Honda CB 1300 Super Four 2004

For its return to the clan of big roadsters, Honda returned to the good recipes that make the success of the Yamaha XJR 1300 and Suzuki GSX 1400. It was also about time that the world’s leading manufacturer offered a machine of this type on our market. Because since the disappearance of the X-11, nothing !

Honda still had to think twice: the too bland CB 1000 did not convince, the X -11 did not find its customers, and the Hornet 900 plays in another category. So, what about this CB 1300? An elegant line, a "stature" respectful, classic double-cradle frame that holds a vigorous and modern 1,284cc 4-cylinder. OK, nothing revolutionary compared to other Japanese machines in this group; and yet, this machine bewitches more than another…

Driving is most enjoyable. Suitably seated on the well-designed saddle (but a bit firm), we take advantage of the extreme flexibility of the engine and pleasant controls. Clutch and gearbox are a treat. From then on, we can concentrate on the essentials: driving pleasure … and let ourselves be overwhelmed by the intoxication caused by the 4-legged injection. Discreet at low revs, it leaves a short delay for you to hang on to the handlebars before pushing in a breathtaking manner. A generous spin of the throttle after 3,000 revs and it seriously messes up until the end of the tachometer; regardless of the gear ratio, the boiler has so much in the belly that it plays with all the reports. With so many watts, carrying its 250 kgs is done with astonishing ease. The pace is rising. From stroll to winding, we can even come to a sport register, the machine follows. No need to move your body, everything is done with the right hand. Approaching the curve, braking: power and feeling are present.

The front guides the big CB brilliantly. In tight sequences, his weight resurfaces, but the balance remains stunning. Obviously, to get a rigorous machine, suspensions are a bit firm. Thus, the CB 1300 cannot claim the softness of an XJR. And yet she is proving to be a good companion at a leisurely pace. The driver chooses to indulge in a bucolic ride with the ever-present possibility of giving himself a good boost – or to treat himself to a good dose of sport on the handlebars of a roadster. The whole distilling a flavor of the most spicy.
