Confirmed: Honda CBF1000F to Enter British Market

In early April we were reporting that the Honda CBF1000 might become available in the UK this year, though the manufacturer still had second thoughts about this decision. Now, Honda released a statement confirming the new CB1000F will join its motorcycle line-up this autumn.

Originally designed and launched in 2006, this latest addition offers a more compact, sporty feel, thanks to its single exhaust end-can of its 998cc Fireblade-derived motor, which offers an extra 10 bhp.

“Despite this increased power, Honda’s frugal PGM-FI system makes the CBF1000F 7% more fuel-efficient. The 1000F also utilises a new aluminium frame, replacing the steel original, which with improved suspension and adjustability, delivers even better handling and lighter weight. In addition, Honda’s revolutionary Combined ABS (C-ABS) system further enhances the machine’s safety and performance,” a company statement reads.

The sporty look to the CBF1000F continues with a racier, slimmer look to the half-fairing and a sporty new dash layout. This includes a large, central analogue rev-counter and digital speedometer along with practical touches such as dual trip meters and fuel gauge, which also shows both real-time and average fuel consumption.

The CBF1000F also features a four-position windscreen, three-position seat and adjustable handlebars.

The new CBF1000F will also come with a host of genuine Honda accessories available, including luggage, heated grips, alarm and U-lock. It will be available in four new colours – Pearl Nightstar Black, Quasar Silver Metallic, Pearl Cool White and Pearl Amber Yellow - all finished-off with cool black-finished engine covers and six-spoke wheels.

The price of the CBF1000F is expected to be around £9,000, with further details to be announced closer to the market launch.
