/fender seamlessly attaches to the swingarm and is a distinctive accentuating detail.

UNDERSTATED STYLE

This beast sends a subtle message that this is a premium machine. Check out the burnished-aluminum radiator shroud and airbox cover, along with the engine cases, cylinder head, and sprocket hub.
