About CB1000R 2018

The outgoing CB1000R is nearly a decade old, and as the competition first caught up and then leapfrogged it, an update was deserved. The Neo Sports Cafe was displayed as a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2017, but the new CB1000R based on it was on display in production form at EICMA in Milan the very next month.

Thankfully, the 2018 CB1000R hasn’t lost much of the Neo Sports Cafe styling – the round headlamp, the visually too-short tail section, the large tank and the wonderfully exposed engine all remain. Of course, the single-sided swingarm remains, exposing the rear wheel.

The engine is borrowed from the previous generation CBR1000RR Fireblade. It was then given a longer stroke, a higher compression ratio and revised gear ratios to offer better bottom and mid-range torque. The power output is higher, at 143bhp. A ride-by-wire system allows you four riding modes. Also present are a slipper clutch, ABS, traction control and fully adjustable Showa suspension.

There will also be a CB1000R+ with a quickshifter, heated grips and a few cosmetic bits that will make it look better. However, we don’t think this will available except as a special variant in the Indian market.
