The 2022 Honda CB1000R Heavy Bike is renowned for its solid yet subtle performance and Neo-Sports Café design. And we’ve outdone ourselves for 2021: The CB1000R is now available. The blackout style is evident at first glance, but more subtle details emerge upon further inspection. It’s not just a bike with a black tank; the fork, subframe, radiator shrouds, air box covers, front fender mounts, wheels, and more have all been treated equally. The wheel spokes, swing arm pivot plates, and handlebar clamp all include machined details that lend an air of handmade uniqueness. A new digital gauge cluster, seat cover, USB port, and fast shifter round out the list of improvements. Get aboard a CB1000R and join the dark side.
2022 Honda CB1000R Heavy Bike – Features and Specs
Expertly designed for dynamic and potent performance, the CB1000R’s 998 cc four-cylinder engine provides generous handfuls of intermediate torque.
Honda’s Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) maintains manageable and effective output over the whole rpm range.
With four configurable throttle-response settings, you can effortlessly tailor the bike’s performance to your preferred riding style (Standard, Sport, Rain, and User).
The responsive performance is further improved by the 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system, which creates a pleasant rumbling, and the significant intake and exhaust valves and throttle bodies.
Assist slipper clutch
In addition to making it easier to use the CB1000R’s clutch, the assist slipper clutch is responsible for transferring all of the bike’s power to the pavement. The slipper design also helps reduce wheel hop when downshifting and braking aggressively.
The standard quick-shifter on the CB1000R allows for seamless upshifts without decelerating or pulling in the clutch.
By adjusting the PGM-FI parameters, power delivery may be made even more seamless, and throttle response can be made more immediate.
The Neo Sports Café design of the CB1000R is a sleek and streamlined update on a classic look, fusing sports naked and café racer influences with the bike’s trademark single-sided swing arm and vivid LED lighting.
The CB1000R’s high-performance braking system is identical to the top-of-the-line Fire blade down to the dual front discs and includes two-channel ABS.
The CB1000R has a fully adjustable suspension system with a single Showa BFRC (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock at the back and an all-new Showa Separate Function Fork – Big Piston (SSF-BP) upfront for a controlled but sporty ride.
Black Edition styling
The new Black Edition appearance of the CB1000R is unmistakable, with its blacked-out engine, shrouds, exhaust, and chassis. Also, take note of the machined aluminum wheels, updated instrument panel visor, and reworked passenger seat and seat rail. The CB1000R’s all-black aesthetic conveys the seriousness with which it approaches its work.
The somewhat elevated riding position and ergonomically designed seat make long rides more pleasant and safer.
Brilliant LEDs are integrated into the design of the headlights to offer superb visibility at all times during the day or night.
