So what 1000+cc bikes are going for less than 10 grand brand new?

I will be fondly dreaming of FI this winter when I am yanking the carbs off of my ZG1000 one last time to change to a smaller high-altitude pilot jet since my bike runs just fine on a single turn of the fuel screws. Or maybe I'll just continue to live with high 20s-low 30s MPG.

I'd live with it. Mine, while not nearly as fine looking as the CB1100, certainly looks better without the Givi box (& tank bag), but I rarely ride without them because it is so much more convenient.





Go for it.

First one

I have two dealers close and their price is $9399 including freight and set up and all paperwork fees. Only other expense is sales tax. If I like it when I see it I'm getting the first one my dealer gets in. They think December or January.,

I think the prices Honda is asking for the CB1100 are quite reasonable. There will be some dealers offering them at a discount. If I could buy another bike in the near future, this one would be on my very short list.

Hearing April myself, which could work out for me with income tax, finagling of the ol' 401k, numerous trips to the plasma and sperm donor centers, selling of body parts on CL...

Following ...

I've been following and enjoying this thread since Ma Honda made their announcement earlier this week. In fact, all the friendly "trolls" here prompted me to join ADVrider forum.

I contacted a couple of local Honda dealers today re: the 2013 CB1100. April at the earliest and one dealer I've bought two new Hondas from offered me the 1st non ABS version for $9,999 w/ a $500 gift certificate to spend at the dealership as I please. It's a starting point.

One way or another, my stable is going to grow. Just a matter of when and how much it's gonna set me back. I'd better start being nicer to my pillion ;-)

Welcome.

I'm hoping this thread grows more and more and gets bigger than the Scrambler thread!

Better price

Talked to my dealer today and he said they'd do $9300 down from $9399. They want a deposit and don't know when they can place an order. They are waiting to hear back from the Honda Rep.

I thought the bike was going for $9,999? Is your dealer discounting the bike?

I have a 09 CBF 1000 that I think is better looking.
The oringinal 1983 CB1000F was one of the most beutifull bikes ever made...they shoulda copied it with a few modern updates such as ABS and FI.
Don't like the tank at all.

YES----They are discounting it. They won't even order one without a deposit because they say metric bikes just aren't selling. They have two new 2012 XR650L's on the floor for $6150. No paperwork, set-up or freight fees. Just sales tax which is 8.95%.

Dealers up here don't care if the bike doesn't sell. You have to "bust their balls" just to get them to waive the $198 "doc" fee.

Would love a CB1100, but not in the cards for me right now. I would be interested in a white CB500F ABS though. I wonder what your dealer would sell one for?
