Honda CBR 1000F

This touring bike had a production run of 10 years from 1987 to 1997. Horsepower rated at 135 with a top speed of 155 mph. In the May 1991 issue of Cycle magazine this superbike was compared to three other bikes and turned in a 0-60 time of 2.75 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 10.75 seconds. Very impressive for a 518 lb. superbike. This CBR has a comprehensive dashboard, excellent lights, brakes, comfy saddle, bungee hooks, passenger grab rail and a center stand. CBR 1000FThe CBR was restyled 1989 with new fairing bodywork and crash bungs and again in 1993. Later versions came equipped with a linked braking system. The front brake lever in the Dual Combined Braking System (DCBS) operates the front calipers but also proportionally applies the rear brake, while using the rear brake will engage one front caliper. This Honda has comfortable riding position, good build quality, and respectable handling. The Honda’s contemporary rivals were the Kawasaki ZZ-R1100 and the Suzuki GSX-R1100. As a touring motorcycle, the Honda CBR1000F (btw-CBR stands for Closed Body Racer) offers a nice plush ride for two people and can be a deceptively fast motorcycle. However, when pushed hard the rear shocks can get a little bouncy. Later models feel more durable and better finished than the early ones.
