Re: CB 1300 naked bike
Onda, did you see in this weeks MCN that one was entered in last weeks Suzuka 8hr.
Had bikini race fairing, headlight behind the screen, belly pan, and single seat cowl. Bigger tankTuned to about 150bhp, USD forks etc. really lovely looking thing.
Good news is that Honda are putting it into production as the CB1300R with about 135bhp and slightly lower spec suspension.
Being a bit of a naked bike fan, I do enjoy my 600 Hornet, I would be tempted by this much bigger brother. Just what I've always wanted - a top quality naked bike. As much power as you'll need but good handling and brakes. Like you I'm getting a little concerned about speeding. I was recently happily hammering along at 125 mph through a ludicrous rural 50 limit. Only when I got home did I start to think about teh consequences of a pull. At least a year ban, big, big fine and possibly a prison sentence. My Hornet starts to get a bit like hard work over 100mph..
