Honda CBR1100XX

The Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird was a motorbike produced by Honda from 1996 until 2007. Honda created the bike to compete with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11 as the world’s fastest production motorbike, and it succeeded with a peak speed of 178.5 mph (287.3 km/h). The championship was won two years later by the Suzuki Hayabusa, which achieved 194 mph (312 km/h). The Blackbird is named after the Lockheed SR-71, which also holds the world speed record.

It boasts the greatest displacement engine in Honda’s CBR lineup.


In the mid-1990s, Honda was keen to build the world’s fastest production motorbike and seize the related bragging rights and marketing clout held by Kawasaki’s Ninja ZX11. This resulted in the development of the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. The name Blackbird is a reference to the Lockheed SR-71, the world’s fastest production aircraft.

The CBR1100XX was tested at a peak speed of 178.5 mph (287.3 km/h) in the February 1997 edition of Sport Rider magazine, compared to 175 mph (281.6 km/h) for the ZX-11. Motorcycle Consumer News verified its superiority over the ZX-11 in April 2007, however the speeds obtained were somewhat lower and the gap was narrower.

The Suzuki Hayabusa surpassed the CBR1100XX in 1999. It was featured as the world’s fastest production bike in the 2000 Millennium Edition of Guinness World Records, with a peak speed of 194 mph (312 km/h). Hayabusa is the Japanese name for the Peregrine Falcon, a raptor that feeds on blackbirds.
