The Japanese famed motorcycle maker, Honda Motorcycles has unveiled 3 different concept motorcycles which it is going to showcase at the upcoming 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. All the 3 concept revealed by Honda are totally different in terms of concepts with the first one being a lightweight sports motorcycle, the second one being a 3 wheeled urban personal commute vehicle and the third one is based on Honda’s super popular Super Cub.
The first concept will be a light weight super sport motorcycle concept which according to Honda, will imbibe a sense of speed due to its design cues like a long nose, sharp styling and a crouched position. Honda hasn’t revealed any further technical details about the motorcycle concept including engine specifications. However, as rumours are awash over the online media, the lightweight super sports motorcycle concept will be Honda’s take on the fast growing 250cc segment which has the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the newly launched Yamaha R3.
Another concept to be showcased is the Honda Neowing. The Honda Neowing is a 3 wheeler personal commute concept. Honda says that the Neowing was designed with the intention to ride, feel and corner like a regular motorcycle while also offering low speed manoeuvrability. Other competitors Yamaha and Kawasaki have already explored this area with their Tricity scooter and the J Concept respectively. The Neowing gets a hybrid powertrain which has a 4 cylinder boxer engine and an electric motor. It’s not clear if the electric motors power the rear wheel, or the front wheels, though we imagine Honda would tout the all-wheel-drive setup if it was the latter.
The third concept from the Japanese manufacturer is the EV-Cub based on its superbly popular Honda Super Cub. Unlike the Super Cub, the EV-Cub gets electric motors as propulsion devices which will be run by a battery pack. The battery pack has been packaged in a smart way to keep it as low as possible for best centre of gravity. The battery pack is detachable and can be charged by a standard home charging socket too.
