  • Build quality, reliability, comfort, very fast, smooth power delivery
  • Large, heavy, budget for bar risers and a screen

What Is It?

It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,137cc inline four engine, producing 164bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 7,250rpm. It has dual balancer shafts and is mounted directly to the Aluminium frame.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 310mm discs up front with 3 piston calipers
  • 256mm disc at the rear with 3 piston caliper
  • Combined braking system
  • 43mm fork with adjustable pre-load
  • Adjustable rear shock
  • 6 speed gearbox

The model is often praised for build quality, finish and riding comfort. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.

It held the record for fastest production bike until it was toppled in 1999 by the GSX1300R Hayabusa, shortly before the gentleman's agreement between the main players to limit top speeds to 186mph in 2000. 

Honda initially developed the bike to win the title from Kawasaki's Ninja ZX-11 but in the process ended up developing a surprisingly usable machine.

Colours: Silver, blue, black, red, black/silver

1998: New cooling system and thermostat housing.

1999: Major re-design including fuel injection, larger fuel tank, HISS, tail light, ram air system, clutch and oil cooler. Watch out for the wiring fault on injected bikes. A de-tuned version of the engine is used to power the CB1100 X11.

2001: Catalytic converter, new digital dash and taller screen.

2002: New EFI mapping to meet emission standards and improved throttle response at low speed.

Did You Know?

The CBR1100XX Super Blackbird is named after the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the US stealth reconnaissance plane first flown in 1964 and previous holder of the fastest plane in the world title.
