Honda’s new CBF1000F now available

27th August 2010 Print

Honda have announced that the stylish new member of the popular CBF1000 family – the CBF1000FA – is now available from official Honda dealers priced at £8,875 OTR (including road and registration taxes).

Originally designed and launched in 2006 as a superb all-round machine for riders who wanted performance, reliability, capability and, all at a reasonable cost, the CBF1000 soon won a legion of fans. They appreciated the machine’s high specification, robustness, ability to mould itself to the rider’s proportions and provide exciting yet manageable handling for riders with a variety of experience.

This latest addition to the family gives this unrivalled versatility a stylish new edge, giving the look of this new model a more compact, sporty feel, while keeping all the attributes that continue to make the CBF1000 family a huge success.

The new CBF1000FA features a sporty, single exhaust end-can to its 998cc Fireblade-derived motor, which is tuned for torque, but features slightly higher compression ratio to the existing CBF1000 range and around 10bhp more. Despite this increased power, Honda’s frugal PGM-FI system makes the CBF1000F still more fuel-efficient. The machine 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 reputed Combined ABS (C-ABS) system is equipped as standard on the UK’s CBF1000F to further enhance the machine’s safety and performance.

The sporty edge to the CBF1000FA continues in the styling 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. Sporty can still mean comfy, as the CBF1000FA features a four-position windscreen, three-position seat and adjustable handlebars, as well as six-spoke wheels.

The current range includes the CBF1000 model, available in both standard and ABS versions priced at £7,075 and £7,575 (OTR) respectively, with the CBF1000GT, which features fairing lowers and a three-box luggage system, priced at £8,425 (OTR). The new CBF1000FA is available in two colours – Pearl Nightstar Black and Pearl Cool White, and can be even further enhanced with a host of genuine Honda accessories including luggage (top box and panniers both in two size options), heated grips, engine/casings covers, alarm, outdoor cover, U-lock, tank pad and centre stand.
