Average CB1100 Rider Age
So I know honda expected this bike to be bought by the guys who wanted to re-experience the CB750's of their youth, but I'm curious how old the people who actually bought the bike are... I'm probably the youngster of the group at 29.

I don't own one yet, but I'm 53- right in their target demographic.

Lol, so it looks like I'm either the only youngster who likes this bike... or the only one who could afford one... I guess I've always been a bit of an oddball.

But I don't mind reaping the benefits of owning a bike targeted to the older crowd... The insurance on the CB compared to the naked bikes marketed to my age group is about half the price.

Nah, I'm 27 and this to me was the best bike possible, if a little spendy. I don't really care what the target demographic is, I just love this bike Smile

I think you made a wise decision. The Hinckley Triumph Classics or the Honda CB11. All cool non cookie cutter crusiers! IMODO!
My son loves the CB11 as well at 36YO. He grew up in a motorcycle riding family.

PowderToastMan well said and a good attitude!

It's a good sign when youngsters like you and PowderToastMan show an interest in this type of motorcycle. Now, go spread the word among the young'uns! Big Grin
