AN EYE FOR DETAIL
The shape of a raw 1970s race bike, with a touch of café racer. The CB1100 RS will attract attention from the moment you fire it up. A crisp exhaust note through chrome pipes – reminiscent of the CB750 – will not go unnoticed. This bike has an edge to it, the look is pure street with eye-catching front and rear suspension units, full floating discs, a sport striped fuel tank and slim-styled indicators – stunning.
THE GOLD STANDARD
Fully adjustable front and rear suspension by Showa.
The CB1100 RS has a redesigned, custom-style 43mm Dual Bending Valve type fork that provides excellent control. Incorporating a free valve structure that progressively increases the amount of damping according to the road conditions. This simple, innovative technology – a world first –delivers superior performance levels that are equivalent to cartridge type suspension units, but in a lighter package
Twin Showa rear shocks offer adjustable spring preload and operate in unison with a strong steel swingarm. This combination delivers good stability and excellent rear-wheel-feel and handling – even with a passenger on board.
If you want to hear a sound from the 70s - open the throttle.
Time to remember
In 1969 the sound of an inline, air-cooled four-cylinder engine proclaimed the arrival of a new superbike era; enter the Honda CB750 Four. It was an influential moment that changed our perception of motorcycles and the way we rode them. The CB1100 RS is a direct link to those early days of freedom - a genuine café racer, born of classic DNA.
Time to change
We’ve refined and revamped the DOHC engine to respond with smooth linear drive; torque peaks at 91Nm for some classic muscle. Finished in black, right up to the cam covers, it provides a strong contrast to the bright polished alloy and chrome details for a real street, custom look.
