I have a couple of issues with the accessory list, though that's not to say that I'm not impressed with how much is available.

The pillion and rider seat kits look plain ugly, who thought those colours were a good idea?

These titanium look panels would probably look OK on the silver bike but seem pretty pointless otherwise, especially on the green that they're showing here.

The undertray says that it "covers the factory standard rear mudguard irregularities". Why are there any irregularities in it already?

Am I being blind or is there no hugger in the hugger pic?

And finally, a swingarm protector? Surely if the swingarm is susceptible to boot scuffs then it's a faulty design and should either be redesigned or this bit should be standard.

Otherwise, :clap Honda!

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

The Hornet Cup belly pan was always my favourite on the 600 Hornet.... and the best on the 900 was the Ermax in my opinion.... the bike is prime for aftermarket bits though.

No crash protectors/bobbins, seems a bot of an omission really...

As Ant has said some of the body work parts seem pointless.... I like the colour codes engine parts though, no too over the top.

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

It's set up like a modern sports bike with the strap on the pillion seat, as you can see in standard pics and also on this one:

Yep indeed..... but those little dseats and straps hardly make it pillion-friendly.... remove the pillion footrests and give the bike a more tidy appearance from the rear :)

I can't see me ever carrying a pillion, so that's probably the direction I'll take. Get the pillion seat hump replacement and get rid of the pegs. Much better :D

That's not a bad 'official' selection for a bike that's not out yet. There's a few bits I fancy so will ask for the .com discount when I order the bike...

Ha ha, yeah, I love them, wouldn't go without ever again!

The other week I thought they weren't working, so I turned them off. Then my hands nearly froze. It's only when you're without them that you really notice how good they are!

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)

I've been given some prices for a couple of the accessories today by Doble:

Pillion Seat Cowl: £88.12
Carbon Rear Hugger: £175

The heated grips are most likely going to be a usual Honda price, probably around £160-ish. Thank god for discounts eh? :lol
