Apologies if this thread exists elsewhere....Seeing some chatter about a V-4 CBR coming...

Sounds like an 'us too' response to Ducati and Aprilia.

Discuss. :grin2:

Every summer someone brings this up. I won't hold my breath waiting for a V4 CBR. A new motor would mean a completely different bike from the frame to the swing arm. Honda is too busy rehashing the decade old design. Small bikes like the Grom and other small displacement bikes is where they are making money. This is where I think their focus will be in R&D.

The CBR will never be a V anything. The V4 might appear in a sport bike sometime, but for now Honda makes millions selling the V4 in every type of bike other than a sport bike.

AT the point the V4 goes sport bike again it will carry a name other than CBR.

Now that it’s no longer race legal (and the fact they did it in an automobile- what was that ugly thing called again?) perhaps Honda could build a production V5. Pipe dream, I know.

Nice RSV4. I have been looking at the newer Tuono's for a while now. i have well sorted VFR with a wonderful V4 but the Italian Sport Tour is probably next. i'll keep the old CBR for the track until one day Honda goes V4.

The CBR name is not the name that will be used for any multi cylinder V powered bike.

Honda have far too much history, racing legend and lore and historic capital invested in the VF, VFR, RV and RVF names to be stupid enough the squander a V3, V4 or V5 engine on the CBR name to then not use the VFR, RVF or RCV name on a V powered sport bike marketing campaign.

Then again they have done dumber things before, take Honda deciding to paint the US SC77 engine covers black instead of gold - so who really knows LOL
