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.
Another major difference was the chassis, with the single-sided swingarm and model-specific four-spoke wheels.
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.
This Honda CB1000R is being sold by the original owner, who bought it new from Robertson Honda in North Hollywood, California. The odometer shows 3,350 miles.
