Poll: Would you consider buying the Honda CB1100?

Honda wants to know if you would buy the CB1100 which was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show for the first time in full production form. At the moment there aren’t plans to bring the bike to Europe or anywhere else outside Japan because Honda is concerned it won’t be able to see enough to keep the price realistic. In Japan it’s...

No

The price is outrageous too.  25 years ago, I'd have said yes.

No

Too expensive & not different enough for the money, I'd rather buy Hondas own CB1300 or Yamahas XJR1300 instead. However, I would definately consider buying the CB1100R.

YES to CB1100

Lovely looking bike... would definitely consider. The price needs to be right though... circa £6k, and it musn't weigh too much. Bikini faired version would be nice as well. Whether its down to exchange rate issues or not, there's too many bikes creeping up to £10k and above, where they are very hard to justify or afford especially in these tough times.

The problem is...

...what we now expect for the money. I'll vote `yes`, but not at any price, only the RIGHT price. Honda have a predilection for over-pricing that is completely at odds with the harsh economic realities of todays recession-hit world, so I have no confidence in their ability to get this right, even though in terms of look and design it's almost there. `Almost` as in it should have been a 750...

A bike has to have something that 'grabs you' make you buy it and so far retro bikes havent done it for me, So at the moment it has to be no.

Nice of Honda to ask though seing as they didnt bother before they dumped the new VFR on us.

Yes

A great demonstration of the choice available to us at the shops.

I clearly sit on the opposite side of the fence to Greg and to me this looks like a beauty with Honda build to match, so I'm a definite yes.

It looks like a Triumph but without the  black puddle underneath it.

CB1100F

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.

...at the right price and if the final design is as striking as the images released by MCN in July (especially the blue and silver one) rather than the monotone offering above.

...and if it is supposed to be a "proper bike" using metal instead of plastic for the mudguards and side panels would be good.

CB1100

I will be in the market for a retro early next year, but there is a good choice available for less than £6,500, so as long as its priced properly, ie with due regard to current financial strictures, I would definitely consider it.  Above that price - forget it
