2013 Honda CB1100

Mixing naked and classic Honda style with thoroughly modern and engaging performance, the exquisitely built four-cylinder CB1100 has a presence, and personality, all of its own.

The Honda CB1100 mixes originality with a timeless sense of design, and substantial character. It represents a finely balanced blend of performance, with broad capacity, ability and adaptability.

Unmistakably Honda, the CB1100's clean lines elegantly echo the past. The large round headlight, scalloped fuel tank (proudly detailed with the Honda Wing) and silver painted sidepanels add style and substance, while familiar analog dials, slim seat, side-swept 4-2-1 exhaust pipe and chromed front and rear mudguards provide the finishing touches, gently stirring memories of how motorcycles used to look and, as importantly, feel.

Perhaps it's what you don't see that matters more with the CB1100; this is the motorcycle at its most elemental. A steel double cradle frame houses the engine, with 41mm conventional telescopic forks and twin rear shocks providing compliant and finely tuned suspension. The CB1100's riding position is upright and relaxed, a perfect platform from which to watch the world slide by.

From the outset of the project, the CB1100's development engineers decided to use the word 'design' rather than 'styling' for their new bike. Utilising the characteristics of many materials - metal, plastic, leather and rubber - they created individual parts that are both beautiful and functional, and bought them together to stunning effect.


Honda, as a company, looks to the future; yet always with one eye on, and great respect, for the past. To that end, the Honda CB1100 mixes originality with a timeless sense of design, and substantial character. It represents a finely balanced blend of performance, with broad capacity, ability and adaptability.

But it also has something else, almost an intangible - a small part of the soul of a true original: the Honda CB750 Four.

The CB750 Four has cast a long and influential shadow over motorcycling since its debut in 1969. Soichiro Honda, ever the engineer, leading an engineering company, wanted to prove that there was more to the two-wheeled formula than small and medium capacity twin-cylinder motorcycles, and did just that with the ground-breaking 749cc, 67bhp air-cooled, SOHC four-cylinder four-stroke power unit.

A competent chassis - with another first, a single disc brake up front - provided handling and stopping power to match the engine, and the CB750 Four was an instant success. The mass-production superbike had been born, the blueprint drawn for the future.

Motorcycling has changed a great deal over the last 5 decades since the very first CB - the Benly CB92 - was introduced. Motorcyclists themselves have changed too: while many still aspire to the ultimate performance available, just as many today perhaps have other reasons to own a motorcycle.

Some are looking back, at the bike they wanted when they were young but simply couldn't afford. Others want something that performs like a new machine, but with a certain, classic look that lends retro-heritage to a contemporary lifestyle.

And some riders just want an exquisitely engineered motorcycle that blends real-world usability with an honest sense of history. The common factor is fun.

As suggested on our Cool Wall by popular demand TMW presents the CB1100 this week! Please note: This year (2013) for the first time, the 2013 Honda CB1100 Naked will be available in Europe (previously only available in Australia and Japan). Will it come to the USA and Canada? Hopefully yes as Honda USA/Canada has not released all their 2013's yet and you never know the CB1100 might just be in the line up... (Honda if you are reading this, bring it in!)

What the lady said.....and judging by the votes so far, 11 for awesome and one fail along with one uncool, I'd say the voting on this bike is all but over already.
Always ask why.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'm not into retro...there are still examples of actual '80s bikes...I prefer the more modern looking bikes, still naked but the amber signals and the big round mirrors just don't do it for me...not sure how it would sell here. Looks like a nice and comfortable ride though, ready for an after market shield...

And on a retro bike, why a 14.6L fuel tank...good consumption, comfortable looking bike...small tank??

Voted: Uncool

Later.

Entropy has reached its minimum value. 0K on the Kelvin scale.

IMHO, this is the coolest bike that has ever appeared on the cool wall.

(But madjak30 has a great point; a 14.6 liter tank is tiny.)

They should have made it look more like the SOHC 750 bodystyle design. The DOHC 750 engine is the better engine but the bodystyle of the SOHC 750 is much more retro cool.

I voted awesome. I really like this bike, and with that kind of mileage, I think the tank is plenty big.

Agreed - the tank is sufficient for the fuel consumption of this bike. +our little Monster only has a 14l tank but the range is more than enough considering that it gets great mileage. Still awesome for me.

That mileage is kind of bogus, it is only obtained at a constant 60kmph; we were talking about that on another thread here at TMW. I'm sure the real mileage will be something around low to high 40 mpg.

I dunno - to me that still adds up to 175 miles or better of range using your " real world" figures. As a guy who toured on a VTR1000 for 11 years getting 175 km to the tank, I would have loved this kind of range....

About the milage. It seems the engine was tuned to be less stressed and thus that is why Honda is getting such great gas milage also the less stressed engine will last forever as well.

There is something great to be said about an engine like that.

I like it. I liked the air-cooled inline fours before I even owned my first motorcycle. If they bring it here, I might even sell my '82 Suzuki GS1100GL so I can have the downpayent to buy one.

I voted: Awesome.

What a really, really cool Retro bike and why didn't Honda make something just like this years ago? No matter, the market is ripe with bikers like myself (and older) who enjoy a classy retro where power isn't as important as style and looks. The Honda designers really thought this one out and I'm actually quite surprised it wasn't launched in North America first rather than Japan/Australia/Europe. Didn't the first CB750K's come to the USA first?

Speaking of which, why didn't they use a 750cc engine and really match the CB750K rather than an 1100cc? Kinda strange if you ask me, but it still looks killer IMO and sub-100hp is just fine with me. Now if Honda can get the bike around $10k get ready for a retro resurgence!

....about the MPG, pretty darn amazing! If it truly gets that great MPG then no need at all for a huge tank.

True dat!

In fact, wouldn't it be cool to see more retro bikes like a REAL Kawasaki Z (yes, like the Z1 or Z900), even a GPz, a GS750 or even a Yamaha Seca 650R (oh please) come up again? What about a turbo 500cc? :drool:

In fact, I think Suzuki should have made a GS750E from the 2000+ GS500E they had rather than discontinue it, wouldn't that be cool? Well, I guess Andrea's GSX750Y was the closest to we will get to that! viewtopic.php?t=38396

They tried it with the Zephyr 1100 which is one of the nicest retro bikes to date. Too bad that it was overpriced and they hardly sold any of them....

Funny enough I'm doing a 41 year "ultimate guide to the Z" and the Zephyr series of course is in there. In fact, I looked at buying a 1993 Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 which the seller said the "only one in Alberta". It was a good series but by the time the Zephyr's rolled into the show room Kawasaki's "Z" wasn't more than a shadow of the original Z concept and as you said, overpriced too. Things started falling apart for the "Z" as the top of the line sport engine when Kawasaki introduced the GPz's.

While I personally like the look of the bike, I think they sat around the boardroom and said, hey we need a retro to compete with all the other retro's out there, lets go bigger and better. For this I voted "fail" i think they could have easily produced a far better bike in the 750 class. Modern tech would have given it everything it needed with a smaller price tag and just as much performance. Plus the added "I would rather ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow"

I think they would have had bigger sales and a bigger following with a smaller CC bike.
