CB1100RS

Along­side the updated EX model, this year Honda un­veiled the sporti­est ver­sion of their CB1100 retro – the RS. Tak­ing the EX as a base, the RS adds chunky con­ven­tional forks, ra­dial brakes, 17in wheels and slight changes to the chas­sis’ ge­om­e­try to up its per­for­mance. While the air­cooled in­line four is pleas­ingly old­school in its feel and sound, with the RS Honda have played it too safe and the han­dling isn’t as ag­ile as you hope while the bike is also no light­weight. Over­all, a bit of a let-down.
