Based on Honda's highly successful line of [[DOHC]] air cooled engines the CB1100F was the last and arguably most desirable of the series.  Available in the United States for only one year, 1983, the CB1100F's came in two stunning colors colors Candy Pearl Kapiolani Blue and Candy Pearl Maui Red.

The Honda CB1100F Super sport is a [[Motorcycle]] offered in the USA only in 1983.  This rare jewel is argued by many to be among the best [[Motorcycle]]s ever built.
  
 +
In 1979 Honda produced a Double Over Head Cam ([[DOHC]]) 750cc engine that rocked the [[Motorcycle]] industry with its double cams and solid [[power-band]] the 750cc engine produced 72BHP @ 9000RPM, this engine was used in [[Honda_CB750F|CB750F]] from 79-82 in the USA.  In 1980 Honda released the [[Honda CB900F|CB900F]] using a race bred 901cc [[DOHC]] engine it was a step above the CB750 with its longer stroke and hotter cams squeezed out 84BHP @ 8500RPM.  The only years the CB900F was offered in the USA where 1981-1982.
  
 +
In 1983 Honda gave the United States a chance to own the CB1100F!  This bike was leagues beyond its 2 ancestors.  Using hotter cams, larger pistons, and a redesigned [[combustion chamber]] the CB1100F produced 108BHP @ 8500RPM (International model produced 115 HP). Honda also increased the rake and put on a cool 1/4 [[fairing]] for wind deflection.  The dash featured a 150MPH speedometer and 2 piece handlebars.  The wheels are new also they where cast 1 piece instead of the standard com-star or spoke design.  In 1983 only 2 colors offered on the CB1100F in the USA were Red and Blue.
