2023 Honda® CB1000R Black Edition
THE ESSENTIAL SPORTBIKE
A streetfighter is a modern sportbike with abundant raw horsepower, minimal bodywork, and plenty of attitude. That describes our Honda CB1000R Black Edition perfectly. Nothing gets between you and the pure essentials of the riding experience. Its high-revving liter-class four-cylinder engine is specially tuned for midrange and top-end power. The seating position is a little more open and relaxed than most pure sportbikes. And its graphic treatment is as powerful as its engine: black on black, understated yet elegant, and touched with some machined highlights. Modern touches include features like a digital instrument display, under-seat USB port, and a quick shifter. Are you ready to ride this awesome beast? We thought so.
Features may include:
This innovative design hooks up tight to get all the CB1000R Black Edition’s power to the ground, yet still offers a light pull at the clutch lever. Plus, the slipper design helps mitigate rear wheel hop during aggressive downshifts and deceleration.
INLINE FOUR ENGINE
The CB1000R Black Edition’s powerful 998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine uses an architecture and layout proven on Honda superbikes. Forged (not cast) pistons make it as strong as it is powerful.
OPEN RIDING POSITION
We call it the rider triangle—where you sit on the bike, where your feet rest on the pegs, and where your hands grip the bar. By opening up the triangle on the CB1000R Black Edition, you sit up a little straighter, which gives you a higher vantage point. Plus, most riders will find it a little more comfortable, too.
The CB1000R Black Edition is a standout both when it comes to performance and how it looks. And it hasn’t just been dipped in black paint either—we use special black plating and black anodizing on parts like the front suspension, rear subframe, swingarm-pivot plates, handlebar clamp, the entire exhaust system, and more. You can see in the photos how it looks—and it looks even better in person.
