This showed up at the Osaka Motorcycle Show last month, Honda’s existing CB1100 all dolled up in a very upscale way, bobbed out back and minus its passenger seat. The gas tank’s been replaced by an aluminum one, minus the typical seam and maybe a little bigger capacity. The swingarm is a big boxy unit swinging from Öhlins shocks, and it’s packing a modern radial tire on a 17-inch wheel just like the front. Also in front are a chunkier fork, bigger brakes and a swell LED headlight. Spent exhaust gases exit via Over Racing system.


Look out Thruxton! If Honda ever actually produced anything this cool anymore we wouldn’t know how to act.
