So the cb1100f is coming. The 919 wasn't enough of a disaster. Now a new CBR1000 big bore naked (remember 93-94) is going to fly? The fact that I happen to like them sure doesn't make them sell very well. ZRX1200R which I bought new sure hit "cult" bike status rather quickly.
Welcome to the country of chrome or plastic.

Actually, no. According to the first ride stuff I've read, there are some small differences and it makes about 130hp. They did say it's really good, though. MCN's only real b*tch is that it might be a bit too civilized. Typical gripe about Hondas.

It's not coming here, at least anytime soon. Honda designed this bike specifically for Europe.
