In XESS: Honda CB1000R-based streetfighter from Italy

CB1000R XESS: Honda Italy add bling to a regular CB1000R...

First shown at the EICMA in Milan a few months ago, the Honda CB1000R XESS streetfighter concept might possibly go on sale in Italy sometime in the next few months. The XESS project was, in fact, headed by an Italian – Vito Cicchetti – the Director General at Honda Italy.

Based on the regular 2008 Honda CB1000R, the CB1000R XESS has been fitted with Showa USD forks, petal discs with radial-mount calipers, a titanium exhaust system, Michelin slicks, velvet seat covers, various carbonfibre bits and, er…, a red chain. The bike looks quite good, we think. In fact, if you remember the Honda Hornet Cup which we wrote about last year, the Italians seems to have a special talent when it comes to doing up Honda streetbikes…

It's red, it's (half) Italian and we think the XESS really does look very sexy!
