Honda and Forever 21 team up to bring out fashion inspired from the ’80s and ’90s
Inspired by Honda liveries of the ‘80s and ‘90s, US high street chain Forever 21, teamed up with the Japanese manufacturer to bring about a fresh new collection of clothing and apparels priced between $3.90 and $ 58.00.
The Forever 21 x Honda capsule collection is probably our most unexpected collab to date! Taking inspiration from motorsports, the collection features bold primary colors and powerful statement graphics.
So you thought car manufacturers are the only ones that can get dibs on getting watches built for them? Think again, ladies and gentlemen, because the Honda CBX1000 Speedometer is here to prove you wrong. Inspired by the iconic 1979 Honda CBX1000, the wristwatch is the perfect complement to the lucky few in this world who still have a functioning CBX1000 inside their garages. But even if you don’t have the bike itself, that doesn’t mean you can’t own the watch.
The CBX1000 Speedometer comes with a simple layout. The leather straps are about as classic as it gets while the black face and the orange and white numerical displays evoke images of the speedometers Honda used on the actual CBX1000 models. The watch also comes in two configurations depending on the region. Those who are more familiar with the km/h measurement unit can opt to get the version that uses the system for its markings. Likewise, those in the US who recognize the mph measurement unit can get that style of the watch.
Either way, the classic styling of the timepiece, which is what you could expect from a watch inspired by one of the classiest bikes Honda has ever built. It might be a little confusing since the traditional 1 to 12 numbers have been replaced by kmh and mph markings (the kmh version runs up to 240 km/h while the mph version runs up to 150 mph).
Other notable details about the watch include the odometer, which has been set to 1047, representing the displacement of the CBX. The watch also comes with a Swiss part quartz movement and is water resistant for up to 5 bars, or 72 psi if you’re more familiar with the latter measurement.
The watch only costs €119, plus €10 in shipping fees. That converts to a total of around $150, which isn’t really as expensive as some of the more opulent collaborations we normally see from Italian automakers and Swiss watchmakers. I’m referring to you, Ferrari and Hublot.

French tuner Ad Koncept has come up with a very interesting way to customize the 2009 Honda CBR1000RR, not that much in matters of technical upgrades but more in terms of extremely attractive styling. The new Playboy scheme looks simply awesome on the standard fairing, but we do notice the Ohlins suspension, new Brembo brakes and LeoVince exhaust as well as the Rizoma special kit that was added to the bike.
The new special livery is sure to make this bike stand out even more, especially if it is ridden by one of those bunnies that we all like.
Carpenters rarely drift away from their object of activity, but when someone thinks at having a wooden fairing built for a Honda Nighthawk, bike building (or, better said, bike dressing) turns into a job for the man with few tools and plenty of imagination.
This particular creation was spotted at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show and we understand it was quite a big attraction.
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.
Check out the paintjob on this 2007 Honda Hornet 600 that I found on the web. If you want your toy to look pretty much like the one that Nicky Hayden is riding but you are in doubts because the Hornet is not fully faired, these pictures will help you decide in an instant.
