honda previews the neo sports café concept motorcycle ahead of EICMA 2017

honda unwraps its retro-styled ‘neo sports café’ concept, its most recent bike that echoes the japanese-automaker’s ‘CB1000R’ motorcycle and a concept sportbike it first debuted during tokyo motor show 2015. the concept will make its world debut next month at the EICMA 2017 show in milan.

honda’s ‘neo sports café’ concept is dressed in a metallic red finish, features a round LED headlamp and a water-cooled, fuel-injected inline four-cylinder engine. its clean lines, minimalist aestheticm, and attractive colorway are certainly pleasing. the japanese-automaker has yet to reveal significant details about this concept, other than it has described it as a ‘naked sport model that combines the fun and beauty of a sport bike with a new-generation motorcycle package‘. that aside, we certainly hope that the manufacturer eventually allows the ‘neo sports café’ concept to enter the production phase.


  • Nice, clean little shape …but, I can’t get past the ‘no rear fender’ look. Maybe it looks better with a rider.
