The power that it makes is really rider-friendly and it is really easy to ride even on a tight track like Vegas. I’m surprised why more guys aren’t racing these bikes.”

I don't see what all the hype is over the 08+ CBR. It's also ugly. If you are riding around the street and care about torque get a speed triple. Those are just my views though.
I'll give you the oil burning issue that plague some of them, not all tho, the one at home does not burn oil at close to 14K miles. I have been on both a 929rr (with cams, full exhaust, full tune), and a 08 1000rr with a slip on. The 1000rr feels lighter, wot pulls feel just as "hard" (I mean that initial pull when you move the throttle) as the modded 929rr, and the midrange on the 1000rr is just better.

Looks of the 1000R are meh, it grows on you after a while, but yeah, meh lol Personally, I would add traction control to the 08 1000RR.

For those who don't already know about the CB1100 , its available elsewhere so reviews are already out. It makes about 87hp, redlines at 8500, weighs 545lbs, has mediocre handling, and so-so gas mileage. Also doesn't fit people over 6ft well (I'm out).
Not a bad bike at all, but that is going to depend largely on price. The part about a single 36mm throttle body threw me. Awfully mild IMO. I'm sure a little derestriction would do her some good but youll always have that 36mm throttle body unless you dump some serious money into it.

Do you mean a retro standard bike doesn't have superbike power, weight or handling!?!?

How is that possible?!


Seriously. What's next, you're going to complain that a Triumph Boneville is slower than a Daytona even though it has a 225cc advantage?

Zemke's own words:
"AMA pro racer Jake Zemke is racing for fun this weekend in Las Vegas at the WERA motorcycle club season finale."

No offense but, Zemke is a higher caliber of rider compared to the competition. Maybe if he had done that at an AMA level event might add more credit. I'm not trying to take anything away from Honda or Zemke. I can name any current or former star that could do the same... Spies, Hayes, Hayden, Edwards, Mladin, Duhamel and so forth would have yielded the same results versus the given competition.

Note the part where I said "Not a bad bike at all". Its mild but not a bad bike so long as it isn't really expensive. I would like it better though if it had 4 throttle bodies so it could be uncorked into something mean with a little work, but ohwell.

In fact, none of them look like a sportbike...


One of them must be another of their "crossovers" and the rest 4 different Shadows that are the same thing with different wheels and one might include hard luggage.
Like I said, first one looks like a sportbike looked very similar to my covered F4i which is where I was making my guess, and I'd guess I was right apparently.

That CB1100 looks great. How refreshing to see a basic motorcycle again, with clean lines, uncluttered by ugly fairings and homely exhaust.

I love it.

2013 CB1100 Specifications - Honda Powersports

According to the CB1100 spec page on Honda's website...

Quote:
Induction - PGM-FI with automatic enrichment circuit, 32mm throttle bodies
Not sure where the info on a single 36mm TB came from.

Talking

I just love the CBR600RR & CBR1000RR but they are a bit too expensive for what they offer compare to the others...

As you've probably noticed, I ride a R1 because I like its look and its sound!

But I'm a Honda man and I had many CBR's:
(2001 CBR929RR/2003 CBR954RR/2004-06 CBR1000RR/2007 CBR600RR)

If someone wants to give me a new sport bike 1000cc, I'll take it no matter the brand...

As far as the retro CB1100, if the price is right, it will sell...

I would even consider buying one or maybe the Triumph Thruxton for the same price (Canadian $$$).
