2021 Honda Hunter Cub CT125
Honda teased us last year with a tantalizing glimpse of its CT125 Hunter Cub update as a concept model, and now it looks like the bike is going into production and coming to our side of the pond. Based on the legendary Super Cub that also recently saw a relaunch with an updated, modernized model, the Hunter Cub is built with a bias toward back-road/off-road work. Laced wheels and stealth knobbies join with the already handy little Super Cub platform and a specially-tuned, 8-plus horsepower plant to boost its terrain-tackling capabilities.
Honda revealed its Neo Sports Cafe concept and it looks brutishly handsome.
If there was ever any inkling about Honda not making the best looking motorcycles, here is your opportunity for redemption.
Showcased at the ongoing Tokyo International Motor Show, Honda officially unwrapped their brand new concept of the Project NSC (Neo Sport Cafe) which has caught every motorcycle aphrodisiac’s attention ever since it was teased earlier this month in two separate videos.
Say hello to the ultimate Japanese luxury tourer, the 2018 Honda Gold Wing.
"43 years and millions of miles later, we can’t stop wondering what lies beyond".
This is Honda’s bet to give us a revolutionary new touring machine that promises to heighten our experiences to whole new levels of satisfaction. Presenting the all-new 2018 Honda Gold Wing.
The “couch on wheels” is not an “old man’s bike” anymore. What it is, is a scintillating new machine that brings in Honda’s long legacy of precise engineering and craftsmanship into one single amalgamate that will, without any hesitation, entice modern and old folks alike.
Designed from the ground up, this model packs in all the bells and whistles you can fathom including the electronic suspension and the new 124 hp engine that performs like a well-built athlete compared to the previous generation Gold Wing, making all that past feel old and outdated.
Prepare to be blown away.
Honda’s Neo Sports Café gets teased before the 2017 EICMA.
"JAPANESE CRAFTSMANSHIP" and the "Spirit of CAFÉ RACER". This is how Honda described its new Neo Sports Cafe motorcycle project that will be unveiled to the world on November 6th, just a day before the EICMA Milan motorcycle show.
Although the teaser showed not many details, it is certain that it will have classic design lines with modern underpinnings. As the name suggests, the Neo Sports Cafe will have a modern-retro take on the CB 150R street motorcycle Honda launched for the Thailand market last month.
Honda’s new flagship tourer is no more a secret. The 2018 Goldwing.
Earlier this month, Honda has released a video as part of a five-part ad campaign that hints the launch of something that will take you to "What lies beyond". And we had speculated it to be the brand new 2018 Honda Goldwing. Looks like we didn’t fault there.
Expected to debut sometime in October, this behemoth from Japan has caught the internet frenzy wave and hasn’t been spared. Low-res media images of the 2018 model have been leaked and it’s nothing but exciting.
Having won four successive Dakar Rallys with its NXR-750, Honda launched the original XRV650 Africa Twin in 1989. It was a lighter, higher-spec version that preceded the XRV750 Africa Twin — a dual-sport bike more closely modeled on the NXR-750 — which Honda produced until 2003. With the renewed and growing interest in the adventure-bike market, Honda is back with the CRF1000L Africa Twin.
In order to carry the legacy of the "Africa Twin" name, the designers focused hard on what made the original XRV750 Africa Twin such a great bike: off-road performance, on-road touring comfort, and the nimbleness and agility to be an all-purpose, everyday bike.
Released in the UK in late 2015 and slated for its U.S. debut in early 2016, the CRF1000L Africa Twin pays homage to its predecessors as well as embraces modern technology by offering Honda’s exclusive automatic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) technology, specifically developed and programmed to provide the off-road ability the Africa Twin legacy demands.
