2008 Honda CBR1000RR


A far better bike than most riders will ever need or use


Coolant hose clamp recall.

Clutch recall.

General Comments:

Handles very, very well.

The brakes are quite good, though I did not get the ABS linked brake version (09).

Acceleration is smooth and extremely powerful.

Comfort is not bad, but I'm not tall (at 5'7") and I bought the "E-seat". I like the looks too, except the Klingon Battle Cruiser taillight assembly.

Lots of modification parts available.

Could use a more conventional fuel gauge instead of the digital "amount used" and warning light at reserve.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
