Honda have ke pt it old sc hool with the newcaféracer inspired CB thou’ but is it tea and toast or champagne and foie gras?


It’s easy to think that a fairingless, street bike with big handlebars and a Fireblade engine is nothing new. And with as thriving a ‘super-naked’ sector as there currently is, who is going to get hard over an updated CB1000R? Well, not me, but thankfully erectile dysfunction, on this occasion, isn’t going to be a problem as Honda haven’t just thrown ABS and a few new colour schemes at an outdated model, they have gone back to the drawing board and completely reinvented the wheel.

Okay it’s still the running the same 2006 ‘Blade engine as its predecessor, but that’s where the similarities end (and even that isn’t that similar); in fact the Big H haven’t just gone down the already well blazed trail of the naked sports bike. Instead, they have created a sort of hybrid machine that is somewhere between a café racer of the past and a hyper naked of the future, a theme they have christened ‘Neo Sports Café’.
