Frequently asked questions
What's the history behind the Honda CBR?
The Honda company is responsible for the biggest selling motorcycle of all time – the Super Cub (or the C50, C70, and C90 to us in the UK), which came out in 1958. Its slogan: 'You only meet nice people on a Honda'. Soon after, Honda started producing sports bikes – and it hasn’t looked back.
Today, Honda's racing-inspired super sport bikes all carry the letters ‘CBR’ in their model names.
Which models make up today’s CBR range?
The flagship bike is the Fireblade CBR1000RR, a luxurious choice built with premium components throughout. It’s been a consistent favourite since it was first released in 1992. The latest incarnations are the CBR1000RR SP and SP2, lighter and more precisely engineered for racing should you choose to take them off the road and onto the track.
The ‘starter bike’ in the series is the CBR125R which Honda has designed with younger or less experienced riders in mind. At 125cc, you can experience the feel of a sports bike without having too much power to control – a good introduction into the world of racing bikes.
With more power on board, the 500cc CBR500R is tuned for racing, but can be ridden with an A2 licence, making it more accessible to newer riders.
The four-cylinder CBR650F is an even more powerful choice with a whopping 649cc engine. It’s encased in sleek fairing, giving it a more polished look that its CBR stablemates.
How much does it cost to insure a CBR?
What affects my insurance costs?
How much you’ll actually pay for your insurance depends on a number of factors, including:
- Your actual motorbike. The model, age and value of your CBR will all have an impact on your premium.
- Your age. How old you are and how much experience you have on a bike will play a role, with younger, less experienced riders typically paying out more.
- Your postcode and where you store your bike when it’s not on the road. Keeping your motorbike in a locked garage could help keep premiums down.
- How often you use your bike. Someone who uses their bike infrequently is likely to be considered less of a risk than someone who rides long distances daily.
- Your occupation. Certain jobs are viewed as riskier and attract higher premiums.
