I ran this bike for a couple of years and at the same time owned a VMAX (see separate review on this bike), so a more different pair of bikes you could not get. The CBR 1000 F is a do everything well kind of tool. It can tour, scratch and cruise. Mine was the red, blue and white one with 136 BHP. Despite being 20 years old when I acquired it, this bike was in a good standard condition except for the addition of a pair of aftermarket NEXUS end cans. It ran faultlessly and the gear box was as… Read Full Review

I currently own a 1993 US Model with 74,000 miles. As a former MSF Rider Coach, I have the luxury of ride testing many types of bikes. My first experience was when I was in Spain. I purchased a pre-loved 1991 European model with 90,000 kms and enjoyed her very much. Runs exceptionally well, the only thing I did was oil and filter changes for three years and the usual wear and tear maintenance. I replaced the brake pads, tires and unfortunately, I had to let her go. I cannot take her back… Read Full Review

I have owned my 94 CBR 1000F for 10 years now and through that time it has shared garage space with various sports bikes of all common makes due to it being the best all rounder i have ever ridden, it's fast, handles well for what it is, reasonable fuel consumption,is superb two up with luggage and other than general service items which you expect to replace as the mileage increases (40,000) it has never let me down and as the title says "it's just so easy" to open up the garage and get on it… Read Full Review

bought a 90 cbr1000f in 2010 on consignment with 25k on the odometer, it now has almost 51k, no issues to speak of this is a excellent reliable sportstouring bike i drive it year around in temps from 20%f to 100%f, it has not failed me except once, i was stuck in traffic on a 99%f summer day and it over heated and blew out the three way cooling system union, $30 part. considering it lasted 21 years and was made from hard molded plastic it did good and well past its service life. i would… Read Full Review

My Dad had two of these - a "J" or "hurricane" and then later on a mid-1990's model. I've always loved them, and have waited 20 years to get one of my own.
I've had mine for just over a year now, and I love it. I work from home, so I only get to ride it occasionally, but it's awesome. I spent a year looking for the perfect one, because I wanted the last model before it was discontinued. I got the best paint scheme (IMHO) and a low-mileage 1998 model.
It's heavy, sure, but you don't really… Read Full Review

I am a recent owner of a supersport of 1990 in perfect condition for its age.
38.500 km on the conter. Red and Black (very nice color scheme).
I passed of a GS 500 straightly for this model and simply love it.
It's a smooth ride, super confortable.
Plenty of power, (must be always awake), very easy to ride (mutch more easy than riding the GS500).
I am 1.85 mts tall. so I don't have any problems moving it around. (It weighs 230 Kg, is clear what is weighed)
I use it every day, I live 20… Read Full Review

I passed my direct access in January 2010 and new I wanted a CBR 1000f. I'm 33 and when I was around 16 my Dad owned one of these beasts. It was a K Reg in Red and black and I remember wishing I could taker her out. Well a number of years later I now own a K reg 1000fm. She is beautiful and I can't go out without someone commenting on how nice she is. I've not done any really long distance and although I love the acceleration this bike offers I'm a relatively low speed rider. I just enjoy… Read Full Review

ive owned my cbr1000fr for just over a year now and have enjoyed riding it, the power is great for a bike which weighs 518 pounds , i do have a micron 4-2-1 manifold and a carbon end can on it so it only has 1 end can instead of the two , the colour scheme is great in my opinion i have the red white and blue colour scheme with the graphite grey wheels. ive replaced the stupidly large indicators on the rear to mini arrow style ones and removed the number plate holder and replaced it with a tail… Read Full Review

I have owned this bike a CBR1000FT for 10 years and covered nearly 100,000 miles on her she has been 100% reliable with no problems at all.
She get a service every 4000 miles and is superbly comfortable.
Fuel comsumption is fairly good for a heavy bike i get about 45-50 mpg.
You can ride alday in fact i have done 750 miles in one day once with no problems.
You really cant go wrong with one of these so much so i have just purchsed one of the last bikes produced 2000 registered on W plate with… Read Full Review

Have owned my bike for 18 months and have spent money on new tyres and drive sprockets and chain (usual running costs).
Then head gasket blew so replaced head gasket and the chain tensioner alson with 6 worn rocker arms.
Great thought this was it then after only 50miles of summer riding the nearside middle fairing and front lower fairing decided to part company, i have now got a cbr that should be blue and is more like a streetfighter,
This has been the worste bike i have, have been trying hard… Read Full Review

Had this bike for a year or so and can't wait to get touring on it, can't afford it at the moment) very comfortable and have been from West Wales to NW London and back on it without incident so far. Starts first press of the button even though it's kept outside in all weathers and sometimes not ridden for a month or more. Have fitted hard luggage and the missus loves it on the back so bring on the trip to South of France to see an old mate… Read Full Review

overall a hidden gem. now described by some critics as bland and dated yet this machine remains well sought after, with many loyal fans,worldwide. this is a very heavy bike yet once on the move handles well enough. also despite it,s weight is deceptively fast. the lights are superb also so riding at night is a pleasure. i too like so many have grown disillusioned with many of the current bikes out there. many are now overpriced, without character and have you noticed how physically small they… Read Full Review

The CBR1000F-N I own was my first litre bike and a step up towards something newer. Having recently been on several test rides on many of the latest bikes as a Blackbird, Hayabusa, XJR1300 and Sprint 1050, i still haven't bitten the bullet and sold mine and bought a new one, the reason... well it simply just isn't worth it. None of the above machines were that much better to command a £9000 price tag whilst selling mine as a trade in for no more than the £500 most dealers would offer it they… Read Full Review

This is my second CBR1000F. Definitely one of the bust buys in motorcycling, as it still rides and looks nice after 17 years! I've added a leather Corbin seat and dark tint Lockhart Phillips windscreen. The screen is a bit higher than stock. Also added Gen-Mar bar risers that make the long rides much nicer. No mechanical issues in 8 years and nearly 30k miles. Go Honda!!… Read Full Review

I have owned my 1993 CBR1000FP for 8 Years in which time its done most of Europe including 8 countries in 2 weeks.
Its been over the Pyranees and St Bernard pass (not the tunnel but over the top) 2 up with luggage without a hint of a problem.
The bikes now turned 54000 miles and its still as smooth as when I first got it.
You get a lot of bike for your money and would rather take my CBR abroad than a new bike I know the CBR will get me home… Read Full Review

Being 14 years old in Jan 2010, the bike still rides like a bike a quarter of it's age. Shifting seams loose, but still always finds it's gear and other that high fuel consumpsion, I still get exited every time before a ride. I use the bike for everyday comuting between work/home and the only reason is that it is just so much fun. At 43000km on the clocks it is getting very heavy on fuel with a consumpsion of 11km to 1L of fuel. I think I preffer driving my 1300 Opel Corsa to work, only use the… Read Full Review

I own a 1992 Red and Black Honda CBR1000FN on a J plate. Its the second 1000F that I have owned, the other 10 years ago. The current bike had just over 15k on the clock when I purchased it in 2006, it is in extremely good condition. I am its third owner. I am 6'2 and 17 stone. the bike is extremely comfortable, albeit not exciting. It does everything that I want, however its not as much fun as a ZZR 1100 or the Blackbird. I have just travelled from scotland in appalling weather with three givi… Read Full Review

Recently purchased a 20 year old Honda CBR1000F Tourer with just 22000 on the clock. I had a new one, when they first came out and another in 1992. Since then have had 2 new Blackbirds and a GSX1000R. I must say that this impulse purchase is fantastic. It feels almost as breathtaking as a Blackbird when you give it full reign. Although not as nimble as a GSX1000, it feels a lot safer. Centre of gravity is much higher, but one only notices this at low turning speeds, and hauling on to the… Read Full Review
