In order to comply with Japan’s new exhaust emission standards, HONDACB1300The series has been revised.
Let’s take a look at the difference between the old and new CB1300SB equipped with a shroud.
The overall change is not much, but the stability of manipulation becomes more natural
The CB1300SB issued a loud exhaust sound at the moment the engine started, becauseAdopted a new muffler that can reduce exhaust resistance, so in response to the new exhaust emission standard, an additional 9ps horsepower is added..
The heavy torque at low speeds and the silky unique smoothness of the side-by-side four-cylinder engine at high speeds are not much different from the 2017 model, and these features also make the new CB1300SB with a huge body of 274kg. Can speed up more neatly.
As long as 4000rpm is enough for riding in urban areas, the newly added 9ps horsepower is not very useful. For most riders:A sliding clutch that reduces operating pressure is more helpful than increased horsepower.
In terms of handling performance, although the riding feel is slightly improved, this may also be caused by different tire types (the 2018 model uses BATTLAX T30, and the 2017 model is equipped with BATTLAX BT021 / 022); in addition,The old model will only react a little when tilting the body in the forward state, and the new model feels much smoother. This difference is not only related to the tire type, but also related to the reset front and rear shock absorbers..
New CB1300SB adjusts front brake calipers in terms of brakesAlthough there is no difference between the old and new models, the CB1300SB can slow down the huge body sharply. Highly mature technology combined with uncompromising manufacturing processes all convey HONDA’s vision for the CB car series.
HONDA’s 2018 Japanese version CB1300SB-The new CB1300SB has undergone minor changes in appearance. In addition to adjusting the front brake calipers to increase braking force, the clutch has also adopted a sliding clutch to reduce operating pressure.
Increased volume of exhaust sound waves requires special attention when warming up
One thing to note about the new CB1300SB is that the exhaust sound is not like the sound quality that previous HONDA models should have, including the volume at idle is much higher.
New and old riding posture
HONDA raised the handlebar position in the 2014 CB1300SB. The riding position of the 2018 model remained unchanged. The performance of the feet on the feet was also very good. The knight in the photo is 175cm tall.
Differences in 2017/2018
Although the exhaust is changed, the pulsation of the side-by-side four-cylinder engine is increased. Of course, this may also be an illusion caused by the exhaust sound waves.
The handling performance is smoother and more natural than the older models that require more effort when standing upright.
The biggest difference between the CB1300SB and the twin CB1300SF is that it is equipped with a shroud. This feature also allows the CB1300SB to have a certain degree of windproof effect.. In long-distance riding, the CB1300SB only needs a commonly used speed range to have enough power output.

Whenever you ride the CB1300 series, you feel at ease. Because exhaust emission standards are becoming more stringent, even the best-selling models may stop production at any time. So if you want the CB1300SB, you must start early.
