There can be no doubt that retro is very popular right now, and with more folks than just your token hipsters to be sure. Honda takes that resurgent interest to the bank with its CB 1100 EX that brings ’70s style and modern performance together in a bid to ride that current wave of popularity. Granted, this bike has been available in other markets, but Honda, in its infinite wisdom, has made the decision to bring it back to U.S. shores for 2017. And the peasants rejoice.
The 1,140 cc mill sports components and features only dreamt of back in the day, but retains the classic looks along with the rest of the bike for a total package that would blend in easily with a pack of four-cylinder UJMs — just before it left them all in the dust. Let’s check out this fine little ride and see what all Honda packed on for our riding enjoyment.
