The dedicated CB1100 site:The powersports.honda.com site shows the engine as the same as the one we rode. It's mostly blacked out but has several chrome/silver accent pieces. Which site are you looking at?
Forget it Buzz. I told you, we're THROUGH since you've been boasting about your wild drinking trips to FL without a Quiznos or even a call for me.So Johnny Future is gonna buy a relic from the past.
It's time for some "viable technology" Kenneth.
No matter what the Euros get, we're getting the black engine in North America.
Well that's just wrong. Dead wrong. It's an outrage.No matter what the Euros get, we're getting the black engine in North America.
The CB750F of 78-81 had the engine mostly blacked out.Well that's just wrong. Dead wrong. It's an outrage.
This is a "retro" bike, and it's supposed to evoke the CB750. I don't remember any Honda CBs; from 350's, 500's, to 750's, that came with black engines, do you? They were all sliver, just like damn near every other UJM that was imported from the late '60's through the 80's. Putting a black engine in this bike is like Triumph painting a Bonneville in Kawasaki neon-green.
Who's in charge at Honda USA? I need names, email addresses, phone numbers.
That's true, but my point remains: the vast majority of CBs had silver engines, and, at least in my opinion, a retro bike like the CB1100 should too.The CB750F of 78-81 had the engine mostly blacked out.
This movie has made this mature rider want one more than I did before. It was just like riding the back roads in Ohio.Here's a little movie on the bike's development.

Me too. But I have to admit: it's sort of hard to get used to the idea that I'm relating to products and designs marketed for "mature" riders.This movie has made this mature rider want one more than I did before. It was just like riding the back roads in Ohio.
I think you made a good choice. Good luck. I did see a Brammo on the road today stopped at an intersection coming from the Ortega Highway. It's the first time I've seen one on the road.Because it's not electric.
I went to Riva today and put down a deposit on a CB1100 ABS. It'll be here 3/15. It's going to be a really long 5 weeks!
Anybody want to buy a really well-maintained VStrom 1000?
