Does anyone else get the impression that Honda are trying to take it to the aftermarket specialists? And where's the belly pan Honda? Seems to be missing from the lineup. I love the Honda belly pan for the older model Hornets but they don't offer one for this bike. I'm not a fan of any of the aftermarket belly pans I've seen so was hoping Honda would offer something, but nothing... yet
Bits that appeal to me? Heated grips (don't laugh, they're a godsend), clutch and crankcase covers, 3D logos, rear hugger and wheel stickers. Notice there's no tank protector for a change? That'll be because of the seat padding coming around the tank already then. A feature that I really like as it should make it easier to grip the tank and tank pads tend to look tacky IMHO
Yeah, they don't remember the last setting you had, you just press it once and it goes on full power, and you press it more to lower it, though I've rarely put them on when I didn't need full power. They're a godsend in the rain too; my hands never stay wet because the grips dry my gloves as soon as the rain hits them :thumbup
Mine are mounted on the left mirror stalk, but you should get them mounted to the tank's fastening bolts just behind the headstock on the CB1000R (no space there, or bolts on my Hornet)
