Honda CB1100 EX

Motorcycle News (UK) - - New Bikes Special -

88.5bhp | 255kg | Seat height 790mm

The EX gets a raft of mi­nor up­dates Front and rear lights are now LED and the new 18in wheels run stain­less steel spokes, and roll un­der a new 41mm Showa Dual Bend­ing Valve fork and matched dual Showa rear shocks. The en­gine gets the same im­prove­ments as the RS, with re­vised in­lets and smaller, lighter dual muf­flers – and the as­sist slip­per clutch. The ge­om­e­try is slightly more re­laxed than the RS, the seat is a mar­ginal 5mm lower at 790mm, and the weight has in­creased three ki­los to 255kg.

189bhp | 196kg | Seat height 832mm

CF Moto’s new 650MT is aimed squarely at the tour­ing mar­ket. Built around a new tubu­lar steel frame and swingarm, the MT has a wa­ter­cooled 650cc par­al­lel-twin – which is Euro 4 com­pli­ant and claimed to push out a peak of 71bhp at 8750rpm. The seat height is ad­justable be­tween 820mm and 840mm and the front and rear sus­pen­sion are fully ad­justable. And it comes at a very com­pet­i­tive price.
