'21 CB1000r Black Edition...
There are some things I like, others I don't.What the ****?
This is treason! Lol...😂
So how’s it go compared to the gsxs?
The Gsxs is a great bike, that's why after 5 years I still have it. Just wanted something different to go with it.Very nice bike.
I was going to buy it but due to covid their price skyrocketed in Australia. I found Gixes more value for money.
Now after a year, I am happy with my decision.
I just heard CB1000R is not continued in Australia.
What I really wanted was a BMW RnineT, but just couldn't justify the coin the new ones cost. A friend bought a new Triumph Speed Twin, and while it's a fun bike, it just doesn't check the boxes for me.Sexy bike for sure but surprised you went with another naked that's very similar in riding style.
I ended up getting a 2012 Triumph Thunderbird cruiser that now shares the garage with my GSX ... it's an awesome bike that's a whole different experience.
Thanks. I think for me it was just the Neo Sports Cafe style that caught my attention. I really don't feel that it's a better bike than the GSXS and even with the extra goodies, probably doesn't warrant that much extra cost. If I didn't already have the Suzuki, I probably would have gone that route.
You might just decide to keep the Z after getting some seat time. My BIL bought a used one that already had a full exhaust fitted and he loves it.That's a good picture you posted up Reagenn. I am sure you will be now cross comparing it against the GSX-S. That's a given.
My Honda Dealer has a White CB1KR in stock. Actually, it arrived long ago in January 21. It was one that could not be sold in the EU and UK after Euro 5 emission time extension ran out on 1st Jan 21.
They have had zero interest in it as far as I know, being parked in the corner of the shop showroom. It may have been fire sale lately sold as I forgot to look last weekend while I was there.
This Monday, I added a 2022 Kawasaki Z900RS in Dark Metallic Blue to my garage as the good old SV650 was la bit lonely.
It will most probably do till the 2022 GSX-S1K Naked arrives here in March 2022 or the GT the month after. Probably go for the bagless GT if the Kwaki gels or the Naked if not.
I am getting to know the bike better, but one issue the bike has in common with the CB1KR is the length of the fuel tanks distance. If you look hard at the Honda in the picture, draw a vertical line up from the pegs. The tank is about 50 to 70 mm too long past the peg line, and that space has been pinched from the seat. The pegs should be mid point of the Rider seat for comfort.
Hence why the seat cushion ramps up on the tank as I found I wanted to sit on the tank. The Z900RS has the same style over function, but not so extreme a case as I experienced with the Honda.
Hopefully, Reagenn has the body shape to suit it, long arms and short legs and none of what I said takes the shine of a good bike.
Here's a picture of my Z

Is definitely a beautifully put together machine I took my 2020 GSXS 1000ZAMO out yesterday for a ride as I was running a little late and every time I start and ride my bike makes me appreciate I decided to spend the cash and buy my bike. Each ride brings a smile 😃 and so many people tell me nice bike.. this bike in this picture will get a thousand compliments the build is unique and I'm sure it's plenty fast enough to be killed on..
