Honda CB1300

The Honda CB1300 is an undisguised motorcycle of the Japanese manufacturer Honda. The naked bike was (internal: SC30 ) as successor to the Honda CB1000 developed. The launch took place in 1998, first in Japan.

The machine had a liquid-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine with 74 kW of power at first, which was designed torque- oriented. Since 2003, the CB1300 has a computer- controlled injection system with uncontrolled catalyst and 85 kW. With the 2008 model year, power was reduced to 84 kW. The fußgeschaltete transmission has five gears and the secondary drive chain drive. An electric starter starts the motor. As standard an anti-lock system is installed to increase active safety, theft protection is enhanced by an electronic immobilizer.

The internally designated as SC54 CB1300 2003 was technically and stylistically revised and presented as a successor to the previous CB1300 ( SC40 ) at the Intermot. Technically 2005, especially the engine management ( injection behavior ) has been improved and added an ABS to offer.

Optionally, a half cowling was used, which is reminiscent in shape and color to the Bol d'Or models of the 1980s. The S and SA -called ( with ABS) variant with half cowling is by the color and the shape of the fairing an optical throwback to the CB 1100 RB of 1981. Though there is the CB1300 SA in Black ( Darkness Black Metallic), it is most (estimated: 70-80 %) in the classic Bol d'Or - color combination of red and white ( " Pearl Fadeless White / Red Arcadian " ) sold. Honda calls this variant Super Bol d'Or. Raw Clothes there was the CB1300 in " Pearl Heron Blue" ( up to model 2007).

With a rated capacity of 85 kW, the CB1300 is motorized rather moderate compared to the competition. Remarkable, however, is the relatively high torque of 118 Nm in combination with the linear power delivery. Since about 2000 min-1 are around 90 Nm, at approximately 6100 min-1 118 Nm can be achieved. The rated power is reached at 7500 min-1. From model 2008 engine output to 84 kW at 7750 min-1 has been changed. The trade offers a selection of real or perceived power increasing accessories; For example, various exhaust systems, sports air filter or the Power Commander, one in the engine management engages auxiliary control unit of the company Dynojet Research, Inc.

The CB1300 is very manoeuvrable in comparison with the direct competition and drives itself handily despite the relatively high weight. When maneuvering, especially in very tight corners in the mountains ( switchbacks, hairpin turns ), the tight steering proves to be an advantage. In early May 2007, significantly expanded the list of approved tires by Honda.
