There's a lot of mixed views and opinions of the 2018+ CB1000R NSC. My advice with any bike is that if you research any bike then there'll be more negative posts then positive. Very few people will bother to write online how they are enjoying the bike and have had no issues. Any new model will have teething issues and there'll always be that 'Friday afternoon' bike that just didn't get bolted together properly. Mine, is so far a good'un. I'm well happy with mine.
