New in Cologne Motor Show 2012: Honda CBR1000RR 2013

Late yesterday we told you in the SBK Magny Cours preview that the Honda World Superbike Team had brought a special decoration to the last appointment. Those of you who have seen it have agreed to highlight how much a motorcycle changes just with some new “stickers” or the inclusion of false headlights on its front. Luckily for the ordinary customer, this decoration is inspired by the one that will wear the Honda CBR1000RR 2013.

But that's it. Do not expect more changes in 2013 than that new decoration. Something that, on the other hand, takes on all the logic if we stop to think about how long it will take to develop their next Superbike with V4 configuration. When the time comes, it may be time to take your hat off to a work of art.

Make no mistake, the Honda may have been out of date compared to such gross machines as the BMW HP4, Aprilia RSV4 APRC or Ducati 1199 Panigale S but still a more than acceptable machine for both track and road use - although I miss more elegant decorations -. And it is that although it is entirely criticizable to point out that Honda has been living on income for a few years without bothering to create new and innovative products, it is undeniable that in terms of performance and reliability the company with the golden wing still takes the cake.
