New Honda CB 1100

I just saw this on anothe forum. Power, weight and price compare very favorably with the Thunderbird.

I like it! I think it may vie for a position in my garage. Assuming I can make it invisible and hide it from the wife.

I love this bike. I have been dreaming about owning the CB 1100f for 2 years just hoping they bring it to the US. Looks like they are finally releasing the bike in the UK for 2013. Hope the US is next. A modern air cooled 4 cylinder with available ABS. I love my Bonneville but it may have to go if this bike arrives on US shores.

It was announced as a new model for the US starting in the spring.

It does compare well with the Bonnie, just one problem. It's not a Triumph, it's a Honda, not there's anything wrong with that.

Sallright but Emissions regs are killing bikes. A ten year old Kawasaki zephyr(similar nay near identical) makes more power.



And arguably looks much nicer.

I'm sure some will pick it apart but I for one am glad we're getting something besides another SS or cruiser here in the US.

i think its a good lookin standard, and an excellent replacement for the nighthawk they canned in 2003.

the 1100cc powerplant, should be nice on the highway, though i personally don't care for inline 4's power delivery

I concur. I've always had a soft spot for big standards...sold my '05 Bandit 1200 (the last air/oil cooled one) to buy the Bonneville. I have also had a ZRX1200 on the brain for a while now...may scratch that itch one of these days...
