We don’t usually focus on the sportbike market here at Outland Moto. But when we saw this bike, we had to take the chance to photograph it. The Honda CBR1000RR is a special bike. It is one of those motorcycles that Honda releases every once in a while that excites the entire riding community. It invokes the sense of style and power that came with the Honda RC45 and others.
Here are the short facts about this bike. It weighs in at 422 lbs, dry. Couple that with a substantial 147bhp and 76 pound feet of torque, and you get a motorcycle that begs to move….and move quickly. And Honda didn’t ignore the looks either. This bike looks fast even when it is sitting still.
Does the bike have a practical use? I guess that is for the rider to determine. But for those that want a flagship in the sportbike market, this motorcycle is definitely worth considering.
