1999 Honda CBR 1100 XX Blackbird SOLD

Here we have an excellent example of the Blackbird, this time finished in, appropriately, black. This one has covered exceptionally low miles and this shows in the condition. The bike has been thoroughly prepared and is ready to ride.

About Somerset Classic Motorcycles

We choose our bikes carefully and then we prepare them thoroughly. All our bikes are fully serviced, not just an oil and a plug change but a complete check including brake linings, tyre condition and battery health. Anything which doesn't come up to scratch is replaced and our bikes are supplied with an MOT and all the documentation we have collected.

Whilst in our care they are kept in a secure, heated and humidity-controlled storage facility until their new owner takes possession, Viewings are by appointment and delivery can be arranged to any part of the UK.

Contact us for more details.


Looking Back

Originally from the mid 90’s, the Honda Super Blackbird was famously built to wrestle the title of world’s fastest production motorcycle from Kawasaki. With the resources at their disposal, they were always likely to succeed and indeed, they did. The top speed of the Super Blackbird was in excess of 180 mph and the title was Honda’s (a title it kept until the arrival of the Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa in 1999).

Not for nothing was the bike names after the famous Lockheed SR71 Blackbird, still the fastest manned air-breathing aircraft ever made. Yet, if that was all they had made, the bike might not have been the success it was and have the following it still has. What they did create was a bike capable of putting its’ sensible trousers on and becoming a civilised touring bike.

All that power was provided by a conventional engine but with twin balancer shafts creating a smooth power delivery and a bike you could ride all day. Naturally the bike was heavy and demanded careful attention at low speeds but once on the move the bike was easy to handle, remarkable stable on the road and, being a Honda, was designed not to bite your head off.

That said, take it above 5,000 revs and it would immediately take the hint and show you what it could do. If touring wasn’t what you wanted, it would provide the kind of performance normally reserved for sportsbike riders. In short, it could give you whatever you wanted in a road bike.

Little wonder that it gained a following, perhaps inspired by the idea of riding the world’s fastest production bike but offering so much more than an out and out racer. It was a bike you could ride all day which never seemed to be out of its’ depth.
