The Honda CBF1000
is a touring sports model motorcycle
with a water-cooled, 4-stroke, inline 4 cylinder
, 1000 cc engine based on the Honda CBR1000RR engine.
First available from March 2006 to mainly the European market, the machine has both Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) and an air injection system, providing exceptionally smooth riding from low to high rpm ranges. In addition, its adjustable seat matches the rider for extra riding comfort.
The CBF1000 includes a combined anti-lock braking system as standard. Produced by Honda subsidiary Honda Italia Industriale S.P.A. (Italy), the machine is expected to provide an annual European sales projection of 10,000 units during 2006/2007.
In designing this machine, Chief designers Ishu Akari and Magnus Jaderberg targeted riders in the over-30 age group, who prefer roll-on acceleration combined with a more relaxed riding position and easy all-round handling. Rather than using the CBR1000RR’s high-revving performance, the CBF’s development team concentrated on finding ways to maximise its value as a machine that could be used on a daily basis. Although peak power and torque figures are significantly lower than the CBR1000RR Fireblade on which it is based, power and torque come on much sooner and lower in the rev range giving the CBF1000 "usable" power.
The CBF1000 also features an adjustable seat, adjustable handlebars, and a combined half-fairing with adjustable screen height. Read More
