Honda has just pulled the covers off a radical new concept motorcycle at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany.
Honda is obviously feverishly working on a new V4 engine and that will soon show up in a production bike. Rumor has it that the Japanese company is taking another look at oval pistons, which would allow for more valves and larger combustion chambers.
Studying the lines a bit, we can tell that this wouldn't likely be a race bike, but more likely a new street-going model.
We also see hubless wheels, which would be an extremely far-out bit of tech if they were to make it into production. Is that possible? According to Honda, yes.
This design is a "new beginning" for the company and the direction that it's headed, and that sounds awfully exciting.
