Honda presents the 2012 Integra, which takes its name from the fact it integrates the ease of use of a scooter with the dynamic performance of a motorcycle. It has a feet-forward riding position, protection from the elements, internal storage, and the option of an automatic transmission in the shape of the second generation of Honda’s innovative Dual Clutch Transmission; at the same time it offers stability and handling not found on a scooter. The result is a unique and desirable modern machine, conceived to deliver a totally engaging riding experience while benefiting from the environmental and safety technologies customers expect of a 21st century vehicle. At the heart of this new machine is a purpose-built engine and transmission package. The liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder 670cm3 engine is a lightweight and compact unit positioned to give a low center of gravity. It offers strong torque at low to medium engine rpm, where riders spend the vast majority of their riding time, together with a very usable power delivery, low exhaust gas emissions and superb fuel efficiency. Some key features are offered below with further information available here.
Dynamic Performance – Mounting the engine and advanced transmission in a rigid steel diamond frame, the Integra offers the stability and handling performance of a conventional motorcycle. High-specification suspension, CBS and ABS, large-diameter 17″ wheels and wide 120/70 front and 160/60 rear wheels and tyres further enhance the riding experience.
All-New Engine – An all-new 670cm3 in-line two cylinder unit developed to offer superb fuel efficiency (27.9km/l) together with strong performance particularly at low and medium engine rpm, the engine is key to the Integra’s fun riding experience and all-round versatility.
Advanced Transmission – The Integra’s Dual Clutch transmission uses two clutches to deliver fast and smooth gearshifts in a choice of three modes. Manual (MT) allows the rider to shift gears using triggers mounted on the left handlebar, while automatic mode (AT) offers two settings: S for sporty riding and D for urban and highway use.
Stylish Practicality – The Integra is a bold and original styling statement, fusing new forms, slick surface treatments and strong lines. It offers a high level of wind protection and a relaxed, comfortable riding position.
