2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show: Honda Unveils 2017 CB 1100EX

Written By:

Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Honda has unveiled the 2017 CB 1100EX at the 2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show in Cologne, Germany.

The new Honda 1100EX look is a homage to the bikes of the 1970s. The round headlamp and twin dials and the new fuel tank with no visible welds are reminiscent of the Honda models of the past.

A touch of modernity is added by the front and rear LED lights, which are a real contrast to the spoked 18-inch stainless steel wheels.

The new 1100EX is available in three colors: Shining Pearl Yellow, Pearl Sunbeam White, and Candy Prominence Red.

The tubular steel double cradle frame supports the engine with the help of four rigid supports and two rubber mounts.

The engine in question is a 4-cylinder 1,140 cc engine with double overhead camshafts (DOHC) that pushes out 88.7bhp @ 7,500rpm and 91Nm @ 5,500rpm.

The engine sends its power and torque to the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox.

The CB1100EX has 1490 mm long wheelbase and the seat height of the retro motorcycle is 792 mm while the weight of the bike with a full tank of gas is 255 kg.

Up front the CB1100EX with 41mm Showa forks whose internal valves generate the damping force during compression and rebound.

At the rear there are dual Showa shock absorbers with adjustable spring preload which are fixed to a steel swingarm.

Braking duties are handled by dual 296mm floating discs are paired with four-piston Nissin calipers while at the rear the single 256mm disc with single piston caliper brings the scrambler to a stop. Dual channel ABS is standard.
