Honda has announced its CB1000R for 2021. The litre-class naked motorcycle also gets a new version called the Black Model, along with several improvements.
Changes require headlight tweaks, where it maintains its overall shape but is at a more direct angle than the outgoing model’s flat-looking device. In comparison, now the Honda brand that separates the LED circle looks smaller. Honda has opted for a new concept for the alloy wheel. The organisation has also reworked the shape of the panels around the fuel tank and radiator.
The Black Version contains numerous blacked-out components, as its name suggests. This version has the headlight bezel, windscreen, fork mounts, radiator shrouds finished in black, alongside the Deep Graphite Black colour scheme.
The Honda Mobile Voice Control interface, attached to a new full-color, 5.0-inch TFT panel, features both the CB1000R and the CB1000R Black Model. The engine and gearbox remain the same and the performance figures remain the same, but Honda said it now “offers better transmission and reaction from updated fuel-injection settings.”
