2012 Honda CBR1000RR

November - 7 - 2011

The CBR1000RR Honda has been very popular among bike lovers but especially in the MO offices where a model was tested. This model is placed in the top of its class because it has a light frame and a big mirage power. Four years after the launch Honda brings in 2012 some enhancements. Big modifications were made in the style of the bike and also in the suspension.

We are going to start with the suspension and we are going to tell you that in 2012 Honda brings some modifications especially in the front suspension. The modifications consist of a 43 mm  inverted Showa fork equipped with a technology which can be seen on Suzuki GSX-Rs and Kawasaki Ninjas known as Big Piston Fork. Because it has a large damping volume the hydraulic pressure is reduced.

Another modification made to the new Honda CBR1000RR is the aerodynamic. The concept followed for this model is the fair layering which basically means that a large pocket of air is concentrated around the bike and the rider which makes the motorcycle more aerodynamic and at the same time letting more air enter into the cooling system. The manufacturer has also added a chin spoiler at the front wheel in order to prevent the bike from launching when the driver goes at full or high speed.

The bike has a five level indicator incorporated in a LCD digital gauge. In the LCD gauge we can also find a gear position indicator and a lap timer. No changes were made at the motor of the CBR1000RR.

Other modification made by the manufacturer to the CBR1000RR is the ABS system. For the 2012 model the ABS system is more sporty, the break from the front has been modified in order to make is more appropriate for sport riding.

It is said that the new Honda CBR1000RR will be launched in December and that you will be able to purchase it in a variety of colors. The price starts at about 13.800 $ and grows according to what extra elements you want it to have. You can buy it in red, black, white, blue and white pearl. If you want to add the C-ABS version to your bike it will cost you about 1000 $ extra. For this type of ABS you can only buy it in red.

This is the CBR1000RR, we are looking forward to see it launched.
