New CB1000R lands in the UK

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Honda’s new CB1000R is now in UK deal­ers. The super-naked has had rave re­views so far and MCN’S act­ing con­sumer editor Dan Suther­land rode one of the first in the coun­try dur­ing a trip to the Isle of Man.

He said: “It’s a re­ally nice pack­age. With 143bhp and 77ftlb of torque, there is great ac­cel­er­a­tion from low down in the revs and plenty of midrange.

“Although not as bru­tal as ri­vals such as Yamaha’s MT-10 and KTM’S 1290 Super Duke R, it’s no slouch, re­main­ing planted as we climbed past the 125mph mark over the Moun­tain Sec­tion of the course.”

Prices start at £11,229 for the stan­dard bike and climb to £12,229 for the ac­ces­sorised CB1000R+.

How is that for a gor­geous retro?
