The 2009 Honda CBR1000RR, already one of our favorite bikes of all time, has been made better. How? Honda Combined ABS is optional, but it's the new color schemes that really improve things. Finally available in all-white, all-black or this Repsol replica, the colors finally live up to the rest of the 1000RR's classy, up market looks.
The Honda Combined ABS system is tuned for sports riding, so should be a performance enhancer rather than a nanny safety aid, even if it does at 10kg to the weight. The CBR1000RR starts at $12,499, $12,999 for the ABS model.
