The Honda CB1100TR concept, the most stunningly good looking motorcycle shown at the EICMA this year!
Honda recently unveiled the very cool CB1100TR concept at the EICMA, in Milan. The bike is inspired by American flat track racing and was designed by Honda engineers based in Rome. There's also a reference to MotoGP here - the number 58 on the bike is in the late Marco Simoncelli's honour, who passed away five years ago during a racing accident at Sepang, during the Malaysian GP. The CB1100TR is powered by an 1100cc inline-four and is fitted with a bunch of top-spec components - Ohlins fork and shock, Brembo brakes, Marchesini 17-inch forged alloy wheels (shod with Pirelli racing slicks) and Termignoni exhaust. The red, white and blue paintjob is just stunning.
The other concept bike that Honda unveiled at EICMA is the Africa Twin Enduro Sports, which is based on a CRF1000L Africa Twin, but with enhanched off-road capabilities. The base model has been fitted with various lighter weight chassis parts from Honda’s single-cylinder CRF racebikes, full-on off-road tyres, and fully adjustable front and rear suspension. For off-road use, this has to be the most intense, hard-core motorcycle we've ever seen and it looks terrific too.
