I'm sure most of you have seen this rear case. It matches the cb1100's red tank.

Who makes it? Is it mounted on the stock Honda carrier?

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.
I for one don't thanks you for posting the review, as I had decided the cb1100 wasn't going to be my next bike, but now, all I can say is wow!!

The more that comes out about how the engine tuning impacts the performance characteristics, the more I like the sounds of this bike.

I had a great time at the NYC Bike Show. The Honda booth was fun!



Was chatting with many of the factory people, and they are hopeful and enthusiastic about the cb1100.

Checked out the Ducati Booth. They had great 'product' as well.

Kevin Ash is one of the better bike reviewers. I've read several of his reviews.

Yep. If you're gonna go retro, go retro.

It'll be interesting to see how many people back up their praise with their checkbook on this one. Honda came close with this one, IMHO, but not quite close enough.

I use all my stuff up till there's nothing left but dust and rust and won't be picking up a new (to me) bike until the VFR requires just too much in the way of maintenance/replacement parts. That said, instead of a payment I keep tinkering and modding what I've got. I have a lot of good memories riding my little CB4F all around the northeast, In that respect, I could see me owning one of these CB's and fixing it up with that look.

The price is $9999 minus their $1002 discount plus the local 1/3 of 1% business tax.

i had a 76 CB750 same colors only original pipes. Of course I had to go and put a noisy azz Kerker 4 into 1 on it. Liked the sound then. Prefer nice and quiet now.

Ash On Bikes Reviews the CB1100
Really good review. Makes me more interested in the bike. Owned two 400 fours as a teen, one cb750f in my twenties. (and a kz650, and a suzuki 750). Always liked the sound of an Air cooled inline 4.

I now go across the country in lickety-split fashion on an HD touring bike that puts out a massive 67 hp at the back wheel. I don't really care for plus-100 hp bikes.

Any Honda Dealers in the Northeast have the same agressive pricing?

This is the bike Honda should have built. There is no reason it could not have been built with modern reliability and functionality. If they had built this, I would have put a deposit on it the first day I found out about it, I wouldn't even need to wait for it to show up to decide whether or not I liked it. Even with modest performance, the looks alone just blow me away.
