I just got back from the DC show and stared/sat over the CB several times. I want one! The paint, fit, finish and overall package is unreal, on par with any $20,0000 BMW/Harley/Ducati. It was easily one of the bikes gathering the most attention and chatter.
***FYI: Several Honda employees did mention that the difference between the new 500cc Hondas with and without ABS is only $500 and that nobody should be surprised (wink, wink) if the CB1100 with ABS is reduced to $10,499.... still just a rumor.
