Honda Hawk 11 Cafe Racer Debuts In Japan
At the ongoing 2022 Osaka Motorcycle Show, Honda unveiled their newest neo-retro cafe racer, the Honda Hawk 11. The new Honda Hawk 11 is based on the Honda Africa Twin 1100 ADV bike and the Honda NT1100 tourer. It is now only available in Japan, although reports suggest it will be available in Europe by the end of 2022. Unfortunately, the Honda Hawk 11 motorcycle will not be available in India. In any case, the Africa Twin-powered roadster has a semi-fairing up front with a low, flowing transparent windscreen and an all-LED headlamp setup, which adds to the neo-retro appeal.
Honda Hawk 11 Cafe Racer Based On Africa
The new Honda Hawk 11 motorcycle will be available in two colour schemes: Deep Glossy Blue with White Alloys and Silver/Black with Black Alloys. Although its style is inspired by historic cafe racers, it is packed with cutting-edge technology innovations that elevate it to the status of a cutting-edge machine. It has a fully digital LCD instrument console, three ride modes, traction control, engine brake control, and an immobiliser, among other features. It will also be fitted with the Honda Rebel 1100’s wheelie control system.
The Honda Hawk 11’s power output is yet to be revealed, but we do know that it will be powered by the 1,082cc parallel-twin engine seen in the Honda NT1100, Honda Rebel 1100, and Honda Africa Twin. The Honda Hawk 11 will have a different tune than the Honda NT1100, although it will be closer to 102 horsepower. The gearbox available at the time of the debut may be a 6-speed manual or a DCT automatic. The Honda Hawk 11 shares its underpinnings with the Honda NT1100 and the Africa Twin, so anticipate 43mm Showa forks up front, a Showa monoshock with dial adjustment in the back, and Nissin brakes on both ends. The Honda Hawk 11 has a very aggressive stance because to its elevated seating position and low clip-on handlebar.
