Does everything well

I own a Cbr1100xx 2006.
Pros- big torque down low, with huge top end rush aswell. More comfortable then a sports bike. Brakes are fantastic and always feel I could stop in any given situation. Looks beautiful. Headlights actually do there job! Excellent on fuel, big tank. Has a centre stand which I love.

Cons- bike is heavy, has linked brakes, not sure if I'm a believer as I like to make my own decisions, regardless how well they work.

Best Honda Ever

Bought my 2005 model in Feb 2006 brand new. Use it almost every day for work and pleasure. Never had a problem with it mechanically just the usual maintenance issues, brake pads, tyres, chains, sprockets, etc.

Now done over 217,000 Kms, still rides like new. Woudn't trade up for anything else. Maybe a newer model Blackbird.

Excellent fun bike

I purchased my 2006 bird a few years ago on the recommendation from 2 workmates because my previous 09 CB400 didn't quite cut it on the highway and I must say what a brilliant machine the bird is, beautifully balanced, awesome acceleration, fantastic brakes, comfortable to ride and sounds great with the staintune pipes I added. It starts first time, every time and I have no intentions whatsoever to upgrade to a newer bike, Honda has smashed it out of the ballpark here but it will eat your license in second gear if not careful.

2nd Blackbird,the perfect bike

Wrote my first 2006 Blackbird in black off. Bought the second 2006 bird in black again two years later, this one with genuine Honda panniers. No other new bike interest's me, but would love Honda to make a 1400cc bird.

These bikes are a pleasure to ride. Also fitted a taller screen and a throttle lock, the rest is original.

My first superbike what a thrill!

Bought new in 2004 when on special for 15990 and never happier for the purchase.The last of the all blue blackbirds before Honda tried the two tone paint scheme.Now nudging 90000 km without a single issue .Would suggest the use of Pirelli angel dual compound tyres which are a harder compound and wear more evenly.Have contemplated selling/changing brands but the return to the bike after the demo ride proves how good the Blackbird really is.As sedate or as fast as you want but always comfortable and with excellent road manners.

The new agressive price reduction of the VFR1200F has me interested though.

Wow

I picked up a 99 1100xx with 100k miles. FLAWLESS and insane. I've since put another 15k on it. By far the most amazing bike I've touched. Rides like new. Smmoootthh, powerful, and addictive. Only only only only negative is the motor gets hot in traffic. These bikes want to stay moving

I love my Blackbird

Best bike I have owned, a 2006 Blackbird in black. I wrote my first one off then bought another. It is comfortable with risers. My wife loves going on the back. I commute every day and I still love riding it on weekends. Summer and winter. Some say it is heavy but I've never noticed that. I also like the linked brakes but be aware brake pad changes are expensive because they have to bleed the whole system. For a great touring machine nothing else compares.
very fast, reliable, beautiful, smooth
can get hot when idling a lot in summer (but the fan kicks in to cool it down)

Speed, Comfort, Looks - and did I mention Speed?

Awesome bike in every way. Comfortable, very quick and not too bad to look at either. Have owned mine for about 6 years now and still love it! Not made new any more but if you can get a good/honest second hand one then go for it. For a looks 'upgrade' try changing the front indicators to clear lens units and the rear tail light to an LED one.
Acceleration, comfort, speed.
Non-adjustable front suspension.

The Crow, what a great surprise

I bought an 01 Redbird to replace a Daytona 955 as medical issues dictated a bit more room. 1000k plus days, mucking around with mates on sportbikes it did it all. Reasonably comfortable for a big bloke. When I wrote it off ( my fault) I didn't hesitate to buy another one.
Smooth, fast comfortable, easy to live with, reliable.
Placement of some things is a bit fiddly for the home mechanic. Can find yourself at "go directly to jail" ph if you don't keep and eye on it!
