2016 Honda CBR1000RR

Although falling a bit behind on the World Superbike circuit, the Honda CBR1000RR is still an impressive street-going superbike.

The CBR1000RR has a Balance-Free rear shock, Big Piston fork, new wheels, updated EFI settings, and a modern cockpit display. Comfortable ergonomics and powerful, yet still manageable, the CBR1000RR is tough to beat, especially as a streetbike. The spectacular C-ABS computer controlled anti-lock braking system is available as a $1000 option.
