Dear all,

Well if you narrow it down to Hondas then I think their best effort was the early 80's CB1100F with the bikini fairing, followed by the CBX 6 cylinder even though Benelli beat them to the punch.

Mileage is in the mid to upper 30's, but I love my Super Blackbird 1100XX!

Anthing built by Honda prior to 1975 was over-engineered and indestructable. If you want reliability and good mileage, along with an excellent powerband, a 350 twin is hard to beat (1968 thru 1973).

And your 125 is a great bike because it makes no power, and as such will never wear out. It's also good for chasing turtles around a closed race track. Some turtle chases on a 125 Honda four strokes have taken days, weeks even. A very exhausting form of competition.

According to my opinion Honda CB1100F SuperSport was the last and arguably most desirable of the CB series. It is my favourite bike in Honda.

Default Honda

I was lucky enough to have a CL175,CB350,VFR800 and CB750 among others. The best Bike out of these for me was the CB750.Other than changing the oil and tires I don't think I had to do anything else. It ran great and started every time.

i have a valkyrie interstate and i love that bike. it epitomizes the power cruiser to me. i would however like cruise control and better fuel mileage but beyond that i simply love this machine.
best honda ever i would agree the cb1100f was by far their best best bike. in my humble opinion.

You're supposed to put a when you make a remark like that so people know you aren't on crack.

I had a '73 CB550 that was really nice, it was smooth, fast, and fun.
