Yup. I agree. But they came damn close. If anything, the bike is a bit on the restrained side of gorgeous, which makes it a blank canvas for some people.

But, the stock bike in red, with the Endurance 4-4 pipes, is quite a looker.

It's already a beauty, but 4 pipes make it even better

The tank colored sidecovers and 4 pipes make a HUGE difference for the better. Sidecovers can be painted, but I wonder if those 4 into 4 pipes will be available.

I'd say they are, if this company will ship to America.

Sounds silly, doesn't it?

This is in Italian, but you probably should be able to translate, to English. There is a video there too, but not the one previously posted as private. tp dd50

^While watching the Italian video on Youtube, this one came up:
(It's good for those of us who can't get to the winter shows - just like being there with people walking in front of you).

Nice video here, with a couple of errors. "One" states it's more powerful, Compared to a CB1100F from 83, not true. About 20 HP down, but still more than the original 750.

"Two" states it has a large tank, for those long, long rides. A 3.9 gallon tank isn't large, compared to the 5.3 gallon on the 83.

BMW RT's almost 7 gallon tank is large. Other than those optimistic statements, it does encourage one to purchase the bike...tp

I started this thread a while back.

I think the bike should be available sometime in March. I wonder if we will see 100,000 views before the bike is on the dealership floor...

This is ADV Rider. You know it will. It has almost 850 posts, already... When 1100's start showing up on dealer's floors, is when the posts and views will really get moving. It will be fun, for sure. Thanks for starting this one... tomp dd50

I missed the part about it being more powerful,where does the video EVER compare this to an 83 1100? Hell,the performance only (roughly) matches an 82 CB900F,but vs. any 750 Honda I can see the comparison!!! Even the somewhat paltry redline of 7.5k is inline with the 750.
The tank statement calling 3.9 gal.large is a bit of a stretch,maybe 170 miles to dry(best guess)

They didn't specifically mention the 1100F, I did, as I was comparing an older 1100 that they built and sold 30 years ago, to the new 1100. They compared it to the summer of love, probably 69-71 era, which would be the 750, as you mentioned. Compared to a 44 year old 750, it is bigger and more powerful...

moto.it photo gallery

http://www.moto.it/prove/honda-cb1100-pura-essenza.html

The photo gallery has a beautiful gold 750 included. The fork gaiters look great and would be a nice add-on to the new 1100. Triumph did it for the T100 and it really looks nice.
