A modern take on a classic that’s more for enjoying the journey rather than timing it.
Classically gorgeous
Best for riding down Memory Lane

NOSTALGIA is great. You can look back on your first school/bike/love with those rose-tinted glasses and forget all about the bullying/breakdowns/cheating and so on. Why live in complicated times with the 'kids these days' when you can hark back to a simpler past? It's for this reason that retro is and always will be popular, but can the new 'retro' CB1100 shape up to the original superbike that inspired it?

The Beatles were at No.1 in the charts when Honda released the CB750 back in '69. It led the way for mainstream motorcycles, with the inline four-powered bike featuring technology such as overhead cams and a front brake disc. The large engine capacity was designed to be attractive to the US market and compete with the likes of Triumph, Harley and BMW. It certainly made a good job of that, selling hundreds of thousands and helping to end Britain's dominant motorcycle industry along the way.
