The all-new 755cc parallel twin engine, which has been Honda’s most eagerly anticipated project, has finally been unveiled. This revolutionary powerplant will be powered by two upcoming motorcycles—the Hornet roadster and the previously sighted Transalp adventure bike.
New Honda Hornet Streetfighter: Specifications
This brand-new 755cc engine produces a maximum of 75Nm of torque at 7250 rpm and 91bhp peak power at 9500 rpm. This engine is coupled with a six-speed transmission. The X-ADV, Forza 750, and NC750X are all powered by Honda’s existing 745cc parallel-twin engine. Still, it only produces 58bhp, which leads us to assume that the redesigned 755cc engine will be considerably more enjoyable and interesting to ride.
This parallel-twin motor has a 270-degree crankshaft, just like the Yamaha MT-07. Whether Honda offers a DCT version of this upcoming motor is still unknown. Ideally, this information will be available during its international launch.
Honda asserts that the Hornet project was extremely significant to them and that they intended to create a motorcycle that was engaging by having high top-end performance and low-to-midrange torque simultaneously. Interestingly, the Japanese company hasn’t mentioned Transalp, which indicates that the Hornet is the main focus. However, the Transalp was recently sighted while participating in a professional photo session, which leads us to believe that both bikes will be released this year.
