Campaign to bring the CB1100 back to Australia
Honda Australia has stopped importing the CB1100 into the country. Forum member Phil Hastie (Phastie) has started a campaign to encourage Honda to reconsider and bring the bike back to Australia once again. I thought this deserved some extra attention, thus this announcement.

Good luck Phil!

Unfortunately (and inexplicably! Smile) they didn't sell very well in Australia. This proved a bonanza for those of us who picked one up brand new for a 'fire sale' price. The downside to that is Honda Australia will be very reluctant to get burned again. I should add that stranger things have happened, so I will cross my fingers for you.

RE: Campaign to bring the CB1100 back to Australia
Hate to be the bad news person but the chance of this bike coming back for sale in australia is highly improbable (impossible )

The first batch sat in most dealerships for 2 years (mine for over 2 years ) and the only way to clear them was a $2000 bonus to the dealers from Honda so this plus selling them for cost less the 2 grand they found a market .
Having said that at their original price they were way overpriced and not worth the original retail price.

Compared to most countries, transportation costs to Australia should be a bit lower. Can anyone tell us what original retail list prices were in 2010 / 2011 (in US dollars)?

My recollection is that they retailed for around A$15,000. That's just under USD$13,500 at today's exchange rate. I might be wrong, though, about the price. Other Australian members may know.

Why so much? Are other bikes costlier in Australia than in the U.S.A. ?

Apparently NZ will not be getting any official 2014 CB1100`s either, this information came whilst talking with Honda NZ this morning.
