Honda CMX1100 Cruiser 2021
Honda’s new CMX 1100 is going to change the way you think about cruisers.
Sure, it has the low seat height, twin-cylinder engine and relaxed riding position that make cruiser-class machines so timelessly popular. But it also has something most cruisers lack: genuine arm-straightening performance, and a chassis and suspension package that lets you dial up the pace when the road gets twisty. Plus, since the CMX 1100 out performs just about any cruiser, we didn’t fall into the trap of just making it look like grandpa’s sled either. Forget the chrome-and-fringe bling: this CMX is a whole new take on how a cruiser should look.
Everyone comes equipped with our anti-lock brake system and cruise control. And everyone performs with our Unicam® engine.
You can choose between our revolutionary automatic DCT transmission or a conventional six-speed manual.
Ride it on the weekends. Ride it at night. On the boulevard or in the hills. Dress it up or dress it down with our extensive line of Honda Genuine accessories.
The new CMX 1100 can do it all—and you’ll have a blast doing it.
1084CC TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
The CMX 1100 sports an engine that redefines what a modern cruiser can and should be. The parallel-twin design is narrow, and delivers torque everywhere from idle to redline. Proven in our Africa Twin, you’ll have plenty of power & grunt down low, but the CMX 1100 cruises easy and revs like nothing else in the class.
With a bike like the new CMX 1100, you’re going to want to get out and ride. That’s why we’ve equipped it with cruise control, just like our Gold Wings. Want to kick back and cruise on the open road all weekend long? No problem!
THROTTLE BY WIRE
Our throttle-by-wire system greatly expands the CMX 1100’s versatility. First, you get four levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control. Second, you can choose from four power delivery modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and a fourth that’s user-programmable. First used on our World-Champion RC213V MotoGP bikes, throttle-by-wire is an excellent example of how Honda’s technology works for you.
SIX-SPEED DCT AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AVAILABLE
We make two versions of the new CMX 1100: One with a conventional manual transmission, and another with Honda’s revolutionary automatic DCT gearbox. DCT is the transmission of the future, and it’s the perfect choice for a bike like this. Inside, it’s as tough as a conventional transmission, with steel gears throughout. You can let it shift for you, or paddle shifters in the manual mode give you full control. For relaxed cruising, just leave it in automatic mode and you’ll never worry about stalling or hand fatigue in stop-and-go traffic.
SPECIAL CAMSHAFT TIMING
We use different camshaft profiles and ignition timing for each of the Rebel 1100’s two cylinders. Why? One cylinder produces slightly more power below 4000 rpm, and the other more above 4000 rpm. Along with the 270-degree crankshaft, the result is a unique power pulse and feel you’re going to love. Plus the Rebel 1100 makes way more power (nearly 50 percent more) than some of the “traditional” cruisers out there.
NIMBLE AND LEAN
Cruiser style with the agility of a sports bike. Weighing just 220Kg with a full tank of fuel (manual transmission model), the CMX1100 is close to 36Kg lighter than some of its competition. That makes it easier to handle and a lot more fun and friendly to ride than some heavier machines. The light overall weight and a low centre of gravity help performance, too.
POWERFUL DISC BRAKES
The CMX 1100 features a radially mounted front-brake caliper for powerful stopping performance. The radial-mount design also helps make it stiffer, increasing brake feel and control, and grips a single, massive 330mm disc. And at the rear, there’s a 256mm disc as well for excellent stopping power.
MODERN/CLASSIC INSTRUMENT SHAPE
Another iconic element combining traditional and modern, the CMX’s instruments take a classic shape and fill it with totally up-to-date reverse-image digital LCD information. The instruments include a speedometer, tachometer, gear-position indicator, a fuel-indicator, engine output mode, torque control level, engine braking mode and much more.
TECHNOLOGY & STYLE
Japanese technology with American style. We know you’re going to want to charge up your personal electronics or run accessories like a navigational aid while you’re out riding, and that’s why we’ve provided a handy under-seat USB-C port and 3L of storage capacity.
