CB1000R, CB300R AND CB125R BRING A NEW KIND OF NAKED STYLE
The CB1000R headed a trio of new naked machines with a
unique new identity developed under a design theme of ‘Neo Sports Café’. The
new styling language is modern and minimalist, mixing sports naked and café
racer inspirations with head-turning results. A 12kg weight reduction and 15kW
power up compared to the previous generation of CB1000R means a 20% improvement
in power to weight ratio. The multiple riding modes with different combinations
of Power, Engine Braking and Honda Selectable Torque Control run on a new
state-of-the-art Throttle By Wire engine management system.
The CB300R and CB125R are both built for fun riding, with
light weight and free-revving engines. But they also boast high specification
41mm USD forks, preload adjustable rear suspension, radial-mount 4-piston front
brake calipers and several other features more usually found on much larger
machines such as LCD instrument display, LED lighting and IMU-based ABS system.

Twin marks the 30th anniversary of the arrival in Europe. Bearing the same
tricolore paint scheme as the original, the new model is built to go even
further on both on-road and off-road adventure. It has a 5.4 litre bigger fuel
tank than the CRF1000L Africa Twin itself, plus longer travel suspension,
higher riding position and ground clearance, heated grips, extra-large skid
plate and extended fairing with protective cowl bar. It also shares the
extensive updates given to the Africa Twin, which include Throttle By Wire
engine management with four riding modes, expanded Honda Selectable Torque
Control parameters, and revised intake and exhaust for stronger mid-range
