Hi Ace and welcome! If you get some pictures at the Expo in Padova, could you post them here, please?
I am going to the Bike show in london on the 31st. I would be interested to seeing if there is any difference between the bike offered in Italy and the one in the UK.

As far as I know Honda have not published much about the CB1000R specifications. All I could find were the following:

Specifications
Engine http://www.honda.co.uk/motorcycles/2008 ... index.html
Bore & Stroke
Displ. 998cm³
Horse Power
Torque
Starter
Transmission
Dimensions 2,090 x 775 x 1,090mm
Seat Height
Tyres F)
Fuel 17 litres (including 4-litre LCD-indicated reserve)
Weight
Insurance Group

As you can see no BHP or Weight figures are given. Sorry it is not much information. Speculation has it the bike will have about 130 hp and wiegh less than 200kg. I guess all we can do is wait.

Ace by name.... and it's Ace to have someone here from Croatia.... (well you are the first to be exact) :hello

All the bikes you mentioned are good... what bike do you own at the moment?

The 1000cc bikes will get you pulse racing more than the CB600F or CBF600 (the CB600F Hornet would be more fun out of the two). If you want an all round bike then perhaps the CBF1000 might be an option (but personally I think it is horrible to look at).

The CB1000R is in my opinion the first aggressively styled bike Honda have made for years and on paper seems to have to performance to back up it's good looks.... I think we are expecting power to be around 125-130bhp mark but torgue is likely to be higher than other bikes in the class (therefore low to mid range will be particularly strong). Weigh is something of an unknown, I believe someone mentioned it being around 200KG which again is comparable to other bikes in the class (such as my FZ1).

Anyway, really please you are here - if we can help in anyway just let us know.

Also - if you feel there is a large Croatian CB1000R market then I can create a specific Croatian forum (like the the French, German, Soanish etc..... ones and also add the Croatian language pack to the messageboard to make life easier for those that don't speak/write English as well as you).

I found this:

http://www.honda-mc.dk/Admin/Public/DWS ... B1000R.pdf

bla bla bla... However, unlike the CBF1000, the new CB1000R’s engine has been tuned for stronger, more exciting power that extends further up the powerband, resulting in nearly 30% stronger performance that is both breathtaking and smoothly linear in its delivery.

So isn't less then 125 BHP's.

to: DAN

Thanks for greetings. :thumbup

Actually, I don't have any bike at the moment (and those 50cc Tomos and that kinda bikes on which I learned driving I don't count). Don't have much experience (miles, kilometers) on the bike. I've just obtain driving licence for a motorcycle driving.

Bike is one of the hottest that my eyes have seen. As I said. Only reason for NOT picking CB1000R would be high taxes, and eventually lack of money, and with salary of about 400 quid isn't even easy to live here (so I consider to leave Croatia temporarily in order to better salary somewhere else Europe) . Plus local Honda dealers here put their high taxes on the bikes, and in the end bike is more expensive then in Italy or in U.K. (to buy it in Italy wouldn't be a problem if we are in E.U., but we aren't yet). But you know, for things that you love you are willing to to sacrifice. ;)

I know a lot of Hornet owners which are planning to buy new CB1000R, so I will thankfuly consider (with other poeple here) your offer for Croatian Subforum. :respekt

For sure I will take pics there in Padova, but don't hold my word for a videos.

Thanks again. ;)

I completely understand Darius, we complain that things here in the UK are expensive (mainly because we compare to the USA where most things seem to cost very little)...but compared to countries like Croatia and I also believe many of the scandinavian countries we are quite lucky.

Well I hope you can have your dream bike one day, in the meantime please feel free to hang out here and bring your friends along too - the offer of a Croatian forum is still there you only have to let me know.

All the best.

DAN

Regarding power, I found (a while back) that the Italian Honda site was quoting power figures as follows:

  • Potenza massima 94 kW a 10.000 min-1 (95/1/EC)[/*:m]
  • Coppia massima 97,5 Nm a 8.000 min-1 (95/1/EC)[/*:m]
That 94kW translates to 126.00536193029491HP. I think 126hp is accurate enough don't you? :D

I appreciate that different countries often get different specs but this is all the info we have.

Regarding weight; someone in the know (on another site that won't let us post links back here so I won't mention their name) with a friend at Honda says the bike will weigh 217Kg wet (fuelled and oiled up). Nothing any more than that has been confirmed as yet.

Oh, I nearly forgot: :welcome :D

No problem. We'll have to see if any of it pans out to be accurate eh? :D I personally think it's a bit pants that the bike is officially for sale now but there are still no official figures available. Soon though I'm sure :D If they don't get the figures by the time the bike's on the road we'll have to see if we can get one dyno'd and get some real world figures eh?
