Honda CB4X Concept

Honda CB4X Concept Blends Attributes of 3 Bikes Into 1

Honda’s R&D team in Italy has done it again. For the fifth consecutive year, the Italian design outpost is debuting a new concept motorcycle in the ‘Design Studio’ area of the company’s EICMA stand: the bold Honda CB4X concept.

The experimental machine – developed under the theme of ‘fun seven days a week’ – blends elements of Sport and Touring with a healthy dash of Crossover. It’s a design from the imaginative pen of Valerio Aiello, and his team of young designers, and is born from the desire to explore – and push – existing boundaries.

The CB4X concept features dynamic yet compact lines, engineered to enhance the contrasting personality of a motorcycle that’s born to use daily on urban routes, but with which a rider can have fun on weekends carving mountain bends or devouring long journeys.

Riding above the 17-inch front wheel, the concept bike’s headlight is set like a diamond, injecting aggressive sophistication alongside the daytime running lights. The fuel tank hunches forward, while the screen is fully adjustable and integrates into the fairing. An aluminum subframe underpins the short, sharp tail.

Powered by a classic inline four-cylinder powerplant – the essential signature of the Honda Wing – the Honda CB4X concept is an idea dedicated to those riders who live for sports riding but don’t want to give up the possibility of relaxing, two-up travel experiences.
