Just delivered to join the stable.
2020 Honda CB1000R Plus (no its not an EV or Hybrid )
That as far as I'm concerned is one of the best looking bikes currently on sale. Congrats, enjoy it
Yeah. i did start making a kind of bellypan from the rest of the panels I had but my spray skills are shocking.
Yeah has been like that for a while now. Have put the full fairing back on for the time being, as all being well i'm heading to the NC500 on it in the first week of August
Everyone has to get their thrills somehow
I was planning to do a big write up on this bike but I'm far too lazy, so here's a picture of my 3 week old bike, the KTM Duke 890R:
It is absolutely perfect for me, having:
Lean sensitive and adjustable ABS!
The best brakes on the market
Great suspension that I haven't felt the need to change even a single click (a first for me)
280-320km (mountain roads-motorway) from a single 14L tank (the MT-10 got 190km from 16.5L)
181 kg wet weight (measured), 166kg dry weight (claimed)
V-Twin-like engine character and sound
119hp and 73 lb-ft torque
Top notch handling
LCD dash and full LED lights
Removable baffle despite being Euro 5
It's all the best bits of the Street Triple RS with a significant increase in torque, IMU controlled and adjustable ABS, full LED lights, and cruise control. A twin engine lets me be lazy and take hairpins in either 2nd or 3rd and still drive well out of the corner.
Just got my carbs back for my cbr400rr!!
Need to get them back on tonight, check it runs right, tidy the garage so I can get the thing out to the front, and see how it rides with fully working carbs
Planning a ride out tomorrow AM, so if it plays ball, I will be taking it out down to loomies, otherwise I will be out in the Hornet...
@Kreeeee stunning bud... I didn't know they done an 890R... Bet its a beast
Seriously tempted to get one of these. Considering handing back the RS and ending the PCP early, then going for one of these.... hmmmmmm
What does the RS not give you that you want from the 890?
Bought this 1975 TY80 mini, was supposed to be for my son but it’s too nice to be wrecked.
Now THAT is fantastic. Should be an absolute hoot.
I really like the look of that, I have to get this MSX straight, and back together to get me another project asap
Indeed, that is absolutely superb
Picked this up yesterday - CB650R (not the greatest picture)
Welcome to the club!, i've just sent my seat off to be reupholstered with memory foam and gel plus raised in height and recovered in new fabric, also getting the pillion turned into a cowl as it will only be me on it.
You will be complaining about the seat if you spend a decent amount of time on it.
These things look great in the flesh. Had a good look at one close up the other day and I'm impressed at the quality of these Honda's up close. Really nice bikes.
This is my first bike after passing my test last year.
I was weighing up going for new over used etc, but I'm really happy with what I got.
Just need to put the miles on it now.
@dalepearson what a gorgeous bike!
What a lovely first bike to have!
Looking good there, nearly bought a 650R a few times after riding them. You will enjoy it.
