The colour scheme is going to be interesting to see ...

All I need is the tank.
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

I believe it is also android also 5kgs lighter than the CRF1000. I wonder what the wait of the rumored 850 AT will be. All the Manufacturers are now raising there game big time,

Clever strategy by Honda...
Bike is now loaded with all the "yuppy gimmicks" - so it may steal some customers from the 1200+ cc monsters...
Yet it should be more useable in a broader context and offer better value for money!
The T7 and 790 should be safe as this 1100 is obviously not targeting that segment - although the difference in price maybe rather small.
Really don't know where the 850GS and 800/850Tiger is going to find a "space" in the sun - in any case not at their current pricing!!

Where the CRF1000 was a bit "luke warm" - this 1100 appears to tick a lot more boxes!  :thumleft:

Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.
