The Honda CB 1100 honours the classic street retro bikes that inspired its design and modernises them to appeal to today’s rider. As well as looking good, the bike performs exceptionally well; vast and with a careful design, the CB 1100 is agile and comfortable on the longest adventures.
One look at the model is all that is needed to recognise the influence of classic street bike styling. The horizontal seat, slim fuel tank and circular lights are all borrowed from previous-generation motorcycles. A lack of fairings on either side expose the strong engine and give a clear view of advanced Honda engineering. The black paint option adds a sense of sophistication and makes the polished metal details stand out.
The classic CB 1100’s large headlamp is flanked by smaller circular indicator lights at the front, and the same at the rear. Two instrument dials between the handlebars are also finished with this round shape to match the side mirrors.
If you do carry a pillion passenger, they can instantly find the most supportive position in the saddle by resting on the well-positioned folding foot peg.
The bike is designed for people who simply love to ride and has been equipped with a responsive 1140cc fuel-injected four-cylinder engine for this reason. A responsive throttle action sends power through a six-speed gearbox as soon as you request it. The model has also been tuned to produce a generous amount of torque for rapid acceleration at any rev range.
The chassis and suspension set-up keeps the ride agile and smooth, while dual 296mm front disc brakes join a 256mm rear disc for confident slowing and stopping. Completing the appeal of the bike is the throaty sound of the four-into-one exhaust system.
