Interesting how motorcycles are going the full circle from almost full tilt street ( roadrace) bikes to a breed that just about looks like earlier days with engines with fins on the cylinders http://adrenalinepowersportsmag.com/201 ... -unveiled/ .

I like that a lot. I agree with your comments. Looks like a slightly more modern CBX. While keeping a lot of it's original look. :up: I wonder what the MSRP is ? I'm willing to bet I don't like the modern price. :mrgreen:

Dont get me started on that CB1100 again, its got nothing on a Mk1 naked Bandit 12 or Kawi Zephyr, it actually will rob your wallet of money at that ridiculous price.

Nice looking Honda, a style I really could get into but not the Price. I know it is way out of my budget.
Be great if they would bring out a mid-size CB550/600 with the looks of this CB1100 but that doesn't mean I would go out and buy one.

I had a test ride on one of those last year.

Felt like I was perched on a fairly quick 125.

Really small, and for an 1100, lacklustre performance.

I ended up buying an NC750 auto (2017 model) feels more like a bike !!

Thread resurrection time !!!!!

FWIW Terry

88bhp on an 1100cc fuel injected motorcycle. Is that the best that Honda could do? :wth: Give me a 1200 bandit anytime!
