So far I think these are the 2 hot set-ups!!!! The first photo you had with the lamineer lip type fairing was nice also.I would love to test something with a lip just to see if I could take a little more buffeting off the helmet

This I like. The lines Honda should've given it from the factory

^Those front fenders with braces somehow look more clunky than the original CB750's did - I prefer the unbraced chrome fender on the CB1100. (Besides, you don't have to pay extra for it).

Original fenders look basically the same, with the supports... I like the fender that is smaller, too, but back in the day, fenders were there to keep the muck and mess off the rider. Supports were common for years to help support the larger fenders... tp

I love the fender braces, fork gaiters, wire wheels (if they're tubeless), big thick seats...the whole 9 retro miles!

VisorDown recently did a nice "first ride" review on the CB1100:

VisorDown CB1100 Review

They're stating that Honda is claiming 51.4 mpg for the European model (which is 42.8 mpg in U.S. gallons). I was hoping for better.

Guth screwed with this post 01-20-2013 at 09:47 PM Reason: clarification on spec

And here is the most detailed review that I've yet to find on the CB1100. I think it answers (at least from one reviewers perspective) quite a few of the questions that have been posted here to date.

Ash On Bikes Reviews the CB1100
Thank You for the link. It is indeed a thoughtful, informative review.

In particular, it's interesting that Honda altered the intake valve timing on cylinders 1 and 2 so that the engine mimicked the feel of the origional - I guess the early cb1100 test engines were TOO smooth!

Also of interest is that they wanted the styling to evoke memories of numerous early Hondas - not just the cb750, but the 400-4 750dohc, etc.

I saw the cb1100 at the New York Show yesterday. It was garnering quite a bit of attention from older riders, and not a few newer ones as well. But like the origional sandcast cb750 the parent company is unsure of how well it is going to be received. That has also resulted in an abbreviated catalogue of Honda factory accessories for the bike. Enthusiasm aside, they are clearly walking before running on this one.

Also, apparently it's not too difficult for them to get the engine to meet modern emission specs, as air cooled engines warm up faster than water cooled, so they spend less time and emit less emissions warming up. The oil cooling helps with emissions when it is warmed up, providing a stable cycle.

The author of the article (Ash) also answers a lot of questions from readers in the attached Forum - very informative.
