Honda’s theme at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show? “What makes people feel good?” Well, now that you ask, an electric superbike styled like a ‘70s GP racer would be a good start. Maybe you could follow it up with a 21st century riff on the Motocompo? Awesome, thanks, we’re good now.
The show isn’t till December, so these concepts are just being unveiled with a couple pics and minimal info to entice visitors to come. And entice they do. Here’s details from Honda:
“A compact EV commuter which offers the casual and convenient mobility of a two-wheeler, but also strives to be useful even when it is not being ridden. This model can be loaded in the MICRO COMMUTER CONCEPT, with the battery that drives this commuter detachable and designed to be used as a power source in everyday life.”
It’s designed to fit in this car.
Here’s an original Motocompo, just for reference. You can read all about the tiny scoot designed to fit in a car here.
“A quiet and comfortable next-generation commuter developed by installing an EV system on Honda’s unique three-wheeled scooter. In addition to personal use, this vehicle can be utilized for business use such as a delivery service by adopting a rear trunk which can be built-in.”
“An EV version of a super sports bike that pursues the joy of riding. A powerful and smooth ride unique to an EV model is achieved with the 250cc-class compact body.”
We’d just like to add, that this is possibly the hottest sportsbike design we’ve ever seen. Don’t care if it comes with an EV powertrain, a 600 inline-four or a 1,200cc V4, just give us a modern performance motorcycle that looks this timeless. Please.
