What Is It?

The Honda Super Blackbird is a premium sports touring bike and is often called the Gentleman's Express. It's powered by a liquid cooled 1,137cc inline four engine, producing 164bhp at 10,000rpm and maximum torque at 7,250rpm. The engine has dual balancer shafts and is mounted directly to the 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. 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. 

The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.

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

1998: New cooling system and thermostat housing.

1999: Major re-design with fuel injection, larger fuel tank, HISS, tail light, ram air system, clutch, oil cooler and new combined brakes. 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.
