That looks better to me than what they are actually producing. Funny that early Triumph Bonnevilles had the small distinctive tank, but were replaced with the larger hump looking ones to fit the fuel pump and more fuel for the larger engine. Honda replaced the 750's large capacity hump shaped tank of old for a new small tank and had to add a fuel pump in there, too. Think Triumph made the better decision in tank design. tp dd50

I went and sat on a Bonnie a few minutes later. There was no comparison in the fit and finish dept. the Honda looks like its worth every penny more than the Triumph costs.

How is this thing going to be for taller riders? I'm almost 6'4, fit great on my 1970 CB750 I recently sold and am wondering how the new one will be.

Go to Hnda and select the CB750, 69---, and add the CB1100, 2010, and set your body dimensions. Afraid you may be disappointed in the new bike's leg angle ergos....

A few interesting customs.
The Honda CB500X surprised me,
The EBR looked beautiful, and the Crocker continuation bike looked great too.
The Triumph XC800 fit me best, though I'd buy a Diavel too if i had the $ for lots of new bikes.

How did the 500x surprise you? Thanks for your input.

I initially mistook it for the NC700X, it's the same size. I'm not normally attracted to "tiddlers" but this seemed like a bike I could own.

For the last 15 years, I have spent 18k to 24k for my bikes. I have determined that I am not rich and I want to find something under 10k that I could enjoy. This is the first time I have given Hondas a strong look since the 70's. I'm used to fast powerful bikes, but hope to find the joy in more "sensible?" bikes. I still have to get up and down the interstates a little bit.

Got any others shots with the quad pipes?

This bike never appealed much to me until I saw this pic.
The quad pipes tie it back to my old 74 nicely.
I would like to see more.

I've owned and ridden plenty of power monsters, and I've also lived happily on a Pacific Coast, which is powered similarly to honda's new 500 and 700 twins, so the CB1100 should really have plenty of juice I think.

The bike just looks so good; from the cam covers, to the footpeg brackets,and the smooth tank and beautiful paint you want to run your hands all over it.
