I registered here about a month ago but have only just got permission to post - I took delivery of my 2018 silver-grey CB1000R NSC on 17th Sept, with factory fitted quickshifter.
I've come here after 4 years on a BMW R NineT - I loved that bike but started having problems with persistent oil leaking from the shaft drive, and since I was out of warranty, it was a costly rebuild. I just couldn't trust the bike anymore.
I am enjoying the smoothness and the response of the CB1000R, I've not had an I4 bike for 7 years now and that was a 600cc so not nearly as much punch.
So far I've added an Evotech rad guard (lovely quality), and have Oxford retro heated grips, some V-Trec folding levers and a tail tidy ready to go on in the next week or so.
I've only ever seen one other NSC out and about on the roads in London - anyone else here in the London area?
