A scrambler type motorcycle derived from the Honda CB1100? Yes, please. We’ve made no secret of our lust for the new the Ducati Scrambler and even more so for the Husqvarna 401 Svartpilen and 401 Vitpilen concepts. But we’d like more of them in various shapes, sizes and capacities.
Alas, this beautiful machine you see below is not a production model from Honda but a build by French dealer CBO. First spotted on Motorbiker, this gorgeous machine takes the rather plain looking Honda roadster into a desirable take on the cafe/retro racer scene. Of course, with the donor bike weighing a hefty 248kg, you’re not likely to be taking this scrambler off road – but 99.99% of Ducati Scramblers will suffer the same fate.
Powered by a 1140cc air-cooled 4-stroke 16-valve DOHC inline-4, the CB1100 has a well deserved reputation as being an extremely reliable and rideable motorcycle.
So, please Honda – make this thing happen.
