We’re all familiar with the Honda CBR1000RR by AD Koncept and the French tuners are now widening our motorcycles & bunnies universe with the introduction of a new Playboy version, this time of the Honda CB1000R.
The first thing that stands out at this attractive streetfighter is the white paintjob (rims included) “spiced” with attractive graphics, including the famous Playboy logo. Also, we shouldn’t forget about the aftermarket accessories such as the engine spoiler, solo seat, rear fender and Rizoma kit composed from footpegs, crash pads, handles and many more.
By replacing the stock silencer with a SC Project GP Evo one and removing the catalizer, the overall weight was reduced with 20 lbs and the engine’s power was increased with 5hp.
We like both the CBR1000RR and CB1000R AD Koncept creations, but simply can’t understand why there aren’t any bunnies around.
If the owner of this naked motorcycle (most likely a Honda CB1300) plans to be undetected by police radars after completely foiling the thing, then I’m waiting to hear about the results. Until then, it looks ridiculous and useless even as a form of modern art.
Believe it or not, this here is actually a 2015 Honda CB 750 concept bike, a machine that shares nothing with the original one which, by the way, we consider much better. Designed by Igor Chak, the concept drifts away from the simple technology and elegant design, but we’d still have nothing against it if, apart from the on-board computer with multi-touch display and four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine working with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, the bike would have looked less like a…brick.
The designer claims infinite electronically tuning possibilities for almost every single feature of the bike (front and rear suspension, drive mode etc) with sensors show readouts updating every 1/10 seconds even while on the way, but what’s the point of the massive bodywork? Wasn’t this thing supposed to be at least a naked bike?
Under the motto “The Power of Dreams”, Honda caries on the legend of the Super Four, now with this CB1300SF.
Created for the Japanese TV, the ad can be promoted around the world as they don’t talk much, but the images do share information on the bike’s performance and life-long engineering. Don’t you simply forget about air flow when seeing a CB model?
The aim of the project XESS is none other than to show the customers of the Japanese brand of the possibilities offered by this powerful naked. The CB1000R was exhibited at last year’s EICMA show in Milan, a model that captivated all those who visited Honda’s booth. Here’s Honda’s press release: The XESS (eXtreme European Streetfighter Styling) version of the CB1000R draws on the most extreme potential of this new Naked streetfighter’s intensely aggressive power. It focuses the customer’s (...) More
Even though everybody was enthusiastic about the prototype’s evolution and most of all about the unique idea, the answer for the question on everyone’s lips is No.
The reason why the motorcycling public will be so disappointed is related to financial issues. No matter how thinks would have gone for this truly excellent concept the actual buyer wouldn’t have been satisfied at all. Nobody is happy to find out that the bike won’t see the production line, but would they be happy to pay big money for it?
This is what the bike’s designer, Koji Miwa explains: “If we send the CB1100R to the market as it is, the price will be very expensive, because we selected high-quality parts. I want this bike to be on sale as a regular model. I don’t want this bike to be a kind of limited specially-made machine.”
Stunning Performance Naked style, breathtaking acceleration, light, responsive handling and invigorating thrills at every twist of its throttle. The new CB1000R packs full-blooded litre-class Super Sports performance into a compact, spare and muscular-looking form that speaks of good times and fast friends, blasting down the avenue in search of excitement in the bright lights.
Honda Cb750 is one of the most important bikes of the 70s. The bike is considered to be the original superbike because of its extraordinary features: large motorcycle to combine speed, luxury and reliability at a small price.
