One bike I knew would be there: the CB1100. Honda, really excited about getting this model into the U.S., had invited journalists, one by one, for a brief ride near the company’s headquarters. Honda’s reps wouldn’t be drawn out on the rest of the 2013 lineup during the CB demo, even as I threatened to ride off with the only runner in the country. (My handler was on a CBR250R. Escape would have been easy.) Without actual information, I assumed the “six new” would be the 1100 plus five bikes with Bold New Graphics or maybe a light mechanical touch here and there, the equivalent of a vitamin shot to a patient with heart disease. The Honda of late is not a company to go big; it has become successful by being careful.
