Honda’s CMX 1100 is going to change the way you think about cruisers. Sure, it has the low seat height, twin-cylinder engine and relaxed riding position that make cruiser-class machines so timelessly popular. But it also has something most cruisers lack: genuine arm-straightening performance, and a chassis and suspension package that lets you dial up the pace when the road gets twisty.

Key features

1084cc twin-cylinder engine with DCT automatic transmission available

The CMX 1100 sports an engine that redefines what a modern cruiser can and should be. The parallel-twin design is narrow, and delivers torque everywhere from idle to redline. Proven in our Africa Twin, you’ll have plenty of power & grunt down low, but the CMX 1100 cruises easy and revs like nothing else in the class.

Cruise control

With a bike like the new CMX 1100, you’re going to want to get out and ride. That’s why we’ve equipped it with cruise control, just like our Gold Wings. Want to kick back and cruise on the open road all weekend long? No problem!

Throttle by wire

Our throttle-by-wire system greatly expands the CMX 1100’s versatility. First, you get four levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control. Second, you can choose from four power delivery modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and a fourth that’s user-programmable. First used on our World-Champion RC213V MotoGP bikes, throttle-by-wire is an excellent example of how Honda’s technology works for you.

Powerful disc brakes

The CMX 1100 features a radially mounted front-brake caliper for powerful stopping performance. The radial-mount design also helps make it stiffer, increasing brake feel and control, and grips a single, massive 330mm disc. And at the rear, there’s a 256mm disc as well for excellent stopping power.

Blacked-out style

Our family of CMXs are blank canvases for your self-expression. But unlike the canvas you buy at the art store, they’re not boring white. As is, its blacked-out engine pieces, frame, fork and bodywork elements look great during the day and even better at night. We even black-plated the final-drive chain!

Classic yet modern instrument shape

Another iconic element combining traditional and modern, the CMX’s instruments take a classic shape and fill it with totally up-to-date reverse-image digital LCD information. The instruments include a speedometer, tachometer, gear-position indicator, a fuel-indicator, engine output mode, torque control level, engine braking mode and much more.

Light overall weight

Weighing just 220Kg with a full tank of fuel (manual transmission model), the CMX1100 is close to 36Kg lighter than some of its competition. That makes it easier to handle and a lot more fun and friendly to ride than some heavier machines. The light overall weight and a low centre of gravity help performance, too.

Under-seat storage and USB-C terminal

We know you’re going to want to charge up your personal electronics or run accessories like a navigational aid while you’re out riding, and that’s why we’ve provided a handy under-seat USB-C port and 3L of storage capacity.
