Drool Over The 2021 Honda CB1000R

We give you a lowdown of Honda’s flagship neo-retro streetfighter


2021 Honda CB1000R

The Honda CB1000R has always been one gorgeous motorcycle, but for 2021, Honda has dialed things up a notch. The brand’s flagship streetfighter gets a slightly aggressive styling without robbing it of its retro charm. While we wait for the bike to grace Indian shores, here are some juicy details for you to drool over in the meantime.

The Honda CB1000R strikes the right balance between modern and retro. The design is elegant, with simple lines and minimalist bodywork. The neo-retro streetfighter looks like a perfect modern-day rendition of the CB750.

2021 CB1000R headlight

The 2021 model features a slightly aggressive headlight design, replacing the flat-ish headlight on the outgoing model. Complementing the headlight is the horseshoe-shaped LED DRL.

Replacing the blue backlit display is a new 5-inch TFT display, complete with Honda Smartphone Voice Control System, a system similar to the new H’Ness CB350.

2021 Honda CB1000R shrouds

A closer look will show that Honda has also slightly tweaked the design of the radiator shrouds. Compared to the older model, the shrouds are compact and blend well with the minimalist design.

Honda CB1000R wheels

The CB1000R gets new W-spoked alloys as well, replacing the 5-spoke Y-design rims on the older model. The new design blends well with the single-sided swingarm

Honda CB1000R subframe

Though the old one didn’t look bad, Honda has updated the sub-frame for 2021 and it looks stunning!

The Euro5-compliant 998cc inline-four motor continues to develop 145PS and 104Nm of peak twist. However, Honda claims to have improved the fuel-injection system for better throttle response and power delivery.

Cb1000R black edition

For 2021, Honda has introduced a sinister-looking Black Edition of the CB1000R. As the name suggests, this variant ditches the brushed aluminum finish in favour of a satin black finish. That’s not all. The Black Edition also gets a quickshifter and a flyscreen as standard.

The CB1000R gets fully adjustable, 43mm Showa Big Piston Separate Function Forks at the front, and a spring-preload and rebound-damping adjustable Showa monoshock at the rear.

Honda CB1000R brakes

Braking duties are handled by twin 310mm floating discs with radially-mounted Tokico calipers at the front and a 256mm disc at the rear.
