Live from Tokyo: This is the CB1100 we won't be getting

It's cool, it's stylish and it's not coming to the UK!

WE'RE AT the Tokyo Motor Show and arguably one of the most achingly beautiful machines on display at this year's event isn't destined for UK shores.

Honda's retro-cool CB1100 isn't earmarked for UK buyers, a company source told us at the show.

The machine's retro styling hides a multitude of modern-day technology: a hi-tech air-cooled engine, coupled with decent brakes and suspension that has shunted the 1980s-styled machine into the 21st century.

Sadly, it look as as though we won't be reliving our youth; well at least not in the company of this beauty.

How sad.

Come on Honda: get a grip!
