How much should I ask for?
What I have done in the past is ask a higher price and if they want to dicker with you offer to lower the price at the cost of removing upgrades. People usually want the upgrades and if not you can sell them separately and recover some of the revenue.

If this comes to the states I’m getting it.

The CB1100 is not a super fast bike (by today's standards), nor the fastest Honda, but I won't complain about 110 MPH in 4th in less than 12 seconds.

Note that the 2014 CB1100 pulled the FZ09 in the beginning.

FZ09 is 115 HP at 10,000 RPM, 65 ft lb at 8,500 and 11.5:1 (premium fuel).

Recent bikes:
2018 Yamaha XT250
2016 Moto Guzzi V7II
2017 Yamaha TW200
2012 Triumph Bonneville
2002 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Sport
2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLH883

RE: How much should I ask for?
It really comes back to the designed purpose of a given bike. The CB1100 promotion videos show a guy out for a nice relaxing ride. Where work, or home with the kids, or the evening news may be hectic, the ride is relaxed and he is decompressing. He's taking in the scenery, the air, the bumps, the motor rumbling along, the sound, the feel. The Kawasaki RS bikes are in the same vein but not as relaxed. Water cooled. Faster paced. The old Z motto was kind of let's see how fast she can go. Not as much feel from the motor as soon in the rpms. Neither is wrong. And I think many would have both if money were no object. The KAW 900RS Café is a nice looking rig, for sure. Takes many of us back in time.

Nicely scribed! That is the reason I enjoy my CB1100 EX. Thumbs Up

Fortunately I have no work stress or kids. I removed my wrist watch the first day I retired. Stopped watching TV news because I found it aggravating. Nothing I can do about all the foreign wars and violence anyway.

Sounds like my brother in FL. Never thinks about time. Never watches the news.

RE: How much should I ask for?
The bike is great for a relaxed ride. It has some balls too. Just not as exciting as I would like it to be. I would like to keep it for those relaxed rides but fear it would sit between rides for too long.
Room is also a premium in my garage. I could fit three bikes and “the cuss” (my car) but two bikes fit perfectly in one bay.
