Last year, Honda introduced the CB1000R stateside, a machine that was quickly categorized into the naked sportbike/street fighter genre.
Although naked sportbikes are not as popular in America as they are overseas, the CB 1000 R became a popular model, mostly due to its streetability and bold looks.
Due to its popularity, Honda returns with the CB1000 R for 2012 with the only upgrade being a new matte gray metallic color. All else remains the same, which will likely please CB fans. The 2012 CB1000R has its roots in the 1969 Honda CB750 KO, which was the first mass-market inline four sportbike. The 2012 model arrives with fuel-injected four-cylinder 998cc powerplant tuned for torque, making acceleration a priority.
