1997 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird, 1137cc. Registration number P679 CJT. Frame number JH2SC35A 2VM 001541. Engine number SC35E006451. In the mid 1990's, Honda was determined to produce the world's fastest production motorcycle and to take over the associated bragging rights and marketing impact, at the time held by Kawasaki's Ninja ZX11. This led to the creation of the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird, the name is a nod to the Lockheed SR-71 aircraft, the world's fastest production aircraft. In the February 1997 issue of Sport Rider magazine, the CBR1100XX was tested at a top speed of 178.5 mph compared with 175 mph for the ZX-11. In 1999, the Suzuki Hayabusa overtook the CBR1100XX with a top speed of 194 mph, Hayabusa is the Japanese term for the Peregrine Falcon, a species of raptor which preys on blackbirds! CJT has MOT history from 2013 at 44,659KM through to 2022 at 49,331 Miles (one presumes a dial change and recalibration). In August 2021 it was set up at John Warrington Motorcycles dyno, producing 140hp at 9685rpm. Sold with the V5C, a new MOT and a copy of the dyno report.
