Honda will develop the HAWK 1100, based on the current non-twin 1084cc water-cooled twin-cylinder engine. The new car will also have a Cafe Racer-style exterior design, which has been illustrated in Japanese media.
Kawasaki's new technology is a safe ride assist system that monitors the road surface with a front-facing camera and a rear blind spot sensor. The front-facing camera is used to enable adaptive cruise control and collision warning.
In addition to the price cut, the main change for the 2022 Model is the addition of a sliding clutch to improve the driving experience, which officials say will address rear wheel bounce and tail wagging in some cases.
