Honda Concept CB, Honda Wander Walker, Honda Wander Stand – 2015 Tokyo Live
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
The Honda Concept CB motorcycle and two all-new Wander concepts have premiered at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show.
Honda Concept CB
The Concept CB is the improved version of the Honda CB1100 classic-styled motorcycle, which is likely to enter production as the next generation CB1100. The revisions include an LED headlamp, a redesigned fuel tank, a revamped seat, a refurbished air box, and a new, two-chamber exhaust replacing the existing three-chamber unit.
The 1,140 cc inline four-cylinder air- and oil-cooled engine is expected to produce the same output of 89.7 PS (66 KW) at 7,500 rpm and 93 Nm at 5,0000 rpm. The 5-speed gearbox is also expected to remain unchanged.
Honda Wander Walker Concept
The idea behind this concept was to make an “urban micro-mover for one” that encourages one to “step outdoors anytime, anywhere”. Honda touts this machine as a convenient and safe way to access the metropolitan infrastructure. The vehicle’s name is put together from their meanings – “Wander” (freely) and “Walker” (the pedestrian).
Honda Wander Stand Concept
Derived from “Wander” (freely, stroll) and “Stand” (to ride), the concept is described as a next generation mobility solution that features autonomous driving technologies like the Honda Omni Traction Drive System. Honda says that the Wander Stand provides a secure, relaxed and a joyful mobility.
