Honda announce seven more additions to its comprehensive 2021 European motorcycle line up
Honda Motor Europe is pleased to announce the latest updates to its ‘2021 year model’ European scooter and motorcycle range.
Increased cubic capacity for Honda’s range-topping SH brings with it faster top speed and improved acceleration. The engine is also now EURO5 compliant. A refined frame design saves weight while all-new bodywork evolves the style and includes LED headlight, taillight, indicators and LCD meter panel. There’s also now a USB Type-C socket under the seat.
One of Europe’s favourite all-rounders gets a well-rounded evolution: more power for the engine, plus higher redline and revised gearbox ratios, which come hand-in-hand with Throttle By Wire management, 3 riding modes and refined, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control. Its renowned fuel efficiency is maintained, and a full 6kg has been shaved from the kerb weight. A redesigned frame is clothed in sharper-edged styling, the unique up-front storage compartment is usefully larger and seat height 30mm lower. The Dual Clutch Transmission variant continues to offer a technology unique to Honda on two wheels. A new screen, LED lighting and LCD dash round out the update.
Honda’s ground-breaking X-ADV gets a comprehesive update: more power for the engine, plus higher redline and revised gearbox ratios, which come hand-in-hand with Throttle By Wire management, 4 default riding modes, refined and expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control, all with no loss in fuel efficiency. A redesigned frame is clothed in all-new bodywork and the seat has been re-shaped for easy ground reach. The storage compartment is usefully larger and includes a USB charger; there’s also now a glovebox. Twin LED headlights feature Daytime Running Lights and a 5-inch TFT display allows smartphone connectivity via the new Honda Smartphone Voice Control System.
Honda’s fashionable SH variant receives a style refresh, LED headlight, next-generation enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF) and enhanced Smart Power Plus (eSP+) four-valve, water-cooled SOHC engine. New wheels are fitted with fuel-saving tyres. Also now included in the specification is a glovebox with USB Type-A socket, more under-seat storage and Smart Key operation.
