    I don't know if it's the bare aluminum or my aversion to half fairings, but that looks terrible.

    It looks thrown together.

    However, for me that isn't point. What interests me is if Honda copies the Tuono path. The Tuono is a beautiful and brilliant bike. It is one of the few bikes that genuinely could tempt me away from Honda, so if the new CB1000R is like this, but, you know ... finished with a coat of paint, then I'd get in line.

    Interesting take. Ive always said the tuono was in its own league its the only supernaked that's "not" and the the least removed from being a superbike. I was tempted by it but it was just to cramped for me.

    Now could honda follow suit and join the sportbike with flat bars part....hmmm

    Agreed ! ^^ I think the issue with Tuono is that it's just the RSV with flat bars and no lower fairing - it's not really a true naked and has pretty much what you would call a fixed fairing - it also priced up alongside full fat Fireblades, R1s and GSXRs - I don't like the Yam but pitching a reworked bike at £10k was genius.

    my 'best buddy' riding partner has a Tuono, and puts on billions of miles without discomfort... and - wonder of wonders - without any major maintenance issues in 30,000 kms. and, my god does it look good! plus, when he cracks the throttle, the sound it emits is otherworldly ( aftermarket exhaust). I'd own one, but I can't resist Honda practicality and reliability...
    piling the mileage on...

    Friend of mine here at Honda has a 2008 CBR1000RR that he has modified (very lightly, I'll add) to be a CB1000R-beater. After riding it I can appreciate the difference in power immediately. There's no point, even down low, that our CB's have the edge.

    I will say that this looks a bit unfinished, but not nearly as much as I would have assumed. All he's done is slightly raise the seat, remove the fairings, add an upper tripple for a handlebar and hide wiring. He's got a stock dash and uses a cheap eBay headlight. His front cowl is just the OEM tail cowl cut to fit. I'd be very tempted to do this but with black parts instead.

    As it's got 50 bhp more I guess it might beat a CB 1000.--------------------------------------

    That’s very nicely done ! That vast part of the frame is the challenge - a custom panel (maybe carbon) would be my temptation

    Looks good !

    Ok folks here’s the latest rumour and mock up pictures - this seems a bit more probable - a hint of retro and some nicely disguised blade running gear and a SSA !! Found on Japan’s Young Machine :
