Does The CB1100 Tick The Boxes?

It’s been a long time coming – in every sense of the expression – but the CB1100 might, just MIGHT, have made that wait worthwhile. Six years after the prototype was first unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Show and a further three since a domestic market version went on sale in Japan in 2010, the Euro-spec version of the CB1100,...

Like the Bike, saw it at one of it's many unveilings,last year, not keen on the price not when you compare it to many more "modern" offerings.

I really hate the.... " Does it tick all the boxes type question"

Has anyone ever answered yes?

Sort of want

But if I had £9,000 burning a hole in my pocket, I could find many bikes that I definitely want.

Seems like a heck of an expensive way to recapture your lost yoof, but a lot of people pay more for less Harley.

CB1100

I agree with burningbush, 2 x 2:1's would be much better, 4:1 looks rubbish especially with a massive end can like the modern bikes have. looks more like the 750's and 900's of the 80's to me if you ignore the chrome, Just not sure about an 1100, to me a 750, 800 or 900 with loads of torque for overtaking and 'A' road blasting and a max speed of 120 is plenty for a situp and beg naked

If it was my money, I'd go for a Yamaha XJR1300 which is £7999, quite a saving on the price of this boring looking bike and I know the Yam is a good bike coz I've had one.  I'm secretly tempted to buy another, although I am disappointed it now has a 4-1 whereas my old one was the two pipe model.
