    And here I was thinking the '14's stock fender were as atrocious as fenders came.
    You can have any color you want, as long as it's black.

    THIS! That looks like something to tow around a cart.

    Bling shiny bits, quckshifter

    It is reported in various places. No suspension upgrade ever mentioned :-( However, if the suspension is the same as standard FireBlade, then it is pretty good out of the box. Certainly the front is miles better that the standard pre-2018 CB1000R.

    A ‘CB1000R+’ version will also be available, with even greater aspirational appeal. It comes with quickshifter, heated grips and a range of premium accessories that flesh out the CB1000R’s styling: metallic meter visor and seat cowl, front fender panel, hugger panel and radiator grill

    18 standard or plus will get quite the same rear shock as 08-17 models

    It would of been nice if the plus version offered some genuine (ie expensive) upgrades like the Triumph naked's do, the suspension being the biggest want from most of us.

    Really? I generally think most road riders run out of talent long before the standard CB1KR suspension runs out of capability.

    I find the shock OK but the forks not great. I notice this while commuting in the city. On open roads, I have to ride around the inadequacies, and I am not very fast as far as I know.
