The ST1100 (ST from Sport Touring, 1100 from the engine capacity) began its production in 1990 and ended in 2002, although the police variant, the ST1100P, is still available as of 2007.[1] A revamped model, the ST1300 which is also called the Pan-European, was launched in 2002 worldwide and was available in the US in 2003.

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.
  • 7.4 US gallon (28 l) fuel tank, one of the largest ever supplied for a motorcycle, giving it a range in excess of 300 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

Corroded swingarm on a 1994 ST1100

Models manufactured from 1991 through 1995 were equipped with a 28 amp, oil-cooled alternator and a separate voltage regulator/rectifier. These earlier charging systems require more maintenance than the later versions in the form of making sure all connections are clean and tight. Even with proper maintenance, they are prone to failure given enough time and miles. If desired, the later model alternators can be used as an upgrade.

Models manufactured from 1992 to 1993 were issued a recall due to issues with the bank angle sensor which may have caused the engine to shut off unexpectedly. [2]

Corrosion on the swingarm, seizing brake calipers and poor paint quality are issues which affects the older bikes particularly. [3]
