Honda's CB brand of bikes is, without a doubt, one of the most famous and well-known names in the motorcycling world. The Honda CB line has gone through several versions, combinations, and displacements in its more than half-century history. Aside from the CBR family of sportbikes, the CB1300 is unquestionably the model range's most iconic machine.
Indeed, Honda Japan introduced limited versions of the CB1300 Super Bol d'or SP and CB1300 Super Four motorcycles exclusively for the Japanese domestic market on December 15, 2022. In honor of the CB1300's 30th anniversary, these versions are available in unique trim to commemorate the original Project Big-1, which debuted in 1992.
A special gold accent on the bodywork distinguishes the Honda CB1300 Super Four and Bol d'or 30th Anniversary Editions from their normal equivalents. A 30th Anniversary logo has also been placed to the fuel tank's top. The bikes also have gold-painted wheels. Ohlins suspension components on both the front and back of the bike, as well as dual Brembo radially mounted, four-piston brakes on the front wheel, round out the fancy features.
Unlike the air-cooled CB1100 model line, which was forced to retire owing to ever-tightening pollution restrictions, the CB1300 continues to trundle along thanks to the benefits of contemporary liquid-cooling and electronic fuel injection. Furthermore, contrary to popular belief, the current-generation CB1300 includes contemporary conveniences. Full LED lighting, heated grips, and a Type-C USB charger are all standard.
The Honda CB1300 Super Four and Super Bol d'or 30th Anniversary Edition versions are only available in Japan and come in the same Pearl Hawks Eye Blue colour, with a sleek, blacked-out crankcase. Only 720 of these high-capacity, special edition UJMs are scheduled to be made. The 30th Anniversary Edition CB1300s will be available for a limited time period, similar to what Honda did with the CB1100 Final Edition, so anticipate them to be snapped up soon.
