How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

Hello,
i`m from thailand and about to buy a 2012 CBR1000rr the problem i have is that there are some different versions available here and i need a way to find out what version the bike is i want to buy.
can someone tell me please what i need and where i can look to find out if its a US, EU, or Japan spec.
the thing i found out is that the japan spec has reduced power compared to the US and EU version i know its possible to "respec" from japan to US version but i would like to buy a US version where everything is at full power by stock, without any mods.


the only way i can think of is by checking the chassis number and find it out somehow, please let me know if someone know the right way.


Thanks Vincent

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

As JB says the VIN number will identify the bike, once you identify a bike you are interested in a call to your nearest Honda dealer is your best bet, they'll check it on their system and let you know which market the bike was built for.

Good luck and welcome to the forum!

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

You might want to confirm that as I think I heard that some US models had HISS. Since I don't have it I didn't research it much.

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

I might obscure the last few digits...just in case.

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

Why should he obscure the digits? Is someone from Thailand going to stalk these forums and steal his bike because he posted the VIN ? They could do it just as well without a VIN right? Anyone can see the VIN on a motorcycle as it's readily exposed for any passerby to see

In fact over here, you can run a registration search for free based on the licence plate online and it will tell you what the associated VIN of that vehicle should be. It's not meant to be a huge secret.

That being said, all we need is the first few digits JH2SCXXXXXX anyway, as the remaining are production sequence numbers and of no use except to the factory if there was an issue.

If you advertise the bike for sale, people want the VIN and every vehicle listing includes the full VIN. How many times have people provided their VIN even on this forum to see how many were sold. The Erion Edition 929 comes to mind.

This should be the digit that says which market it is for.

Maybe some of our American riders can confirm, but that looks like it's from the US market:

You said it has no HISS right? So then it's most likely from the USA.

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

I don't know how the scam worked but people were running a VIN scam with cars. I heard about it from a friend who obscured their VIN plate.

Re: How to find out what spec this CBR1000RR is

But VIN's are posted all over the place, on the Internet and it is a requirement that they are visible. So if someone wanted to steal VIN's, all they have to do is walk around a parking lot and collect them. They could go to any listing site (eBay included) to gather them.

Since they already know the first part, they can even guess the last part.

This is why I asked my friend why they had something on the dashboard covering the VIN. As I understand, it's illegal to do so but they retorted that they would rather deal with an ornery cop than someone getting their VIN.
