Recently, HONDA passed a trademark application named NT1100 in the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), which is speculated to be the name of the new crossover car series in the future. Due to the implementation of the new EU emission regulations, some cars were forced to stop production. And what kind of new car will this NT1100 be? Previously, foreign media have launched a vision map and named it CB1100X. Although the names are not the same, they can be regarded as the same by different routes. Let us take a look!
▲The picture shows the imagination of foreign media
With the implementation of the EU V emission regulations, many car models have also entered history. Of course, HONDA, which is known as the Wing of Dreams, is no exception. The popular mid-displacement model VFR800F/X is an example of this. Although the pleasant V-type four-cylinder sound is unforgettable for a long time, it is in the strict emission Under the regulations, the lights of the VFR family can only be temporarily blown out. Therefore, it is not difficult to infer that the purpose of NT1100 is to replace the RV model of the VFR car series. After all, heavy cruising like the Goldwing is not something everyone can afford. A relatively affordable and sporty car is the ideal solution.
However, nowadays, various car factories are in full swing to develop crossover models that combine multi-function and recreational activities. For example, BMW S1000XR, BMW F900XR, Yamaha Tracer9 GT, Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE are all products born under this concept. HONDA also showed the same concept car CB4X at the 2019 Milan Auto Show, but the power core of the concept car was a four-cylinder engine, which is more difficult to implement in today’s environment.
It is speculated from the applied car name that the power core of the new vehicle will continue to use the parallel twin-cylinder engine of the current Africa Twin. The output power of the current CRF1100L engine is 102hp@7,500, and the torque is 104Nm@6,250rpm, which is quite sufficient for road trips. Even if other competitors have higher horsepower output, the high torque advantage of the twin-cylinder engine is also An opponent at the same level not to be underestimated. As for whether the engineer will change the output characteristics for the purpose, it can only be confirmed after the actual vehicle is released!
In addition, the NT One also inherited the Deauville car series from 1998 to 2013, which may be too avant-garde based on the time and space background at the time, so it stopped after the last generation of NT700V was launched in 2010. However, from the current point of view, the design of the V-type twin-cylinder engine, shaft transmission and integrated luggage is quite practical, and it may be worthwhile to stay a few more years. However, it is worth noting that in the past, NT cars have adopted the integrated side box design. The new NT should no longer use this form. After all, the detachable use flexibility will be much higher.
However, the old ones will not go, and the new ones will not come. It can be expected that NT1100 will bring a very rich electronic control system. The multimedia system is also foreseeable. After all, HONDA is very handy in this regard. HONDA can also be found on CB4X. It is planned to carry the DCT transmission system to the new car model, and the probability of NT1100 adopting the DCT transmission is also greatly improved. As for the rim, it is speculated that the front and rear tires will be 17 inches to cater to the road orientation setting.
As for when will this new SUV model debut? According to foreign media, the new car model will have to wait until the end of 2021 or 2022 at the earliest, so you can look forward to it. After all, the output performance is similar to that of the previous VFR car series. The low maintenance cost is definitely a big plus. As for the four-cylinder noise that no longer exists, different people have different opinions!
