Engine, all day comfort, reliability, build quality, tank range.
Linked brakes, lack of front suspension adjustment.
This is my second Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird in 3 yrs. I have fitted Ohlins rear shock to my present model (fuel injected) and it has totally altered the handling (pity about the front end though). It's still a very quick bike with all day two up comfort. Just waiting to see what Honda bring out in the near future as a replacement. I would recommend a Blackbird to anyone, top piece of kit, it will chase anything on the road, tour across the continent and worry a few sports bike riders on trackdays. Try one, you never know, you might like it.
