MILAN, ITALY – November 8, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –
- Two concept models developed by Honda R&D in Rome offer new ‘takes’ on CB1100 and CRF1000L Africa Twin
The CB1100TR concept was created to share the emotion and excitement of USA flat track culture.
Honda’s Rome-based R&D designers have imagined the CB1100TR as the ‘King of Urban Flat Track Circuits’, as a counterpoint to the off-road oval circuit look of the traditional flat tracker. While it exudes a pure racing spirit, its design has more of the ‘street’ orientation favoured by European customers.
The number 58 is used on the CB1100TR to honour the memory of Honda’s beloved MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli, who passed away 5 years ago.
AFRICA TWIN ENDURO SPORTS CONCEPT
The Africa Twin Enduro Sports concept has been created to expand the Africa Twin family and capture the imagination of customers dreaming of new possibilities for this “Go Anywhere” adventure machine.
As such, with the Enduro Sports version, Honda’s R&D designers have pushed the concept of the CRF1000L Africa Twin to new limits, with a vision for even better off-road ability. The base model has been embellished with several lighter weight chassis parts, derived from Honda’s single-cylinder racing CRF models. The overall look and feel is one of lightness with a sporty attitude.
The Enduro Sports concept is designed to be ‘Queen of the Off-Road’, like no other multi-cylinder machine.
