Honda NT1100 launch may have just been confirmed through this reveal. It is the tourer sibling of the Africa Twin ADV we already have…
HMSI has very recently filed for a design trademark of a new scooter in India. We have published that exclusive story here.
Continuing on it, we are sharing the second patent application from Honda regarding one of its very recent global launch – the sport tourer NT1100.
Honda has filed for a patent of its NT1100 on 28th of October 2021. This suggests that Honda does have something in mind regarding NT1100’s Indian introduction.
The Honda NT1100 is a premium Grand Tourer (GT) motorcycle which is derived from the Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin ADV bike.
Honda unveiled the NT1100 in the international market in October of last year. Honda boasts that the NT1100 is specially designed to be light, agile and easy handling for the city and long-distance touring alike. They describe the tourer to be everything one needs in a motorcycle.
The NT1100 is specifically designed for touring and gets features like comfort pillion seats, quickshifter or DCT transmission, LED fog lights and 50 L top-box to facilitate long distance touring.
The sports tourer is powered by their 1084 cc, parallel-twin, 8-valve engine which produces 101 BHP at 7500 RPM and 104 Nm of torque at 6250 RPM. The NT110 is offered in two specs. One gets 6-speed manual transmission equipped with quickshifter (optional) while the other spec is a Dual-clutch transmission (DCT) which offers 6-speed gear ratios.
The NT1100 gets all the premium features Honda can offer on their bikes. It gets cruise control, Showa SFF-BP suspension setup, 5-riding modes with traction control, wheelie control, DRLs, Emergency stop signal among much more.
This patent along with its connect with Africa Twin also makes another case for its Indian launch. If HMSI decides to bring it here, we expect it to cost slightly lesser than the ADV; it may start at around 14 Lakh ex-showroom – based on its international placement.
