Honda has teased the 2021 Honda CB1000R naked motorcycle in a new teaser video, also announcing the formal unveil date of the updated motorcycle. The 2021 Honda CB1000R will be officially unveiled on November 10, 2020, and from what we can see from the teaser video, the updated model looks more or less similar to the outgoing model, except for a couple of minor cosmetic tweaks. From the profile shot seen in the teaser video, the 2021 CB1000R pretty much looks like its predecessor, except for a revised and redesigned headlight.
The previous model's LED headlight was a flat unit, quite like a classic round-shaped headlight, but with the LED strip. The new headlight sits at an angle, still gets the LED strip on the rim, and is actually similar to the headlight design of the MV Agusta Brutale range of naked bikes. The Honda's headlight though is more circular than oval, and it's the angle that it sits in that makes it look more oval than circular. And apart from the distinctively new headlight design, the bike pretty much remains the same, in terms of design.
The fuel tank retains the muscular look and feel of the old bike, and even the exhaust seems more or less same as before. The engine cases also look more or less same as the outgoing model's, but there are bound to be some changes, if not significant, but mainly some tweaks to meet the Euro 5 emission regulations. The 2021 Honda CB1000R is expected to be introduced in India, sometime in the first half of 2021, and priced at around ₹ 15 lakh (Ex-showroom).
