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.

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.

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

I was one of them, who is the other? :-)

Initially I was disappointed by the hp # for the CB1100, but after owning my Rex a few years, I think I'd be happy enough with 87hp. I very seldom use all the power I've got, when I do wind it out it gets up to 130 before you know it. I don't need to be going that fast. And I can't seem to get more than 6000 miles out of a rear tire. My first was about 3000. On the other hand, now I've got my ZRX set up nicely, and it's paid for. So I don't plan on replacing it anytime soon, but the CB100 would sorely tempt me.

Right here.

I don't give a crap about the hp:weight ratio. If I wanted fast, I'd buy a used Busa. If I wanted a curve machine, I'd buy a Fireblade.

I think the ZRX is ugly. And I have an aversion to Kawi's products in general.

This is like something tailor made for me. I love the sound and feel of a big 4 in a standard.

I'd buy this one,

but the one you guys are talking about does zero for me.

I don't think they'll bring this here. First it's too close to the CB1000R unless they drop that model. Second, is it really air cooled? That will cause problems with our strict emissions standards.

If the engineers at Honda can get an XR650L through emissions, this should be a piece of cake. Not to mention all the air cooled BMW's, Harleys Triumphs, Guzzis etc.......
