The 2014 Honda CB1100 and CB1100 EX look damn cool! Revisiting the 1980s was never better...

Honda have released official high-res pics, specs and details of the 2014-spec CB1100, which gets a new 6-speed gearbox, revised instrumentation and turn signals, repositioned headlight and ‘graphite black’ paint. The standard CB1100 has, according to Honda, “evolved into a bare-bones cafĂ© racer” for 2014, while another variant – the CB1100 EX – is a bit more retro, with wire-spoke wheels and twin exhaust silencers.

Staying true to its 1980s roots, the 2014 Honda CB1100 is still as basic as its gets – steel tube double-cradle chassis, air-cooled, fuel-injected 1,140cc inline-four that produces 88 horsepower and 93Nm of torque, 41mm telescopic forks at the front and adjustable twin shocks at the back, twin 296mm brake discs with 4-piston Nissin callipers at the front, 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels (shod with 110/80 and 140/70 tyres, front and rear), and an upright riding position for all-day riding comfort. ABS is standard and the fuel economy, at 18.5kml, is not too bad at all, though the bike is a bit heavy with its kerb weight figure of 247 kilos.

We think the Honda CB1100 is simply brilliant – it looks beautiful and while it may not have the outright performance potential of, say, a Fireblade SP, it’s an honest motorcycle which is likely to be much loved and appreciated by those with a fond memories of the 1980s…
