Best Place For it Japan

Bliemy how retro tame, so if a CB1100 is likened to a Tiger Moth does this mean my CB1300 could be a likened to Hawker Hurricane?

Honda Horses for Courses

See the big picture with this, pun intended.

The target market is clearly the successful, professional, second childhood, mild-midlife crisis kind of chap. Carefully chosen, non threatening, beige casual style jacket and loafers along with retro open face helmet make a clear statement that this has nothing to do with being a "biker rebel", no risk taking or anti social statement even hinted at. The pressed Levi's Sunday riders will love it and if big H makes a profit selling bikes then that’s good for all of us. If you lusted after an early king of the road CB750K when you were 16, which was heavier and slower, you have to smile. Kind of pretty, pretty ironic!

Why...

do some people always assume that because a bike has no fairing, doesn't go off road or isn't the size of a small car that it is obviously for people of a certain age. Surely the sports bike and the BMW tourer is much more likely to be seen on our roads today ridden by just those people. Real bikers go naked except on the track. Love the bike and as long as it rides well I will certainly be considering the purchase much more interesting than the VFR.

The Bikes OK, But..

It's the advert that's the problem.

An insult to any bikers intelligence, especially that vacuous whiney song, what were Honda thinking of?

This video is all about selling the punter a "life-style", to use a media, wanker-word.

This is what we get with all the car adverts you see on tv and cinema, they tell you sweet fanny adams about the product.

What sticks in my throat is that if you buy that companies new car/bike/outboard motor, then you are paying for these expensive un-informative adverts like an extra stealth tax.

My advice for anyone contemplating buying a new Honda: Buy a used older fireblade or spend your hard - earned dosh with Kawasaki.

Evidently, another view

I was reminded of the days of the late 60's when watching the CB1100 video. It was a good time, a time that felt good, a time as a young boy I had been riding for only about 5 years.  I'm more than sure a bike with "just" 80 horsepower and modern legs would be fun today. One does not need to push the performance envelope to have fun on a motorcycle. If that's how you get your jollies then there are plenty of bikes to choose from. I'm willing to bet the CB1100 provides a darn good ride, a ride that will take many riders back to the essence of their early days of riding. I think it's a bike I wouldn't mind having in the stable.

Besides, the proof is in the ride. You can sit back all day and take shots at something you don't want to like but you don't really know until you give it a chance.
