I'm surprised Honda is really going to release the CB1100 in the U.S. The Japanese have not been very successful in the past with their retro bikes here, such as Kawasaki's W650, Zepher 1100, the ZRX 1100/1200 did OK. I like the bike, it could be a great starting point for a custom, but I personally like the early 70's style (rounder tank) a little better than this early 80's style treatment. As someone mentioned, they even copied those cheap looking comstar wheels, I'd love to see it with spoke wheels.
