<p>At the time of its release in the States, the CB1100F carried a price tag of only $3,698, which, when compared to the features, power and all around performance of the machine was deemed a great bargain by pundits of the day. The fact that it outperformed nearly every other liter machine in its class was only icing on the cake. <br />
<br />Honda continued to build motorcycles fitted with inline four engines, but the Honda CB1100F overshadowed all but a few in the years to follow. Each subsequent model borrowed something from those that came before, allowing Honda to constantly improve their product line without being forced to begin with a blank slate. <br />
<br />The CB1100F made an indelible impression on its riders. Thanks to its performance and “one-year superstar” status, it has become a prized collectible today. The bike attracts an enthusiastic following and many proud owners have posted a variety of videos on YouTube. Here’s a sampling:</p>
