What will a café racer bike of the future look like? Here's Honda's thoughts on the matter, showcased by its new CB4 Interceptor bike concept at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.
The black – or
'Total Black' as Honda puts it – concept bike is the work of Honda's research and development department in Rome, and It continues in similar vein as the
'Neo Sports Café' styled CB4 Concept displayed at EICMA 2015, but according to Honda the Interceptor takes a direction towards what it calls Sport Endurance. Under all this buzzword bombardment lies the newly introduced CB1000R; the CB4 Concept two years ago foreshadowed the new CB1000R, but was based on the CB650F instead.
In addition to the futuristic appearance, the bike has a neat gadget in the form of the infotainment touchscreen: the screen is powered by a fan in front of the bike, utilizing kinetic energy for all the rider's onboard connectivity needs. The screen delivers navigation apps, the ability to make emergency calls in the case of an accident, or just connects to the rider's mobile device.
