The 2024 Honda NT1100 seems to be a continuation of Honda’s strategy of leveraging its well-regarded CRF1100L Africa Twin platform to tap into the sport-touring segment of the market.

Here are some key points

  1. Colours and Design: The 2024 Honda NT1100 will have three colour options, with Matt Jeans Blue Metallic and Candy Chromosphere Red being the new additions. Matt Iridium Gray Metallic will also be available but will come with a new Matt Ballistic Black Metallic rear carrier.
  2. Engine: It uses the 1,084cc parallel twin engine from the CRF1100L Africa Twin, which provides a balanced mix of power and torque – ideal for long-distance rides. With 100.5 horsepower and 76.7 pound-feet of torque, it promises to be a powerful ride.
  3. Transmission: Honda offers both manual and their renowned dual-clutch transmission (DCT) versions, allowing riders to choose based on their preference and skill level.
  4. Chassis: The NT1100’s chassis and suspension are designed for comfort and stability, drawing from the Africa Twin. The inclusion of radially mounted four-piston brake callipers, as well as a robust rear brake system, ensures safety.
  5. Features: A 6.5-inch TFT display with smartphone connectivity and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, alongside USB and 12-volt sockets, make this bike tech-savvy. LED lighting, including daytime running lights, further modernizes the bike.
  6. Electronics: Multiple riding modes (Urban, Rain, Tour, and two customizable User modes) are available for varying conditions and preferences. Features such as Honda Selectable Torque Control, Wheelie Control, self-cancelling turn signals, and cruise control make it a feature-packed offering.
  7. Pricing: Although specific pricing for 2024 is not yet available, referencing the 2023 pricing in the UK and Germany can give a rough estimate. The 2023 model was priced at £13,499 in the UK and €14,580 in Germany. These prices may be used as a reference, but one should expect fluctuations due to factors like inflation, taxes, and demand.
