Though the CB1100 pays homage to Honda's long line of capable, reliable and fun street bikes, we wouldn't look to the past without looking forward. This is a modern bike for riders that love to ride. Its1140cc, fuel-injected inline four is powerful and smooth, its chassis and suspension are agile and responsive, and it's comfortable around town or on weekend rides. It’s a bike a whole new generation of riders is going to appreciate.
Transverse-Four Engine: Honda’s inline-fours are timeless—some of the best engines in all of motorcycling. The CB1100 carries that tradition and takes it to the next level, displacing 1140cc and featuring air cooling to look the way many think a bike should—why hide under a fairing?
Steel Chassis: Honda’s original inline-fours and their Grand Prix bikes of the Hailwood era featured twin-loop full-cradle steel chassis in basic black. They looked great, but the CB1100 offers plenty of modern chassis geometry, too. You’ll find this machine handles as well as it looks.
Triple Disc Brakes: Honda’s original CB750 introduced disc brakes to motorcycling’s mainstream. The new CB1100 offers triple discs with huge calipers for excellent stopping ability.
