Some of the earlier information appearing on the web indicated that the CB1100 headed for Europe, Canada and the USA employed just a single throttle body amongst other things like the servo driven exhaust flap. Some people just ran with that information reporting on the bike before actually laying eyes on it. I believe it was on this forum that someone had posted a link to a podcast reporting on the CB1100 where they more or less trashed the bike based on much of this same mis-information. Of course one of the guys reporting on the podcast was apparently a Moto Guzzi dealer, so of course no bias there.
As I've mentioned before, I've been following this bike since before it was released in Japan. I've found it to be very entertaining to see just how much reaction this bike has garnered both positive and negative. I agree with others that have said that it's a good sign when a bike generates very little indifference. That certainly seems to be the case with the CB1100.
