New CB1000R Black Edition 2023
TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Step out of the shadows, to the ultimate in stealth style.
While the CB1000R is a motorcycle hewn into purposeful beauty, the CB1000R Black Edition goes further. Much further. It has been designed, not by bright light but in shadow, crafted for the purest thrill. And defined by darkness. Look at it. Your eyes have to adjust, at first glance; apart from a few machined aluminium details, everything on show is deep black. Or blacker still. Loaded with choice accessories, it rides under any radar and stands way, way out as it does.
GIVE IN TO DESIRE
Now is not time to hold back.
This should not be a rational moment. Why should it be? It’s an instinct. No, more than that. An overwhelming sense. From nowhere, out of the furthest shadows now that you’ve seen it, you know you have to have it. Wrapped in the richest, blackest finish possible you’ve arrived, magnetically drawn and heart thumping, eyes wide with desire, in a very select space. We call it the CB1000R Black Edition.
Three-level quick shifter
The adjustable quick shifter allows instant, full-throttle, clutch-less upshifts and also aids downshifts. The sensitivity of shifting load can be adjusted between soft, medium and hard.
While the standard CB1000R’s curvaceous aluminium subframe wears a natural finish, the Black Edition’s, of course, is black, along with dark-anodised radiator shrouds and airbox covers.
Detachable seat cowl
Further underlining the compact minimalism of the CB1000R Black Edition, the Graphite Black pillion seat cowl slots into place when riding solo.
5-inch TFT screen with Honda Smartphone Voice Control system
For easy management of navigation, calls, messages and music while you’re riding (available with Android™ devices only).
Tuned for high performance, and sound, the 4-2-1 exhaust system also wears a jet-black coating. It couldn’t be anything else.
