If you can’t wait to experience the Honda CB1100 introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show, take a look at this video from Honda. It includes some footage of the rider’s point-of-view, and you can even hear the engine note. At least initially, it does not appear that Honda will be offering the production version of the CB1100 in the U.S. Here is a link to the video.

- PLEASE! I’ve wanted the CB1300 or GSX1400 or XJR1300 for years. Can someone please import a big bore retro UJM? Aircooled would be a plus. I fear if it’s Honda they won’t or price it so high it will never sell. Shoulda got the ZRX! Mark
- I started riding in 1973 so big air-cooled fours are very cool to me.
I owned ’94 CB1000 for a couple years and have regretted selling it
ever since. I would love to have one of these, problem is they waited
until the economy went to hell. Oh, and they’re not shipping here, I
forgot that very small detail! Bob
- I want one. Right now! This bike is Honda’s heritage. A descendent of the CB750K. No V-twin faux Harley. No chopper clone. No scooter-hybrid. The real deal. What Honda invented but updated. I love it. I only wish the video had the rider running it up the tach so we could hear that lovely engine sing! Frank
- I know this has been discussed before, but it really ticks me off when corps like Honda and Yamaha, have these great scooters and bikes everywhere, but here in the USA. I’ve owned a lot of bikes and scooters over the years, from the Yamaha Zuma 50 to the BMW K1200R. Suzuki did send us the TU250, and its on my list. At present I am riding a Sportster Iron with the NHRS 1250cc Kit. I refuse to buy another Honda or Yamaha until they start sending something besides cruisers and sportbikes. Bob
- I imagine we’re all glad to see that Honduh hasn’t spared any expense in multimedia development this year. It’s not working for me. They’re over-compensating. Ted
