Boon Siew Honda has unveiled two new Honda performance bikes – the CBR1000RR and the 2012 Gold Wing. At the same time, the company announced that it will introduce the CRF250L in June this year.

The CBR1000RR is a super sports machine described as the “ultimate litre-class machine”. It runs on a 999 cc liquid-cooled inline-four engine framed in an all-aluminium twin-spar chassis. The latest CBR features new suspension – 43 mm “Big Piston” fork up front and Unit Pro-Link rears with double-tube shocks. There’s also a new multi-function LCD panel and Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS). The CBR1000RR is priced at RM109,900 with C-ABS and RM98,900 for the non-ABS version.

The 2012 Gold Wing is powered by a 1,832 cc liquid-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine. Its bodywork has been improved by increasing lower body wind protection. This 2012 model gets new seat material, a Pro-Arm Rear Swingarm and iPod connectivity. On the safety front, there’s ABS and Combined Braking System (CBS). The Gold Wing comes in Pearl White or Graphite Black and will set you back RM174,900.

Unveiled at last year’s Tokyo show, the road-going enduro-style Honda CRF250L is designed on the concept of a street-legal dual-sport bike. Powered by a liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC single-cylinder with PGM-FI, this engine emphasis is on low-rpm torque. The slim body is supported by a twin-tube oval-pipe steel frame.

The bike has disc brakes with wave-shaped rotors and a skid plate. Other features include an inverted fork front suspension, rear Pro-Link suspension and an aluminium swing arm. This bike is related to the CBR250R. Price to be announced later.
