Honda CBR 1100 XX Super Blackbird (Blackbird) - is sport-touring motorcycle built by Honda. It combines big engine power, Easy operation error-tolerance with excellent comfort and almost perfect manufacture quality. Blackbird production started in 1997 and ended in 2005.
In the US, the Motorcycle was sold as the CBR-1100XX. In the rest of the world, Honda chose to use the more verbose monicker "CBR-1100XX Super Blackbird".
Suzuki stole the crown in 1999 with the Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa, which boasted an extra 5mph or so at the top end. Perhaps not entirely coincidentally, "Hayabusa" is the Japanese name for the peregrine falcon, which preys on smaller birds such as blackbirds.
