These images are clear, the Honda Hawk 11 seems to derive from the touring NT1100 from which it takes up the entire engine-cycling framework to change the tank and superstructures.
The Hawk is equipped with the 1082 cc in-line two-cylinder engine with 270 ° timing introduced with the CFR1100L Africa Twin.
The driving position is moderately sporty, with the two-piece handlebar mounted under the upper steering plate.

We recall that the NT1100 is equipped with an Africa Twin engine, therefore with 102 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and with a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 6250 rpm.
It has a six-speed gearbox, no DCT option, a café racer setting and a classic cut line dominated by a composite half-fairing with a round headlight very similar to that of the CB1000R.
The exhaust system is the same as the NT1100 but with the tailpipe mounted more inclined.

The semi-double cradle steel frame , with rear frame and swingarm, are the same as those of the Africa Twin 1100, but the wheels are in light alloy with spokes and with a diameter of 17 inches.
The Hawk 11's wheels and braking system are apparently the same as the NT1100 and the inverted fork is still a Showa SFF-BP with 43mm stanchions and spring preload adjustment.
On the NT it has an excursion of 150 mm, it seems that on the Hawk this falls to 120 mm but official data have not been provided.

This should be discovered soon, along with the performance of the engine, the weight of the bike and perhaps pricing.
