Honda Motorcycles Europe has released a second teaser of its upcoming motorcycle, the Honda Neo Sports Cafe.
The company is developing the bike under ‘Project N.S.C’. It will make its global debut on November 6th, a day before the 2017 EICMA held from November 7 to 12 in Milan, Italy. In the second teaser, the profile of the motorcycle is clearer and reveals more details of the bodywork like the tank extensions and fuel injector covers. The parts feature brushed metal finish. The design of the muscular tank and the tank cowl is reminiscent of the Honda CB150R ExMotion. A sleek instrument cluster sits on top of the round LED headlamp. The indicators and the tail light are LED as well.
The engine features silver accents. The stubby stepped seat complement the meaty rear tyre. The rear indicators and licence plate holder are integrated into the tyre hugger. The stubby upswept exhaust features twin slash-cut exits. A single-sided swingarm holds the meaty rear tyre which looks like a 180-section unit. It is likely that the upcoming motorcycle will borrow the 999cc in-line four engine from the Honda CBR 1000RR Fireblade. The powerplant in the Fireblade makes 191.7 PS at 13,000 rpm and 114 Nm of torque at 11,000 rpm. Expect the engine to be more mellow in the Neo Sports Cafe.
For suspension, the Honda Neo Sports Cafe comes with upside down front fork, and a rear monoshock. Brakes include twin discs at the front with radial callipers and a single disc at the rear. Expect more details of the upcoming motorcycle at the show.
