Honda CB1000r 2018

I am very interested in this new model, could be my next bike, I'm due for a change in May 2018 as I rarely keep a bike more than 3 years.

Personally I do not care for this "cafe racer" hype.
But that's just me as I put functionality before form/looks anytime.

What I like with the new CB1000R is that it seems to be based on the same concept as "our" bike - the GSXS.

Using an "old" R-engine as "base", and add some modern electronics and a TFT-display.

This is why I also consider this model, but for now I will stick with my GSXS.

I like the look of it. Good time to be a motorcyclist.

Certainly pretty impressive at first glance, I think it is has a quality look to it. I wouldn't mind having a ride for the sake of it....

However,I too not into the cafe racer bike look/ scene - but most of all it's not a Suzuki. Suzuki are unique - functional, simple, reliable good looking and easy to maintain. Hondas are more expensive, usually over rated, not as easy to run or as simple as Suzuki and lack value for money we all take for granted with Suzuki's. Just my opinion.

Honda being Honda, this newbie 2nd Gen will feel exactly the same as the outgoing model BUT every nut bolt washer will be different (and we in AU haven't had the CB1000R since the original in that sickly olive green flopped).
If you have ridden that first released one, and C & G's all I think has happened in what 10 (?) year's, you will be knowable about what you are to receive.
My money would go to the Kawasaki 900RS in the Z1 colour, but that's just me thinking and knowing Honda, the new CB will be characterless like the CBR1000RR, but will do the expected role.
I wonder if Suzuki's Back Shed is morphing the GSXS1000 into a retro GS1000G for a point of difference in the Market. The Big Bore Bandit Market is still out there Suzuki, patiently waiting.

A few things I don't like about it are the stupid rear fender, the smaller fuel tank and fuel consumption.
The seat is a bit higher too which could be a problem for me.
I like the headlight and the aluminium facets on the engine cases and the rear sprocket plus the electronic gismos.
It is looking to the future in a retro style, if that makes sense, and Retro seems to be the thing at the moment.

I have never owned a Kawasaki but the seat is higher still and the bike is more Retro than the Honda. However it is also on my list to try out. Yes who knows what Suzuki are up to - interesting times!

The best thing about the new Honda is how much weight it shed compared to last generation. Same with the ninja 400. Weighs 3 lbs less than the 300cc. Awesome!
