Honda Super Blackbird For Sale
The Honda Super Blackbird is a premium sports tourer bike and is powered by a 1,137cc inline four engine which puts out 164bhp. It's often called the Gentleman's Express.
What Is It?
- Build quality, reliability, comfort, very fast, smooth power delivery
- Large, heavy, budget for bar risers and a screen
The CBR1100XX launched in 1996 with a rigid mounted 1,137cc inline four engine, mounted directly to the aluminium frame. The bike 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.
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.
1998: Honda fitted a 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.
1999: The Blackbird engine, de-tuned, is used to power the CB1100 X11.
2001: Honda added a catalytic converter, new digital console and taller screen.
2002: New EFI mapping to meet emission standards and improve throttle response and low speed.
- Highly aerodynamic "bullet" nose
- Dual shaft balancer
- Dual combined braking system
Available colours: Silver, blue, black, red and black/silver.
