The world’s first V4 Adventure Tourer motorcycle concept from Honda

Ok, this sets me a new goal for the next 2 years (provided the bike will go into production. I really have to get one of these:

Sharing the phenomenal V4 engine and the revolutionary Dual Clutch Transimission with the VFR1200F, the V4 Crosstourer Concept will deliver all the fun and excitement of a road sports bike; but with the comfortable upright riding position and manoeuvrability of an adventure machine.

The VFR1200F was the first model to utilize the new iconic V4 engine that signified the beginning of the new era in Honda’s engine line-up. The V4 Crosstourer Concept will utilise the same engine as the Road Sport category VFR to bring the benefits of this world-beating engine to a new type of customer. This will be the first time an Adventure Tourer bike has been fitted with a compact and powerful four cylinder V-engine unit.

The riding experience will be further enhanced with the V4 Crosstourer Concept being developed with the revolutionary Dual Clutch Transmission that gives seamless gear changes for a sport riding feel. The new bike is the second Honda to be fitted with this innovative transmission system after the VFR1200F and it is the first time this award-winning technology has been seen in this category.

American Honda Announces More Early-Release 2011 Models

May 12 2010

American Honda Motor Company’s Powersports Division announced today the release of two additional new models for the 2011 model year. This pair of scooters includes the new Honda PCX™ and the always popular Ruckus®.

“We’ve enjoyed tremendous success with our line of scooters,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino, “and now along with the 2011 Ruckus we’re introducing the brand-new PCX, a very stylish 125cc scooter that adds even more depth to Honda’s scooter line.”

Additional information will be released regarding other new 2011 models in months to come. More detailed information and images of Honda’s model line can be found on powersports.honda.com or see your local Honda powersports dealer.

• Introducing the all-new Honda PCX: A fun, stylish ride that’s also economical to operate

Meet the 2011 PCX, a stylish and decidedly sporty new mid-sized scooter that really delivers on routine errands, short commutes and even enjoyable little getaways. Its modern good looks combine with easy handling to create a practical yet fun riding companion. Thanks to its strong-running 125cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected four-stroke engine and a capable chassis, the PCX serves well for getting around town and even for short backroad weekend adventures. An electric starter and Honda’s easy-to-use V-Matic automatic transmission make this new scooter a snap to operate. With comfortable seating to accommodate the rider and passenger, plus a surprisingly large under-seat storage area that’s big enough to swallow a full-face helmet and more, the PCX serves as an accommodating package that rolls economical transportation and a fun-filled ride all into one. Available in Pearl White and Candy Red. Price: TBD

• A machine that’s too cool to know it’s a scooter: Honda Ruckus

Here’s a bare-bones example of two-wheeled transportation that’s way too cool to call itself a scooter. Fully equipped to battle urban traffic with a thrifty liquid-cooled 49cc engine, an electric starter and Honda’s easy-to-use V-Matic automatic transmission, this welterweight is ready to raise a Ruckus—the perfect name for a handy and tough in-town runabout that packs plenty of attitude. Available in Orange/Black and Black. Price: TBD
