HONDA CB1100TR, the Tribute Bike


The Honda CB1100TR Concept turns the retro CB1100 superbike into a tribute to fallen MotoGP star Marco Simoncelli.

Sporting Super Sic’s iconic #58, the CB1100TR is definitely a genre-bender. Although it has the look of a dirt track machine ready for a mile-oval in the United States—bearing more than a passing resemblance to the Honda RS750 of the 1980s—it happens to be shod with nicely worn pavement-only slick tires. Yes, those are Pirelli Diablo Superbike tires on the forged aluminum Marchesini Racing M7RR Genesi wheels.

Other aftermarket additions that turn the street-going Honda CB1100 into the race-ready Honda CB1100TR Concept are Öhlins piggyback reservoir shocks and inverted forks, along with a pair of very serious radially mounted Brembo calipers in the front and a Nissin caliper out back. We can only imagine what that abbreviated Termignoni muffler sounds like when the air-/oil-cooled CB1100TR is approaching redline.

Above the #58 on the number plate, it reads “From Honda R&D Europe to SIC”. Indeed, the Honda CB1100TR was built by Honda R&D Europe in Rome, which calls the bike the King of Urban Flat Track Circuits at it is truly a labor of love.
