embodying the concept of creative craftsmanship, honda ‘project 2and4’ celebrates the car maker’s position as a leading engine manufacturer. its power unit, developed for motoGP motorcycle racing series and specially tuned for the public road, is a 999 cc V4 unit and conforms to a guiding philosophy that inspires innovation and originality. the body design and engine position reveal the core frame and functional parts of the car. a resulting weight of 405 kg maximizes the impact of the power of the mid mounted engine which, together with the low center of gravity, ensures a high level of responsiveness.

the feeling created from the open cockpit is significantly enhanced by the driver’s seat, uniquely suspended just above the road. the floating seat design in the honda ‘project 2and4’, places the driver as close to the action as possible, evoking the freedom of a bike with extreme performance and unique engineering.
