Modern. Classic.

Though the CB1100 pays homage to Honda’s long line of capable, reliable and fun street bikes, Honda wouldn’t look to the past without looking forward.

In addition to the new six-speed transmission on all CB1100s, this year, there’s a Deluxe model that adds twin exhaust pipes, a slightly larger fuel tank, and a stitched-look seat. The Deluxe model also comes with ABS.

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. The CB1100 Deluxe adds ABS for confident stopping in more challenging conditions.

Modern. Timeless. And Exactly What A Motorcycle Should Look Like.
With its exposed, air-cooled engine, steel chassis, minimal bodywork and standard riding position, the CB1100 pays homage to the classics of motorcycling. But twist the throttle, squeeze the brakes and flick it into a corner and you’ll discover that it’s also a totally modern machine, with great handling and plenty of power. That’s the Honda way—combining innovation and performance with style and function.

Timeless Instrumentation
The chrome-rimmed speedometer and tachometer are both analog and easy to read. What could be better than that? The new CB1100 also offers a digital clock, odometer and an updated trip computer for 2014.

41mm Front Fork
A traditional design, the 41mm front fork features spring preload adjustability and is plenty strong for sporty rides—along with the wide bar, it gives the CB1100 a light feel around town.

Triple Disc Brakes/Optional ABS
Nothing retro here: the CB1100’s huge twin front discs and single rear disc are drilled for lighter weight and less heat retention, and offer smooth, predictable, powerful stopping capability. The Deluxe model offers available ABS.

Four-Into-One Exhaust
The CB1100’s four-into-one pipe gives this bike a crisp sound, and the chrome finish is a great highlight, too.

Polished Aluminum Engine Covers
The polished aluminum accents on the CB1100 are more expensive, but they are an example of the quality, design and detail that make the CB1100 a uniquely premium motorcycle.

1142cc Air-Cooled Engine
With an engine this size, you get power everywhere—enough to go on a spirited street ride, an hour-long cruise or carry a passenger with ease.

Larger Fuel Tank (Deluxe Model)
The CB1100 Deluxe has a 0.5-gallon larger fuel tank than the standard model, allowing you to extend the distance (and enjoyment) between fuel stops.

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI)
Improved cold-weather startups, no-drama high-altitude riding and no choke are just three benefits of PGM-FI.

Comfortable Riding Position
Honda’s classic inline-fours were very comfortable, and it’s the same for the new CB1100. Ride it for 10 minutes or two hours and you’ll see that it’s one of the easiest-to-live-with machines in any class. For 2014, the Deluxe model adds a longer, stitched-look saddle.

Aluminum Swingarm
Combined with the CB1100’s steel-tube full-cradle twin-loop frame, the stout aluminum swingarm is part of the CB1100’s excellent handling package.

Twin-Shock Rear Suspension
Easy to adjust and equipped with preload adjustability, the CB1100’s rear suspension proves that the traditional design, done right, can still provide excellent handling characteristics.

Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS)
Honda’s ABS system, available on the Deluxe model, provides additional confidence when stopping in less-than ideal conditions.

Cast Wheels
Light and easy to keep clean, the CB1100 wheels contribute to the bike’s performance and handling, while acknowledging the timeless look of Honda’s classic machines.
