Honda recently unveiled the India-bound 2021 CB1000R. In a sea of litre-class naked streetfighters, the Honda CB1000R manages to stand out, all thanks to its Neo-Sport Café design which fuses futuristic elements with some visual flair dating back to the years gone by.
Despite being Euro5 compliant now, the motorcycle continues to make 143bhp and 103 nm from its 998cc inline-four engine. To transfer all this power to the rear wheel, the engine of the bike is paired with 6-speed chain drive gearbox. The bike also gets rider assist features like Throttle By Wire (TBW) with 3 preset riding modes: P (Power), EB (Engine Brake) and HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control) and a raw-edged exhaust for a sporty feel.
