The Honda CB1000R is a standard motorcycle, part of the CB series manufactured by Honda Motor Company.[2] It was unveiled at the Milan Bike Show in November 2007 as a replacement for the CB900F Hornet (known in the US as the 919).[3]

Styling cues are borrowed from the 2007 CB600F Hornet. The engine is a detuned version of the 2007 CBR1000RR engine and produced about 109.44 hp (81.61 kW) at the rear wheel.[1] The front suspension uses a 43 mm (1.7 in) inverted HMAS cartridge-type telescopic fork with stepless preload with compression/rebound adjustments and 109.2 mm (4.3 in) travel. The rear is a monoshock with gas-charged HMAS damper featuring 10-step preload and stepless rebound damping adjustment and 5.0 in (127.0 mm) axle travel.

The CB1000R continues Honda's goal for mass centralization, a recent Honda trait where they attempt to place as much weight as low and centralized on the bike as possible.[citation needed]
