I pine & fret for the CB1300S Bol'Dor

Why did North America not get any of the CB1300s? In my opinion, it is the sexiest bike Honda has ever made (faired or unfaired). The Superhawk is a blast, but boy I'd trade it in half a second for a CB1300.

Anyone out there have one of these?

That is indeed a good looking bike. Reminds me a lot of the ZRX, in other countries it got a half fairing similar to this.

We got a 1000cc version of the naked version in the US, just not the half faired version. The half faired version to me though just looks like a 4 cylinder VTR, and who would want that?

imported in 94 and 95

If we're talking a V-four SuperHawk 1992, this guy.

You could always grab a 1st gen FZ1. I had one and can't really say anything bad about it.
Still kinda sorry I sold it.

If you want the V twin torque, full fairing and similar styling to the Hawk? You could
possibly consider the VFR.

CB1100R concept bike. Kind of like Honda's take on the retro thing like Ducati did with their sport classics. They've already brought the CB1100 to market, maybe they'll do the same with this...

Not so much. I had been ruined by my Aprilia Falco, so much that when I had to sell it, and bought a VFR, I was very disappointed by the lack of torque. Or something. I dumped that bike and picked up a VTR and was smiling again.

If the OP really wants one I can keep an eye out here for when comes up for sale. They are quite common.

It will just need converting to Right Hand drive.

My favorites are all the 80's superbikes, like the CB1100Rs below, updated with the latest wheels and suspension. Seems to be pretty popular in Japan. So cool.

nnjhawk02 is an unknown quantity at this point
IDK

It looks cool - BUT how much does it weigh??

Better off with a lighter weight moto.

Thats why the FZ1 & 6s were so popular. Now they make an FZ8.

But - its still not a V-Twin - Nuff said
