Written by Nizam Shaikh

Honda is planning to discontinue the CB1100 RS from the brand’s international portfolio. Honda Motor Japan announced that the brand would be launching a Final Edition of the Honda CB1100 RS with a picture of the air-cooled engine block. This leads us to believe that the brand plans to take the large air-cooled engine off the market. Honda could be making the move due to the ever-tightening emission norms. The future norms may not allow big air-cooled motors in the future.
