Honda CB1100 finally comes to UK

The air-cooled retro CB1100 will finally be reaching UK shores. The fuel-injected 1140cc DOHC inline four boasts 87bhp, tips the scales at 247kg, and the vertically challenged will appreciate the 775mm seat height. It may be retro, but it also sports Honda's Combined ABS braking system. There's still no word on a production CB1100R, sadly. Honda has also announced updates to some...

The air-cooled retro CB1100 is verrryyyy nice. Still wouldn't make me part with my uber lush T100 though.

By comparison,

a Harley-Davidson XR1200 has only 70HP at the crank and is 265kg wet.

Agree with Supermario........

The CB1100R is the bollocks and they can stick this version back in the shed.With all the competion in retro's and sudo retro's i can't see them selling many plus it's direct competition for their own CB1300S ,which is a far better bike.

I was thinking they could stick it somewhere else, but the shed'll do for now!

And I used to think that the XJR1300 I had nearly 10 years ago was heavy at 228kg! And this is supposed to be progress????

...weighs 245kg wet. Still, I wonder why the air cooled smaller engined Honda is 2kg heavier.

zrx 1200 daeg

It's a shame they haven't brought the new zrx to anywhere other than japan, gorgeous retro but has decent power, and not a crazy amount of weight. Riding a bike that heavy every day gets to you

Must be getting old and pharty, 'cos I rather like the basic look of the 1100. It would look better with a 4 into 2 exhaust, but I'm sure the aftermarket peeps will get on the case fairly quickly and assist with styling and performance tweaks. Sorry if I missed it, but what's the likely price? I really fancy a change and this may fit the bill. Having said that, an original CB 1100 R would look good underneath my tush, and a Z1, an H2, a Jota, Le Mans, Cali.......phuqqit, I hate being poor!

You maybe right, but is the figure for the Honda wet or dry, it doesn't say? I'm willing to bet dry! They have lost the plot when it comes to weight, look at the Deauville, VFR1200 etc. No effort made to lighten them. We're not all built like He Man!

If we're comparing lard

A Suzuki Bandit 650SA weighs a quarter of a ton wet.

Yes, it's underpowered and over weight, and likely over priced too, but the target market will be blokes who couldn't afford a bike like that in the 1980s but have paid off the mortgages and can now relive their youth.  It'll be bought by the heart, not the head.
