Boon Siew Honda (BSH) has kicked off the new year with the launch of three new models which are the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-RR Fireblade SP, 2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing, and the 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin for the Malaysian market. What a way to strengthen a brand’s big bike segment, right?
2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP – RM198,800
The world was in awe when Honda unveiled their latest flagship superbike in the form of the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP and Boon Siew Honda was quick on its feet to ensure that this very special bike arrives into the Malaysian market as soon as possible.
Heavily inspired by the track-developed Honda RC213V-S, the new Fireblade SP comes hot with a new-generation 1,000cc inline-four engine that punches out a hefty 215hp @ 14,500rpm and 112.7Nm of maximum torque at 12,500rpm.
Other major features of the new 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP are:
- Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
- Selectable Riding Modes
- Bosch six-axis IMU
- Öhlins Smart Electronic Control + NPX fork & TTX36 monoshock
- Honda Stylema brake system
Boon Siew Honda has priced it at RM198,800 (excluding insurance, road tax, and registration). Delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2020. For more information on the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, CLICK HERE.
2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing – RM208,800
The new Gold Wing has been hinted to be launched for the Malaysian market since late last year but we’re guessing that Boon Siew Honda was waiting for the right time to make its official debut. If you’re in the market for the ultimate touring machine that can eat up the mega highway distances with ease, the 2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing should be high up on your list.
Looking more like a badass bagger than the previous generation, the new Gold Wing produces 125hp and 170Nm of torque from its massive 1,800cc flat-six engine. Designed with less weight and more evenly distributed, the new Gold Wing is said to handle better, even during slow manoeuvres and traffic congestions.
Major highlights of the 2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing that folks should look out for are:
- Throttle by Wire (TBW) with selectable riding modes
- Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
- Integrated Starter Generator (ISG)
- Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
- Hill Start Assist (HAS) + many more
Want one? BSH will be selling the new 2020 Gold Wing at RM208,800 (excluding road tax, insurance, and registration). It is only available in Pearl Glare White for now. For more information, CLICK HERE.
2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin – RM98,888 to RM117,888
Perhaps, the other most anticipated models that all of us here at Bikes Republic have been waiting for is the new 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin. BSH was super-fast to bring this baby here and there will be three different variants for customers to choose; the base Africa Twin (Manual), Twin Adventure Sports (Manual), and the range-topping Adventure Sports (DCT).
While more and more superbikes are going for that ‘supersport’ sized package, the new Africa Twin presents Honda’s latest generation full-sized adventurer paired with a more compact package. Ready to kick some ass anywhere it goes, the new Africa Twin range comes with lighter chassis, slim rally-style bodywork, revised riding position, and superior off-road riding performance.
Equipped with a 1,084cc parallel-twin engine, the new CRF1100L range produces 101hp and 105Nm of maximum torque. To heighten up the whole riding experience, it also comes with a variable Exhaust Control Valve (ECV) for improved low-rpm sound and high-rpm performance.
Other updates include:
- IMU-managed Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
- Selectable Riding Modes (Tour, Urban, Gravel, Off-Road, and USER)
- Revised lighter frame with bolt-on aluminium sub-frame
- Honda CRF450R-styled swingarm
- Cornering ABS
- 5-inch TFT touchscreen + many more
