Honda took the wraps off its retro-influenced Neo Sports Cafe, its newest concept motorcycle with clear links to both its CB1000R and an earlier concept sportbike it debuted two years ago.
Honda said little about this concept, other than to describe it as a "naked sport model that combines the fun and beauty of a sport bike with a new-generation motorcycle package." The production version will make its official debut next month at the EICMA show in Milan.
Much of the chatter around this concept suggests that it foreshadows an update of the CB1000R, a naked sportbike with a 998cc, inline-four engine that Honda unveiled in 2010. It also bears a strong resemblance to the CB4 concept it unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan in 2015.
The Neo Sports Cafe gets a metallic red finish, a round LED headlamp and a water-cooled, fuel-injected inline four-cylinder engine. Honda released two teaser videos, which you can watch below.
