Honda Announces 2004 Motorcycle Models for Europe

Amsterdam, September 11, 2003 --- Honda Europe Motorcycle today announced its 2004 motorcycle models for the European market. The main features of the major models are outlined as follows:


CBR1000RR

This on-road sports model is equipped with a water-cooled, four-stroke, in-line, four-cylinder 1000cc engine. It features the world's first electronically controlled steering damper, called HESD*, which provides improved ride comfort in a wide range of riding conditions, including ordinary roads and circuits. Sales will start in the spring of 2004. The projected number of sales is 15,000 units/year. In HESD, the damper characteristics are automatically controlled by a fuel injector-integrated ECU, and sensors linked to the speedometer that respond to speed and acceleration. The system makes it possible to maintain a light handling feel at lower speeds, while improving stability at higher speeds. The system thus provides handling characteristics suitable to a wide range of riding conditions.

*HESD: Honda Electronic Steering Damper


CBR1000RR(European specification)


CBR125R

This is an on-road sports model equipped with a water-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder 125cc engine. Taking advantage of Honda's global production network, this model will be imported from Thai Honda Mfg. Co., Ltd., a Honda subsidiary in Thailand. Priced at a more affordable level compared with previous models, sales of the model will start in Germany, France and other countries at the beginning of 2004. The projected number of sales is 6,000 units/year.


CBF250

This on-road sports model is equipped with an air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder 250cc engine. A reduction in weight was achieved by using aluminum rear forks, resulting in a light, sporty-feeling ride. It will be manufactured by Moto Honda da Amazonia LTDA, a Honda subsidiary in Brazil. Sales will start in Spain and other countries in the spring of 2004. The projected number of sales is 3,000 units/year.
