Tradition. Advanced. Air-cooled. With these keywords in mind, Honda’s engineers went about exploring and deepening the CB1100 concept. While incorporating LEDs, the single round headlight is in the classic style. Going from a 3-chamber to a 2-chamber structure, the short muffler helps provide a light riding feel with a deep, satisfying sound, while the fuel tank produced with a flangefree process adds to the exceptionally elegant form of the machine. The pressed aluminum side covers combine nicely with flashes of chrome, indicating the designers’ insistence that functional parts look equally great. It all adds up to a big presence on the street and a visceral experience for the rider, making this bike of particular appeal to the sophisticated motorcycle enthusiast.
