back to CB1100, anyone ridden one who didnt like it?
Fair enough, D8. Although where I live, it's 99% cruisers and pirate outfit poseurs. I will try to keep my dislike of that scene to myself.

Agreed, back to the CB.

Same here. I was once told real Harley riders dont wear full face helmets. Anyway back on topic.

When can we expect a full test and road review from the magazines? Dont they get these things first?

Uh Oh

So there was a new, very helpful saleswoman at my dealership today. Somehow I put money down on all 4 cb1100s they had on order. Not sure what happened exactly.....

Well you could've wasted some bandwidth (or whatever it is that happens) with a larger photo...

Honda must be trying a new marketing technique, gotten from the custom chopper crowd. Too much ink for me, but that's just a personal thing. tp

Still can't get past the simple fact, that in Canada at least, the Bonneville is FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS less, and a damn fine machine. Honda doesn't want to sell these things in Canada. Which is just fine with me.

Wow thats a lot of jingle difference. The Bonneville is a fine machine, a little under powered and braked, but its smooth, shifts well and is reliable. Looks pretty good too!I bought one in 03 and sold it to my younger brother in 06 I think. Between us, It's run 30,000 trouble free miles so far.

Here the Bonnie is about $8k and the dealers wont discount them plus they add frt & prep. Whereas the Cb1100 lists for $ 10k but can be bought at a discount, so the gap between them is pretty small.

Interestingly, BIKE magazine (out of the UK) makes it sound as if the CB1100 is so much better than the Bonneville in both performance and quality of construction that it easily justifies the higher price. That of course doesn't take into account individual budgets and it sounds like there might be a larger price difference between the two bikes in Canada.

Still, I was very surprised that the reviewer spoke so glowingly of the CB1100 when comparing it to what has easily been the best of breed in this class of bikes for some time now.

Too much ink? Next you will be telling me too much character? (the moto guzzi not the girl)



Link for the pervs http://www.motorkari.cz/clanky/clanky-divka-mesice/

There is a write up on the moto guzzi cali 1400 too which I did not take the time to google translate yet. Interesting and beautiful motorcycle though. The custom, not the touring (pic'd above) is more to my liking.

You're sorta cherry-picking data here. If you take the absolute cheapest Bonny vs. the one-model of the CB1100 sold in Canada, the list price difference is $4500. But this is comparing a stripper model of Bonneville (e.g., no tach) vs. a relatively full-equipped Honda with ABS brakes. The Bonneville models that are more comparable sell for another $1K-$1.5K and they still don't have ABS. So the actual price difference of comparable models is more like $3K and $1K of that is explained by the cost of the ABS.

In Canada, most folks are probably going to make their decision based on whether they want ABS or not. If they don't the Honda makes them pay for something they don't want; if they do want it, the Triumph doesn't offer it.
