Honda Motorcycle India has opened bookings for their 2019 superbikes line-up. As of now, bookings for four CBU Honda superbikes have commenced: CB1000R+, CBR1000RR, CBR1000RR Fireblade (and SP variant) and Gold Wing Tour DCT; at the exclusive Honda Wing World outlets in Mumbai and Delhi.
Booking amounts for the Honda superbikes have not been shared yet. However, we do not expect it to be lower than Rs 50,000 since the Honda CBR650F and CRF1000L Africa Twin have the same booking price.
Being CBU products, customers might even have to deposit almost half the total price of the motorcycle. Such CBU products will sell in very low numbers compared to the regular models, and for the same reason, it is not a wise option to keep them in stock always, but import them only when an order comes.
That said, here a brief look at the new 2019 Honda superbikes for India, along with their ex-showroom (Delhi) prices:
Honda CB1000R+ (Rs 14.46 Lakh)
The Honda CB1000R+ is powered by a 1000cc inline-four engine which makes 189bhp and 114Nm of torque. The main highlight of the new CB1000R+ is its ‘Neo Cafe Racer' styling, and will be available only in Graphite Black.
Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade (Rs 16.43 Lakh)
The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade has always been one of the most popular litre-class motorcycles in the world. The latest version is powered by the same engine as the CB1000R+, with 189bhp and 114Nm of torque. It comes in two colour choices: Grand Prix Red and Matt Ballistic Black Metallic.
Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP (Rs 19.28 Lakh)
The SP version of the Honda CBR1000RR is powered by the same power plant, but is much more track-focussed than the regular model. Most of the standard parts have been swapped with lightweight race components for the best performance. The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP will be available in only Grand Prix Red,finished with a unique HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) livery.
Honda Gold Wing Tour DCT (Rs 27.79 Lakh)
The Honda Gold Wing Tour DCT, as the name suggests, comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Powered by a 1833cc flat-six engine, the ultra-premium touring motorcycle makes 124bhp and 170Nm of torque. The Honda Gold Wing is also one of the very few motorcycles in the world to have a reverse gear (electric). Colour options are limited to just one — Candy Ardent Red.
Thoughts On The New 2019 Honda Superbikes In India
Honda Motorcycle India is the second-biggest seller of two-wheelers in the country, as seen from the latest bike sales report. While the Honda Activa 5G or the Shine SP appeals the wider mass, the Japanese brand has still got a niche yet active customer base for their premium products.
