The outline matches a previously spied commuter motorcycle.
At at the Honda 'Revfest' yesterday, apart from showcasing four new products (CBR250R, CBR150R, Livo and CB Hornet 160) and launching the CBR650F, HMSI also teased the silhouette of a mystery motorcycle. All that was seen momentarily on the big screen was the outline of the bike, that said 'Coming soon'.
Honda did not provide details of the yet-unnamed bike in its press release. It simply noted that the 'mystery-product' rounds up Honda's promise of introducing 15 two-wheelers in 2015.
This bike is reported by the web to be a 125 cc commuter that has been caught testing in production-ready guise several times, and is likely to be launched in the festive season. The barely-visible image did show semblance to the motorcycle that has been captured in previous spyshots.
The bike will probably be the long-term successor or an in-house alternative to the Honda CB Shine commuter, with identical specifications. That means a single-cylinder, 125 cc, air-cooled engine with HET technology generating around 10 bhp and 10 Nm of torque, would power it. Since mileage plays a crucial role in commuter motorcycles, the fuel efficiency could rise from the present 65 km/l to over 70 km/l.
