    2021 Honda CB1000R design changes

    Changes include tweaks to the headlight, where it retains its overall design but is at a more aggressive angle than the flat-looking unit on the outgoing model. Additionally, the Honda branding that split the LED circle now looks smaller. Honda has also opted for a new alloy wheel design. The company has reworked the shape of the panels around the radiator and fuel tank as well.

    Both, the CB1000R and CB1000R Black Edition feature the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system, connected to a new full-colour, 5.0-inch TFT display. The engine and gearbox remain the same and so do the output figures, but Honda has said that it now “offers smoother delivery and response from revised fuel-injection settings”.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
