What do you think about the new Honda CB1100
 
Went to the dealer to take a look at it but they won't have one until late February or early March. So what are your opinions on it? It seems that the younger crowd doesn't appreciate it as much as I do. Not that I'm old, I'm in my mid 20's. The salesman at the dealer didn't even know they were gonna have it. Had to talk to the owner about it. He appreciated the bike as much as I do. In fact he was surprised that someone as young as me wanted one. So how many of you guys like the bike?

I think they are rockin! I would have bought one back when I bought my 2011 CB1000r I had. Great alternative to the Triumph Thruxton, nothing else really has that "throwback" styling now a days. Oh, and I'm only 25:D

the 70's called, they want their bike back :D

I like it

I like the retro styling. I'm a Honda fan, so I may be showing favoritism.

Sweet! I am looking forward to reading some reviews from the motoscribes at Cycle World, Rider, etc.

Looks like my '78 Suzuki! I love it.

I'm all over that! I want one. But I'm stick with my 86

Awesome. That's right from my generation. Loved them back then and love it now. I had a Suzuki GS1000 and my cousin had the Honda CB back in the 80s (before most of you all were born :p)

Grew up with this. So the nostalgia is there. I feel like selling my 600rr for it.

I had a '74 CB360 and currently have a '75 CB200T. Glad they're going back to good looking bikes :D

Just wish they would do something smaller than an 1100....

They have a new lineup of 500's and the 250. But not the retro look.

I lean towards sport bikes like my zx6r, but that bike looks great. If I had the money to blow, I'd get it for everyday commuting.

My first bike was a '74 360, absolutly loved it!

Awesome bike! I had a CB900c years ago. Rode it 2100 miles from Florida to New Mexico. That was great - this looks like the same pedigree! I'm in love!
