Honda can resurrect Africa Twin Twin Bike

Honda can resurrect Africa Twin Twin Bike

July 24, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Recently, there have been a lot of rumors around the company, including about the cafe-racer, two new Africa Twin and, possibly, the new generation CB1100. And, they say, the Japanese are preparing an entry-level tourr.

The Moto Station Edition, citing its reliable source, reports that Honda is actually working on creating a Sub-Gold Wing tourer. But we will begin a little with history. In 2010, Honda introduced the NT700V in the United States, a bike with entry-level options designed for motorists who are not interested in the massive Gold Wing. But two years later, the company excluded the model from its line.

In Europe, she lived significantly longer, since 1998, and was called Deauville. In those days, the bike was equipped with a 650-cc V-twin engine, but with the advent of the US market, the volume increased to 680 cubes.

Returning to the present, we have the probability of reviving the NT, which can get a 998-cc Twin CRF1000L engine, and not a V-twin like the original model. Accordingly, the bike will be called (presumably) NT1000V and will be the younger version of the 1,800-cubic Gold Wing.

As more and more motorcycles become larger and heavier, and in the middle segment, there is also an increase, the release of such an entry-level tourer might be a better choice.
