Honda to launch three new flagship models in Malaysia.


Petaling Jaya, 12th January 2020 - Boon Siew Honda is set to raise the bar of the premium motorcycle market in Malaysia with the launch of three new flagship big bike models. These models stand to enhancing riding performance with the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP, redefine new standards of riding comfort with the 2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing and elevate the sensation of adventure with Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin and CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports.

Speaking during the unveiling ceremony, Boon Siew Honda Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Mr. Keiichi Yasuda noted that the launch of these flagship models signifies the confidence in Malaysian market as we are the first to launch these 2020 models in Asia and Oceania region.

He further added that the decision to introduce these models is to further strengthen Honda big bike product offering on top of an already impressive product line-up. Mr Yasuda remarked that “Our ability to offer these model align with our dream to excite the world”.


Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP

The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is a brand-new motorcycle, built with an unwavering focus on circuit riding, with unprecedented levels of performance and control. Its inline four-cylinder engine draws heavily on the RC213V-S’s combustion efficiency and low- friction technologies.


2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP highlights.


The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP’s 1000cc inline four-cylinder engine is completely new and designed with heavy input from the HRC MotoGP development program. It now generates peak power of 159Kw @ 14,500rpm, with peak torque 112.7Nm @ 12,500rpm.

Akrapovic partnered in development of the exhaust end-can. Constructed from titanium, its small physical size and light weight contribute to mass centralisation and right-side lean angle. The exhaust valve was also designed with Akrapovic to deliver both low-rpm torque and high-rpm power.

Second-generation semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control (S-EC) is featured on the CBR1000RR-R SP. The 43mm Öhlins NPX fork uses a pressurised damping system to minimise cavitation, resulting in more stable damping control and improved bump absorption at race-track speeds. Feel for front tyre grip is also enhanced. Its length also offers greater freedom for geometry changes. The shock is an Öhlins TTX36 Smart-EC unit.

New Brembo Stylema four-piston radial mount brake calipers are operated by a Brembo master cylinder and brake lever. They now grip 10mm larger 330mm diameter discs; the 5mm disc thickness also dissipates heat more efficiently. The rear brake caliper is the same Brembo unit used by the RC213V-S.

Rear lift control and ABS-managed brake force relative to lean angle were a feature of the previous design. For the CBR1000RR-R the system gains two switchable modes; SPORT mode focuses on road-riding performance, with high brake force and less pitching, while TRACK mode offers performance in braking from much higher circuit speeds.


Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is exclusively available in Grand Prix red.

Honda GL1800 Gold Wing

The 2020 model of the Honda GL1800 Gold Wing features improvements to suspension and slow speed manoeuvrability further complement the evocative, flat six-cylinder engine at the heart of Honda’s flagship premium tourer, which continues to deliver its unique avalanche of torque and power to transport rider and passenger in style.


2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing highlight.

The flat six-cylinder engine delivering peak power of 93kW arrives @ 5,500rpm, with peak torque of 170Nm delivered @ 4,500rpm. The bore size of 73mm matches the stroke of 73mm; the left and right cylinders are offset 4mm and the cylinder sleeves are aluminium. Compression ratio is set at 10.5:1 and improvements to the FI for 2020 have been introduced to fine tune low speed maneuverability.

The addition of Throttle By Wire (TBW) brought with it 4 rider modes to alter the engine’s character and power delivery, linked to Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), suspension damping and the Dual Combined Brake System (D-CBS). The 4 riding modes are per as follows;

In all 4 riding modes HSTC constantly allows controllable acceleration in slippery conditions.

Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission enable the Honda Gold Wing for low speed maneuverability, with close ratios reducing shift-shock. In the higher speed range, they are set wider apart to reduce engine rpm. In both speed ranges comfort is improved as shifting up or down is of the highest quality.

The 2020 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing (Tour Version, DCT) is exclusively available in Pearl Glare White.

Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin and Africa Twin Adventure Sports

A major evolution for Honda’s definitive full-size adventurer: harder-edged off-road performance come via lighter chassis, slim rally-style bodywork and revised riding position; weight is reduced by 5kg, while engine capacity is increased, boosting power and torque.

[2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin updates]


The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin has a sharply renewed focus on off-road core ability, which brings with it the look – and feel – of a true rally machine. Smaller, slimmer and 5kg lighter, it offers even more athletic performance, thanks also to changes to the engine, which now produces 7% more peak power, 6% more peak torque and is much stronger everywhere in the rev range.

And at the centre of the Africa Twin, the addition of a six axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) controls not only the 7-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) but also (new for 2020) 3-level Wheelie Control, Cornering ABS (with off-road setting), Rear Lift Control and DCT cornering detection. An OFFROAD setting also joins the URBAN, TOUR and GRAVEL default riding modes. Tailored for complete control, the riding position features a slimmer section seat and higher set handlebars.

Wheelie Control is another new feature. Again, with the IMU measuring pitch angle and rate, and controlling engine torque via TBW, the rider can choose between 3 levels of input. Level 1 allows for intended wheel lift but suppresses any sudden movement. Level 3 stops any front wheel elevation and level 2 is midway between the two. Wheelie Control can also be turned off completely.

There are four default riding mode settings: TOUR, URBAN, GRAVEL and OFFROAD To cover most riding conditions and situations plus two customisable USER settings. Even within the default riding modes, it’s possible to change some parameters – HSTC between levels 1-7 (plus off), Wheelie Control between levels 1-3 (plus off) and DCT S mode shift pattern levels 1-3.


[2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports updates]

The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports shares the frame, engine and riding position of the off-road focussed CRF1100L Africa Twin, but has a role very much of its own: to offer riders real continent-crossing long-haul ability and practicality both on and off-road.

The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports comes in the shape of a larger 24.8L fuel tank offers a potential range of over 500km, extended wind protection (from both the fairing and fairing side panels), height-adjustable screen, large engine sump guard, aluminium rear carrier plus tubeless wheels and tyres. ACC charger and heated grips are also standard fit.

For optimum suspension damping front and rear the Africa Twin Adventure Sports is also fitted with Showa EERATM as standard. Four default modes – SOFT, MID, HARD and OFF-ROAD – cover every type of riding situation, and there’s a USER mode for further fine-tuning. Rear spring preload can also be adjusted while stationary.

The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports also features three-stage Cornering Lights – also managed by the IMU – that automatically adjust the field of illumination depending on the lean angle.

The 2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin (Manual) is executively available in Grand Prix Red.
