Honda have confirmed production of the CB1100 for 2010. The bike, which will be fitted with an 1,100cc air-cooled inline-four, will be officially unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in October this year.

In addition to the CB1100, Honda will also unveil the V4-engined VFR1200F, which will come equipped with the world’s first dual clutch transmission for large-displacement sportsbikes.

Finally, Honda will also show the DN-01 Touring Concept, the EVE-neo and EV Cub, their first electric scooters, and the CB1300 Super Four, CB1300 Super Touring and CB1300 Bol d’Or. Of course, there will also be the new VFR1200F, which is due to be officially unveiled on the 8th of this month. Sure looks like the Honda stand at this year’s Tokyo Show will be totally action-packed!

I like a good laugh but where's the punch line?

Sad that Honda didn't go head with the updated CBR1100R - I would have loved to ride that. The CB1100? Blah...

The EV Cub concept looks interesting and promising though. Pretty cool if they could keep the Cub naming going for another 50 years (if the earth hasn't melted by then)!

It's about time. there are pretty much only two kinds of bikes anyway, v twin cruisers and crotch rockets. some people don't want either one.

I wonder what it's going to cost.

Harboiled, you wouldnt know a good bike if it ran you over! This is Retro dude and its awsome to see the old style bikes coming bikes coming back. But you wouldnt know that unless you been riding for the last 25 years or so.

It would figure that I would be the one to hear the rumor that Honda, in its infinite wisdom, is not going to bring the 1100 nor the 1300 to the U.S. It is sad that in the past Honda also did not bring the 200 H.P. Civic Si here either. We are not good enough for Honda's "better stuff" here in the U.S.A., I guess. I really hope that the rumor is incorrect.

It is a shame to hear these things. And, it's best not to get your hopes up, because more likely than not, the only way anyone will be able to get their hands on most of these beauts is importing them. Honda does have a good reason for not bringing many, if any, UJMs/standards stateside; even though a fair number of motorcycle consumers love the idea of a comfortable, affordable standard, very few sell in the U.S. Obviously, we love our crotch rockets and fat, mushy cruisers. Honda isn't going to bring in something that they'll lose money on. And as far as the Si goes... it's the strength of our petrol and our emissions regulations. Europe is (a bit) less stringent, and they generally have higher octane gas more readily available (93 octane, how often does one see it, really?) With a touch more tuning and higher octane gas, our Si's would be essentially the same. But, who wants the latest Si/ Type R from Europe anyways? Can you say archaic torsion beam rear suspension?
