Honda has revealed the 2022 Honda NT1100 for the international market. This touring motorcycle based on the brand’s CRF1100L Africa Twin adds another cruiser option to Honda’s portfolio. These adventure styled sport touring motorcycles are getting increasingly famous recently. The other options include the likes of BMW S 1000 XR, BMW F 900 XR, Yamaha Tracer 7, Yamaha Tracer 9 and more. Even though Honda has the African Twin in this segment, the Honda NT1100 is more of a traditional touring model. Both the African Twin and NT1100 share a lot of mechanical parts, including the engine and chassis.
The 2022 Honda NT1100 gets the parallel-twin cylinder 1,048cc engine. The 8-valve engine makes 100 BHP of power and 104 Nm of torque. Honda is using the semi-double-cradle frame with a bolt-on aluminium subframe. Supporting the chassis is the suspension setup that consists of 43 mm Showa USD forks at the front and a Showa mono-shock at the rear. This new bolt-on aluminium subframe aids the motorcycle’s luggage-lugging capacity. Braking duty is taken care of by 310 mm twin discs with radially-mounted callipers up front and a single 256 mm disc at the back. There are two gearbox options, a 6-speed manual and a DCT automatic. The fuel tank capacity of 20 litres will provide a range of around 400 km, which is quite some distance.
Some of the key highlights of the touring motorcycle include Full-LED lighting, Self-cancelling indicators and Emergency stop signals. Honda also offers USB and ACC socket, Centre stand, 5-stage adjustable windscreen, Panniers as standard and more. In terms of electronics, Honda provides electable Torque Control (HSTC), Wheelie Control, three default riding modes (Urban, Rain, Tour), and two customisable riding modes. Alongside this, Honda NT1100 also features a 6.5-inch TFT touch screen that offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity options. In the UK, Honda has put on a sticker price of GBP 11,999 for the manual gearbox. Meanwhile, the DCT trim will retail at GBP 12,999.
