Posted on by  

The Honda CBF1000 has a lot to love. For the starters features an elegant design language, with a modern fairing, sporty headlights and an aerodynamic windscreen. You also get a sculpted fuel tank and a pretty spacious 3-step adjustable seat that keeps you comfortable even when you have to deal with long journeys.

At the heart of the Honda CBF1000 lies a 998 cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, inline-4 engine that cranks out a maximum output of 79kW at 9,000 and 96 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine features a modern PGM-FI system and is paired with a six speed transmission. It is also worthy of being mentioned that it is fed by a 19 liters (including 4 litre reserve) fuel tank.

The motorcycle’s speed is kept in leash by Honda’s Combined Antilock Brake System which keeps you safe over variable road conditions.
