Honda CB1100R Concept, 2009
The prestige sports CB concept for hardcore riders seeking the true CB spirit.
Taking over thr traditional air-cooled, 4-stroke in-line, DOHC, 4-cylinder engine, the same engine as in the CB1100F, and the CB brands, this stunning model CB1100R offers additional taste of racing heritage, an attraction unique to honda. While the sporty styling - with it's compact fairing and single seat - evokes Honda's legendary RCB racers, the modern design offers up an attractive freshness, stimulating a longing for those fabled machines and giving a satisfying sense of ownership. The air-cooled, 1,140cc, inline, 4 cylinder engine generates powerful torque in the low - and mid-rpm ranges, and the lightweight, compact chassis makes this motorcycle really fun to ride. The prestige Sports CD Concept CB1100R was specially designed for mature riders who feel the pride of owning a Honda and the true CB spirit.
A FUSION OF MODERNITY AND TRADITION IN A NOBLE DESIGN
The styling of the CB1100R expresses the aura of Honda's racing heritage and has a lofty prescence. Every part of this evocative machine expresses it's high build quality and attention to detail. From the beautiful lines of the aluminium fuel tank and twin-shock rear suspension, to the modern feel of the instruments, mass-centralized design and the traditional air-cooled, in-line 4-cylinder engine, the bold figure of the CB1100R has the same compact and modern form as the CB1100F which shares its frame and engine. The "R" designates this model's special and noble esign. The eye-catching dual round headlights fuse the latest technologies, with one a reflector type and the other a projection beam. The paint scheme expresses Honda's traditional tricolour racing colours of red, blue and white, giving the motorcycle a sporty and elegant image. The engine is finished in black, the exhaust in black chrome, and the frame in brilliant red, a colour scheme which gives the machine a sporty, tense look.
