CB1000R is it coming or not?

Has there been a definitive answer? I will need to get my name on the Ducati wait list if they not sending a beloved Honda CB1000R.

Not sure if you guys are getting one, but over here they have already been released I believe...

I saw one on the road a few weeks back on an 09 Plate...

The expense and the trouble to go through. If the DOT ctaches it, you either pay for it to be tested or they destroy it. Testing is $50,000+.

Why not get it set up for your state before you import it?

You have to prove it meets the fedeal requirements. Either the manufacturer has to provide the proof, or you have to pay the gov't to inspect it. There are a few companies that can do the modifications for you and then report back that it is in compliance to the DOT.

Re: CB1000R is it coming or not?

Its really easy to import something over here... Get an SVA test, pay a small fee and you are issued with a number plate and a log book.

Re: CB1000R is it coming or not?

Not so in the US. Some people bring gray market vehicles in without going through the process. There are times they are caught and all of the motorcycles that are in the container are destroyed.

So, one could try ti import one and not go through the legal process, but if you get caught, the bike you just paid for is destroyed. So if you paid $15,000 for it, that money is gone. If you go through the legal process, you pay the $15,000, then 1.5 times that as a bond. So a new total is $37,500. You still have to get it brought up to the standards NHTSA wants. The easy way is to get Honda USA to certify the vehicle meets NHTSA standards. I doubt you will get them to do that though; they have no vested interest in doing so.

Re: CB1000R is it coming or not?

I feel Honda could do well with the CB1k here in the US. In light of the aging population like me who cannot tolerate the extreme riding postion of the repli racers but who love the power.

Re: CB1000R is it coming or not?

I was lucky enough to have a CBR1000RR8 on loan from Honda for a couple of weeks, and it was a stonker-easy to ride, huge power output (compared to my 1996 RRS) BUT after 2.5 hours it was so uncomfortable-shoulders ached like mad, cramped legs, pumped up forearms. I cold never do 500 miles a day on it like i could my RRS.

Then Honda loaned me a CBF1000, which because of it's looks, I wanted to dislike from the outset. But the riding position and comfort made it a lot easier to ride than the RR-8 Blade, and over my usual 50 mile "test" route, took about the same on the CBF as it did on the RR-8.

I realise now I'm getting old, as comfort means more to me than looks and balls out power. Pass my pipe and slippers please...................
