Default Re: Honda New 1100 CB

Hard to say anything, only HMSI knows what its going to do. But given that the CB1100 is a niche bike, and if the sales aren't that big for Honda worldwide, there's a good chance it will eventually land here.

Well, the updated 2017 model year CB 1100 has been announced for Japan, Europe and USA.

Japan :

UK :

USA :

It would be REALLY interesting if Honda India decide to tap into the buyer base interested in retro Universal Japanese Motorcycles (UJMs).

Very evidently, there's a large buyer base for classic looking retro-style bikes in the form of cruisers and standard bikes from H-D, Indian and Triumph.

Honda India has to figure out a way of convincing this pool of enthusiasts to be drawn to these '70s / '80s style beauties.

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift

P.S. I'm already dreaming of fitting a set of these to the bike ... to liberate the engine's song

I agree it's a great bike to be available in India, but there is something about this bike you need to know which might explain why it's not here.

The CB needs a ridiculously low interval (4000 mi, approximately I think) valve adjustment.

With the service facilities available in India, I doubt seeing it soon on our shores.

Disappointing, I know.

Cheers

Ride Safe.

Hi Guys,
Thanks to all of you. I did send an email to Honda India and surprisingly I got a call back almost instantly......unfortunately could not take the call. Hope they call back.
4000 mi for Tappet check !! Wow ... agree that's a big issue.
From what I am reading the bike seems to be quite a hit in the USA though.
Keeping fingers crossed.
Regards,
Seacat

All the online forums say 8000 miles (13,000km) for a valve clearance check. Also, most people report that the inspection reveals no need for adjustment at 8000 miles.

Have a look at the Owner's Manual here

... see page 39 of the manual.
