Honda launches CB1000 Hornet with a more powerful design

Honda developed and brought customers the naked model CB1000R based on the platform of the CBR1000RR sportbike, but this year, the naked version of this model turned a new page when Honda had a new design called CB1000 Hornet.

Honda took the name “Hornet” to share the same line with CB750 Hornet (launched not long ago) and CB500 Hornet (newly released), thereby with this approach, Honda also abandoned the sport-anchor design on this car line. . The single swingarm on the CB1000R was also removed to make room for a double swingarm, giving the strong design of a street bike.

The new twin-spar steel frame will replace the backbone design on the CB1000R. The engine on the new CB1000 Hornet is based on the CBR1000RR platform but has been refined, including 3 modes, assist and slipper clutch, and HSTC traction control system. The suspension system includes Showa SFF-BP forks at the front and monoshock with Pro-Link structure at the rear.

The front brakes include 4-piston radial brakes with a pair of 310mm discs. The front and rear wheels are 17 inches with tires sized 120/70 and 180/55 respectively. The 5-inch TFT color screen can be connected to the phone via the Honda RoadSync app. The lights on the car are all LED.

Detailed specifications of the CB1000 Hornet have not been announced. In terms of power, Honda says that this engine produces more than 147.5 horsepower and more than 100 Nm of torque. There are no specifications on size and weight, and it is unclear whether the CB1000 Hornet will replace the CB1000R model or add to Honda’s naked line.
