BEST IN SHOW: Honda CR-Z Concept 2009
The motorcycle display at the Toyko Motor Show features a number of interesting motorcycles. Making its world premiere, the CB1100 explores the potential of the air-cooled, 4-cylinder engine while building upon the aesthetic appeal and riding taste of the generations of CBs.
This is our second updated from the Tokyo Motor Show. We are standing here by the new 2010 Honda CB1100. It is powered by a newly developed air-cooled, 4-stroke, inline-4 DOHC engine that reminds me of my old days in England. The engine is said to be full of torque at low and medium rpm range with some moving horsepower at the top-end. Honda has designed this bike to capture your nostalgia with its simple retro design and muscular riding appearance.
We’re here live at the Tokyo Motor Show and here’s a couple of motorcycle tidbits that we won’t be getting in America. Unfortunately! The cool retro-CB1100 Honda and the CBR1000RR in Red/White/Blue paint scheme. C’mon on Honda – we want these motorcycles in the USA!
The good news is that we will be getting Honda’s stunning-and long awaited-new 2010 VFR1200, the replacement for the age yet still capable VFR800. We’re here to ride the motorcycle later this week… more details to follow!
