    1. Introduction

    The CB1100, brought to Europe in 2013, met a growing demand for a modern Honda motorcycle that paid homage to the company’s legendary four-cylinder past. With its classic and evocative lines, handsome air-cooled engine and the sort of quality and attention to detail that inspires devotion and real pride of ownership, it was an immediate success. For 2014, two CB1100 models will be available. The standard bike has evolved into a bare-bones café racer base, available in a striking all-black paint scheme, while the CB1100 EX* adds further subtle difference and enhancements.

    2. Model Overview

    The CB1100 is the motorcycle at its most elemental. A steel double cradle frame houses the 1,140cc inline four-cylinder engine, with 41mm conventional telescopic forks and twin rear shocks providing compliant and finely tuned suspension. The riding position is upright and relaxed, a perfect platform from which to watch the world slide by.Clean lines elegantly echo the past. The large round headlight (raised 25mm for 2014), scalloped fuel tank and blacked out engine, front fork and wheels add style and substance, while familiar analogue dials, slim seat, side-swept 4-2-1 exhaust pipe and chromed front and rear mudguards provide the finishing touches.The most important addition is a six-speed gearbox, improving fuel economy and making for more relaxed cruising. New instrumentation includes a gear position indicator, as well as fuel computer. Revised indicators round out the updates.

    3. Key Features

    3.1 Engine

    Centrepiece of the CB1100 is its handsome DOHC engine. Air (via 2mm fins) and oil-cooled (via a 335mm 9-tier, front-mounted oil cooler), it revs to 8,500rpm and features a compression ratio of 9.5:1. Maximum power output is 66Kw @ 7,500rpm, with a peak torque figure of 93Nm @ 5,000rpm.Smooth, instantly accessible power and torque is what the motor’s all about, and plenty of it, anywhere in the rev range. No frantic thrashing to the redline; just dial in the throttle, and go. Four-stroke, four-cylinder motive thrust at its creamy, effortless best.Bore and stroke is set at 73.5mm x 67.2mm. Drive for the twin camshafts is via central chain, and the valve included angle is 26.5° inlet and exhaust. Inlet valve diameter is 27mm, with a 2.5mm stem; exhaust 24mm with 2.5mm stem. A single secondary balancer shaft ensures smooth running.Maintaining the benefits of a five-speed gearbox – carefully matched ratios giving good response and acceleration – the new sixth gear is an overdrive, reducing fuel consumption while delivering lower engine RPM at highway speeds. Final drive is by 530 chain.Alongside the efficient PGM-FI fuel injection, the new gearbox gives the CB1100 fuel consumption of 18.5km/l @ WMTC.

    3.2 Chassis

    The CB1100’s capacities, thanks to its strong engine and well-balanced chassis, are broad and multi-faceted; it’s a bike to be ridden and enjoyed in a variety of situations.A classic tubular steel double cradle frame grips the engine with four rigid and two rubber mounts; the swingarm is constructed from box-section steel. 41mm conventional telescopic forks are spring preload adjustable, as are the pair of Showa rear shocks. Painted silver, ‘Com-Star’-style cast aluminium 18-inch five-spoke wheels mount 110/80-18 and 140/70-18 single radius tyres, which offer a consistent angle of attack against the tarmac, delivering linear feel and feedback during the transition from upright to full lean.Standard ABS brakes feature twin, 296mm floating discs up front, with four-piston Nissin calipers, and 256mm disc and single-piston caliper at the rear.Overall dimensions are 2,195mm (length) x 835mm (width) x 1,130mm (height). Wheelbase is 1,490mm, ground clearance 125mm and the seat height is reasonably low at 795mm, making the CB1100 very manageable.Rake and trail is set at 27°/114mm. Kerb weight is 247kg; fuel capacity is 14.6L with a 3.5L reserve.

    Through the early stages of development of the original CB1100 the engineers spent time at the Honda Collection Hall at Motegi, examining in detail – and riding – Honda’s fours from before, key among them the CB500/Four, CB750F, CB900F and the mighty CB1100R. The look, feel and sound of these bikes provided great inspiration and a subtle change for the 2014 CB1100 – raising the headlight 25mm – has evolved the look and line of the bike, adding to its appeal.The circular analogue speedo and rev counter evoke memories of classic Hondas old, and are easy to read. Equipment includes a fuel gauge and clock, and new 2014 gear position indicator, fuel efficiency gauge and range computer. A centrestand and passenger grabrail are fitted as standard equipment.Befitting its back-to-basic aesthetic CB1100 features stealthy blacked-out detailing and will be available in a Graphite Black paint scheme.
