For 2010 Honda has just announced a new CBR1000RR. The new 2010 motorcycle includes updated performance improvements as well as new styling cues and graphics. This is part of American Honda Motor Company’s Powersports Division announced today and is the third new release of 2010 motorcycle models. This on-road motorcycle release follows the earlier announcements of Honda’s 2010 Fury, scooters, dirt bikes and ATVs.
“We are very excited about announcing these four street bikes for 2010,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Within this mix we have a new cruiser, a new lightweight touring bike and two CBR sport bikes. The cruiser offers a whole new look for Honda, our new touring bike delivers lightweight, nimble handling, a stylish fairing plus saddlebags for the long haul or daily commute. The CBRs continue to set the standards of performance for the full-on sporting genre. This sets the stage for a great year in 2010 and there will be additional street model announcements later this fall.”
Originally released in 2008, the CBR1000RR has been known to be compact, lightweight, easy handling and has earned a reputation for being high performing with smooth power delivery. For 2009 Honda made the CBR1000RR available with our high-tech electronically controlled Combined ABS for the ultimate in sophisticated sport bike braking performance. For the new 2010 model Honda has added exciting new graphics plus engine changes that provide an even smoother power delivery.
Key new features include:
>> Increased-diameter flywheel for more inertia and improved performance.
>> Redesigned license plate stay for easier removal on track days.
>> New muffler cover for enhanced appearance.
The CBR1000RR will be available in pearl orange/light metallic silver and red/black. The C-ABS model will be available in black only. Honda has yet to determine dealer availability and MSRP.
