The technical equipment of the Honda CB 1100 EX is - well - very clear. Apart from the ABS required by law, there are no technical aids, including traction control. Of course, this also fits in with the retro claim of the machine, many buttons or complicated functions would be totally out of place here. The light is also classic: H4 bulbs at the front, fat and of course orange turn signals with incandescent bulbs and above all two (!) Honking at the front under the circular headlight - that's how it should be. Of course, there is no indicator reset, where do you think?!
What does exist, however, is a beautiful cockpit with two analogue instruments, whose dials are kept in the same petrol blue as they were on the 750 Four. And then the white hands with the red ends - simply heavenly! The fact that you often honk unintentionally when flashing due to the awkwardly attached button - for free. In general, you can forgive this bike for all points of criticism anyway, but there are hardly any of them. Between the analogue clocks there is an inverted LCD display with gear indicator, fuel level and various on-board computer information such as remaining range. This is very reminiscent of the Kawasaki Z900 RS and is similarly well done.
