Honda motorcycles

This year, Honda America celebrates its 50th anniversary. Having come up with a special float in the Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena earlier this year, followed by a small ceremony at the company’s headquarters in Torrance, California this month, the company now presents a timeline video as well as a press release.

Considering that this comes from a manufacturer of cars, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, power equipment, and racing vehicles, it’s impossible not to notice how the extremely significant milestone doesn’t lead to anything spectacular. Most likely, the retention is due to the global crisis affecting the entire of their fields.

See the video and read the press release after the break.

According to Solomoto30, Honda is about to launch the street version of the EVO 6 concept bike, the “supernaked” that was first presented at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.

Bassically, this is a muscle bike powered by a retuned version of the six-cylinder boxer engine behind the Goldwing 1800.

In what concerns the Yamaha VMAX and the BMW K 1300 R , they’re now facing a new challenger.

If the owner of this naked motorcycle (most likely a Honda CB1300) plans to be undetected by police radars after completely foiling the thing, then I’m waiting to hear about the results. Until then, it looks ridiculous and useless even as a form of modern art.

Believe it or not, this here is actually a 2015 Honda CB 750 concept bike, a machine that shares nothing with the original one which, by the way, we consider much better. Designed by Igor Chak, the concept drifts away from the simple technology and elegant design, but we’d still have nothing against it if, apart from the on-board computer with multi-touch display and four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine working with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, the bike would have looked less like a…brick.

The designer claims infinite electronically tuning possibilities for almost every single feature of the bike (front and rear suspension, drive mode etc) with sensors show readouts updating every 1/10 seconds even while on the way, but what’s the point of the massive bodywork? Wasn’t this thing supposed to be at least a naked bike?

We may always be on the side of big V-twin engines, but in the case of the 2009 Honda VTR250 it’s impossible not to make an exception as this user-friendly motorcycle is very popular in India and Japan where it currently sells. Honda plans on taking it to Europe as well so we’re looking at a model in full expanding of territory.

This nice video showing the bike in action (actually, there are two VTRs) has just been released and it captures the very essence of what riding a VTR consists in.

One of the most attractive concepts we’ve seen lately is the Honda CBR600RR Repsol Carbon published at deviantart by TheUncle. Middleweight supersport models rarely benefit of such treatments so it’s good to see that someone thought at the slightly discriminated 600cc CBR. Also, there are two other bikes labeled as ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Version’ and ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Blu’, but those two look like a Kawasaki and a Suzuki also prepped up for the track.

Honda has never even considered building a six-cylinder motorcycle engine to power their late 1970 CBX models, but owners have and this is the best they came up with. Apparently a regular 1979 Honda CBX, but actually being powered by a six-cylinder motor, this bike reflects the fact that manufacturers can fit an enormous engine on virtually any motorcycle and enjoy a great success. I’m counting the exhaust pipes on this thing over and over again and can’t believe how…regular it looks.

Some Nazi took Hitler’s VFR and crashed it. The Fuhrer was already planning on buying another one when he was announced that his crew of Nazis took the liberty to buy him a BMW GS. We can’t reproduce the rest, but you’re invited to watch the video. Try not to feel guilty for anything…that’s how well the video is made.

The Honda Fury project developed along five years specially for the US market and officially launched this January in New York has apparently lead to the creation of a roadster version. These sketches have been patented by Honda in the United States of America and Japanese engineers consider this model a way to fully explore the potential of the V-twin engine powering the Fury.

Called RV2, the project features elements that are more likely to be found on American choppers rather than on factory motorcycles – a massive tubular steel frame and imposing custom wheels – while British influences such as the low bars and flat seat design add a café racer look to it. Furthermore, for keeping the Fury engine and shaft drive previously used on the VTX series, Honda masks the radiator in the front end of the frame.

Honda’s Roadster model sketches also unveil an upside down fork, a 320mm front disc brake with four piston calipers as well as a unique exhaust system ending up under the seat.

Although there is no actual information related to a possible finalization of this project, the Honda Roadster 1300 could become a serious contender on the US market for various Buell models and even the Yamaha MT-01.

It’s good to get up in the morning and…live your dream. This rider living in a caravan takes his mini motorcycle for a ride and while traversing the countryside, the thing becomes a quad, an open top sports car, next a touring motorcycle and then onto a racing motorcycle. Just before driving a series of both road and racing cars, the man is found singing while piloting a speedboat towards a waterfall. But this isn’t one of those dreams gone wrong so the man is then shown in the basket of a hot air balloon singing triumphant “The impossible dream”.

In conclusion, should we buy a Honda product in order to start living our dreams? Not necessarily, although it is a good starting point.
