Best 1000 Sport Bike of all time
By Duane Mathess(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
I bought my Silver and Black 2008 Honda CBR1000RR in May 2008. I could not be happier with it. The bike is lighter than two of the current 600 sportbikes and handles even better. The bike has phenominal flickability and can out accelerate just about anything on the market. The midrange is down r... Read Full Review

Definately puts the "fun in "fun factor"
By Chris Knox(Owner), Oct. 7, 2008
Comfort, power, speed and agility! This bike has it all. I am a guy that loves to travel and tour around. My last bike was a 2002 VFR 800 interceptor and I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing by looking at purchasing a CBR1000 due to the fact that I heard so many comments about how uncomfo...

Experienced racer/rider tells it like it is.
By David J Lee(Owner), Sep. 30, 2008
This bike is so good that it will make you think you just got better. Honda finally built the bike they needed to build and as soon as it came out I took it for a test ride. Granted you can't discover much about a sport bike on a test ride but I was amazed at how small and light it felt. It behav... Read Full Review

How can this be?!
By Mikhail(Owner), Sep. 27, 2008
Bought my silver and black in august. An awesome bike, easy to ride fast, yet fun and exiting.



Love the looks and the feel, the best bike I've ever ridden.



But there is a problem im having of the bike burning oil. At 3500 km it is around 250ml per 1000 km.



Honda is sorting it out as a war... Read Full Review

Great Bike, better tha the 2007
By Kevin Speese(Owner), Sep. 24, 2008
Upgraded from my 2007 CBR1000RR. I couldn't be more happy. Though the 2008 reportedly has less power than the 2007, I find it hard to believe. When getting on the gas, the tire spins up even at speed. The mid range is really strong if not too strong. The bike feels electric in that it is so smo... Read Full Review
