Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2013 Honda CB1000R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
In 2007, Honda unveiled the CB1000R as an update for the 919 Hornet – but it took them four years to offer it in the United States. Like most naked literbikes, it utilized a detuned version of a superbike (in this case the CB1000RR) and enveloped it in a more comfortable package.
Where was it those first four years? In Europe, which is why much of the styling (such as the combination headlight/seven-bulb LED position light) was drastically different than what we were used to seeing from the Japanese firm.
In a 2011 review, Sport Rider praised the crisp low rpm throttle response, “great midrange power that is easy to manage”, and the nimble handling. They weren’t as pleased with the soft suspension and fueling – but as you’re about to see, the seller of this example (VIN: ZDCSC6019DF210166) has addressed that and a whole lot more.
Race Tech front suspension.
Ixil SX1 full exhaust with stainless steel headers, carbon fiber muffler body covers, and dB killer.
