The Honda Motor Company of Japan is the largest seller of motorcycles in the world, and the first Japanese company to enter Gran Prix motorcycle racing. They established their lasting reputation in 1966 when they won every motorcycle title from 50cc on up to the coveted 500cc class plus the makers trophy.

They had been trying since 1959 to get the big wins and develop their name, and shortly after they achieved this, dropped out of all competition at the Gran Prix level in 1967. In 1975, they started racing again, but were looking this time for the long distance and endurance events, which are normally conducted with production type bikes modified for this grueling challenge.

Honda developed the RCB which was patterned after their CB750F, but was so much modified that it had little appearance of the prototype. The RCB was powered by a 4 cylinder DOHC 994cc engine with 4 valves per cylinder and produced 100 hp. During the famous Bold'or 24 hour race, Honda's RCB captured the trophy three years running and had virtually no competition at all. The Honda CB900F was copied from this RCB racer and released in 1978.

In 1981, at Earls Court, England, Honda unveiled their CB1100R, in the Bold'or colour scheme of red and white. The engine is basically a bored-out 900 engine of 1062cc which produces 115 hp. It maintains the four cylinder DOHC 4 valve per cylinder concept that has been so successful with their RCB endurance racers. The front air suspension system plus rear coil dampers are made to with-stand very tough operation.

The single saddle seat is made from fiberglass and aluminum while the large fuel tank has a 26 liter capacity. The separated type of handle bar is low positioned and the foot rests are positioned towards the rear for a slouched or racing riding position.
