It was always going to take a special bike to dethrone the ZZ-R1100 and the Honda Blackbird (otherwise known as the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird) was exactly that. Purpose-built as a ballistic hyper tourer, the Blackbird is classic Honda: both an exercise in no-compromise corporate dominance and also a fabulously refined, comfortable, slick and usable motorcycle in its own right.

This late model Super Blackbird is finished in two tone metallic grey in good condition cosmetically for the year and mileage. This is a largely original bike with Garmin Satnav, heated grips, center stand and a Givi V46 top box. The bike has an incomplete (stamped history) but a stack of service receipts. The bike comes with pannier rails and colour coded panniers (cannot be fitted in conjunction with top box). Free UK delivery, 3 month warranty.
