Directorul executiv al Pininfarina, una dintre cele mai importante companii de design auto din lume, a murit, joi dimineata, intr-un accident rutier langa Torino, Italia. Andrea Pininfarina, in varsta de 51 de ani, conducea un scuter Vespa si a intrat in coliziune cu o masina in timp ce se indrepta spre centrul de design si cercetare-dezvoltare al companiei sale, in localitatea Cambiano.

Decesul lui Pininfarina a survenit intr-un moment dificil pentru compania controlata in cadrul familiei, din pricina unui amplu proces de restructurare. Anul trecut, perderile inregistrate de companie au ajuns la 114,9 milioane de euro, in crestere, de la numai 21,9 milioane cu un an inainte.

Andrea Pininfarina a ocupat, incepand cu anul 2001, postul de director executiv al companiei care-i poarta numele. De asemenea, el a fost numi si in functia de presedinte al companiei in anul 2006. Tatal sau, Sergio, este presedintele de onoare al companiei, in timp ce fratele sau mai tanar, Paolo, ocupa functia de vice-presedinte. Nu in ultimul rand, sora sa, Lorenza, este membra in boardul de conducere al Pininfarina. Andrea Pininfarina este nepotul fondatorul companiei cu acelasi nume, BAttista "Pinin" Pininfarina.

In data de 10 martie, Andrea Pininfarina a cerut actionarilor sa efectueze o majorare de capital a companiei cu 100 de milioane de euro, pentru acoperirea pierderilor inregistrate. Daca va fi dusa la bun sfarsit, aceasta miscare inseamna ca familia va pierde majoritatea in conducerea companiei. In prezent, familia Pininfarina detine 55% din actiunile companiei.

Putin off-topic:

Honda aduce pe piata o motocicleta electrica in 2010 !


Moto :: Honda aduce pe piata o motocicleta electrica in 2010

Honda va produce o noua motocicleta, electrica, aceasta urmand sa ajunga pe piata la inceputul lui 2010. Takeo Fukui, CEO Honda, considera ca introducerea unei motociclete electrice este o alegere logica, deoarece caracteristicile bateriei sunt ideale pentru drumurile mai scurte, iar motocicletele, in general, nu sunt folosite pentru drumuri lungi.
Fukui este increzator ca acest produs va fi unul de succes pentru Honda, in special in tarile in curs de dezvoltare unde motocicletele sunt un mijloc de transport des folosit.

Nu sunt cunoscute inca date referitoare la autonomie, timpul de incarcare sau performanta. Puteti fi insa siguri ca oamenii satui de Harley-Davidson vor intampina cu bratele deschise aceasta Honda silentioasa.

1 - scuterele in presa romaneasca

2 - scuterele in presa straina,

unde sa postam link-uri/articole cu/despre scutere. ( fiecare din noi citeste macar o revista auto, deci, "ochi" pregatiti sunt )

Daca e voie , sa prezentam si paginile scanate :)

BEST IN ITS CLASS The new gearless Honda Activa :

The Hindu : Metro Plus Delhi / Wheels : Wings of change



Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, which has just exited the geared scooter segment in India, has rolled out its new gearless Activa scooter. The company, though, faces the challenging task of meeting the great expectations that scores of scooter riders expect from the Japanese brand.
The original Activa, launched in June 2001, will go down in Indian two-wheeler history as Honda’s very first two-wheeler on our roads. Cautiously positioned to appeal to our masses, it was a huge success, selling for well over eight years without any major modifications along the way. What’s more, the Activa resuscitated the Indian scooter market and today sells close to 40,000 units every month.
Recognising that the Activa was getting dated and needed replacement, Honda worked on a next-generation model and finally introduced it last month. The new Activa settles in alongside its upmarket sibling, the Aviator. While retaining timeless, classic and safe styling, the new scooter uses repair-friendly sheet metal panels for most of its body. A smart front wheel fender and apron draw on current European trends, looking somewhat similar to those on the Aviator, while a bulbous headlight now is halogen-enabled and sits flanked by a pair of clear lens turn indicators.
Instrumentation is fresh and bold, straightforward to read with a fuel gauge inset as standard fare along with the other basic gauges required by scooter users. While levers, grips, mirrors and switches are of the typical Honda scooter variety, the top-end new Activa model comes with a tamper-proof shutter to safeguard its ignition key slot. A front storage bin is now on offer, in addition to an enhanced, 18-litre underseat storage capacity. The new Honda’s floorboard remains comfortably flat, spacious and wide, tapering backwards into the passenger footrest zone. Sleek flank panels sweep up to meet the new scooter’s broad and stylishly rounded tail section. While rear indicators tower on both sides of the Activa’s red brake warning light, an alloy grab handle sits just above. However, there’s no place to accommodate a spare tyre on this new scooter.
The latest Activa draws power from a larger capacity, 109cc, four-stroke, and force air-cooled Honda engine that has increased in stroke and now makes an extra bhp to lift peak power output to 8bhp at 7500rpm. Maximum torque generated by the new motor is 0.9kgm at 5500rpm, with Honda claiming this new, variator-driven engine offers a 15 per cent increase in fuel economy despite its extra pep.
Fuel efficiency

Better swirl inside the combustion cavity and a refined form for the inlet port help the new Activa improve on fuel efficiency. Similarly, the roller bearings on the rocker arms, lower spring tension on its two valves, as well as a reduction in the cooling fan rotor mass are in the interests of minimal friction, to boost economy.
A throttle position sensor and paper type air-filter element perform their duties within this power plant, and one can expect a refined, smooth power delivery as is experienced on most Honda two-wheelers. Servicing and instant access to the engine bay is facilitated by the incorporation of Honda’s CLIC system that allows tipping backwards of the scooter’s entire rear body.
The new Activa uses a conventional underbone type, tubular steel frame as used by most scooters, and Honda has taken pains to ensure the new Activa retains all the comfort, feel and riding pleasure of the first Activa.
However, the new Activa lacks telescopic forks, alloy rims or the option of a front disc brake as are today offered by some of its recent rivals. Honda would have done well to provide these on such an important new model. Ten-inch steel rims are used on both ends, with linked front suspension deployed at the front and the engine playing swingarm and linking up to its rear suspension. The rear tyre provides a Tuff Up tube that reduces chances of a puncture by as much as 70 per cent.
The new Activa’s seating position stays upright and commuter friendly as on the original scooter. A novel new feature is the option of CBS (Combined Braking System), a mechanically operated technology that helps the scooter stop in relatively short distances and offer safer stability during braking. CBS works with the left lever simultaneously activating both the front and rear brakes via two cables that run out from the lever to both drums. The right (commonly the front brake) lever remains connected to only the front drum as on a conventional braking system, and this is activated as on a normal scooter. How well the system works on the road remains to be experienced by us. This scooter offers the safety of a brake locking clamp on its left brake lever.
The latest Activa will sell in two versions, with six paint choices, including a neat- looking white. The other colours on offer are red, black, metallic purple, metallic silver and metallic grey.
Modern-day Indian politicians would give an arm and a leg to earn the mass appeal of a model as po*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]r as the Activa, and this latest variant clearly looks set to build upon its predecessor’s success.
The novel Combined Braking System, offers stability during braking

Honda to launch 100cc bike for Rs 40k-45k !


New Delhi: Two-wheeler maker Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India will enter the high-volume entry level motorcycle segment with the launch of a 100cc bike by early next year, which is expected to be priced at around Rs 40,000-45,000.
The company, which launched a new variant of its 125cc bike CBF Stunner, aims to have a bigger presence in the Indian motorcycle market with new products.
"The Indian two-wheeler market is predominantly motorcycle oriented, so we have to align ourselves according to the market," Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) President and CEO Shinji Aoyama said.
"We will be launching a completely new 100cc bike by the end of this fiscal. It will be a bit higher priced than the entry level bikes in the market now, but it will not be higher priced than the 125cc bikes," he added.
Aoyama said the new 100cc bike could be priced "around Rs 40,000-Rs 45,000".
He also said the 100cc bike would not 'cannibalise' Hero Honda's products.
"I am not aiming at making big business there (in the 100cc segment). I want to satisfy people who want Honda products at that price," Aoyama said. Currently, the 100cc segment is dominated by Hero Honda, which is a joint venture between Japanese auto major Honda and Munjals-promoted Hero Group.

2010 Honda SH150i Scooter Review!

2010 Honda SH150i Scooter Review - Honda Scooter Review - Motorcycle USA

Posted Image



Although the SH150i is new here in the States, folks over in Europe have been riding it for the last few years. In fact, in Italy, it’s currently the best-selling scooter not just in Honda’s line-up but in the country’s entire scooter segment.

Within the Honda scooter line, the SH150i is slotted in between the interstate cruising capabilities of the Honda Silver Wing and the inner city aptitude of the soon-to-be-released Honda Elite. It’s built for a person looking for a transportation option that can keep pace with other motorized traffic, whether in the sprawled expanse of the suburbs or the concrete jungle of the city.


Posted Image
A 153cc 4-Stroke single-cylinder engine propels the SH150i to right around 65 mph on flat ground.


While it won’t win any drag races against a driver with a lead foot, you might surprise the SUV commander next to you. In fact, unless they’re on their game, the little SH will usually getaway first. It isn’t until around 40 mph that your neighbor in the 4000 pound tank has gathered enough steam to pass.

On level road with this 180-pound pilot, the SH will accelerate to right around 65 mph in roughly 15 seconds without a hint of vibration. Add a steep downgrade and speed increases another 10 mph. In fact, is speed is high enough for it to be operated on the freeway. Even at maximum speed the rear view mirrors deliver a decent buzz-free picture of what’s happening behind you, plus the scooter tracks straight without a hint of instability. Uphill the SH manages to muster a minimum of 60 mph. And unlike other mid-sized scooters we’ve tested, it actually accelerates as you climb up. At speed wind buffeting effects are minimal, however, a $299.95 accessory windscreen is still available for purchase.

Since scooters fitted with an automatic transmission have negligible engine braking, it’s important to have effective brakes and we’re pleased to report that this is just another attribute of the SH. Up front it uses a single 220mm disc which gets clamped by a twin-piston caliper hydraulically actuated with the right hand lever. The rear wheel is controlled via a less reactive drum-style brake featuring Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) in which the rear brake is linked to the front.

What this means is that whenever the left-hand side brake lever is pressed the scooter automatically applies the front brake. Conversely, when the rider squeezes the right-hand brake lever it only initiates the front brake without any linking effect.

Grab the left brake lever (combined rear/front brake effect) by itself and stopping distance isn’t that impressive, but is superior to just using the rear brake on a typical motorcycle. One plus of the system is that even if you panic and tug the lever all the way to the bar (as long as the road is dry) you have almost no chance of locking up either wheel thereby allowing you to maintain forward control.


Posted Image
A 220mm disc is pinched by a twin-piston caliper which is hydraulically operated via a right-hand lever.
Squeeze the front brake lever however, and you’ll observe just how effective it is at slowing you even from top speed. Squeeze both levers together and stopping distances is reduced further thus becoming the preferred method for ensuring quick, safe stops.

Average sized riders will appreciate how much room there is while seated and even my 6-foot tall frame wasn’t cramped at the controls of the SH. Also the distance between the rider and the handlebars is short, which translates into a very relaxed riding position with your elbows resting to the side naturally.

There is also a sensible amount of leg room and some cleverly placed cargo hooks built into the firewall to allow storage of say a grocery bag, or whatever else you might be lugging around. Additional storage for a half-helmet is available underneath the seat accessed by turning the ignition key counter-clockwise. A $268.95 rear trunk Honda accessory adds even more storage capacity.

In spite of weighing over 300 lbs, this scooter it is very easy to lift up and down off its center stand. Due to the way in which a scooter’s powertrain is mounted in the chassis its weight is carried low, which helps make it feel balanced. The SH150i also changes direction predictably with very little rider effort. It also feels narrow allowing you to slice right through city traffic. In fact, through a crowded city street, you’d be hard pressed to find a vehicle that can get through traffic faster than this Honda scoot.

Typically scooter suspension errs on the soft side and the SH150i continues the trend. Both ends of the machine offer over 3-inches of travel and do an admirable job of reducing the effects of rolling over broken pavement or a series of raised pavement markers. Its soft wide seat also helps mitigate effects of a rough road.


Posted Image
One of the best features of the SH150i is the ability to comfortably ride two-up.
Overall fit and finish is on par with its $4499 price tag. All of its switches are placed logically and are simple to mani*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]te without taking your eyes off the road. We also appreciated its easy-to-read dash display which contains a swept analog-style speedometer (that optimistically reads up to 100 mph), a fuel and engine coolant temperature gauge, odometer, trip meter and digital clock. General warning lights for the turn signals and headlight high beam are laid above and it also features a nifty oil-change required light, so you’ll know when it’s time for service.

We’re really impressed with Honda’s new scooter and after spending some time at its controls our biggest question is why it took Honda so long to bring it here to the States. If you’re looking for an easy, affordable scooter that can truly keep up with the Jones, the SH150i is it.

Watch the Motorcycle USA take on the new Honda scooter in the Honda SH150i Review Video.

Honda’s First Factory Chopper Destined for UK !

Honda?s First Factory Chopper Destined for UK

Honda (UK) Motorcycles has announced an exciting and new V-twin custom model – the radical Honda VT1300CX – to the UK for 2010.

For many years the chopper motorcycle has summed-up a particular breed and passion of two-wheeled cool. Many are home-built machines - some made to quite basic specifications. But with the VT1300CX you can have all the presence and pose of a chopper, but with the reassurance of Honda’s enviable style and build quality.

Honda Reveals Two New 2010 Models: the Shadow Phantom and the NT700V !

http://www.motorcycl...First-Look.aspx

Friday September 4, 2009
Posted Image In addition to the Elite, SH150i, and Fury, Honda has announced two more 2010 models: the Shadow Phantom cruiser and the NT700V touring bike. The Shadow Phantom incorporates the same 745cc fuel-injected v-twin found in the Shadow Aero and Shadow Spirit 750, and surrounds it with arguably easier-on-the-eyes, blacked out bodywork that Honda says is "bobber influenced." The Shadow Phantom is priced at $7,999.
Posted Image The NT700V is a bit harder to pigeonhole. Its un-catchy alphanumeric nomenclature follows the trend led by bikes like the Kawasaki ER-6n, and Honda refers to this saddlebag-equipped upright as "the only true lightweight touring bike on the market." Powered by a 680cc v-twin, the standard NT700V comes in red and is priced at $9,999, while the $10,999 ABS-equipped model is only available in Metallic Silver. Both bikes hit dealerships this November.
Honda has also announced new graphics and colors for the 2010 CBR600RR and CBR1000RR sport bikes, with the latter receiving engine tweaks that yield smoother power delivery; no word yet on whether or not these four bikes are the last updates we'll see to Honda's 2010 lineup.

2010 Honda CBR1000RR First Look !

http://www.motorcycl....irst-Look.aspx

Honda’s 2010 CBR1000RR gets a few more tweaks as compared to its little brother the CBR600RR. Although it does get the same BNG (Bold New Graphics) treatment, the Winged Warriors also increased the diameter of the flywheel, adding weight to it for more inertia, presumably for better low-rpm torque and smoother running just off idle. A redesigned license plate assembly makes for quicker removal for those wishing to hit the track, while the muffler cover is now redesigned for improved looks. The new colors include Pearl Orange/Light Metallic Silver and an updated Red/Black on the base model. As for the C-ABS model, it’s only available in Black. This caps the changes for the big-bore CBR, a bike which has now won the Motorcycle-USA Superbike Smackdown two years running. With Aprilia and BMW entering liter-class wars for ‘10 it should be interesting to see if the mighty Honda can stay on top with only a small host of changes. Stay tuned…

2010 Honda Shadow VT750C2B Black Spirit - Available in black only!

http://bikerholic.co....-black-spirit/



American-style custom cruisers have a strong appeal for riders across Europe. As well as a low seat height and easy riding style, they come with a rebellious attitude and a style that sets their owners apart from the crowd. The Honda Custom range comes with extra-low seats, sensational V-twin engines and clean, maintenance-free drive shafts. Honda cruisers are built for laid-back, easy riding. Featuring authentic styling, they are also extremely good value to own and run, inspiring all kinds of riders, from entry-level to seasoned bikers.
In 2007 Honda launched the po*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]*[cuvant urat]r VT750DC Shadow Spirit. Based on the VT750 Shadow, it took similar design cues from classic cruiser tradition. However, the Shadow Spirit took the concept a step further with more traditional street rod styling, a leaner, meaner profile and a riding position that submerged the rider deep down in the bike for a thrilling experience of the engine’s power. A new PGM-FI fuel injection system intensified the ride while improving fuel efficiency and emissions, and a large 17″ front wheel gave it an unmistakable presence on the street.
In 2010 Honda proudly introduces the Black Spirit, an intense variation on the Shadow Spirit theme with authentic bobber styling and a pure, minimalistic spirit. In one basic colour, its bold character comes to the fore, making its beefy performance and easy ownership all the more pleasurable.

Development Concept

Posted Image

The Shadow 750 Black Spirit is based around a low, triangular profile that places the rider in the middle of the ride, and is accentuated with exclusive styling details. Proven technologies ease handling and usability, and deliver a highly involving yet relaxed ride. The fuel injection system is tuned for smooth, responsive control, allowing riders to enjoy the engine’s power. The maintenance-free shaft drive and reliable liquid-cooled engine mean stress-free ownership. Riding the Shadow 750 Black Spirit is a stirring experience, and its aggressive attitude and streetwise confidence create its own authority on the street.
V-twin power
The power at the heart of the Shadow 750 Black Spirit is supplied by the same 750cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine used in the Shadow Spirit. Its delivery is tuned for deep, rumbling pulses of power and torque. Accessibility and dependability are also essential to the Black Spirit experience, and the fuel injection system has been developed for quick throttle response and maximum fuel economy.
Pure attitude
For its design inspiration the Shadow 750 Black Spirit goes back to its custom roots. Its clipped rear fender, triangulated profile, blacked out details and thumping engine acknowledge a heritage that reaches back for decades.
Styling - Smart, clean and sporty


Posted Image

To true custom bike aficionados, style is important and any lapse in attention to detail is unforgivable. The Shadow 750 Black Spirit is a perfectly turned-out celebration of an iconic style and culture. From its bobbed tail to its assertive front wheel, every contour is carefully styled. Its bold, kicked-out forks and raised handlebars provide the point of focus from which it leans back into a long, tapered tank.
The instrument panel is placed on top of the gleaming tank. It features a large, easily readable speedometer dial, a compact assembly of practical gauges and indicator lights and an eye-catching silver-painted cover. The seat is easily the lowest in the 750cc cruiser class and creates a deep riding position that allows an easy reach to the grips and a laid-back cruiser feel.
Colouring Concept
The 2010 Shadow 750 Black Spirit is available in only one colour, a striking Graphite Black which is highlighted by a number of exclusive trims and details. As well as the fenders, tank and seat, the short, semi-drag-style handlebars receive a new black colouring. The tail-light, headlight, air cleaner cover and rear shocks are also black. The centrepiece is a striking, black-painted engine with cast-in fins that give it a traditional air-cooled look. These features present a strong contrast to the luxuriously gleaming silver of the dual muffler, front forks and custom-look rear fender struts. The overall image is sophisticated and clean-cut.
Colours
Graphite Black
Engine
The liquid-cooled 52° V-twin engine powering the Shadow 750 Black Spirit is a time-proven standard of Honda excellence, essentially the same configuration that provides strong, dependable power to all our 750cc V-twin cruisers. Its compact shape allows the frame’s central backbone to be lowered, facilitating the cruiser’s long-and-low profile. The engine features a long-stroke, single-pin crankshaft configuration and optimal mass to enhance the feel of its low rpm torque peak. Efficient combustion and instant power thrusts are provided by SOHC three-valve cylinder heads with dual spark plugs, while close-ratio transmission delivers strong, exhilarating acceleration from anywhere in the engine’s power range. The sensation of strong, direct power delivery to the rear wheel is down to the machine’s enclosed shaft final drive. Requiring only minimal maintenance, the shaft drive operates smoothly and quietly while enhancing the feel of the engine’s power.
Programmed Fuel Injection
Like the Shadow Spirit, the Black Spirit is equipped with a highly developed Honda PGM-FI fuel injection system, featuring an idle air control valve which precisely controls incoming air for smooth idling operation. The system ensures easy starting, instant throttle response and smooth, satisfying thrusts of acceleration. With accurate fuel flow monitoring, efficiency is also optimised, keeping both emissions and fuel consumption low.
Hard-working exhaust system
The impressive chrome-plated dual shotgun exhaust pipes that accentuate the length of the Black Spirit chassis are more than just a visual accent on its street rod styling. They also pump out an exhilarating sound that combines with the throbbing feel of the engine to create an exciting ride sensation.
Each exhaust pipe is fitted with an oxygen sensor that feeds data to the fuel injection system’s ECU and a HECS3 (Honda Evolutional Catalyser System) low emissions system. This strictly regulates exhaust gases while still maintaining the engine’s capable performance and thrilling sound.
Chassis
The engine’s power is contained in a slim, lightweight and rigid double-cradle steel frame that is both responsive and easy to handle. A large-diameter single tube backbone and pressed steel pivot plates combine in a low overall chassis height, allowing for low tank and seat positioning. The seat rails and chopped rear fender are supported by a cast sub-frame. The frame design is an important contributor to the sensational ride quality, transmitting enough primary vibration to maximise enjoyment of the engine’s performance without allowing it to become uncomfortable.
Suspension, wheels and brakes
The extended 41mm front fork and 17″ front wheel create a remarkably responsive and comfortable package. On the left side, the shaft drive is integrated with the swingarm adding to the clean and simple look. The exposed rear shock absorbers are tilted forward, providing progressive damping and a comfortable ride with precise control. A fat 160mm rear tyre emphasises the sporty custom styling as well as adding to comfort. The powerful brakes perform with smooth efficiency. A large-diameter 296mm front disc with a responsive dual-piston caliper is paired with a conventional 180mm leading/trailing drum brake at the rear.
Equipment - Honda Ignition Security System (HISS)
The Shadow 750 Black Spirit is equipped with the Honda Ignition Security System (HISS). This disables the engine at the heart of its digital ignition system, allowing ignition only with one of its two original keys and preventing starting by hot-wiring. An LED indicator on the instrument panel warns off potential thieves.
Optional equipment
Honda Access will offer a full range of customised accessories for the new VT750C2B Black Spirit, complementing its highly developed styling, comfort and versatility.

2010 Honda NT700V Touring First Look !


http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/624/45...irst-Look.aspx


Posted Image

The Honda NT700V is an all-new 2010 light-duty touring model from the Japanese marque.
Honda Motorcycles extends its street bike touring line with the release of the all-new NT700V. A mid-sized V-Twin, Honda pitches the new mount as “a light touring machine that’s fun, easy to ride and ready to carry you to work and play seven days a week.”

A liquid-cooled 52-degree V-Twin powers the new NT700V. The 680cc Twin sports an 81mm bore and 66mm stroke, with 10:1 compression ratio. A single overhead cam operates the four-valve cylinder heads. Like all Honda street bikes, the NT will source Honda’s programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI).

Steering geometry combines a 26-degree rake with 4.5 inches of trail. Wheelbase is 58.1 inches and the NT700V rolls on 17-inch hoops, with a 120/70 tire up front and a 150/70 rear. The reach to the ground is 31.7 inches from the NT’s seat.


Posted Image

Powering the NT700V is a 680cc 52-degree V-Twin.
Honda’s linked combined braking system (CBS) brings the new design to a halt. The three-disc arrangement places dual 296mm rotors in the front, pinched by three-piston calipers, with a single 276mm disc and three-piston caliper in the rear. The braking can be upgraded to Honda’s full ABS system.

The chassis features a front 41mm fork with 4.5 inches of travel and a rear shock with 4.8 inches travel. Only the shock is listed as being adjustable, with a remote preload adjustment nob dialing in settings for the extra lbs a touring bike needs to carry. Honda’s claimed curb weight for the NT700V is 566 lbs for the standard models and 571 lbs for the ABS unit.

Bolstering its motorcycle touring creds, integrated luggage saddlebags come standard on the NT700V. The bags feature a “pass-through” space between both bags for longer items, which sounds interesting and potentially

quite handy. A fairing blocks wind and weather from riders, along with the five-position adjustable windscreen. Ultimate range will depend on observed fuel economy, but the 5.2-gallon fuel tank should yield at least a 200 miles between fillings (an important threshold for any bike with touring aspirations – at least in our book...). Listed accessories will enhance touring abilities and include the pictured top box (left) and other add-ons like heated grips.

Style-wise, the NT700V looks to us like the forbidden love-child of the ST1300 and Kawasaki Versys. Which really would be a Romeo and Juliet romance if it were true…

Anyhow, the NT700V will be available in either Metallic Red or Metallic Silver, with the ABS version only available in Silver. No MSRP is yet listed for either model.

Honda Confirms New VFR1200F and CB1100 !



Honda has confirmed its motorcycle lineup for the upcoming 2009 Tokyo Motorcycle Show, set for October 24 – November 4. Headlining the list is official conformation of a V-4 powered sport-touring motorcycle, the VFR1200F. Also slated to debut at Tokyo is the four-cylinder, retro-styled CB1100.

Honda VFR1200F :

Honda is saving the details for Tokyo, but here’s what it has said about the new VFR. First, Honda confirms it is a “sport-touring bike.” So the mysterious new VFR is not a V-4 superbike as the enigmatic V-4 concept unveiled at last year’s INTERMOT Show hinted. Also confirmed is the VFR1200F will feature Honda’s new Dual Clutch Transmission, the first such design, Honda claims, “for large-displacement sport bikes.”

For more information on the Honda Dual Clutch Transmission check out the explanatory video below.

Honda is still keeping official pics of the new bike under wraps (though intrepid readers will not have trouble finding the spy shots).

The CB1100 takes cues from its UJM CB predecessors, but will the new Honda become a production reality?


Posted Image

For the full details and specs of the new VFR1200F stay tuned for a complete first look report as soon as the information is available. We also have a pretty good hunch (wink) we might be riding the new VFR during an upcoming visit to Japan this October.

Honda CB1100 :

Honda describes the CB1100 concept’s debut at the 2009 Tokyo Show as its “world premier.” However, the design looks quite reminiscent of similar CB-themed concepts shown at previous Tokyo shows. Sourcing retro lines from its UJM CB line, the CB1100 is obviously air/oil cooled with conventional forks, side-mounted rear shocks and dual disc front brakes. Beyond visual hints, there are no other specifics except Honda’s explanation that the new CB1100 “explores the potential of the air-cooled, 4-cylinder engine while building upon the aesthetic appeal and riding taste of the generations of CBs.”

Well, the potential of the CB1100 lined up against its vintage-themed competitors (e.g. Triumph Modern Classics, Ducati SportClassics and rides like the Moto Guzzi V7) seems great. But will it become a production reality? If so, will it head to the States? Will it be a relaxed street bike, or a high-performance standard?

Looks like we’ll have to wait until Oct 24 we’ll have more questions than answers.

2010 Honda Shadow RS First Look !

2010 Honda Shadow RS First Look - Honda Cruiser First Look - Motorcycle USA

The 2010Â Honda Shadow RS increases the Japanese marque's entry-level Shadow line-up to four models. The Shadow RS is the sportiest of the quartet of low-slung beginner bikes, all of which are powered by the same liquid-cooled 745cc V-Twin. Like the new-for-2010 Shadow Phantom, the RS is fuel-injected while the less expensive Aero and Spirit retain their 34mm CV carburetors.

The Shadow RS clearly takes styling cues from the Sportster. It’s reported to have a more-upright riding position, higher pegs and a low seat height which Honda hopes will appeal to more new riders.


With an MSRP of $7799 the Shadow RS is $200 less than the new Shadow Phantom and will be available by March 2010 in either Pearl White or Metallic Grey. Final specifications have not been released at this time.

While the RS is intended to fill the gap for consumers looking for something more than just a cruiser, the $7999 Shadow Phantom is aimed directly at people in the market for a smaller bike with a much more custom look. The Phantom features bobbed fenders, blacked out engine cases, frame, wheels and all around retro-looking appearance.

Other new bikes in the Honda cruiser range (though not yet confirmed for the US) include the VTX1300 motorcycles revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show.
