Every CB1100 they are to receive has already been spoken for. In those cases, there certainly won't be any demonstrators available.
Very true and I believe there are very limited numbers for the UK, the local dealer hasn't sold one yet although to be fair tis early days... but at £8995 its not exactly cheap
