Love the clean looks. Still partial to the Triumph Bonnie in dark British racing green.

"...hoping Honda finds a way to bring the CB1100’s price point more in line with its competition. For example, Harley’s 2013 Sportster 1200 SuperLow starts at $8099, while the base model Bonneville and its 865cc engine starts even lower, at $7700. For a modern standard with simple, retro styling, those price points would seem to be far more appealing to that curious bystander at whom Honda’s so obviously aiming, or at the re-entry rider who’s looking for an economical but stylish reason to get back on two wheels."

Sounds like this would be the return of the CB750, in pre-Nighthawk styling. Update to fuel injection would be required, but everything else should already be in the parts bins. Using the current Honda playbook they could do an early Goldwing, a cafe racer, and a standard.

I've thought about what bike I'd use to ride around the world, and the CB750 would be it, due to availability and ease of repair.

No fair. The rest of the world gets an 883 engine, but MO gets a special 1200!

I tend to agree with the idea that this thing should not have it's bag cut off at 7000RPM. Not a Camry? Well put. If I want a stroll in the park sort of bike, it's not going to be this. I'd just buy a Rebel 250.

Cool British Twin?

So here we're looking at a Honda 1100 cc inline four, or a British twin? And a British twin that starts and runs every day? No contest.

If you want a British Twin that starts and runs every day, get the modern Triumph.

I had both, a 72 Interstate and a 1975 750. The Norton was much more fun and much more comfortable.

A 3.9 gal fuel tank is ridiculous and is why I'd never consider one. The '83 CB1100F had a 5.8 gallon tank and this one should, too. Especially if all it can manage is fuel mileage in the 40's.

Who in the bloody hell let the unnamed one back through the turnstile?

Oh, we're ignoring him, right?

Saw the CB11 at the NY show this year. Nice. But it made me a little drowsy. Guess it's not for me.

Saw one in the dealer last weekend. Nice looking bike and would love to ride one, but really nothing exciting about it.
