2011 Honda CB1100 Naked
King of the Open Class.
For time-honoured riding joy check out Honda’s CB1100 available in 2011 in elegant Dark Metallic Black and Navy Blue.
With its all-round functionality, easy performance and heritage styling this distinguished motorcycle will deliver ‘wow factor’ on every ride.
The CB1100 offers a sublime two-wheeled experience thanks to its smooth power delivered from an 1140cc inline four-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and an 8500 rpm rev range. Fuel-injection helps achieve fuel economy while a small oil-cooler, combined with 2mm engine cooling fins ensures no overheating.
Visually, the CB1100 is classic perfection incorporating a large, clean engine that lends the rider into a purposeful, forward-biased stance, perfectly accentuated with the crisp, striking lines of the fuel tank. With a seat height of just 775 mm, riders of all heights will feel comfortable swinging a leg over the CB1100.
The clean, simple wheels integrated with the front brake disc carriers, the analog clocks with the large digital readout in the middle, the aircraft-style fuel filler cap, the minimalist seat and the Honda badges all give the CB1100 a unique vintage look.
It’s a Honda and the CB1100 combines timeless styling with Honda’s world renowned innovative technology.
New for 2011 the CB1100 is available from late March in Dark Metallic Black and Navy Blue.
RRP is $14,990 (plus on road costs).
The highly anticipated CB1100F is set to hit Australia this month with fans lining up to get their hands on the latest release in this universally loved lineage of motorcycles.
As an ode to the much loved Honda CB750 Four, all round function, combined with easy performance and heritage styling mark the distinguishing characteristics of the new CB1100F.
Knowing that it’s a Honda, means the bike comes complete with all the standard-setting quality and reliability for which the manufacturer is world renowned.
The CB1100F offers a two-wheeled experience that is simply sublime thanks to its smooth power delivered from an 1140cc inline four-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and an 8500 rpm rev range. Fuel-injection helps achieve decent fuel economy while a small oil-cooler, combined with 2mm engine cooling fins ensures no overheating.
The front suspension comprises 41mm standard forks while the rear is suspended with a pair of preload-adjustable Showa dampers.
Visually, the CB1100 is classic perfection. Its impressive looks incorporate the large, clean engine that lends the rider into a purposeful, forward-biased stance, perfectly accentuated with the crisp, striking lines of the fuel tank. With a seat height of just 775 mm, riders of all heights will feel comfortable swinging a leg over the CB.
The clean, simple wheels integrated with the front brake disc carriers, the analog clocks with the large digital readout in the middle, the aircraft-style fuel filler cap, the minimalist seat and the Honda badges all give the CB1100F a unique vintage look whilst incorporating all the mod cons of a new bike.
Arriving in Australia in late May, the CB1100F is available in Candy Glory Red and Pearl Milky White. RRP is $14990 (plus on road costs).

The Details make the Difference.
The CB1100 Naked is a perfect example of typical Honda industry-leading innovation. Combining tons of power, light weight, and refined, responsive handling with drop-dead good looks, it’s equally at home carving your favorite canyon as it is collecting wins on World Superbike podiums. That’s the CB1100 Naked—the ultimate liter-class sportbike experience.
Stop That! – The CB1100 Naked (along with the CBR600RR) are breaking new ground by offering one of the most innovative braking systems ever: Honda’s revolutionary Combined ABS.
Combined Anti-Lock Braking (C-ABS) – All-new, electronically controlled Combined ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less than ideal conditions. Electronic measurement of rider input on each brake lever permits application of only the front or rear brake in some cases, while the system combines both brakes in others.
Unit Pro-Link Suspension – By eliminating the frame-mounted top shock mount, Unit Pro-Link isolates the chassis from bumps, resulting in more precise handling and better traction. Developed on Honda’s championship-winning MotoGP bikes, it’s a perfect example of the CBR’s superior engineering.
MotoGP-Style Exhaust – The CB1100 Naked’s lowboy muffler not only looks cool and sounds great, it also offers a handling advantage by moving the silencer lower and closer to the bike’s center of mass. GP bikes do that to make the machines more responsive, and you get the same benefit with the CB1100 Naked.
Slipper Clutch – The CB1100 Naked uses a patented slipper-clutch design with a special cam-assist mechanism for easier actuation. That means you get a light feel at the lever, the feedback a cable system provides, and all the backtorque-limiting benefits a slipper clutch provides.
Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis – By varying the wall thickness of the chassis’ main elements, our engineers can fine-tune chassis rigidity precisely, and in individual areas. You get a frame that offers the perfect balance of a stable riding platform but with no harshness.
Dual-Stage Fuel Injection – Two injectors per cylinder – one primary and one secondary – controlled by an ECU that senses RPM and throttle opening, ensure both low- and high-rpm performance. You get near instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.
Centrally Located Fuel Tank – Centrally located fuel tank increases mass centralization for a more compact frame design.
Idle Air Control Valve – Idle air control valve minimizes torque reaction and smoothes response to small throttle changes through gradual reductions of air and fuel intake when throttle is opened and closed.
Two-Stage Ram Air – Nose mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox, for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.
Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) Inverted Fork – The HMAS cartridge fork features an exclusive internal piston construction. This innovative design employs smaller-diameter pistons to keep oil velocity high for improved damping characteristics and an expanded range of adjustability. The result: you get more precise suspension performance, especially over smaller surface irregularities.
Radial Front-Brake Calipers – The CB1100 Naked’s radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers are stiffer, for better brake feel and performance. Each caliper uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons that squeeze lightweight 320mm floating discs for exceptional stopping power.
Honda Electronic Steering Damper
Power is one thing, but the key to a great sportbike is how it handles, and that’s where the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) comes in. Compact, unobtrusive and super-smart, it helps maintain smoothly predictable high-speed handling and low-speed maneuverability.
