This is the maintenance schedule and associated service intervals for the Honda CB1100, made from 2010 to today, although not in all markets at all times.
The Honda CB1100 is a throwback machine, built in the style of the Universal Japanese Motorcycles (UJMs) of the mid 190s. It’s a simple machine — air-cooled, four-cylinders, but with fuel injection and a modern dash.
It has undergone a couple of revisions since launch. In 2014, it got a sixth gear and new gauge cluster, and in 2017 it got LED lights, a lighter exhaust, a seamless fuel tank made of pressed aluminum (which looks great in the flesh), and a slipper clutch.
The CB1100 came in a few variants
- CB1100F: Base model. Cast 18-inch wheels, twin 296mm discs with 4-piston Nissin callipers, 41mm basic telescopic form, 5-speed transmission.
- CB1100 DLX (2014+): US-only. ABS, larger fuel tank, and four-into-two exhaust, stitched seat, and improved dash. Same wheels as original.
- CB1100 EX (2014+): Spoke wheels
- CB1100 RS (2017+). 17-inch aluminium wheels, shorter wheelbase, Tokico radial calipers, and better suspension (visible from gold fork bottoms and yellow rear springs)

About the Honda CB1100
The modern Honda CB1100 keeps all of the advantages of its ancestor, but is equipped with a stronger 1140 cc fuel injected engine and many other modern features which make it cope perfectly with today’s standards.
The motorcycle is built on a strong twin-loop full-cradle steel chassis with a modern geometry, which is perfectly suited for the requirements of this class. In terms of style, the Honda CB1100 keeps the same classic lines as its predecessor.
Smooth, powerful, compact, and free-revving, Honda’s inline fours set the standard in the class. The CB1100’s engine displaces 1140cc and features air cooling for a timeless look. With an engine this size, you get power everywhere.
The polished aluminum accents on the CB1100 is an example of the quality, design, and detail that make the CB1100 a uniquely premium motorcycle. The engine is combined with an advanced PGM-FI Fuel Injection.
Improved cold-weather startups, no-drama high-altitude riding, and no choke are just three benefits of fuel injection. The CB1100’s four-into-one pipe gives this bike a crisp sound, and the chrome finish is a great highlight.
