2013 Honda CB1100

There's an article in Motorcyclist hinting at the fact Honda USA may finally import the CB1100. There was a test mule on hand here in the US and the article states that feedback on the bike was positive.
The CB1100 will be available in Europe as a 2013 model.
Let's hope it's available here too.
I'll take a red one (still).

I would be very surprised. But who knows, with some of the new bikes they have come out with, they are generating a lot of interest. If they do bring it here I will have a very hard time resisting the urge... A red ABS would be great. The latest Japanese version is the CB1100 Black.

that's still plenty of omph to get down the road really fast.
this obsession with 2000hp bikes is nuts!

With a K&N, PC and exhaust I bet they can put down 110rwhp easily.

I had a CB1000 "Big One' briefly. Bought it based on looks, but it was as dull as a box of rocks. The whole "retuned for more torque" just didn't apply, no power and no torque.

I hope they haven't repeated that mistake.

Let's hope so. With all the interest in retro bikes right now, it should sell sufficiently well. It doesn't appear to be a stripper bike like the previous Nighthawk 750 (single front disc brake, rear drum...ack!). And I love the chrome fenders!

I will give it a serious look when (and if) it gets here...

Meh, why bother? There's a bunch of ZRX's around for cheap and with a Holeshot kit will put out some fairly respectable numbers.
For $4-5000 with mods you can get the retro right out of your system and have a nicer looking bike IMO.

Some people don't want liquid cooling, but would like fuel injection.

Every time I change that idiotic cartridge filter and remove both drain plugs it's a nice gentle punch in the nuts.

Too proud to buy a SPOOFAK to fix an update that should have been made by the factory years ago.

Never again.

Agreed. I want to like this Honda but cant get there. Now if it was a CB1300...

Ummm. There were also reports of them showing the bikes here with positive results 2 years ago.

True. But the article in Motorcyclist says, and I quote: "American Honda officials were spotted at the recent Motorcycle Sport Touring Association's STAR 2012 gathering in Avon, CO, in late June with a pre-production CB1100 in tow, soliciting comments from prospective buyers. Reaction was reportedly positive."

Now why would they have a bike on hand if they're not planning on selling the bike?

Get a feel for the public's reaction. There have been lots and lots of bikes that have come here to vet their market viability and have never made it past that process.

They did it back in what, 2009 or 10 when it was first introduced also. They had at least one CB1100 in California and I remember one of the motorcycle magazines had a litte writeup on it. They were gauging reactions but for whatever reason they felt it wasn't the right time back then. This might even be the same bike.
