A lot more torque than the VFR800 but less power and virtually as heavy.

Compare that with current ST bikes form others manufacturers and it's clear Honda don't listen to their customers.  :151:
98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles (sold)
08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles (sold)
14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (sold)
18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles

Looks like a cross between the Africa Twin and the XADV

If looks would sell....oh, hang on they do, don't they.  :008:

In the end, it's a twin and whilst the Africa Twin has a good heritage, it's no VFR. Sadly, there is not perceived to be a large enough market to continue Honda V4 production.  :006:

aesthetics and ergonomics do resemble the crossie, so sales probably will be shite.  :008: :016:

I do like the look of it and it is fairly well priced with a lot of OEM goodies like heated grips, cruise control, centre stand, etc., but as Lars said previously the twin cylinder engine would be a step down compared to the V4.
Some of my past bikes. Norton ES2 - Norton 650SS - Velocette Venom - Velocette Thruxton Venom - Kawasaki Z1100  ST - Kawasaki GPZ 1100 B2 - Honda NSS.

I really like the side profile of the nt1100. Will leave judgement on the front till I see it in the flesh as the pics make it look a bit disproportionately wide. If it’s being aimed at the touring market, I think shaft driven should have been a must. Hence saying that, the price is very competitive and if it’s as reliable as the dresser, will be one to consider in the future. That’s if I ever change from the X. :419:

Not really a step down, more like a sidestep. Same power, more torque, different character. But not worse. In my, not so humble, opinion.

As more and more information is available about the new NT1100 I cant help but to at least give it a try. As a former CBF owner I have a certain tolerance for "boring" bikes and the purpose the NT is build for, street touring, fits my profile really well. So far it looks like a nice 2nd bike to me. The things I don't understand is why it is not available in red ( seriously ? ) and why HONDA has chosen to leave out an optional SHOWA electronic suspension which would be THE perfect fit for a touring bike.
I still have an aversion to 2 cylinder engines and honestly I feel a bit too young for the NT but then I remember the cold, wet, shitty days on tours which I feel on the NT would even have been enjoyable instead of miserable, I don't know I am conflicted. So that is why I will have to see for myself and give it a test ride once it is available. All I wish for is that test ride gives me the feeling of "yeah, that will do, its nice" instead of the "meh" feeling I had on the Africa Twin.
