New 2014 CB1100
« on: July 02, 2018, 05:42:20 pm »
Picked this up Saturday, brand new at dealership, cost 6614 out the door, traded in the ktm390 so got some of that price.  concours is just too miserable on 90 degree days with any traffic or in-town use, sorry, but ech. (unless road tripping)

its really nice, very very happy with it. Honda had a bunch of these sitting in the warehouse, and forced dealers to take them so deals can be had. New these msrpd for 10,900, new ones are 12k ish pre dealer fees/etc bs add ons and tax.

Nice find.
Seen only a few around but nice to see the retro look. ;)
I had the same type of deal back in the day.
Found a 1982 KZ1000J, in 1984 as a factory left over. Out the door for $1999. One bike I wish I still had.

Enjoy

Jeezus, 4 years old new. Did they replace all the fluids? I’m sure the tires are still good, but have fun burning them up in the next couple season, before they “expire”.

That's a great price on a cool bike.  Give us a good review on it

well, i have a 170 miles on it as of today. as far as fluids, no. original except they did give me a new full tank of fuel. I am going to flush the brake and clutch fluid though, its pretty dark. oil is fine, no worries there


tires still seem really good. this was def stored in a climate controlled warehouse. i figure i'll get a year or 2 out of the shoes.


regarding the red... when i saw one in real life the 1st time.. about 4 years ago, it was red. from the press pics i loved it. in real life, not so much.  I remember really being disappointed. I actually at the time owned a 75 CB400SS, in red, and the line on the 1100 just wasn't right by comparison. the 1st back one i saw first hand was about a year and a half ago, and it is MUCH better, to me. theres a small grey and red stripe on the top like of the tank, and there's a light sunburst red on the badge you really cant see in pics. its VERY tastefully done, and i loved it. 

I really like this thing. it rides great, has plenty of oomph, they got the fuel injection and tuning sorted well. there's plenty of go-fast parts out there, and it may get a powercommander and desnorkel on the airfilter soon enough, maybe, but not much more. i can confirm it will do 80 in second gear. lol. luckily, its also a 6 speed ( i guess 13-back they were 5 speeds?)

id def recommend it as a good solid naked standard.

all said and done, for 6600 bucks its extremely hard to beat for a new bike..

I would ride the he** out of that bike, good find! You could customize it and probably drop 80 lbs pretty easily.

Living in the days of $5000 400's, I'd say 6600 is just about stealing it!   :great: Hows about some pics of the tank details you mentioned?

this shot is kind of interesting because it shows how narrow the seat shapes down/in for shorter riders. i have a 30" inseam and have no problems.

thanks.  I think honda marketing missed an important factor in not showing the lines of the bike. in the pictures, you cant see the dimensional differences, and the offsets and contours just dont show up. I think thats why everybody went for the red ones. also, on the 'deluxe' models (the red ones) the top of the tank is taller, and the ridge is much more pronounced. when i saw one back in '14, i didnt like it nearly as much as i thought i would going by press photos. when i finally saw a black one last year in person, i was like 'damn, thats nice'.

what do i currently still own?

84 yamaha RZ350 red/white/blue rz350- stock looking, warmed over here and there.  :motonoises:
99 concours :stock
72 suzuki T500 - stock
'14 honda grom, very modified
they are all assembled, running, rideable ready to go.
