2011 Honda Motorcycles

Honda will reveal a new 2011 motorcycle at the Milan EMCIA show the will have the attitude of a naked performance bike, with the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure motorcycle.

This crossover Honda is a mid-range capacity motorcycle, and although it may look like a regular adventure bike, it has a much lower seat height so it can be used comfortably by different sized people.

With the low center of gravity of a performance bike it is great fun to ride, and because of its wide handlebars and upright riding position is stated to be easy to maneuver and comfortable.

Honda research had revealed that customers want a motorcycle that has both a unique style and is also fun to ride in all conditions throughout the year. Honda is claiming to have delivered this customer request.

This sketch is an early impression of the motorcycle developed by Honda designers at the Honda Design Center in Rome Italy.

The final production motorcycle will be shown for the first time at the EICMA show in Milan starting Nov. 2 2010, when pictures, the date for production and date of availability in Honda motorcycle dealers will be revealed.

Honda will also reveal at EICMA a new concept motorcycle using the 1200cc V4 engine first seen in the VFR1200F, to further prove leadership in this evocative and powerful engine configuration.
