Another rumor about a new Honda CBR1000RR. You can almost set your clock to the rumors that surround Big Red’s future superbike offering, and there are several factors for this.


First, the Honda CBR1000RR is a woefully old machine, even in its “all-new” guise, the current model can trace its lineage back to the 2008 model year. Second, the Honda CBR1000RR is obviously underpowered when you make spec sheet comparisons, by a palpable 20hp/10% margin.

The Honda makes up for this by being one of the lightest superbikes on the market, and it is easily the best handling of the bunch. But even still, in our tests, we found it to be a second a lap slower than the rest of the superbike class…and the stopwatch decides all in this segment.

Despite all this, the real reason that we keep seeing rumors about a new CBR1000RR likely stems from one simple reason: Honda is working on a new machine. Will that new bike debut for 2019? 2020? 2021? Well, that’s the debate, and even a broken clock is correct twice a day, so…


The 2020 model year arrival is actually a pretty strong guess, considering that is when the Euro5 regulations will take affect that year in Europe for new motorcycle models. If Honda was going to bring to market a brand new 1,000cc sport bike, the 2020 model year would make the most sense.

If Young Machine’s renders can be believed, then the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR certainly looks the part. We have almost half years to wait in order to see what comes true. Until then…
