Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1997 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. Please note: Mileage is incorrectly listed as 8,294 on the title which is reflected on VINData; true mileage is 33,490 kilometers (20,809 miles). Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

From 1990 to 1996, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11 was the world’s fastest production motorcycle, and Team Green benefitted from all sorts of press and rider excitement about that fact. Honda decided to steal the crown, and their weapon of choice was the CBR1100XX. It was also known as the Super Blackbird outside of the US – the name was an homage to the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, which has owned the record for fastest “manned airbreathing jet” since 1976. Honda only had the record for three years until Suzuki released the Hayabusa (which was amusingly named as the “peregrine falcon” because they prey on blackbirds), but it was still faster than you’d ever need.

The XX was capable of 175 miles per hour thanks to 162hp/88lb-ft of output from the 1,137cc inline four engine. These bikes are known for being very reliable with owners putting on lots of trouble-free miles. While future efforts from Suzuki and Kawasaki were faster, many publications thought that the Honda was the best all-around bike of the bunch. It also makes you wonder why Yamaha never tried their hand at taking the speed crown.

This example is VIN: JH2SC35A7VM006422. The seller recently imported the bike from Japan.

The odometer shows 33,490 kilometers (20,809 miles).

According to the seller the bike had an oil and filter change before it left Japan. He believes the bike is still restricted.
