Initially, the bike was supposed to make an appearance at the 36th Osaka Motorcycle Show 2020 and the 47th Tokyo Motorcycle Show. Both shows were cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The CB-F concept is a fusion of advanced technology with a design paying homage to the CB900F（CB750F in Japan） - a Japanese global bike which became an icon in the past 60 years in part through the North American racing scene.
The concept uses a 998cc water-cooled, four-stroke, four-valve, inline four-cylinder DOHC engine which is housed in a lightweight chassis made of high-tensile steel with a mono-backbone.
The suspension is made of a front inverted front fork while the rear uses a lightweight aluminium single-sided Pro-Arm.
