    I appreciate you posting the prototype photos. The prototype has something that the production model doesn't. Not that you couldn't alter the production model - you could. But out of the box there is a clear difference.

    I bet the bike changed about the time the Honda bean counters got involved.

    No, twin chrome exhausts and dual seat. It was at a concept show, with the usual group of young ladies draped over it. The pipes were longer and not as bulky at the rear - very similar to the pic of the aftermarket 4-2.

    If the bike sells well, I wonder if we will see more color choices... Don't get me wrong: I still love the red one but it's always nice to have choices. :D

    There is a white one available on honda.ca - as usual honda usa arbitrarily limits choice. I would go for a cb1000r abs if they offered it south of the border - honda's lost sale :norton

    years ago when this thing was first talked about online, I was still a regular over at CB100F.net and I still owned the nicest CB1100F I have ever seen to this day. Those guys are HUGE purists so I mocked up what a new 11F would look like with the old school bodywork.....might be a cool custom.

    I like the dark colored engine better than the chrome - any chance honda will bring them over with a blacked out engine?

    The model to be sold does have a black engine (with polished sidecovers).

    You could always have the colored bits wrapped (like you see cars and buses with ads on them) in virtually any color or pattern you'd like. And the vinyl wrap looks good and comes off easily when you sell the bike if the new owner wants red.

    I want something now so bought a 883 Sportster with 29 miles on it for about $3500 less than the cost of a CB1100. No valves to adjust and about as retro as you can get. Of course I started rideing Sportys back in 1969 and this will be about my 17th one. Speed and accelleration are secondary to me. I just like good looks and dependability. I also have a tremendous dealer close which is important. The CB is beautiful but so is this 883.

    Congrats on the 883. They are simple, fun, easy to ride motorcycles. I love my XR1200, but may have to think trade for the CB1100. Spoke with my sales guy and he said the 1100's are on order, but not coming to him until April. Guess I'll see after they arrive if it is more UNIQUE to me, than the XR and worth the trade. dd50

    I never was either, but another poster mentioned chopper Hondas, so I posted that for the young ones, that were never into that scene. Other than Harleys, the best looking chops of the 60's/70's were the Triumph twins. Awesome looking engine, in any style frame...

    Wonder where someone in the USA could acquire one of those silver Mugen mini fairings?

    I'm sure there will be someplace in the US that will import those tuner parts from Japan...

    If not, find a shop in Japan to sell it to you. I've done this in the past with places in Italy for Ducati parts.
