Honda’s new 110 cc naked-bike Twister was unveiled late last week, but not here. The bike is expected to be a huge seller in India, where its $900 U.S. price tag and 1.4 L/100 km fuel rating should endear it to customers.
The Twister is powered by a 109 cc overhead cam, two valve, carbureted, air-cooled single that will pump a maximum of 10 hp through a four-speed transmission.
A double-cradle steel frame keeps it all together, with 17 inch alloy wheels and conventional forks, double rear shocks, front disc brake and a rear drum. Total weight is 108 kg.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India wants to sell 220,000 of them annually. You won’t likely see any of them in Canada — unless Buell starts giving them away as incentives.
