Kudos to Honda's engineers for beaning the PR about the head in an effort to NOT be obsessed with the 0-60 number. Honestly I think a lot of vehicles would be better daily drivers/riders if they didn't obsess about that number. Instead, just gear for what's best for its intended use and let the number of shifts from 0-60 be whatever it is.

That would have been nice, but if you want the bike I wouldn't let that stop you.

Of 'old what? Honda had one single foray with hydraulic valves on a DOHC bike back in the mid-80's, but other than that, they've not been tried before or after.

I'm not sure about this...didn't the 1100 Shadows have hydraulic valves?

Lots of cruisers have hydraulic valves but they're not DOHc motors and they're not inline-fours like the CB1100.

Ah, ok. Gotcha. Completely missed that point.

I'd love to have one but our ridiculous taxes over here make it a completely unfeasible proposition.
