2014 CB1100 ?
Does anybody honestly believe that there is NOT going to be a 2014 year model CB1100 ?

I don't know, after quickly selling his first 3, my dealer has had a new one sitting on the floor for weeks. The crazies are done with their feeding frenzy ? (but not the farkling !) Wonder how it's going across the U.S...

I picked up my bike yesterday at the dealer (was in for scheduled service) and there was a non-ABS on the showroom floor, has been there for weeks. I'm hoping that it sells so the dealer and Hands can make some money and give us a 2014 model.

My local dealer dropped his list price to $9,299 and I've seen a CB1100 on the floor the 4 or 5 times I've been there the past 2 months. Furious_blue may be on to something.

How does everyone feel about a 1 year run in the US? I was hoping the CB1100 would be around for many years with hopes that accessories would become more plentiful in the US. Thanks to the folks on this site, the accessories issue seems to be "solved", at least for the near future.

Id love it if it were a one year model here. Would make mine rare like the 83 CB 1100f.

I was initially hoping that the US CB1100 would turn out to be a big sales hit for Honda and it would enjoy a two or three year run, for a few reasons but primarily: first the more CB1100s sold, the more aftermarket parts will be available and the longer Honda will support OEM parts for the bike, and second the bigger the owners group, the better chance it remains vibrant and group rides etc will continue in the future.

Ferret's example of the 83 CB1100F is a good one: the 83 CB1100F shared (not exactly, but substantially) a wildly successful motorcycle platform which included the 80s CB750F, the 80s CB900F, and many of the non-cosmetic and non-final drivetrain parts of the very popular 80s 900 custom as well, and as a result of having all these similar bikes on the road it is relatively easy even thirty years later to keep the 83 CB1100F in running condition, but as Ferret mentions, it was only sold in the US for one year -- the perfect combination of 'rare' and 'everywhere'! I really like the 83 CB1100F as well: I just bought a 83 CB1100F from a guy in New Mexico and I'm having it shipped to the east coast, due to arrive the first week of August (when it arrives I'll add it to my sig line).

I hope they bring her back for at least one more year. I like having a bike that is different and unique, but as I found out with my 2008 Suzuki B-King, a single year run means very little aftermarket support. Unfortunately, Full fairing sport bikes and V twin cruisers seem to be the sales leaders here in the USA, and bikes like the CB 1100 usually fall prey to simple economics. We'll just have to wait and see....

I am afraid, as some of you have suggested, that those who are hot for these bike have bought theirs already. It could be that once all the retro Honda guys get one, the sales will drop to zip. Surely some of the dealers know how the bikes are selling nation wide. I'm going to prod my dealer for info.

RE: 2014 CB1100 ?
Gentlemen,

The CB1100 is, by today's standards, a pretty expensive bike and it's made in Japan which means it's expensive to build. Honda is having great success with utilitarian smaller bikes like the CBR250R and it's dual sport cousin built in low wage countries like Thailand and India. In today's Great Depression the top end of the market and the bottom end tend to do the best. The CB1100 is in the middle and in a good economy I think it would sell well for years. Today it's tough to say. I hope this bike has a multi year run and I don't care about exclusivity. I can find and buy all kinds of cool stuff for my Mustangs because they are popular. The aftermarket is non existent for the American Motors AMX even though it's a cool car.
