2012 Honda CB1000RA Review

It’s naked aggression in a user-friendly, fun-to-ride package. That’s the outrageous Honda CB1000RA, a bike that’s as much fun to look at as it is to ride.

With a stunning blend of snarling, take-no-prisoners attitude and easy everyday rideability, the CB1000RA feels perfectly at home cruising city streets or snaking through twisty backroads. Packing the punch of a litre-class superbike, its CBR-derived fuel-injected 998 cc inline-four engine features enhanced low-to-midrange torque for extra oomph in the tight quarters of the city, while retaining effortless passing power on the open road. This muscular engine hogs the spotlight, with only the barest of bodywork and frame blocking your view of it. Although the aluminum mono-backbone frame is visually hardly even there, it’s plenty capable of harnessing all that horsepower. The roomy seating position created by the minimalist chassis delivers excellent rider comfort, making the CB1000RA quite capable of weekend or even week-long adventures, solo or two-up. Plus, standard Combined Braking System with ABS lets you ride with confidence even when the road surface is less than ideal.

The stunning CB1000R packs exhilarating litre-class Super Sports performance into a compact and muscular-looking form that looks fast even standing still. It delivers breathtaking acceleration, light, responsive handling and invigorating thrills at every twist of its throttle. This is combined with smooth, easy control and nimble handling that's just as enjoyable along winding roads as it is on city streets.

Last year the CB1000R was refreshed and updated with a new thicker aluminium handlebar and a new LED position light. In 2012 a brand new Mat Cynos Gray Metallic colour version further enhances its image as one of the most exciting and well designed Performance Naked machines on the road.

Pure Power.

Think of a fighter, standing in the ring. Boots, trunks, gloves—and plenty of muscle. That’s the Honda CB1000R, a machine that offers Superbike performance, a comfortable, do-it-all riding position, and sense of style that’s off the charts.

The formula is simple: We built a special chassis that puts the 998cc engine out front and center, and lets you sit more upright. The result is one of the most versatile open-class bikes the world has ever seen, as comfortable on a long trip as it is confident on the boulevard. When you need one bike that can do it all, and do it exceedingly well, the CB1000R is the machine you want in your corner.

Soul of a Superbike

The CB1000R is built around a superbike-strong 998cc DOHC inline-four engine that’s perfect for street riding, with plenty of torque and power on tap. Since it’s a four cylinder, it’s plenty smooth for longer rides too.

Ripped, and Ready to Show It

When you’re as muscular as the CB1000R you want to show the world. It’d be a shame to cover up that awesome engine, so we’ve put it out front and center so you and everyone else can enjoy it. Then our designers gave the CB1000R just enough styling touches (side radiator shrouds, fork-mounted cowl fairing, cast aluminum four-spoke wheels) to really set it apart. Get used to everyone else checking it out.

Rugged Chassis

The CB1000R offers exceptional handling, thanks to a Gravity Die Cast mono-backbone aluminum chassis that’s light and strong. A fully adjustable inverted fork and adjustable Pro-Link® rear suspension with a single-sided swing arm further refine the handling package.

Styling
The CB1000R has a compact and dynamic form with a distinctive 'mass-forward' orientation that projects a 'ready to pounce' image. Its frontal design is characterised by a compact bikini cowl surrounding a brilliant three-corner shaped multi-reflector headlight. Underneath, a distinctive LED position lamp gives it an unmistakable presence on the road. For 2011 this has been updated from a 5-bulb to a 7-bulb layout. Behind the cowl a high-tech, fully digital meter panel provides three large LCD readouts of all operating information. The tachometer features an instant multi-segment readout of engine speed, displayed in a wide, sweeping bar that extends across the top of the display.

The short, slim seat and tail cowl take obvious design cues from the CBR1000RR Fireblade and the powerful RC212V MotoGP racer. The seat is roomy and tapers towards the front, integrating smoothly with the side covers for a compact profile and comfortable riding position. The sleek, upswept tail cowl, supported by a strong and rigid cast aluminium rail, provides room for a passenger and integrates an attention-getting LED tail-light.

The lightweight form is matched by sharply sculpted bodywork. Mechanical parts like its magnesium head and ACG covers and natural finish aluminium pivot plates create a high-tech look of purposeful performance, accentuated by the eye-catching array of nickel-plated bolts that surround the engine's side covers. Stylish 17" swept 4-spoke wheels place a strong accent on the CB1000R's exciting performance potential.

Remarkably, the CB1000R looks and feels more like a compact mid-sized sportsbike than the full-bodied litre-class performer it really is. Its compact dimensions and easy reach to both the ground and its controls are outstanding in this class of Naked road machines. Its form locates the rider closer to the steering head for a riding position that shifts the CB1000R's balance of weight slightly forward onto its front tyre, achieving a greater feeling of crisply responsive control.


Colours
For 2012, the CB1000R comes in three colour versions that emphasise its mix of cool urban style and powerful performance. These include a stunning new Mat Cynos Gray Metallic version.

- Mat Cynos Gray Metallic
- Pearl Cool White
- Tricolour



Engine
The CB1000R features a compact 998cm3 liquid-cooled fuel-injected inline-four engine originally derived from the World Superbike Championship-winning 2007 CBR1000RR Fireblade. It is tuned to deliver sharp acceleration and full-bodied torque from the lower reaches of its rev range as well as breathtaking and smoothly linear power further up the powerband. Features such as an IACV (intake air control valve) keep excessive torque reaction and jerky low-speed performance to a minimum, ensuring smooth, enjoyable operation. The light-action hydraulic clutch takes full advantage of the engine's strong low-end torque and can be engaged at engine speeds of less than 2,000rpm without fear of engine stalling. The combination of optimised power-to-weight ratio and a wide powerband means that the CB1000R is capable of dynamic and satisfying thrusts of acceleration from anywhere in its powerband.

Optimised mass centralisation is key to the CB1000R's quick, neutral handling, and is greatly enhanced by a low-slung system that concentrates most of its weight directly under the engine.
This results in significantly quicker response to steering inputs. The exhaust design also allows maximum cornering clearance It includes a built-in oxygen sensor and 300-cell catalyser element that combine with the engine's advanced fuel injection system to ensure low emissions while maintaining strong and smooth performance.


Chassis
The CB1000R is built on a Mono-Backbone gravity die-cast (GDC) aluminium frame that holds the engine as a stressed member in a rigid diamond configuration. Strong, rigid and lightweight it adds to the motorcycle's sharp, smooth handling and instant response to changes of direction.

The overall design places a strong emphasis on optimal mass centralisation. Heavier components, notably the engine, main frame sections and exhaust system, are positioned as close as possible to the machine's rolling centre of mass while those sections located farther away from its centre are designed to be as lightweight as possible.

Like the CBR1000RR Fireblade, the CB1000R features a sturdy and responsive 43mm inverted HMAS cartridge-type front fork that delivers superbly responsive handling through tight corners. Providing 120mm of smoothly damped wheel travel, its fork tubes are also fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping, allowing customised control over riding performance. At the rear, an adjustable Monoshock damper and single-sided cast aluminium Pro-Arm swingarm provide 128mm of smoothly damped travel for assured handling balanced with compliant comfort.

Super Sports-class wheels, tyres and brakes enhance the bike's agile control and easy handling. The standard version combines a pair of radial-mount four-piston front calipers with a compact dual-piston caliper slowing a 256mm disc at the rear, creating smooth, responsive braking control. The CB1000R is also available in a Combined-ABS configuration that couples the balanced braking control of a Combined Brake System with the extra reassurance of an ABS.

2012 Honda CBF1000A Features and Benefits

Styling

The styling of the CBF1000 is compact and sporty with superior ergonomic design. It expresses its big bike performance capabilities without overstating them. Smooth lines and surfaces emphasise its aerodynamic proficiency. The immediate focus of attention is its sculpted half fairing. Its proportions are designed to provide a superior degree of wind protection at high speed as well as excellent manoeuvrability.

Four-position adjustable windscreen
The clean-cut front profile integrates an aerodynamic adjustable windscreen. This has four possible positions, giving an adjustability range of 120mm. Adjustment is easy and does not require any tools. The lowest position is ideal for short, sporty rides, allowing an intense feel while still reducing fatigue. The highest position reduces wind impact on the upper body, improving comfort on longer journeys. In each position and at any speed, attention to aerodynamics and stability are integral to the design.

Top-quality seat design
The CBF1000 has a three-position adjustable seat with a broad rear and slim, tapered front that give an ideal balance of low height and comfort. The seat can be raised or lowered 15mm from its 795mm-high central position and the handlebars are high enough to allow a natural, upright riding position which adds to both comfort and confidence. The pillion seat is also designed for easy, relaxed touring.

Exclusive light & indicator design
The CBF1000 light arrays emphasise its sporty image as well as providing excellent visibility. The front cowl integrates the same distinctive low-profile line beam headlights as the CBR600RR, as well as a pair of LED-look indicators. At the rear, a striking LED tail-light gives brilliant illumination. The oval-shaped rear indicators are also compact and feature an attractive design derived from the edgy CB1000R.

Sporty instrument panel
A large, central analogue rev counter provides a sporty focal point, surrounded by practical digital readouts. These include an odometer with dual trip meters, a speedometer, a clock, a fuel gauge and indicator lights. It also includes a fuel consumption gauge. This displays average fuel consumption on a trip basis as well as indicating real-time fuel economy and reserve fuel usage.

Engine

CBF models traditionally feature CBR-based engines, and the CBF1000 is no exception. It benefits from all the power of the liquid-cooled, inline-four powerhouse designed for the CBR1000RR with race-winning heritage.

The engine focuses on strong, enjoyable torque rather than top-end power. The compression ratio of 11.2:1 effectively improves both power and efficiency. The emphasis is always on enjoyment of the engine's power in the mid-range where it is most used. A high-revving low to midrange provides quick, powerful rushes of acceleration up to a searing top speed that increases long-distance touring pleasure.

Like its litre-class Naked brother, the CB1000R, the CBF1000 places a huge emphasis on enjoyment, offering full-blooded performance in an accessible and easily manageable package.

Fuel-injected efficiency
To deliver its wide-ranging and long-distance capabilities, the CBF1000 engine is tuned to perform with maximum efficiency. A highly developed Honda PGM-FI system constantly measures data on engine speed, throttle input and operating conditions in order to maintain the best power and throttle response in all conditions. 36mm throttle bodies and 12-hole injectors deliver the ideal fuel atomisation and sharp, responsive performance. The system also contributes to the motorcycle's low fuel consumption. The CBF1000 is extremely fuel efficient and easily sets the standard for fuel economy in its class, making it perfect for low-cost commuting. Combined with its high level of comfort and adaptability for touring, this makes the CBF1000 a great all-round motorcycle.

High-capacity single muffler
The enhanced performance characteristics of the CBF1000 engine are complemented by its exhaust system. This single-sided stainless steel system cuts down on weight and bulk by placing the pre-catalyser in the exhaust pipe and the main catalyser in one large-capacity muffler. The catalysing system itself maintains the optimal air/fuel mixture at all times to keep exhaust emissions to a minimum.

Chassis

The CBF1000 is built around a strong Mono-Backbone frame, tailored to the sporty and easy-handling performance characteristics of the bike. This lightweight and sturdy frame clamps the powerful 998cc engine as a stressed member in a diamond configuration, offering superior strength and rigidity for responsive control. The engine's rear mounts and swingarm pivot are positioned between a pair of strong cast aluminium pivot plates in a solid, rigid configuration that enhances handling. The overall dimensions are compact, adding to the bike's easy riding position and handling. A 1495mm wheelbase creates smooth, effortless high-speed stability, while the overall length and turning radius are kept relatively short for easy manoeuvring.

Smooth comfort and predictable handling are enhanced by top-quality suspension systems. These allow all riders to enjoy a natural, easy feeling of control, regardless of their riding style and level of experience. The 41mm telescopic front fork effortlessly handles uneven road surfaces and allows confident handling to match the motorcycle's performance capabilities. The wide fork span complements the comfortable handlebar position, creating swift, proficient manoeuvring control. For 2010 the front suspension was revised with new fork spring adjusters and quicker compression to give a smooth ride, and a higher rebound damping force for a sporty, responsive feel.

The swingarm is designed for optimum rigidity and cornering control. A responsive Monoshock damper featuring the Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) with seven-step adjustable spring preload contributes to an optimal balance of compliant behaviour and confidence-building control. This system allows the rider to achieve the best set-up for sporty solo riding or long trips with a passenger and a full load of luggage.

Confident control
The dynamic styling of the CBF1000 is enhanced by black-painted 17" cast aluminium wheels with an attractive 6-spoke design. Strong and lightweight, they contribute to the responsive feel. A
high priority has been placed on strong, responsive brakes to match the sporty power delivery and inspiring performance.

Front braking is delivered by 2-piston front calipers and large 296mm floating rotors. The 240mm rear disc is gripped by a rigid single-piston caliper.

Combined ABS
The C-ABS version of the CBF1000 is equipped with both the easy control of a Combined Brake System and the extra reassurance of an Antilock Brake System. The CBS effectively balances front and rear braking control for smooth operation. At the same time, the ABS provides extra reassurance and the confidence to build skills in unexpected or extreme situations.

Standard Equipment
The CBF1000 is available in a range of factory options to provide a tailored solution for every lifestyle and riding style. A reduced power (72kW) version allows choice of the engine performance best suited to the rider's preference and experience. There are also versions with small panniers or large panniers as standard. The reduced power version can be combined with small panniers and all versions with ABS.

Background
Since the introduction of the mid-displacement CBF500 and CBF600 in 2004, our CBF motorcycles have built up a reputation for solid, reliable performance and ease of operation. Their initial 'Just Fit' concept set out to provide the ultimate in all-round comfort and adaptability for every rider and every task. The CBF600 in particular, with its dynamic Hornet-based engine, adjustability and all-round versatility, had an immediate appeal. Its satisfying performance has made it a staple of mid-displacement enjoyment, as well as an ideal vehicle for riders of all skill levels to grow towards larger-displacement models.

Rider demand followed for the same 'Just Fit' appeal and fun riding properties combined with the stronger and sportier performance of a litre-class engine. The CBF development team set out to create a versatile motorcycle that would provide an exhilarating and sporty ride in a compact and easily manageable configuration. The engine's performance would be focused where it is most enjoyable and useful for CBF riders - in the low and mid-range. The result was the 2006 CBF1000.

Based around a CBR1000RR engine, tuned for torquey mid-range and strong, enjoyable roll-on acceleration, the applications of the current CBF1000 range from commuting to light two-up touring, and everything in between. Its emphasis lies firmly on fun, the engine's torquey performance combining with a relaxed riding position and easy all-round handling. Powerful and aggressive, the CBF1000 is also beautifully accessible, making it one of the most enjoyable machines in the semi-Naked litre class.

2012 Honda CBR600RR C-ABS Review

Leading the Way Among Middleweights with ABS

CBR600RR C-ABS, Middleweight Champion.

The 2012 Honda CBR600RR C-ABS melds a light and compact chassis with impeccable power delivery to create a balanced combination that remains a favorite among sport riders. In racing, no other 600cc machine has won more AMA and World Supersport championships than Honda's CBR600. Also available with Honda's unique Combined ABS for the pinnacle of sportbike braking performance, the CBR600RR C-ABS continues to lead the way in the middleweight class.

Talk about a blast to ride: Honda’s awesome CBR600RR C-ABS strikes a perfect balance between performance and handling in a middleweight package. The 2012 Honda CBR600RR C-ABS offers state-of-the-art technology in a package most riders find just about perfect. And to make a legendary bike even better, you can opt for one with Honda’s revolutionary Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production supersport motorcycle.

The CBR600RR C-ABS is the best 600-class sportbike going, and one of the sharpest looking as well. The only question: Which color will you be riding?

It Is About the Bike.

Throw your leg over one of our supersport machines just once and you'll never ride anything but red again. More than half a century of race-bred engineering, fine-tuned at the highest and most heatedly contested levels of road racing in the world, have been poured into the bikes you see here. Sleek, eye-catching and packed with our latest, highest tech from nose to tail, our sport motorcycles exist for one reason: to strike fear in the hearts of every other machine out there.


Availability: December 2011

The CBR600RR holds an enviable position at the forefront of race-bred engineering, excelling in both track and road performance. In 2012 its competitive focus is reaffirmed by the release of a thrilling new colour option: a fresh Victory Red/Ross White version.

Supremely compact and potent, the CBR600RR delivers blistering power balanced by easy, natural handling and faultless road manners. This is made possible by ultra-light weight, mass centralisation and a compact chassis. The engine delivers immediate, exhilarating torque, while its fairing is aggressively aerodynamic, enhances stability and allows maximum enjoyment of the machine's performance.

Smooth, strong braking power is provided by radially-mounted four-piston caliper front disc brakes. The ABS version features the revolutionary Honda electronically-controlled "Combined ABS". Due to its short wheelbase, a sportsbike can be prone to pitching under hard braking, which reduces rear traction. The unique Honda system, designed specifically for Super Sports riders, minimises this tendency, ensuring superb stability and control under severe deceleration.

In either the standard or the Combined ABS version, the CBR600RR is an incredibly versatile and agile Super Sports machine. It is capable of the fastest, most intense track riding, while also delivering a controllable and naturally easy road-riding experience.


2012 Honda CBR600RR C-ABS Features and Benefits

Main features

- New Victory Red/Ross White version New!

- Compact, lightweight and mass-centralised 600cc liquid-cooled inline-4 engine is tuned for strong midrange performance and maximum drive out of corners.

- Undercowl, bodywork sculpting and specially designed air vents provide highly effective airflow at medium and high speeds, and enhance machine stability.

- Every component of engine, chassis, exhaust and bodywork is relentlessly pared down in pursuit of optimum mass centralisation and minimum weight.

- C-ABS version features advanced Honda electronically-controlled "Combined ABS".

- Revolutionary Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) contributes to the safe ride feel by automatically adjusting to speed, aiding stability at high speeds and enabling light, easy low-speed handling.

- Fully adjustable inverted front fork and Unit-Pro-Link rear damper combine to allow late braking into corners and smooth progress around them.

- ECU for "Combined ABS" for circuit usage

HESD

The compact HESD helps maintain predictable high-speed handling and low-speed maneuverability. Way more sophisticated than a simple fixed-rate damper, it’s one of the keys to the CBR600RR C-ABS’s extraordinary handling.

Revolutionary doesn’t begin to describe these brakes.

The CBR600RR C-ABS’s Combined ABS (C-ABS) system is the first of its kind on a supersport machine. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well they work. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.

Racing Heritage

The CBR600RR C-ABS has been honed to perfection on racetracks all over the world, and has impeccable racing credentials: In fact, its engine was chosen to be the basis of the Moto2 class in Grand Prix racing.

The Honda Difference.

The CBR600RR C-ABS is a perfect example of typical Honda industry-leading innovation. Combining tons of power, light weight, and refined, responsive handling with amazing styling, it’s equally at home carving your favorite canyon as it is collecting wins on World Supersport podiums. That's the CBR600RR C-ABS—the ultimate middleweight sportbike experience.
