The Honda CB 1100 is the epitome of retro style. This powerful bike combines classic street styling with innovative technology and exciting performance that will appeal to any capable rider. It’s spirited, feisty, and a true adventurer’s bike with flawless performance and surefooted handling.
The lines are sublime, subtle, and sophisticated, so this beast of a bike looks as good around town as it does on the open road. The bike delivers on performance too, making the CB 1100 agile, rider-friendly, and comfortable on even the longest adventures.
One look is all it takes to recognise the influence of classic street bike styling, and the Honda CB1100’s impeccable pedigree. The horizontal seat, slim fuel tank and circular lights are all borrowed from previous-generation motorcycles, but with an updated styling that prevents this Honda heavyweight from looking dated.
The strong engine is on full display, and the lack of fairings gives the bike a clean, uncluttered look. The retro styling makes the engine a feature of the overall design, allowing spectators to admire the Honda CB1100’s engineering prowess and raw power. Complimenting the shining chrome is a flawless black paint option, which adds a sense of sophistication and contrasts perfectly with the polished metal details.
The ergonomically sound riding position means that the Honda CB 1100 is not only practical, but a real pleasure to ride, whether you’re commuting or touring long distances. There is room for two, with the pillion passenger experiencing the comfort of a retro-style seat and superior rear shocks that smooth out any bumps in the road. Because of the carefully balanced proportions, carrying a passenger will not significantly affect the bike’s manoeuvrability.
The Honda CB 1100’s large headlamp is flanked by smaller circular indicator lights at the front, and corresponding rear lights that carry the design feature to the rear. Two round instrument dials between the handlebars match the side mirrors, creating a consistent design flow throughout the bike.
If you do carry a pillion passenger, they can instantly find the most supportive position on the seat by resting their feet on the folding foot pegs.
The bike is designed for people who simply love to ride. The CB1100 is equipped with a torquey, 1140cc fuel-injected four-cylinder engine that delivers consistent yet controllable power bands throughout the rev range. A smooth and responsive throttle action sends power through a six-speed gearbox at the twist of your wrist. The CB 1100 is tuned to produce a generous amount of both bottom end and mid-range torque, with a long-legged top end for effortless touring.
The chassis and suspension set-up keep the ride agile and smooth, while dual 296mm front disc brakes compliment a 256mm rear disc for responsive stopping, even in wet conditions. Completing the appeal of the bike is the throaty sound of that retro four-into-one exhaust system.
