Two Honda retro-modern motorcycle concepts

Honda continues to explore the desires of consumers of motorcycle sport. In addition to carrying the latest motorcycles, they also handed over two concepts which have a touch of vintage at the EICMA Show 2015, Milan, which held November 19 to 22, 2015. They are Honda CB4 and Honda Six50.

Both are built from the CB650F and CBR650F, and designed by the Honda European's Research and Development (R&D). No information could be extracted, only the concepts are on display and ask for the visitors opinion to be decided soon be produced or not.

The first concept motorcycle is Honda CB4, using a 649 cc 4 cylinder engine. This model looks modern with a simple tank but had a muscular impression. Overhung four neck exhaust simplified into two large holes on the right side of the body.

Its main frame and supporting frame is identical with the CB650F, as well as footrests. Recognizable characteristic of this model is the use of a pair of air scoops and radiator protectors made of carbon fiber.

On the whole body is clean, including the handlebars using vintage round rearview mirror. Upholstery seem short and hanging. Single swing arm completes the impression of modern-retro owned by Honda CB4.

While the second motorcycle concept, Honda put forward the scrambler concept which is the trend now. Its base is still the same, CB650F or CBR650F. From its design, this bike looks more "wild", has various components that support the out of asphalt exploration.

For example, a combination of off-road tires and rim radius, exhaust up, until the machine guards. Its ground clearance is also higher. Interestingly, if the competitors are quite proud of the scrambler retro, Honda succeeded in lifting it with more modern faces.

It can be seen from the selection of futuristic design of boxy LED headlight. Its looks minimalistic but modern, seen from a simple tank, following the high handlebars.
There are no plans to produce those two Honda concept motorcycles. But clearly, they managed to open the eyes that the retro must not have old-fashioned looks. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG]
