American Honda Motor Co. has introduced four more motorcycles into its 2011 lineup, increasing the total to 43 models.
“The 2011 new-model rollout has been an exciting time for Honda and all motorcycle enthusiasts,” American Honda Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino said in a press release. “We’ve had a big year with many great models, especially the brand-new CBR250R and CB1000R, which have done much to round out our lineup. These 2011 machines will bring considerable depth and variety to our dealers’ showrooms this spring, and ‘I’m pleased to say even more good news is in the works as we’ll begin to announce 2012 models shortly.”
The just-announced 2011 models include:
– The Stateline, which combines traditional looks and progressive elements. It has a wider seat with more of a lean-back angle, a wider handlebar for upright and relaxed stances and a blacked-out engine. MSRP is $11,799.
– The Sabre, with an MSRP of $11,899, has a 1,312cc V-twin engine with Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection. It includes a 21-inch front wheel, a 15-inch rear wheel and a seat and handlebar that yield a forward-leaning riding position.
– The Shadow Aero, with its classic retro styling, has a low seat height, a V-twin engine with Programmed Fuel Injection and an MSRP of $7,999.
– The NT700VA ABS touring bike comes with ABS, a fairing, interlinked saddlebags and a V-twin engine. The MSRP is yet to be determined.
