Post Listing Update: This CBR was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown.
2012 was a redesign year for the Honda CBR1000RR. Honda has traditionally been at the forefront of technology, but they have chosen to focus on chassis and suspension as of late. 175hp carries over from the 2011 model, with the only engine changes being to the ECU. In 2012, traction control was all the rage. Everyone wondered if Big Red was going to follow suit. Thankfully they didn’t, and even the connection between your wrist and the engine was still mechanical. New mapping combined with Showa Big Piston Forks and a balance free shock gave us one the best total packages of the time. The CBR1000RR might not have had the outright power or sound of the R1, but refinement and ease of use made it more than capable in almost anyone’s hands.
No reserve auctions are few and far between now. Hondas hold their value well and fans know what they’re worth. I myself dealt with inflated asking prices when shopping for my CBR600RR, but deals can be found if you’re patient. Many have been well cared for, but 4,538 miles is incredibly low for a clean CA titled bike (VIN: Jh2sc5904ck401521). The listing says maintenance was done “according to the manual,” but any seven year old bike definitely should have had more than the three prescribed oil changes. Questions here would be recommended. Frame sliders, integrated turn signals, and a Taylor Made exhaust complete the modifications list.
