The optical retouching has done the CB 1100 EX extremely well. The slimmer mufflers come in fine. The normal CB 1100 is no longer available.

A clear case for connoisseurs

In addition, Honda increased the tank volume by 1.9 to 17.5 liters, gave the seat cover a handsome quilting and made minor optical retouching. The aluminum high-shoulder rims quoted in the press release did not end up being so, but the built-in wire-spoke wheels with conventional aluminum rims also blend in perfectly with the overall picture. The Honda CB 1100 EX looks absolutely coherent and harmonious from every angle.

The new four-in-two exhaust system mixes the somewhat shy sound with a gentle, full grumble, not bad. It’s fantastic how confidently the Honda glides along on low tours. Despite the last gear, designed as overdrive, the Honda CB 1100 EX purrs through the city in sixth gear with almost 1500 revs if necessary, and runs silky smooth. High-frequency, but not annoying vibrations are noticeable only from 3000 rpm.

Modified transmission output bearing

The gearbox, for which the gearbox output bearing was modified to make room, works crisply and precisely. But not only is the sixth gear designed as an overdrive, the fifth gear ratio is longer than the last gear in the five-speed gearbox of the first CB 1100 series. Which lowers the speed level, but also the pulling power. When overtaking maneuvers, it is best to downshift twice if you want to move ahead quickly. Especially since the Honda CB 1100 EX has gained a whopping 14 kilograms in weight compared to the base. Of their 262 kilograms, only 47.6 percent rest on the front and 52.4 percent on the rear wheel (CB 1100: 48.8 / 51.2 percent). Incidentally, a 900 Bol-d’Or produced 95 hp and 260 kilos in 1979. When the 20 liter tank is full.

Most of the extra weight will probably go to the account of the exhaust system, but the pretty spoked wheels should also play their part. The Honda CB 1100 EX (CB 1100: Bridgestone BT-54) soled with the Dunlop D 205 Sportmax Touring has not become any easier to handle. Sporty dynamism is not their primary purpose, but enjoyable gliding is even more so. At 100 km / h in the last gear, the crankshaft rotates 2800 times per minute.

After all, the Honda CB 1100 EX is even more stingy when it comes to handling fuel, consuming just 4.3 liters on the leisurely country road lap. Which increases your radius of action to almost an impressive 400 kilometers, on which there should certainly be no hectic rush. Because with the EX version you can stroll and slide even more relaxed. Even more than the CB 1100 was already, it is a clear case for connoisseurs.
