HISTORY

 If CBR1100 directly succeeds to the CBR1000F from the early 1990s, it did not mean the same vocation. Honda having until then never really tried to produce the fastest motorcycle in the world (surpassed by Kawasaki for 10 years successively with the GPZ-1000 RX 125hp and 255km/h, ZX-10 tomcat 136hp and 268km/h and ZZR- 1100 147ch and 280km/h), but the revenge arrives at the end of 1996. In fact, the CBR1100XX is simply the first production motorcycle to beat the mythical 300 km/h chrono; 303 km/h to be exact. It was presented in September 1996 in Europe.

PRODUCTION

  Here in details, product number of CBR1100.

TOTAL: 85138 units

 

STYLE

  As his flying homologue (the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird) that inspired the engineers from Honda, the Super Blackbird was studied in wind tunnel. Its aerodynamic drag coefficient is lower than a 250cm3 racing motorcycle category of the time. Almost everything in its design is dedicated to speed.

                       

 

ENGINE

  Contrary to what one might think, the XX engine is not based on CBR1000F but CBR 900RR one. This four-cylinder in-line aluminum has a displacement of 1137cm3. Compared to a CBR 1000, the cylinder walls are thinned to obtain a more compact engine width. The distribution chain is positioned sideways. For innovation, this engine has two balancers (even Harley will take the idea from 2006 for his 1600cm3) which remove vibrations generated by the engine for optimum comfort.

  We can note the presence of a fall sensor which switches off the engine when the motorcycle is found horizontally, HECS3 anti pollution system which included the recycling of exhaust gases (PAIR system) and the presence of two catalysts incorporated into the silencers.

 

CHASSIS

  The aluminum perimeter frame is a triple Diamond section type. The fork is 43 mm diameter and not adjustable. The single rear shock is adjustable by preload nut and also has a hydraulic setting.

Braking is entrusted to the Dual CBS system, already equipping number of motorcycles such as HONDA range la CBR 1000F, Pan European, Goldwing, X-11.

  Front tire dimension is 120/70/17, 180/55/17 for the rear and speed index is (W) in parenthesis (different from W max speed 270kmh compare to (W) which correspond to a superior index more than 270kmh) considering the performance of the bike.

                   

 

OTHER EQUIPEMENTS

  The XX has a center stand, 6 lashing lugs for luggage on the back. The dashboard is complete and offers analogue dials for the meter, tachometer, water temperature and fuel gauge. Clock full the panoply. The 1999 model is equipped with a burglar integrated in key coded chip (HISS). In 2002, the odometer (with two tripmeters), gasoline, temperature gauges and the clock becomes a digital display. The tachometer is now seatted on center.

PERFORMANCES

  According to various magazines, CBR1100XX is capable of reaching over 310 km/h (to the odometer) for analog versions and only 299 km/h for version with digital display. That said, the tachometer continued to climb ...
