ST1100 sport-tourer, left, versus larger GL1800 touring bike, right.

The Honda ST1100 was sold as the Pan-European outside of North America. It was produced from 1991 to 2002. The ST in the name stands for sport touring and 1100 is the engine displacement in cc's (1084 precisely).

History

ST1100 production began in 1990 and ended in 2002, although the police variant, the ST1100P, is still available. A revamped model, the Honda ST1300 (also called the Pan-European) became available in the US in 2003. The ST1100 was conceived, designed and developed by Honda Germany as a continental sport cruiser. Later models have a huge 7.4-gallon gas tank that sits between your ankles, to offer better handling due to a low center of gravity. It gets up to 54 MPG. The ST1100 is a much better designed and more comfortable long-distance bike than the Japanese-designed ST1300 or any of the newer BMWs that need a rear Paralever to do what the ST does without one. (I have owned all types of BMW's over the last 40 years.) A key problem with the ST1300 is that it throws off large amounts of engine, exhaust, manifold and radiator HEAT onto the rider's legs, whereas the ST1100 does not. The ST1100 is the bike preferred by police in most EUC countries, due to its handling, range, reliability, speed and comfort. The ST1100 has one of the best stock seats ever made for a motorcycle; a fully adjustable and BRIGHT headlights, and some of the best vibration-free mirrors. I love it for the torque from the 90-degree V4 that is so smooth, solid and balanced.

Features

The ST1100 was optimized for long-distance touring with the following features:

  • Low maintenance shaft drive
  • A unique longitudinal V-4 engine layout
  • Available anti-lock brakes (ABS) and traction control
  • 7.4 gallon (28 liter) fuel tank, one of the largest ever supplied for a motorcycle, giving it a range in excess of 300 miles (480 km)
  • 40 ampere, air-cooled alternator to power multiple accessories such as auxiliary lighting and electrically heated clothing Note: ST's manufactured from 1991 through 1995 were equipped with a 28 ampere, oil-cooled alternator with a separate voltage regulator/rectifier. These earlier charging systems require more maintenance than the later versions in the form of making sure all connections are clean and tight. Even with proper maintenance, they are prone to failure, given enough time and miles. The later-model alternator can be installed as an upgrade.
