Honda CB1000F unveiled

Honda UK have unveiled a further addition to the range for Honda CBF1000 bikes, with their new Honda CBF1000F.

The new CBF1000F has a single exhaust end-can to its 998cc Fireblade-derived motor, which is tuned for torque, but has a slightly higher compression ratio to the existing CBF1000 range and around 10bhp more. Honda’s frugal PGM-FI system makes the CBF1000F 7% more fuel-efficient. The 1000F also has a new aluminium frame, replacing the steel original, with improved suspension and adjustability. Honda’s revolutionary Combined ABS (C-ABS) system is included as well.

The CBF1000F has a racier, slimmer look to the half-fairing and a new dash layout. This includes a large, central analogue rev-counter and digital speedometer along with a dual trip meters and fuel gauge, which also shows both real-time and average fuel consumption. The CBF1000F features a four-position windscreen, three-position seat and adjustable handlebars.

The new CBF1000F genuine Honda accessories available include, luggage, heated grips, alarm and U-lock. It will be available in four new colours – Pearl Nightstar Black, Quasar Silver Metallic, Pearl Cool White and Pearl Amber Yellow - all finished-off withblack-finished engine covers and six-spoke wheels. The price of the CBF1000F is anticipated to be around £9,000.

It is expected to have an Autumn launch date in Honda Dealers.

Ride safe
