Somewhat feels its a let down.They could of really made it something spectacular like Triumph did with classics even BMW totally went wild with T9 but Honda just made a vanilla...Not much excitement boring actually. I rather save up for this

And let's put wheels on it that have limited availability for tires. Really? 18"ers?

Glad to see it coming back even if this variant is not as pleasing (to me) as the 2014 CB1100 Deluxe.  I still think Honda should try a version that is reminiscent of the early '80's F model DOHC fours or the mid '80's Nighthawk S.

the retro classic thing is selling like hot cakes right now so not a bad move. But the real disappointment is the power numbers! 89HP and 67lb/ft out of a 1100cc version of our engine with EFI. That is pathetic in my opinion. Also it weighs 562lbs! Honda is not dumb though they will sell a lot of them for a few years and I am sure if you look at the profit margins on building a bike like this now a days, they are huge. It is all off the shelf cheap parts and engineering costs for them.

Agreed - 89HP out of a 1100cc engine is really not impressive in any capacity.  I feel like they had a chance to hit this one out of the park, and settled for a single base hit.

Wow, nice throwback to the 750 Four, with many of today's Cafe concepts added, throughout. It's funny how absolutely every style of anything, bikes, music, clothing, or otherwise, always seems to go full circle, eventually.

Local dealer had one on the showroom floor.   I think throwing a leg over it and riding it would improve my first impression which was soley based on looks.

Its possible it was just a run of the mill CB1100.  To be honest I didn't look at it all that closely, just thought it was kinda neat to see a New retro style bike on the showroom floor.

I've heard they're pretty torquey down low with redline around 8k. I'd like to ride one just to see what I might be missing, but I don't see what it has over my 700s at about 80 hp and a little lighter. No way does it handle better than the S.

Starting at $12,200.

I like it....but I like a lot of bikes in that price range.  I need more money.

But, then, that basically describes the '91-'03 Nighthawk, doesn't it?

I for one am really disappointed they didn't bring the much better looking CB1100RS that everybody else is getting. Honda will probably take the EX's failure as a cue not to bring over the RS. I fully expect a tepid response based on the looks and how it compares on paper to the Triumphs.
