I've had a bunch of Hondas. I was thinking about one last bike as I near retirement, and I gazed upon a mint 2013 Honda CB1100. I had to have it. It was everything I wanted.......Except, after my back operation in 2020, balancing all that weight was, shall we say, problematic.

Live and learn.

The RE Intercepter is 100 lbs lighter. Though not a lightweight, by any means, the 100 lbs less weight is manageable. It checks all my boxes. Except the made in Japan VIN and the Honda name, but you can't have it all.

The local Tucson dealer gave me an out the door price of $7940.27. Seems a bit steep for a $5999.00 bike.

What do you guys think?

I haven't decided to trade the CB1100 beast or sell it yet. Probably get ass-raped if I trade it.

Thanks for the input,
Brian

That was a RIPOFF price. Maybe your bike market is stronger than other places around the country, but I paid $6100 for my 2022 Canyon Red Int 650 here in St. Louis, Missouri.

Sorry I haven't responded sooner, but I thought I had answered several weeks ago.
In the State of Missouri, all the extras you mentioned are collected by the state DMV, but I figure approximately $450-$480.
I've also made some changes to lose excess weight like replacing the entire exhaust system and all the unnecessary (to me) things like passenger grab rail, lift handle, centerstand, etc.

I don't think you spent too much. There is such a demand that these dealers are getting freight, prep and doc fees on top of the price of the bike. I looked at a 2022 in FL and dealer wanted $9,800.00 out the door. That being said, I purchased a gently used 2019 for much less from a private owner. Post some current pictures when you can. Have a great day!
