The unforgettable 6-cylinder motorcycle concept from Honda

Honda EVO6 Concept was first shown at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. The EVO6 Concept is powered by a large six-cylinder engine that was adopted from the design of Honda Gold Wing Tourer. EVO6 aggressive design is a combination of a Honda Sport elements with a Cruisers.

Here’s a concept: Take a flat-six cylinder engine which has a capacity of 1,833 cc. Machine of that size can afford to power up to 240 hp (179 kW), put it in a minimalist chassis and give it slick, modern styling.

There’s a single-sided swingarm and the usual electronic instrumentation you see on show vehicles, but what’s really interesting is what you can’t see in the first publicity photos that were circulated in magazines and on the ’net: the absence of both gearshift or clutch levers.

Instead, Honda uses its all-new "Human-Friendly Transmission" or HFT. This may be a jump in transmission technology, using hydraulic pressure to efficiently transmit power. It offers a "D" position for everyday riding (Driving?), an "S" position (Sport?) for quicker acceleration and a six-speed manual mode, as well.

It drive on 17-inch billet aluminum wheels with a 220 mm rear tire. Even the inside of the exhaust pipes have been rifled like the inside of a gun barrel. Thin seats that are attached to the tail section design that is very popular at this time sportsbikes.

While the engine is great and the stylists - were open and very striking - beautiful sleek design complements the sporty and stylish tank mounted thereon. At the rear, swing-arm that holds the rear wheel side is expected to further add to the exoticism that is usually found in a pure sport bike. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CENTRE HONDA GENEVE | MOTORCYCLE USA]
