Honda Unveils 2017 Models at EICMA

Thursday,10 Nov 2016

If you missed the Honda EICMA unveil, don'r worry - we've got a round up of the big news coming out of Milan right here.

CBR1000RR Fireblade
The CBR1000RR Fireblade (pictured above) joins the upgraded SP and new SP2 versions to complete a trio of Fireblades that mark 25 years since the celebrated machine re-wrote the rules of the Super Sport segment. Its relentless focus on handling and agility under the mantra of ‘Total Control’ continues, with 90% of main components revised for a 16kg weight reduction to a class-leading 195kg. Coupled with an 8kW top end power boost, it improves the new Fireblade’s power to weight ratio by 14%, to a level hitherto unseen in its history.

Innovative X-ADV combines the spirit of adventure with all-round performance, premium specifications, practicality and comfort for urban commuting and weekend escapes. It mixes rugged SUV style, off-road appeal and premium specifications, thanks to a tough chassis, long travel suspension, four-piston radial-mount brakes and a torque-laden 745cc twin-cylinder engine driving through Dual Clutch Transmission.

CB650F & CBR650F
CB650F naked roadster and CBR650F (above) super sport machine get aggressive new styling, increased power and a wide range of performance upgrades through new intake and exhausts increase top end power by 3 kilowatts, with shorter gear ratios highlighting the increased performance through the mid-range.

CRF250 Rally
The CRF250 Rally becomes the latest member of Honda’s growing CRF family. It offers even more off-road performance, with a 10.1 litre fuel tank, big front brake disk, long travel suspension and high ground clearance.

125 Scooters
Best-selling SH125, Forza 125 and Vision 110 scooters receive a range of improvements to styling, practicality and comfort.

Honda also unveiled 2 new concept models: the CB1100TR CONCEPT and AFRICA TWIN ENDURO SPORTS CONCEPT

The CB1100 TR concept was created to share the emotion and excitement of USA flat track culture.

Honda’s Rome-based R&D designers have imagined the CB1100 TR 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 CB1100 TR to honour the memory of Honda’s beloved MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli, who passed away 5 years ago.

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.

Lings has a team over at the EICMA this weekend so you can forward to some first hand impressions of the latest machines unveiled by Honda and the rest of the Lings Motorcycle family - Triumph and Husqvarna - on their return!
