2022 Honda NT1100 launched abroad
The NT1100 is an Africa Twin-based touring motorcycle from Honda, that's designed to appeal to those who want more than what Honda's 750 touring range has to offer and not want to bear the steep cost of the Honda's flagship touring model - the Honda Goldwing.
Taking the heart of the Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin as a starting point, the NT1100 builds on its platform and is said to offer more comfortable and enjoyable touring-friendly performance. The 1,048cc 8-valve parallel twin motor, that's nestled in the steel cradle frame with a bolt-on aluminium sub-frame, produces 102PS at 7,500rpm of maximum power and a max torque of 104Nm at 6,250rpm.
The new NT1100 by Honda will be available with both DCT as well as manual transmission options. The seat height of the tourer is lower than the all-terrain motorcycle, and the steering geometry has been sharpened as well. These altered features combined with high specification suspension are meant to create the more street-focused sport-touring package. The NT1100 comes with a five-way height and angle adjustable screen and upper/lower wind deflectors ensure high-speed aero efficiency and weather protection. In the UK, where the bike has launched, cruise control is standard, as are slim panniers and heated grips.
The NT1100 also features a 6.5-inch TFT touch screen that offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity options, while coming prepped with a good number of riding aids in the form of three default riding modes, along with two user customisable options, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and wheelie control. The suspension setup comprises a 43mm Showa USD fork at the front and a Showa mono-shock at the rear both units allow 150mm of travel. Radial-mount four-piston front calipers provide the braking power, 120/70-17 and 180/55-17 front and rear tyres the grip.
While the NT1100 with manual transmission cost £11,999, while the DCT will be priced at £12,999 in the UK market. The new bike is offered in three colour options - Matte Iridium Grey Metallic, Pearl Glare White, and Graphite Black.
