Honda CB1000

Everyone's getting in on the naked bike segment...

If it has the engine and suspension of the new CBR1000RR, then

looks ok. i wish they would have taken a little more time with the design. it looks as if they just unbolted the fairings and left them off. but you are right about the suspension and engine. that would make up for the design shortcomings.

Nope, both engine and suspensions are from the "old" (read: yesteryear) CBR1000RR.

I can assure you those are good enough, I had the chance to test it and the chassis is wow. The engine is great - on par with the more sport-oriented nakeds like the Triple or the MV Brutale, not really with the K/R or Suzuki B-King, but it literally stomps over the Kawi Z.
