CB1000R
I almost bought one of these instead of the 1100, loved the specs, loved the look, but after testing riding both...it just didn't fit my body 200+ lb body...still would love to have one.

RE: CB1000R
These things didn't seem to do that well in terms of sales. Our local dealer had a red white and blue one that sat there since 2013 (yeah, I know right) and was finally discounted $5k. Was very tempted to pick it up, as they were nice bikes.

RE: CB1000R
I swore I was going to get the CB1000R after I sold my CB1100. The CB1100 has terrible driveline slop and snatchy fueling. All the reviews said the CB1000R had no slop and perfect fueling. But , in person the bike is very plastic and cheap looking with the ugliest fairing/headlight (in my opinion). If that doesnt bother you it gets rave reviews and ,like kmoney says, they are dirt cheap . New ones in Wichita for $7995.00 last time I searched.

??? You're serious? Terrible driveline slop simply means your chain was massively out of adjustment. Snatchy fueling...that could be the first time I've read that complaint on this forum, and I've read nearly every post and reply. Count me baffled Huh

Yeah I didn't notice that at all. But I will say this, all fuel injected bikes have more sensitive throttles than carbs. So I am not overly sensitive to that. My bikes have often had some driveline lash, but having grown up on dirt bikes, not an issue for me either. I like the CB1000R myself. Just a motor and wheels. I'm in.

RE: CB1000R
I met a guy on Youtube who has one in Germany since 2012. Still have it?, I asked. Yup, he said. It's a white onboard video. I'll see if I can find it.

Stop guessing and read it again. I did not like the looks of the bike when I saw it in person. It drove GREAT. Fueling was excellent and the driveline was as smooth as my old 919. Now I want the new 2018 that they changed the looks on drastically.
