I agree except for this statement:

"This is actually the 2nd relaunch of the CB1100 here in America, as Honda first brought this retro-styled standard back to the U.S. in 2013. But, it turns out it was a little too retro and not modern enough to attract many buyers, so Honda stopped importing it just two years later."

Why are the 2013/2014 models "more retro and less modern" than the 2017 CB?

Good review, but I differ with the following broadstroke:

"An inline-4 stretching across a cradle frame has been a CB hallmark since 1969; and here there’s 1,140ccs worth."

Uh, not exactly. Let's not forget the CB125, CB175, CB200, CB250, CB350, CB360, CB400T, CB450, CB500T... None of these were inline-4's.

The 2017 is more retro because it has spoked wheels.
