Honda CB 1100: Remeber

Honda CB 1100 is developed on the basis of the technical CB 1300, revised chassis side and more on the motor side.


If I had to summarize quickly, the 4-cylinder CB 1100 uses the base engine of the Honda CB 1300. this time coupled with a high air-cooled engine. But further, the engineers have put a lot of work to transform an initially water-cooled engine.

Inter alias, a pump located in the lower engine now the process of transporting the oil to the radiator and the cylinder head. A need to ensure an effective and consistent cooling, guaranteeing less pollution. In the same concern, tunnels are formed in the cylinder head in order to allow outside air to enter.

Detailing the data sheet, we also note that the technicians have taken many elements of 1300: the 5-speed transmission and the same race pistons (67.2 mm) via a crankshaft probably little changed. This is the cylinder bore, reduced by 78 mm on the 1300 to 73.5 mm, which has reduced the capacity of 1284 à 1140 cm3 exactly.

In addition to the cylinder block and its beautiful wings, bolt shares nothing with its “liquid” predecessor, can be seen particularly in the spacing of the camshafts. They have also been designed to optimize the sound of the engine, rougher in the minds of 70 lifts including the CB 750 Four. But instead of carburetors his grandmother, found in the CB1100 electronic injection, required to meet the modern anti pollution standards.

In addition to its good natural balance, the 4-cylinder uses a rotating arm, explaining the low vibration noted on board (especially on the 6-point engine mounting in the frame 2 are based on mounts). Finally, if the cooling air is still compatible with the standards of reasonable powers – so that in 1100 BC, but also the new Moto Guzzi California – it is to forget for more ambitious performance.


It is easy to imagine comparing the two bikes, the chassis of the CB 1100 draws to outline his counterpart CB 1300, while receiving numerous changes. Both bikes display the same value fork angle (27 °), but the difference is due to hunting – at least partly – the change in diameter of the front wheel. In from 17 inches on the 1300-18 inches, the CB 1100 reintroduced a size forgotten for many years.

A larger diameter provides better stability and especially comfort over bumps, especially as the two 18-inch wheels are associated with himself long wheelbase (1490 mm). Similarly, the limited width of the tires (110 front and 140 rear) offers a real plus in terms of agility, in the spirit of motorcycles from the 70/80. In addition, the cast aluminum wheels allow of tires tubeless rims unlike conventional radiation – except the high-end models, so expensive.

For the rest, based on the 1100 CB suspensions could not be more conventional: two rear shocks and a solid fork diam. 41 mm, all only adjustable preload (spring). But braking joined the best standards of the time, or the famous coupling of front / rear discs with ABS anti-lock system.

Mounted again on the 1100 CB, it works beautifully, transparent, powerful and secure.

In the spirit of old bikes, and of course to reduce the price, CB 1100 uses a small device. Its board electronic board uses two needle instruments – speed and tachometer – surrounding a liquid crystal window for the two partial trips, the total mileage, fuel level and the clock. Note the motorcycle is equipped with an ignition key transponder HISS type preventing start up “wild” Under the saddle, there is a small compartment next to the fuse box – as the CB 750 Four of time! – And a location for a U-lock Four securing hooks are positioned on each side of the passenger seat, other anchor points being provided at the footrest plates.

The bike comes as standard with two crutches, side and center. Manufacturing quality of the Honda CB 1100 mixes the best – quality paintings, the care given to the arrangement of the dressing, steel fenders Chrome – a less good, especially the big plastic cover sprocket gearbox and rear or flashing lights. Catalog of accessories for the poor time offering only or tinted chrome bezels for counters, the lighthouse, the fork tube plugs … and a luggage rack in chromed steel tubes.

But we expect that the props are already on the floor issue.
