Honda has revised its retro-classic CB1100 and given it the ‘EX’ treatment. It’s now got twin exhausts and wire wheels, giving it a much more authentic ‘60s and ‘70s feel. It’s not without modern touches, though, as its new six-speed gearbox, higher headlight position and improved instrumentation attests.

Type Inline four-cylinder
Air and oil cooled DOHC
Displacement 1,140cc
Bore & Stroke 73.5 x 67.2mm
Compression Ratio 9.5:1
This one from Honda is an eye catcher too earlier this month they had displays up in Rochestor and I couldn't stop staring at it. The only thin that bothers me is the fake oil sump cover on the sides. First i was surprised to see it but then when I gave her a knock voila hollow and cheap plainted plastic. I was hoping to see it in red too but nada.

What do you guys think of the CB1100ex?

I wonder how many of these they sell.... Doesnt seem like many would buy something retro brand new in 2014. Must be a small market.
I don't know retros hot right now. Just take one look at BMW's NineT for all the info you need. That thing is sold out through September I believe. People want retro style with modern amenities and performance. Consider who the target market is, 40-60, plenty of disposable income and an inkling of the glory days....

Good point, I've heard a lot about the ninet from my dealer saying how crazy that bike is as well as the demand.
