2017 Honda CB1100 EX

/
Improving On A Classic Idea.

You want proof that a great idea never goes out of style? Then just check out the new 2017 Honda CB1100 EX. Externally, it’s pure Honda classic: that red steel tank, the air-cooled transverse-four engine, the brushed aluminum sidecovers, the round headlight, the chromed fenders, the comfortable, upright seating and tubular-steel handlebar. But twist the throttle, and you’ll see there’s nothing retro about the CB1100 EX’s performance. Displacing a full 1140cc, the six-speed overdrive gearbox and electronic fuel injection deliver performance no 1970’s classic ever could.

But check out some of the details we’ve given this new machine: 18-inch wire wheels front and rear, laced with stainless-steel spokes. That fuel tank we talked about? There’s no bottom seam, so it has a super-clean, hand-built look. The headlight is a powerful LED unit, and there’s a new slipper-type clutch underneath that right engine cover.

Perfect for just about anything you’ll ask a bike to do, the CB1100 EX takes a great idea and improves on it—Honda style.
