2012 Honda CBR1000RR | Quick Look

2012 Honda Motorcycle

The red, white and blue HRC graphics shown above are now available on Honda’s 2012 CBR1000RR.

Sadly, the absolutely spectacular C-ABS computer controlled anti-lock braking system is only available on the red model, forcing an unfortunate choice on the buyer.

For 2012, the CBR1000RR has a new Balance-Free rear shock, Big Piston fork, new wheels, updated EFI settings, and a new cockpit display.

Comfortable ergonomics and powerful, yet still manageable, the CBR1000RR is tough to beat, especially as a streetbike.
