Up for sale (or trade) is my beautiful 2002 Honda Super Blackbird. I am 53 years old and take meticulous care of this bike. The person I bought the bike from was even more meticulous than me. This bad boy has new tires, new custom exhaust and newly powder coated wheels. There are a few imperfections in the plastics but nothing bad. This beauty includes a trunk, two sets of keys and owners manual. Now for the good stuff: No I won't ship the bike and don't ask me if I take paypal, cash only or will consider trade for 4 x 4, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Cadillac or other cool vehicle. Oh, and if you want to test ride you can, just hand over the cash and you can test drive all you want.

Copied from Motorcycle News Reveiw:
The Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird is a useable, comfortable, tidy handling sports tourer but also a ballistic power-house that used to hold the record as the fastest production motorcycle. The Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird is sensible and utterly insane in one nicely presented Honda package. One of the best all-round motorcycles out there. Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird rivals are plentiful but none match this proven motorcycle.

Copied from Cycle World:
Basic specs: A dohc, dual-counterbalanced, 1,137cc inline-four that was carbureted in its 1997 introduction and injected in 1999, when it produced 133 hp on the CW dyno. The engine is a stressed member in the twin-spar aluminum frame, which carries sport-tuned suspension and features a 58.7-inch wheelbase. Dry weight was 526 pounds, gaining 8 pounds with the addition of EFI.

Why it's desirable: The "Super Blackbird" was one of the smoothest, most refined, and powerful motorcycles to ever hit the road. The XX fell short of Speed King status by "only" reaching 177 mph, but in normal riding, the bike was a stellar all-around performer. Handling was crisp, light, and sure, with beautiful steering quality. The riding position was sporty but comfortable. Earlier suspension was stiffer but was made more supple in 1999--2003 models. Linked brakes were also improved in post-'99 bikes. The biggest upgrade was PGM-FI, which improved midrange power and fuel economy. Perhaps the best use of a CBR1100XX is as a sport-tourer, particularly in light of the 6.3-gallon fuel capacity of later models, which grew from 5.8 gallons.

The competition: While the CBR1100XX did (barely) top the 176-mph Kawasaki ZX-11, both the 1999 Suzuki Hayabusa and 2000 Kawasaki ZX-12R were quicker and faster than the Honda. What the Super Blackbird offers, though, is a much more "luxury GT" riding experience than either of these more sport-oriented machines.
