Commuting, Sports, Touring or all three? Up to you.
That’s the great thing about the NT1100. It’s so versatile. Sleek aerodynamics, a large, 5-way adjustable screen and upper/lower deflectors provide superb wind protection. But compact dimensions are just right for urban riding. The seat, with an 820mm height, is comfortable for two and matched to a flexible riding position that allows you to engage, or relax. And, as you’d expect, equipment levels are high. Alongside panniers fitted as standard, the NT1100 is loaded with a 20L fuel tank – giving around a 250 mile range (WMTC mode) – also as standard: heated grips, cruise control, USB/ACC sockets and rear carrier; along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Six-speed DCT is well suited to this bike: if you want to change gears, trigger-shifters offer razor-fast control, up or down, from the left handlebar. Or, choose efficient, seamless shifting, with 3-level S mode if you need sportier performance.
A centre stand, fitted as standard, makes rear wheel maintenance easy.
Tuned for Acceleration
The muscular twin-cylinder engine offers strong performance from low rpm, with 104Nm peak torque, just what you need for effortless overtaking.
It also drives smoothly to the redline and tuned for a deep, pulsating and characterful sound.
Three default riding modes, URBAN, RAIN and TOUR, cover most conditions and two USER options allow you to fully customise engine output as well as the 3-level HSTC and Wheelie Control.
Fast Steering, Surefooted Confidence
This is a motorcycle that handles lightly and accurately, however you ride it. With the steel frame’s rigidity optimised for strength, feel and stability, the 43mm Showa cartridge-type USD forks and rear shock, working an aluminium swingarm through Pro-Link, return impressive suspension reaction and a precise cornering experience, no matter the conditions.
Rear spring preload is hydraulically-adjustable to suit the load you’re carrying. 120/180 section front and rear tyres ensure maximum grip and stability and there’s smooth, progressive ABS-controlled braking power available when you need it.
Honda has sold over 200,000 DCT-equipped motorcycles across Europe since the system first appeared as an option on the VFR1200F in 2009. Testament to its acceptance in the market place, across Honda’s model range, 53% of customers chose the DCT option over the manual in 2020. The system delivers consistent, seamless gear changes and very quickly becomes second nature in use. It uses two clutches: one for start-up and 1st, 3rd and 5th gears, the other for 2nd, 4th and 6th, with the mainshaft for each clutch located inside the other for compact packaging.
Each clutch is independently controlled by its own electro-hydraulic circuit. When a gear change occurs, the system pre-selects the target gear using the clutch not currently in use. The first clutch is then electronically disengaged as, simultaneously, the second clutch engages.
The result is a consistent, fast and seamless gear change. Furthermore, as the twin clutches transfer drive from one gear to the next with minimal interruption of the drive to the rear wheel, any gear change shock and pitching of the machine is minimised, making the change feel direct as well as smooth. Extra benefits include durability (as the gears cannot be damaged by missing a gear) impossibility of stalling, low stress urban riding, reduced rider fatigue and – crucially – the ability to concentrate more on riding lines, braking and acceleration points.
The DCT system offers two distinct riding approaches – Automatic Transmission (AT), with pre-programmed shift patterns which constantly read vehicle speed, gear selected and engine rpm to decide when a shift should occur, and Manual Transmission (MT), for gear changes using the paddle-shift style triggers on the left handlebar.
There are two settings within AT to choose from; D mode offers effortless riding and maximum fuel efficiency. S mode serves up 3 levels of sports-based shifting. Level 1 is the most modest, changing gears in the medium rpm range. Level 3 is the most aggressive and operates at high rpm with Level 2 is the intermediate point between the two. The preferred selection can also be saved.
Stay In Touch and Never Get Lost with Full Connectivity
Bright and easy to read, the 6.5-inch TFT touchscreen offers three levels of information – minimum to maximum – to suit individual preference. Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® and Bluetooth® connectivity allows access to smartphone functions – such as navigation, music and calls – via the display and a helmet headset. Daytime Running Lights (DRL) automatically adjust to ambient light intensity and alert other road users of your presence. Over 50km/h, the self-cancelling Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) indicates a hard-stop situation to those behind. The indicators also auto-cancel.
The NT1100 has been designed, from the outset, as a sporting, agile bike but one that’s also enjoyable to ride all day with efficient, protective aerodynamics and easy-going ergonomics centred around rider comfort.
Styling is subtly sophisticated with straightforward surfaces that emphasise key character lines. Dynamic elegance front to back are the defining features of the design language of the NT1100. And of course this motorcycle’s sleek form is also about function – aimed to elevate the quality of the riding experience.
Fitted as standard, upper and lower deflectors provide wind and weather protection around arms and lower body. The screen offers 5-stage adjustment for height and angle through a total 164mm between the high/low position. Set low, it sends air around the shoulders; set high it moves air over the rider’s helmet. Heated grips are standard equipment, as is cruise control.
The rider integrates into the machine neatly, enveloped by the protection offered by the fairing. A wide, thick seat material offers a luxurious expanse for two; seat height is set at 820mm. A large grabrail for the passenger extends from the rear rack.
The exhaust muffler, too is set low to maximise pannier volume. And it’s the standard-fit, detachable panniers that are one of the NT1100’s key features. Deliberately designed to be as slim as possible for around-town riding they are just 901mm across at their widest point. Pannier volume is at 33L left and 32L right.
Bright and easy to read, the 6.5-inch TFT touch screen offers 3 choices of screen display; GOLD shows all numeric and mode information. SILVER centres on the speedometer and rev-counter, BRONZE on the rev-counter. The background colour has a default setting plus the choice of black or white. Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® and Bluetooth connectivity allows access to smartphone functions via the TFT display.
The premium specification is rounded out by full LED lights (with DRL), self-cancelling indicators and Emergency Stop Signals; practicality is further elevated by USB socket, centre stand and ACC socket as standard.
Koji Kiyono, Large Project Leader, NT1100: At Honda we have a long tradition of catering for owners who desire a ‘traditional’ touring bike. Our previous Pan European and Deauville models have enjoyed a very loyal following for many years. So, when it came time to design a new touring model, we wanted to produce something that would resonate – and appeal broadly – to these traditional touring bike customers. But we also wanted to stoke desire in riders of all ages and tastes who are looking for a genuinely new and versatile fun bike. That’s why we’ve created our new NT1100, offering thoroughly modern engine performance, a fun-to-handle chassis, a suite of modern technology and completely fresh, distinctive styling.
