It’s another concept bike from Honda that we’ll never get to see in production form.
Honda have an amazing habit of releasing stunning looking customs at EICMA and this year is no different. Last year they showed their CB1100TR Flat Tracker Concept and we fell a little bit in love. This year they’ve released this – the CB4 ‘Interceptor’ Concept and it really does look great on the Honda stand.
Honda say that the ‘new concept model adds an evocative ‘Sport Endurance’ tone to the original design language of the CB4 Concept, creating a new perspective on the world of the Café Racer, on which the series is based.’
The colour scheme is “total black”, combining ‘elegance and sportiness’ apparently, while leaving room for a futuristic technology integrated into the flowing design lines.
The front of the bike features a fan used to convert the motorcycle’s kinetic energy to power the touch-screen located on the tank – although this is a concept so the touchscreen was actually just a piece of plastic with a picture on it. Honda also say that the screen will provide constant connectivity, to allow the rider to follow the road through digital maps, make emergency calls or simply to connect devices.
All of which is lovely and we’ll never ever see it again. [Insert sad face emoji here]
