CB1100 EX

PERFORMANCE

1140cc AIR-COOLED ENGINE

With an engine this size, you get power everywhere—enough to go on a spirited street ride, an hour-long cruise or carry a passenger with ease.

TECHNOLOGY

FOUR-INTO-TWO EXHAUST

The CB1100 EX’s four-into-two exhaust pipe gives this bike a classic look along with a crisp sound, and the chrome finish is a great highlight, too.

HANDLING

TRIPLE DISC BRAKES

Nothing retro here: the CB1100 EX’s huge twin front discs and single rear disc are drilled for lighter weight and less heat retention, and offer smooth, predictable, powerful stopping capability. Naturally, the system features ABS as standard equipment.

BLACKED-OUT ENGINE WITH ALUMINUM HEADLIGHTS

Subtly blacked-out, the engine wears natural aluminum engine covers, and features a cylinder head finished in silver with a burnished aluminum cam cover and chrome end caps.

PROGRAMMED FUEL INJECTION (PGM-FI)

Improved cold-weather startups, no-drama high-altitude riding and no choke are just three benefits of PGM-FI.

DESIGN

LARGE SEAMLESS FUEL TANK

The CB1100 EX features a fuel tank with 4.4 gallons of capacity. That, plus the bike’s excellent fuel efficiency, give you plenty of range.

WIRE SPOKED WHEELS

Classic spoked wheels look great, but the CB1100 EX rolls on hoops with 40 stainless-steel spokes per wheel and aluminum hubs. Light and strong, they perform as good as they look.

STEEL CHASSIS

An air-cooled inline four engine in a classic like the CB1100 EX just has to bolt up in a twin-loop full-cradle steel chassis. The twin shock mounts complete the look. But this isn't some retro frame: Honda's chassis engineers have graced it with modern materials and construction techniques. The result is a bike that both looks great and handles like a modern bike should.

HANDLING

41mm FRONT FORK

The CB1100 EX is equipped with a Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) 41mm front fork, which uses two valves to generate both compression and rebound damping force for a linear suspension feel and excellent control.

STEEL SWINGARM

Combined with the CB1100 EX’s steel-tube full-cradle twin-loop frame, the stout steel swingarm is part of the bike’s excellent handling package.

TWIN-SHOCK REAR SUSPENSION

Easy to adjust and equipped with preload adjustability, the CB1100 EX’s new Showa suspension offers improved compliance and proves that the traditional design, done right, can provide excellent handling characteristics.

TWO-CHANNEL ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM

Honda’s ABS system, standard on the CB1100 EX model, provides additional confidence when stopping in less-than ideal conditions.

STYLE

TIMELESS INSTRUMENTATION

New digital instruments tuck into classic round chromed instrument housings—the best for both worlds. You get proper looks and all the electronic functions you expect from a modern bike.

COMFORT

COMFORTABLE RIDING POSITION

Honda’s classic inline-fours were very comfortable, and it’s the same for the new CB1100 EX. Ride it for 10 minutes or two hours and you’ll see that it’s one of the easiest-to-live-with machines in any class.
