In less than a few weeks after the bike’s first render image was first published by Japanese publication, Young Machine, it looks like the real deal is already upon us.
Honda just officially confirmed the existence of the new Hawk by dropping a teaser image of the upcoming motorcycle, the Hawk 11.
The Honda Hawk 11 is set to premier worldwide at the 2022 Osaka Motorcycle Show, which runs from 19 to 21st of March.
While the image did not reveal much, as of other teasers, it does showcased an extreme closeup of the headlight, cowl and turn indicators of the Hawk 11.
Nevertheless, the teaser itself is not far of the render image published by Young Machine a couple of weeks ago.
More importantly, as confirmed by previous reports, the Hawk will carry the same 1100cc parallel-twin engine (hence the “11”) widely shared among the CRF1100L Africa Twin, Rebel 1100 and NT1100.
While earlier reports suggest the Hawk 11 is intended as a replacement for the outgoing CB1100 and the CB1100 RS, rumours persist that it could end up replacing the CB1000R as well.
