Hi, I currently ride a 2007 Z750 which I bought new last August having traded in my Hornet 600 against it. Had I known the 1000R was in the pipeline I would never have bought the Zed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great bike - GOES WELL AND LOOKS THE PART - but the 1000R was what I was waiting for. So, I may well be part exing the Zed in a few weeks time after I visit Dobles for their open evening on 1st July. I considered putting money down a few weeks ago but I need to at least see it in the flesh first and an unbiased test report would be good to see. However, from the pics and videos available it's an absolute stunner and, let's face it, it's a Honda with a reworked 'Blade motor - nuff said!? Looking forward to keeping up to date with opinions and news on this site. Cheers for now...!

Hi Loadmaster, :welcome

I bought mine from Doble, but I'm up near Nottingham so I won't be making it to the preview evening. I need loads of photos though! I was off work when the CB1000R was launched and watched the launch show. I was smitten immediately and ever since there was no chance that anything else would do. That said, I waited until the press launch before I put my money down. Once I'd heard independent journos raving about the bike I knew I had to have one... and here we are, only a few weeks to launch now :beer

Enjoy the preview evening, and :welcome again

Thanks for the welcome guys. I'm a few miles from Gatwick so Dobles are just a few miles up the A23 for me. If I do go for the 1000R (actually it's a case of when not if, it'll be good to get back in with Dobles as they are a good dealer to be involved with - I've been buying from them for about 10 years now. Far better than those that I bought my Zed from..!! Besides the 1000R, my other 'want' is the KTM 990 Duke R. There's a test in MCN today which I must take a look at. But at 1K more?? Not so sure.

Oh yeah, I nearly bought a Super Duke R last year, but I phoned the local KTM dealer and they told me that they weren't even in production yet and the annual allocation to the UK had already been sold off the back of the MCN review. I was gutted. I don't know about the latest, but that one was some £9000, which is £2k more than the CB1000R! Ouch!

how much does it retail for in your country?

at £2000 less of £9000, does it cost £7000?

Yeah, the standard, non-ABS CB1000R costs £6950 here, and the ABS model is £7450 I think
hmm... wow, then it will cost sgd 18.5k b4 taxes, aft i reckon will be around sgd 20k aft govt taxes. At this machine price, it's will not be easy selling it off here in Singapore.
Especially after adding in the coe, gst, ins n etc will bring the amount to ard 22+++, 23k.

:rolleyes

Hi zelot,
I have just ask a local importer here and he quoted that the cb1000r will cost me 720k pesos(22,500 sgd / 16,500 us dollars). It will be ordered from honda italy this june and will be here by october. I find it quite expensive since it will be at the price range of the 08 cbr1000rr(here in the Phil). Thats why im asking if the new cb1k will arrive at US or japanese shores. It will be cheaper to import especially if the bike is available in the US. 7000 British pound is around 13,650 US dollars. I believe that if the CB1000r will reach US shores, it will be price lower than the 08cbr1000rr(MSRP 11,500 US dollars). BTW, how much does a 08 hornet 919 US Version or a 08 cbr1000rr cost in singapore?
