Where do “Old School” and “New Age” meet? Out on the road and at Central Florida PowerSports where the all-new Retro looking Honda CB 1100 just came in.
This bike is a very cool blend of Old School and New Age benefits built on the same architecture as the CB 750 with came out in 1969 but with modern benefits such as fuel injection and a powerful 1140 cc engine.
This awesome machine is seemingly timeless and inspiring. After sitting on it for a few minutes, I can picture myself leaving in the morning on this bike and not returning until the sun goes down or I run out of road. Plenty of power to cruise the highways alone or carry a passenger for an afternoon cruise around town.
From the Honda website: “With its exposed, air-cooled engine, steel chassis, minimal bodywork and standard riding position, the CB1100 looks like a modern classic. But one ride will tell you this is a totally modern machine, with great handling and plenty of power. That's the Honda way - combining innovation and performance with style and function.”
“There’s something about a good, twin-loop full-cradle steel chassis in basic black that not only looks great, but offers plenty of modern chassis geometry too. You’ll find the new CB1100 handles as well as it looks.”
“The CB1100 features front and rear disc brakes, and the thoroughly modern option of Honda’s Combined Anti-lock Brake System. That makes for powerful, sure stops. Because you never know what the open road is going to throw at you.”
From motorcycl.usa: “Honda aims to bring back an old classic with a new twist in the form of the 2013 CB1100. “Timeless Look, Inspired Performance” - these are the key words Honda Motorcycles uses when describing its new retro-styled machine. The timeless look refers to the bikes styling, featuring the perfect balance of old school and new school. A relaxed standard seating position allows for diverse riding styles for any kind of environment. The fuel tank retains a classic shape to match the older yet classy styling of the handlebar bend, instrument cluster and tail assembly and really brings out the early Honda four-cylinder trends.”
If you have any doubts, or as I suspect are intrigued by this cool machine, come to Central Florida PowerSports to see and experience it yourself.
