Beginning in the late 16th century, it became fashionable for young aristocrats to visit the major cities of Europe as the culmination of their education. Thus was born the idea of the Grand Tour, a popular pursuit that endured for the next 300 years. American notables joined this practice; in 1867, Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, set sail for Europe for a Grand Tour, and his reports of this journey later became his first best-seller, The Innocents Abroad (1869).

What better bike to name Best Standard than a re-interpretation of the one that launched a thousand container ships across the Pacific? Honda’s modern take on its original ’69 CB750 isn’t incredibly fast, terribly sporty or amazingly cutting-edge, but that’s what makes it a Standard: The new CB’s a bike you just hop on like you used to do, especially when you’ve got no particular place to go. Nostalgic it might be and a feast for some eyes, but it’s also a super-functional, easy-to-ride and cheap-to-keep motorcycle.

Some months ago MotoUSA was able to get a short first ride on the 2013 Honda CB1100, and it left us wanting more time in the saddle to really get a feel for the bike. We praised it for its throwback looks paired with modern brakes, tires and electronics, but would the nostalgia wear off?
