The look of an early superbike


Made for those who love the look and feel of a classic air-cooled, inline four-cylinder street machine – this is a real rider’s motorcycle.

At a glance:

Styled on the 1970’s superbikes: 43mm Showa Dual Bending Valve, two-piece front fork and remote reservoir rear shocks. 17-inch cast aluminium wheels with dual radial-mount, four-piston brake calipers and floating discs.

Colours: Candy Prominence Red, Graphite Black


Price: TBC


Dual dials

The speedo and rev counter design is truly retro and adorned in chrome. Rider information includes a fuel gauge and clock, gear position indicator, fuel efficiency gauge and range computer. Ignition is now via a ‘wave’ style key.

Light Wheels

Front and rear wheels are sports 17” cast aluminium alloy with sports-spec tyre sizes. They keep the unsprung weight as low as possible to compliment the quick turning geometry of the chassis.

Face front

The round front headlight is LED with a running light and flanked by custom-style, mini indicators. Unmistakably street – underlined by twin horns – this handsome cluster crowns the front of the machine.

Focused on feedback

The classic tubular steel, double cradle frame holds the engine with four rigid and two rubber mounts. Sharper steering geometry – the rake and trail is 26°/99mm and wheelbase is 1485mm – makes the bike turn quicker for a sportier ride.

Comfort and quality

A wide classic seat, made just the way they used to be. Finished in a high quality, durable cover it’s well padded and extremely comfortable for the rider and the passenger.

A cleaner line

The footrest hangers have been redesigned for a snug fit, complimenting the lines of the chassis and mufflers. Lighter and smaller, made from strong die-cast aluminium, they support both rider and pillion footpegs.

Feeling the force

Dual radial mount, four-piston Tokico calipers grip the 310mm floating discs up front; the rear is a 256mm disc and single-piston caliper. Working together with ABS, you get a positive and confident feel under all stopping conditions.

The stripes are earned

There’s no mistaking the proportion and silhouette of a true 1970’s superbike. A flowing, curvaceous fuel tank with a sports stripe detail – made without seam-welded lips – evokes hand-made craftsmanship and topped with an aircraft-style, alloy filler cap.

The Gold Standard

Fully adjustable front and rear suspension by Showa.

Front fork

The CB1100 RS has a redesigned, custom-style 43mm Dual Bending Valve type fork that provides excellent control. Incorporating a free valve structure that progressively increases the amount of damping according to the road conditions. This simple, innovative technology – a world first –delivers superior performance levels that are equivalent to cartridge type suspension units, but in a lighter package

Rear Shocks

Twin Showa rear shocks offer adjustable spring preload and operate in unison with a strong steel swingarm. This combination delivers good stability and excellent rear-wheel-feel and handling – even with a passenger on board.

Authentic Lineage

If you want to hear a sound from the 70s – open the throttle.

Time to remember: In 1969 the sound of an inline, air-cooled four-cylinder engine proclaimed the arrival of a new superbike era; enter the Honda CB750 Four. It was an influential moment that changed our perception of motorcycles and the way we rode them. The CB1100 RS is a direct link to those early days of freedom – a genuine café racer, born of classic DNA.

Time to change: We’ve refined and revamped the DOHC engine to respond with smooth linear drive; torque peaks at 91Nm for some classic muscle. Finished in black, right up to the cam covers, it provides a strong contrast to the bright polished alloy and chrome details for a real street, custom look.
