Video: Honda CB1100 goes on sale in Japan

Honda’s eagerly-awaited new retro roadster, the CB1100, has just gone on sale in Japan accompanied by this official promo video – but it still looks unlikely it’ll ever be coming to the UK.  

The 1140cc, dohc inline four rekindles the classic style of iconic Honda inline fours such as the CB750, puts out 87bhp with a kerb weight of 248kg. Suspension is by 41mm conventional forks at the front with a pair of preload adjustable Showa shocks at the rear. The bike is available in red, white or black and ABS is an option. 

Until now, Honda UK has stated that it is unlikely the CB will be brought into the UK but we’ll be bringing you the full story in next week’s MCN.
