- Unlikely to be launched in India

Honda is scheduled to globally debut the Hawk 1100 at the Osaka Motorcycles Show that is scheduled from 19-22 March. While the Japanese manufacturer tried to keep it under wraps, leaked images of the Café Racer-style motorcycle have given it away. 

Now, the Hawk 1100 draws heavy inspiration from the CB4 Interceptor Concept that was unravelled in 2019. While the concept was radical for obvious reasons, the production version seems a bit toned down. But nonetheless, we aren’t complaining.

Sporting a retro-style bubble fairing with a circular, full-LED headlamp upfront, low, clip-on bars with uniquely positioned mirrors, what looks like a single-piece seat and a chunky, upswept exhaust, there is a lot going on in terms of design. Yet, it is seemingly retro enough for a modern motorcycle. 

That said, the Honda Hawk 1100 is expected to use the Africa Twin CRF1100L’s parallel-twin mill. Just like the NT1100, which is also based on the adventure-tourer, the Café Racer is likely to get a tune of its own. While details are scarce at the moment, we wouldn’t have to wait long as the Osaka Motorcycle show will commence today, 19 March. However, its India launch is unlikely to happen anytime soon as the country does not have a big market for such motorcycles.
