Honda NT1100 2022 announced for Europe
Honda Europe unveiled the new 2022 NT1100, a street-oriented tourer based on the CRF1100L adventure bike. As of this writing, the NT1100 has only been announced for Europe, but we hope to see it arrive in North America eventually.
Visually, the design of the NT1100 resembles the NT700V (aka the Deauville), which was last offered in the United States in 2013. The fairing is designed for ride comfort and contrasts with the recent trend in the sport touring car industry with adventure-inspired styling . The windshield is adjustable in height and angle in five directions, and is complemented by wind deflectors on each side.
Cruise control and heated grips are standard, as are the integrated removable saddlebags. The cases are designed to be slim, with a maximum width of 35.4 inches at their widest point. The left housing holds 8.7 gallons while the right is slightly smaller at 8.4 gallons, to create more clearance to the exhaust. Honda says the NT1100 will get 47 mpg, which, combined with the 5.4-gallon fuel tank, would mean around 253 miles of range.
The 2022 Honda NT1100 is powered by a liquid-cooled 1084cc Parallel-Twin, similar to that used on the Africa Twin. The engine has the same 10.1: 1 compression ratio and a 270 ° phased crankshaft, but the length of the air intake duct and the exhaust are tuned to make a “hum” at low revs, Honda claiming smooth, powerful acceleration and relaxed cruising performance on the highway. Honda claims that the NT1100’s engine produces 101 hp at 7,500 rpm and 76.7 lb-ft at 6,250 rpm. That’s the same power claimed by the Africa Twin 2022, but a slight drop in peak torque.
Like its ADV brother, the NT1100 is available with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The manual model has a claimed curb weight of 524.7 pounds, while Honda claims the DCT model weighs 546.7 pounds.
The chassis consists of the same steel semi-double cradle frame as the Africa Twin, with a bolted aluminum subframe. The NT1100’s 60.4-inch wheelbase is 1.6 inches shorter than that of the Africa Twin, while the 26.5 ° tilt and 4.3-inch track should allow more precise steering than the Africa Twin. the 27.5 ° and 4.4 inches of the CRF1100L.
Showa supplies the 43mm inverted fork with adjustable preload and rear shock with remote spring preload adjustment. Both offer 5.9 inches of travel.
The wheels are die-cast aluminum, with a sand core allowing a hollow hub center for the front wheel. The intersecting spokes attach to the rim diagonally, with Honda claiming high stiffness for cornering and smoother road vibrations when traveling in a straight line. The front wheel sports a 120 / 70-17 tire while a 180 / 55-17 tire is fitted to the rear.
The brake system consists of two radial four-piston calipers with 310mm discs at the front and a single-piston caliper with a 256mm disc at the rear. We’re a little surprised that the NT1100 comes standard with 2-channel ABS instead of the IMU-based cornering ABS offered on the Africa Twin.
The NT1100 offers three selectable driving modes plus two customizable modes, a three-level traction control system and a three-level wheel control system.
The NT1100 has a stacked dashboard similar to that of the Africa Twin, with a 6.5-inch TFT screen above a smaller LCD screen. Color TFT offers customizable screens as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
At 32.3 inches, the seat height is more manageable than the AT which sits at 32.4 inches with the lowest seat option. The saddle is designed for rider and passenger comfort, with handles integrated into the rear rack.
Other standard features include a USB socket, an accessory power socket, a center stand and, when the market allows, full LEDs with daytime running lights, auto-canceling turn signals and emergency stop signals. .
Honda also offers three optional packs. The Urban pack adds a 13.2 gallon top case / passenger backrest and a 1.2 gallon tank bag. The Touring package includes more comfortable passenger seats and footrests as well as fog lights. The Urban and Touring packs can be combined to form the Travel Pack. Each of these accessories can also be purchased separately.
For 2022, the Honda NT1100 will be available in three color options: Matte Iridium Gray Metallic, Dazzling Pearl White and Graphite Black. In the UK it is priced at £ 11,999, which makes it slightly cheaper than the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT‘s £ 12,202 MSRP.
At this time, there is no indication that the NT1100 will be offered in the US, although we’ll be keeping an eye out for updates from American Honda.
