New 2012 Honda CBR1000RR


There’s big news when it comes to the new 2012 Honda CBR1000RR. The CBR1000RR is already the essential Superbike, offering a perfectly integrated combination of power, handling, and overall balance for both the street and the track. But this year we’ve taken this versatile machine and given it some major upgrades. New suspension, new bodywork, new instrumentation, new wheels—and that’s just the start. All that in addition to its famously powerful 999cc liquid-cooled inline-four-cylinder engine and all-aluminum twin-spar chassis.

The future’s looking bright indeed—at least if you’re looking at it from behind the bars of a new 2012 CBR1000RR.

New Suspension
The CBR1000RR features new suspension front and rear. Up front, the new 43mm “Big Piston” Showa fork is smoother and more responsive; in the back, the Unit Pro Link design uses a new Balance Free Rear shock that uses a double-tube design for a smoother response and better road-holding feel (traction performance).

New LCD Instrumentation
The CBR1000RR’s new, full-screen LCD instrumentation includes a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.

Revolutionary doesn’t begin to describe these brakes
The Combined ABS (C-ABS) system is the first of its kind on a Superbike. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well they work. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.

Hot Wheels
New for 2012, we've added 12-spoke aluminum cast wheels, for a lightweight design that promises superb handling and a new layered outer cowl with a rigid inner cowl that reduces fairing weight and creates a dynamic form.

[Honda]

Re: New 2012 Honda CBR1000RR

The moment I saw this the other day on a website I knew instantly what my next bike would be.

I wanted (Still do really like it) the BMW s1000rr I love the power that bike has, but the 2012 1000rr is it. I love the look, they really refined the bike and made it much better.

Now I just gotta figure out how to pay for it.

Re: New 2012 Honda CBR1000RR

I loved it from the moment I saw it at the dealer show here in NY (January).
The 08-11 CBR1K is an amazing bike, but only lacked in the limits of the suspension, and asthetically many didn't like the nose (I didn't have an issue with it).

It's facinating that Honda didn't go big HP like some of the other brands (BMW, Kawasaki etc), and also omitted any sort of traction control. Personally I'm happy with the lack of TC, do we really need this? I'd like to see them on par with Kawasaki in the HP department. I rode an 11 ZX10R last summer at least 10 times, it is an amazing bike, the HP is addictive for sure. Nice rebates on the 11 Kawa's and Suzooks right now = temptation.
