Hey @Ghostrider.1127 , I was just tripping on some stuff I took for my sinus. Sorry, no ill feelings dude, if you took any offence to it. I did know it was a conceptional sketch ( aka render, picture, illustration blah blahh ) of the bike & was conceptionally thinking of the headlight brightness & distance as the current reflectors suck.

I personally never liked the older CBs... Sorry, I just thought they were ugly. I like the retro style much more, all models pre2018 just weren't my thing. I highly doubt Honda would ditch the effort that went into the NSC to go back to the prior gen style, they wouldn't have redesigned the bike if it was selling really well

;)

Cool render tho i guess, I don't hate street fighters!
I totally agree with you. Back then the CB1100 was much better looking. I still like them today too, but they are not sold in Canada.

CB1100 and the CB1000R are not comparable bikes, IMO.

The CB1000R Competes with the Z900 (and RS), the Yamaha CP3 series, maybe the Suzuki GSXS, Speed twin, etc. All modern motorcycles, some wearing mildly "retro" clothes.


The CB1100 has two thirds to half the power and a hundred pounds over any of those motos. It's better looking, but its closer to an ACTUAL retro motorcycle than any of the retro sport nakeds.

It competes with the Enfield 650 twins, the W800, The Bonnie T120, Sportsters, etc.

And that's why I like having different bikes to ride and enjoy! Along with my CB1100 are my '15 VFR 800 and my '21 CB1000R. Similar in ways, but each has its own nature.

Part of my 'moniker' 3rdbike is about when I was finally able to have THREE bikes in the garage all at once! 1999, I think it was.
