Honda has unveiled a new ‘Neo Sports Café’ concept bike at the Paris Motor Show, with the latest design study following on from an identically named show bike that was revealed by the Japanese brand almost exactly one year ago.
The latter made its way into production earlier in 2018 as the CB1000R naked motorcycle, and the new concept shown in Paris most likely previews the soon-to-be-launched CB650R, which will in turn replace the current CB650F.
Created in Honda’s Rome R&D design centre, the styling language of the latest iteration Neo Sports Café is described as “modern and minimalist”, mixing sports naked and café racer inspirations.
Design details include an ultra-short tail and vertically-stacked dual muffler, while futuristic head and tail-lights, together with detailed machining and new surface treatments, further add to the bike’s modernist look.
The eventual road-going version could be revealed as early as next month – at the EICMA show in Milan most likely.
