Naz Narrates – Honda CB100 Twister – What to expect
We have already seen the spy pics of Honda’s new 110cc motorcycle called ‘CB100 Twister’. Although the Twister series comprises of powerful engines of 250cc or 300cc but the one introduced in our country tomorrow would only be 110cc capacity. The high capacity Twister series bikes are operating very well in the Brazilian market.
In India, Honda is aiming at the customers who are oriented towards stylish bikes and not just fuel efficient bikes in this commuter section. This would mean this bike will be very different from an ordinary 100cc boring commuter bike.
The 110cc Twister is also expected to have class leading power and torque ratings, much better than market leader Hero Honda. It is said to come with a 22mm carburetor with a one of a kind exhaust system. The bike will house a completely new engine which won’t share common grounds with any of the Hero Honda commuters. You may expect an upgraded version of this bike with Fuel Injection, the similar way Honda did for its CBF-Stunner.
The bike will borrow its design from bikes like CB1000R and the CB300 Twister. The tank shroud design would be somewhat similar to CB1000R. The headlight has been designed keeping in mind the designs of the CB1000R, the CB300 and the Hornet 600.
The bike’s fuel tank will be borrowed from CBF Stunner 125. Now coming to the rear section of the bike, it would be based on the CB300’s design. In order to keep the costs low, LED tail light is not expected. The bike will feature disc brake up front with the rotor having a completely new design and a drum brake at the rear. The rear suspension will have two individual shock absorbers with the red springs that can be seen on most of the HH commuters. Honda is trying to provide this bike with all the latest features and technology and the bike is expected to be around 45k mark.
Personally I would suggest that if any of our readers is planning to buy a motorcycle from the commuter section, hold on for now and wait for this bike to hit the market. The bike is expected to set a new trend in the 100 cc market and I don’t want you guys to repent later.
