Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. 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.

By 2002, the Super Blackbird had gone through a major revision which included fuel injection, a ram-air intake system, revised linked braking system, larger fuel tank (5.8 -> 6.3 gallons), and digital displays in the dash.

Manufactured in October of 2002, this example is VIN: JH2SC35043M600096. The seller is the owner of Adrenaline Cycle in Swansea, Massachusetts and this comes out of his personal collection. He acquired it two years ago from a local private party.

The odometer shows 22,359 miles.

It was fully serviced by Adrenaline Cycles five months ago with a valve check and full fluid flush.

Modifications:
Tinted windscreen.
