The Honda Hawk 11 will be unveiled in Japan shortly
Honda has announced that it will unveil the new Hawk 11 (Hawkeye Eleven) at the 38th Osaka Motorcycle Show to be held in Japan from March 19-21.
Touted as a new “road sport model” by the bike manufacturer, the Hawk 11 is a great motorcycle that has been developed with the needs of experienced riders in mind.
Honda says the bike will have sleek styling and meet the “various needs” of the brand’s customers and say no more. However, he released a small teaser video of the upcoming bike.
The Honda Hawk 11 has a round LED headlight with a DRL ring, a half fairing that extends to the fuel tank. It also uses bar end mirrors and the same indicator units found in the Africa Twin.
So, it’s clear that the Hawk 11 will be a retro-style cafe racer based on the same platform as the Africa Twin and NT1100. The chassis would however have undergone slight modifications.
However, the engine – a 1084 cc parallel twin – will remain unchanged. It should produce over 100 BHP and around 105 Nm of peak torque. This model is unlikely to come with the DCT option.
It is clear that the Hawk 11 will serve as a replacement for the CB1100 in the ranks of Honda and the Japanese firm should think about bringing it to India, especially since it already markets the Africa Twin there.
