Stunning new Honda Evo6, CB1100R revealed!

This is the Evo6, powered by the Goldwing's 1800cc, six-cylinder engine. Yes!

Perhaps the best retro-styled cafe racer ever - the Honda CB1100R!

Honda are ready for the 40th Tokyo Motor Show, which will be held in Japan from the 27th of October till the 11th of November 2007. And right now, they're giving you a sneak preview of what you can perhaps expect from Honda in 2008! The prototypes you see above - the Evo6, the CB1100F and the CB1100R - stand a good chance of going into production next year.

The Evo 6 is powered by the Honda Goldwing's 1800cc, six-cylinder engine and is likely to be a powerful beast. If the bike is actually produced next year, we suppose that six-cylinder engine will be in a much higher state of tune than it is in the Goldwing - the Evo6 should have no trouble taking on the Suzuki B-King, or even the Suzuki Stratosphere and the Yamaha V-Max, both of which are expected to come out in 2009.

Both the other two bikes are powered by 1100cc inline-fours and while the CB1100F seems to be a modern interpretation of a traditional 1980s UJM, it's the CB1100R which looks totally, radically hot! It has that 1980s, Freddie Spencer era Japanese cafe racer cool and we so love this bike. It's just so awesome!
