Share this Article

Honda has officially unveiled the 2012 version of the CBR1000RR sportbike. Pictures of the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR actually leaked out last month from Hong Kong but official images and details are now out.

The 2012 Honda CBR1000RR receives new Showa Big Piston forks, a new double-tube design rear shock, revised fuel injection settings, updated nose and tail and new 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels. Also updated is a new multi-function display with gear position indicator, lap timer and tachometer. Not added however, and a disappointment to some enthusiasts, is traction control.

Pricing is $13,800 for the standard model, $14,800 with ABS. Look for the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR in showrooms in December. Check out our more detailed overview of the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR up as well as a look at other 2012 Honda models, or view a gallery of images after the jump.

    One of the last true literbikes out there where your right wrist and skill are the only factors saving you from a highside. No traction control to save your butt here.

    Not an excuse for Honda not keeping up with the competition but it’s interesting that the Honda is still competitive in shootouts without all the gadgets.

    Too many broken lines in the design, I didn’t like it much visually. And yes, no traction control to save your butt.
