The CB1100F returns!

By now you’ve probably seen photos of the prototypes Honda debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show in late 2007.

If not, check them out here 

Two were of interest to retro fanatics like us: the CB1100F (seen here at Honda’s stand at the show), a modern air-cooled standard that looks like a newer, bigger, meaner version of a 1975 Honda CB400F, and the CB1100R, an endurance-racer-inspired ride that’s got us chomping at the bit for a production model already.

The original '83 CB1100F was beautiful, as were it's F-line predecessors from the '79 CB750F onward. This thing is BUTT-UGLY and an embarrassment. What were they thinking? I've had my '83 11F for over half my life. NO WAY would I even consider buying this monstrosity. Dragging good names through the mud seems to be a modern-times corporate philosophy; look what Chrysler did to the Charger; Pontiac did it to the GTO, Chevrolet did it to the (w)Impala and Malibu, and now Honda is on-board. Hateful.

I am so ready for this bike I for sure hope we see it soon here in the US. I will put my deposit down now and wait impatiently for this great motorcycle to arrive. However, I would surely think that it would be less than $10,000.00. The technology of old can't cost much as they already have it and have already used it in the 70's and 80's. The rear shocks are nothing out of the ordinary as well as with the front sliders. Brakes of course will be typical Honda which is a very good thing. I would hope that pricing is realistic at around $7899.00, that would be more in the ballpark for a ride like this one. If not I will pay up to $8895.00 and that is it or I will go ahead and choose another machine with updated technology. The reason Honda should bring back these type of bikes should be to make them more affordable for the average wage earner. Of course, I can only give my opinion on the matter and I doubt Honda will ever see it. I just hope they keep things on the up and up on the price, then I'm a buyer for sure.
