Honda Upcoming Bikes | CB1000R | Price, Specifications, Images

Honda has teased the 2021 CB1000R via a short clip online. Though the updates aren't substantial, the CB1000R does get a couple of design tweaks for a sharper look. The distinctive horse-shoe LED DRL has been updated to look sleeker. The Honda badging within the headlight also appears to be smaller. The entire headlight assembly has been raked to give it a sportier look. It even seems to get a flyscreen as standard. 
The side panels too have been restyled and so have the alloys which now feature W-spoke wheels. The engine, on the other hand, is expected to comply with both Euro 5 and BS6 emission norms. In its current state of tune, the motor develops 145.48PS at 10,500rpm and 104Nm at 8250rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Electronic rider aids on the current BS4 model include ride-by-wire throttle, three rider modes and custom settings. Power (P), Engine Brake (EB) and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) are also part of the list. 

Honda CB1000R is expected to launch in India in August 2021 in the expected price range of ₹ 15,00,000 to ₹ 16,00,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to CB1000R are Honda Africa Twin, BMW R Nine T Scrambler & Harley-Davidson PAN America 1250. Another bike similar to CB1000R is Indian FTR 1200 which is launching in August 2021 in India.

The Honda CB1000R is a litre-class naked street bike which is the successor to the CB1000R Hornet previously sold in the country. It boasts of Honda’s new design language called ‘Neo Sports Café’ which was first showcased as a concept during the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The biggest highlight of the motorcycle is its styling. It has a minimalistic look with a sculpted fuel tank, brushed aluminium radiator covers and a front fender, complete with a round LED headlamp. It also gets a single-sided swingarm which adds to its style quotient.

The previous BS4 edition of the motorcycle packed ample modern features like a quirky full-colour TFT display for the instrument console. Other features were ride-by-wire, traction control, ABS and four riding modes. Notably, all these gizmos are likely to be retained in the upcoming version, besides the possibility of it getting more features. The hardware might also be the same with fully-adjustable inverted forks for the front and a monoshock unit for the rear from Showa. For braking, there are 310mm twin-discs up front and a single 256mm disc for the rear.

This innovative design hooks up tight to get all the CB1000R power to the ground, yet still offers a light pull at the clutch lever. Plus, the slipper design helps mitigate wheel hop during aggressive downshifts and deceleration.


The CB1000R 998cc DOHC four-cylinder engine uses an architecture and layout proven on Honda’s Superbikes. Forged (not cast) pistons make it as strong as it is powerful.


We call it the rider triangle—where your butt hits the seat, where your feet rest on the pegs, and where your hands grip the bar. By opening up the triangle on the CB1000R you sit up a little straighter, which gives you a higher vantage point. Plus, most riders will find it a little more comfortable, too.


The CB1000R is a standout both when it comes to performance and how it looks. And it hasn’t just been dipped in black paint either—we use special black plating and black anodizing on parts like the front suspension, rear subframe, swingarm-pivot plates, handlebar clamp, the entire exhaust system, and more. You can see in the photos how it looks—and it looks even better in person.
