Honda Neo Sports Cafe = 2018-2019 Motorcycle for Production or just a Concept?
Honda isn’t playing this year when it comes to building hype for some of their All-New 2018-2019 Motorcycles and bikes that will be completely overhauled for next year too! First up we had the leaked 2018 GoldWing DCT / F6B DCT pictures that give us a sneak peek at just a small tidbit of what Honda plans to unveil at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show kicking off on October 24th, 2017. Now, Honda has just released a teaser video showing off what they are calling the “Neo Sports Cafe”. This isn’t the first time Honda has used that Neo nameplate on a model before whether it be a concept motorcycle or production bike too; example: VTX800N Neo Retro, EV-neo, Dream Neo, NEOWING and I might be missing a couple more as I’m going off memory. They did an extremely good job at hiding key details that really give us any insight as to what this new bike for 2018-2019 may be but there’s some things that you can see that shed some light on what to possibly expect. The glimpse they give us of the engine shows that it is indeed a four-cylinder. Could we not only be getting an all-new 2018 CB1000R that’s packed with all of the goodies from the newly changed-up 2017 CBR1000RR but also some other model variations built from that engine platform to carry on with more of that old-school styling like the also newly changed-up 2017 CB1100EX / 2017 CB1100 RS but lean more towards a cafe racer “style” motorcycle? When is the release date for the Neo Sports Cafe? Honda will be unveiling it at one of the biggest motorcycle shows of the year, the 2017 EICMA show in Milan which kicks off on November 6th, 2017.
Update October 18, 2017: Honda just uploaded a new teaser video of the Neo Sports Cafe… (below)
Now the big question… Will the Neo Sports Cafe just be a concept motorcycle for Honda to show off or will it actually make its way to production?
