honda CB1100 EX

The dream lives on

Makes the good times roll, again and again.

The Honda CBR1100EX is a modern, air-cooled, four-cylinder machine with a crisp exhaust note. Attractive details, like the slim brushed aluminium side panels and spoked wheels, the look is straight out of the 1970’s. With a revamped engine, slipper clutch, Showa forks and shocks – showing lots of lovely chrome ­– it not only looks like a dream, it handles like one too.

A smooth ride

New front and rear suspension units by Showa.

Front fork

The CB1100EX has a redesigned, custom-style 41mm 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.
Rear Shocks

Twin Showa rear shocks, with lots of lovely chrome, 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.

A time honoured

The past can catch up with anyone.

In the beginning

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 in time that changed our perception of motorcycles and the way we rode them. The CB1100EX is a direct descendant – a genuine, modern classic and, just like the CB750, it’s here to stay.
The original look

Aluminium engine covers contrast the overall black finish and the chromed-cam end caps, mounted on the bright silver cylinder head, complete the look. Four down pipes are double skinned to prevent heat discolouration and feed two mufflers, which are positioned for better ground clearance.
