Features[edit]

The ST1100 was optimized for long-distance touring with the following features:

  • Low maintenance shaft drive
  • A unique longitudinal V-4 engine layout
  • Optional antilock brakes (ABS) and traction control system (TCS). 1996 and later Models equipped with ABS also have front-rear linked brakes (LBS). ABS model years from 1992 through 1995 have traditional separate front and rear braking systems.
  • 28 l (7.4 US gallon) fuel tank, one of the largest ever supplied for a motorcycle, giving it a range of about 300 highway miles (480 km)
  • 40 amp, air-cooled alternator to power multiple accessories such as auxiliary lighting and electrically heated clothing (Early models had a problematic 28 amp alternator which can be upgraded to the 40 amp version)

Recalls and common problems[edit]

Corroded swingarm on a 1994 ST1100

Models manufactured from 1991 to 1993 were issued a recall due to issues with a defective bank angle sensor which may have caused the engine to shut off unexpectedly.[4]

Corrosion on the swingarm, seizing brake calipers and poor paint quality are issues which affects the older bikes particularly.[5]
