Arrival on the European market in 2003, Imposing CB1300 was launched to satisfy roadsters muscular lovers . Specifications of the 2005 CB1300, Generally retained the same objective as those of the original release.
This is an impressive bike goal in year available Manner, A Powerful but not invincible motorcycle . Rather than issue the concept , engineers are attached to refine several aspects such as ease of daily use over long distances or comfort . In addition , the 2005 vintage of the CB1300 egalement en ABS versions .
Dynamism and new caches the 2005 release retains the muscular lines of Superbikes from the eighties and the Imposing dimensions enable it to assume His macho picture. This ” mechanical manhood ” it owes Largely to His Big inline 4. Around the visual center , double -cradle frame is a simple but sturdy frame .
Paradoxically , the CB1300 is more compact than icts Imposing proportions would Suggest. It aims to Provide a comfortable riding position and seat height suitable for all templates. Malthus , the 2005 vintage of the new CB1300 and CB1300 ABS has offert two bikes side covers redesigned . These are narrower than 20 mm in the legs (10 mm On Each Side ) facilitate and ground support . The seat aussi has -been enhanced to Increase the long – distance comfort .
A huge engine Difficult to miss . This is a huge 4 -cylinder dual overhead liquid cooling provides incredibly manly forms the CB1300 . This monster is 1284 cc power 85 kilowatts at 7500 r / min also has the good taste not to -have at all costs whip in high revs . Indeed , the image of a quiet giant , the power is available from very low revs significantly . With 117 Nm at 5500 r / min , the CB has , According To Honda, “a pair of locomotive on all reports. ” On the Basis of a motor born to deliver performance in line with dimensions , engine manufacturers -have concentrated Their efforts on Obtaining a behavior and a more comfortable daily operation . One complaint That Many injection engines Is That They Have a little brutal operation at low speeds , Often Characterized by a ” burst” Preceded by a small response time after Each throttle .
This kind of phenomenon is noticeable at low speed particularly, When maneuvering between cars, for example. We must therefore get interaction ” movement of the handle / motor reaction” the sweetest and most Instantly possible, has particularly elusive goal. The engine is therefore applied to get a better response at low speeds by refining ignition and injection mapping so Instantly provide a progressive amount of mixture to the combustion chambers .
These exchange in details helped to minimize the time before noticeable response and , accordingly , to Greatly soften the operation of the engine. In the end , the new qualities at low speed CB1300 will not fail to lavish the curiosity of those, who knew the old model . Chassis and suspension The 2005 version of the classic goal Retains light and rigid original release of the architecture the dual cradle steel frame . One of three attachment point of the engine uses rubber stamps, In Particular , reduce vibration felt by the driver . This original hand cycle characterized by a lower seat height and wheelbase, that you would expect to find on a motorcycle of this kind .
Front suspension fork cartridge proves flexible while at the rear , the two combined conventional dampers work with an oscillating aluminum 40 x 90 mm for the transmission of power to the ground arms .
These are combined with separate tank, associated with the arm by means clustering of two solid supports integrated into the aluminum rear axle carrier. ABS top performer brand sense of security prevailing on the CB1300 is guaranteed by a set of three discs with hydraulic control . At the front, there are 4 – piston callipers and 310 mm floating discs while the rear disc is braked by a dual piston caliper . The hoses double front disc aussi -have been modified , shares are now shielded to Ensure better efficiency with minimal effort.
The anti- lock system Equips All which covered the release of the CB1300 is particularly light and sophisticated . Inert under normal driving conditions, and brake, the system continuously calculates the speed of each wheel and takes action, When it detects any difference between thesis speeds. With this , the new release boasts an ABS braking exceptional softness .
The heart of this system is a small electronic control unit (ECU) controls,that year ultra compact modulator driven by an electric motor braking pressure, that regulates between the front and rear . The 16-bit microprocessor of the electronic control unit continuously marriages information from the two Hall effect sensors, All which register the speed of the wheels by means clustering of gears secured to the rims .
During braking , the center Interprets the tiniest variations in speed Between the Front and rear wheels (so weak and rapid exchange, that are undetectable by the driver) all which betray the first signs of slippage of a shoot. In this case , the central moment of the modulator speed control offset this change before it becomes more pronounced and / or locking of wheel slip .
This is achieved by a high- speed succession (at least 5 per second) cycles “drop / hold / increase” hydraulic pressure , it remains what happens at a level allowing the most efficient as possible without loss deceleration control. And if a malfunction is to be detected , the system automatically enters standby mode ( braking returns to the “standard” mode) and a fault indication and the need for action through a diode placed in the instrumentation.
In any case , it is the most effective ABS system ever fitted to a Honda. HISS immobilizer, as the first generation of CB1300 , the two new versions in 2005 -have a spacious furnished secure storage under the seat ( 12.4 liters CB1300 CB1300 ABS: 11.4 liters ) .
Icts in traditional forms , double instrumentation, Especially counter is equipped with a watch and a digital fuel gauge has more board computer able of displaying the mileage (partial or total ) , air temperature and large odd dates. Like Many Other Honda CB1300 is equipped with the highly effective HISS immobilizer system ( Honda Ignition Security System).
That Prevents starting the engine without one of the two keys original contact. Speaking at the heart of the electronic control unit , this system can not be bypassed by the replacing the switch or the odd center. And to allow smaller templates to find a more comfortable position , handlebar brackets aluminum forged the CB1300 can rotate 180 ° , which allows the handlebars back 20 mm. The CB1300 ABS and standard receive two different colors for 2005.
The first is a deep metallic black embellished with new markings , the second color isrepresented by a change of more expansive blue . 5 -spoke aluminum wheels fitted to the CB1300 show the shape and design elements are installed Many sports range. Finally , at the rear , LED taillights always starts by Projecting the form of a conventional light bulb twice.
