For the 2020 model year, Honda has given a minor cosmetic update to its CB1000R. The bike now gets blacked-out treatment on parts that were previously finished in silver in the earlier model.
Apart from that, there is a new black triple clamp and stem along with a black headlight surround. There’s also a new silver strip running at the centre of the fuel tank. Honda has also introduced a new Matte Pearl Glare White colour scheme for a fresh look.
All these changes are incorporated in both the standard and plus variants of the bike. Mechanically, the rest of the bike remains untouched. It has the same 999cc, inline four-cylinder engine that puts out 141.4bhp at 10,500rpm and 104Nm of torque at 8,250rpm.
Other interesting features are-
- Full-colour TFT instrument cluster
- Ride-by-wire throttle
- Traction control
- Four riding modes
- Showa USD forks at the front
- Showa monoshock at the rear
Honda CB1000R woo in customers by its retro-modern looks and it will continue to do so in 2020.
