Sure, you can go out and buy the new Honda NT1100 as a stop gap, NOT! What a massive fail :151:  Which is a great shame, I like Honda and own one now and two other models previously but god, what a terrible looking bike, supposedly a European Two-Up capable Tourer but with no adjustable damping, a chain and 100HP? I would rather have the much better looking NC750X and ride it solo. (I don't own an NC750X). Phew, got that off my chest!

Which should have been in seperate topic  :182:

I am assuming Dealer launch before  the UK bike show but if demonstrators not available til April not sure when Customer ( us)  dealer launch might be  !

In Canada I was told April/May for small tank versions - July for Explorer (Big Tank Versions).

Beauty is "in the eye of the beholder as" they say - I quite like the looks but then I liked the first of the Kwak Versys 1000's as well (which the press slated for looks)

Difficult to tell but it looks like an asymmetrical front light, a trend I'm not keen on. Looks like the clutch has gone to cable, if it gives the same progressive feel as on the 1200 twins that will be a great improvement. Its looking very trim, as someone mentioned before, a 900 on steroids, no bad thing.

It’s time to release it.  Not much of a mystery anymore.
