Honda has set the CB1000R equipped with a high-performance, water-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC in-line 4-cylinder 998cc engine in a lightweight and compact body, with a matte pearl glare white color scheme.

It is the same without tax.The release date is February 14. There are many on February 14.The exciting thing is that it is a made-to-order motorcycle. That’s because of the latter half of the 2019 motorcycle.
Usually, the order-made motorcycle is in the lineup of Gold Wing.Doesn’t that mean that CB1000R comes in limited edition?We wondered if there any reason?

2020 vs 2019 Red
Is the change the same as Black?
Maybe the 2021 model
There is a story that the CB1000R may undergo a minor change when conforming to EURO5, and what we currently know is that the exterior may change.
There are rumors about a full cowl model, but details are unknown details.
Will the model change in 2020 when the information came out (April 2019)?
But as mentioned above, the 2020 model is an only color change. So we think it’s probably a 2021 model change. It is a 2022 model at the latest, but we think that it comes as a 2021 model.
What we expect?
What we know at the moment that there are EURO5 conformance and exterior changes.If there’s a change in the exterior, it’s not just compliance with emissions regulations, but a minor change.
But do you have to change the equipment? Is there a cruise control? But it doesn’t feel like a cruise-control model.
We think there’s no possibility of just changing the exterior and complying with emissions regulations. It is more.
