HONDA MOTOR Co., Ltd. plans to show two concept and 16 new production motorcycles at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show taking place at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, from Oct. 24 to Nov. 4.

The motorcycles on display range from large-displacement sportbikes to compact commuter models powered by electricity. Units to be featured include the EVE-neo and CB1100 Customize concept bikes, as well as the Shadow Phantom 750, CB1100, CB1300 Super Four, CB1300 Super Touring, CB1300 Super Bol D'Or, CB400 Super Bol D'Or, CB400 Super Four, VT1300CX, VT1300CS, VT1300CR, VFR1200F, VFR1200F Dual Clutch Transmission, VTR, Forza, Faze and PCX production bikes.

Honda says the CB1100 explores the potential of the air-cooled, 4-cylinder engine while building upon the aesthetic appeal and riding taste of the generations of CBs; the VFR1200F sport touring bike emphasizes advanced technology and styling and comes with the world's first dual clutch transmission for large-displacement sportbikes; and the PCX and EVE-neo address environmental concerns, with the PCX scooter featuring an idle stop function and the EVE-neo scooter being completely electric-powered.
