The Honda CBF1000 is a family of sport touring motorcycles with water-cooled, 4-stroke, 1000 cc inline, 4-cylinder, engines which are based on the CBR1000RR Fireblade engine. The CBF1000 has a steel frame also based on the frame of another model, the CBF600. Produced by Honda Italia Industriale S.P.A. the CBF1000 was first available in March 2006, mainly in the European market.

The chief designers, Ishu Akari and Magnus Jaderberg, targeted riders over 30, that prefer smooth progressive acceleration combined with a relaxed riding position and easy handling. In comparison to the high-revving characteristic of the CBR1000RR’s engine, the CBF1000's engine has a more level power delivery, better suited to touring and relatively inexperienced riders. Although peak power and peak torque are significantly lower than the CBR1000RR engine, power and torque are higher in the lower rev range. The CBF1000 has programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI). Anti-lock braking is an option but a combined half-fairing is standard. The handlebars, seat height, and screen height are adjustable.

The CBF1000GT version adds a full lower fairing, paniers, and top box. The CBF1000N is a naked version without fairing. The CBF 1000F, a new design, was released in 2010. The major changes were, a new frame, made of aluminum rather than steel, a four into one exhaust system replacing the original four into two, new digital instruments, and a redesigned fairing/screen. Power was also increased while weight and fuel consumption were reduced.
