The CB1000R's styling cues are borrowed from the 2007 CB600F Hornet. The engine is a detuned version of the 2007 CBR1000RR engine, and produces about 81.61 kW (109.44 hp) at the rear wheel. The front suspension uses a 43 mm (1.7 in) inverted HMAS cartridge-type telescopic fork with stepless preload with compression/rebound adjustments and 110 mm (4.3 in) travel. The rear is a monoshock with gas-charged HMAS damper with 10-step preload and stepless rebound damping adjustment and 130 mm (5.0 in) axle travel.
In November 2017, Honda unveiled the new iteration of the CB1000R, along with the CB125R and CB300R. The bike uses a new styling direction dubbed as Neo Sports Café. This design language has been applied before to the CB150R ExMotion and then applied to the CB650R, the successor of the CB650F.
