First Look: CB1100

Cycle News Staff | October 21, 2009

Honda revealed their return to air-cooled in-line four-cylinder motorcycles by unveiling the CB1100 at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show today.

The CB1100 features an all new engine design that is now fuel injected and tuned for low-end torque.

Forty years ago Honda announced the iconic CB750, a model that stayed in production until September, 2008. The CB1100 is, according to Honda, of similar weight and size of the CB750, but fitted with an engine having almost 50 percent more displacement.

The styling is sure to appeal to traditionalists, with plenty of chrome from end-to-end.

The CB1100 is planned to go on sale in Japan soon. No decision has been made regarding sales in North America.
