A renewed engine and a greater feeling
100 cc have been enough to change the face of this tested parallel twin the 2020 model of which reached a displacement of 1100 and over 100 hp of maximum declared power, at he same time increasing reactivity and usability throughout the whole range of use.
The greater power is perceived throughout the entire period of use, but it‘s in the medium revs that you enjoy the elasticity of this engine which, combined with the other aforementioned innovations of the AT 2020, amplifies its rideability even more .
To reward its maneuverability and feeling and to appreciate the improvements, you can now count on a swingarm completely redesigned on the geometry of the one used by the CRFs for cross, on the point of contact between the saddle and the tank at knee height in average narrower by 2 cm. and on the Showa EERA electronic suspensions that do their job very well based on the selected riding mode.
The real "must" of this flagship if used for long journeys is surely the DCT gearbox combined with the Bosch IMU inertial platform, further refined in this evolution to be even faster in shifting, soft and precise which allows you to travel totally relaxed, maybe with the cruise control set!
With this evolutionary step, Honda has raised the concept of Adventuring. The level increases a lot as does the price.
In one definition: Designed to venture off into new horizons.
