2015 EICMA: Honda Integra

Like the NC750S, the Integra scooter is another Euro-only model from Honda not coming stateside for 2016. Displacing 745cc from its liquid-cooled DOHC parallel-Twin, the Integra is the largest displacement scooter in Honda’s line-up. Comparatively, the Silver Wing, last imported to the U.S. in 2013 was a 582cc Twin. If it were our choice, however, we’d preferably see Honda’s City Adventure concept scooter be imported here, as it looks to be a pretty badass scoot.

Anyway, here are the updates to the Integra scooter we don’t get. New LED lighting, new Showa Dual Bending Valves front forks and LCD instruments with personalised colour options; two Special Edition paint options use new metallic finish. The Dual Clutch Transmission receives 3-level S mode, plus further software upgrades in both MT and AT riding modes. The 750cc parallel-Twin gains EURO4 compliance and a revised exhaust muffler adds a deeper tone.

    Not sure what makes this a scooter as it looks like you still need to fling a leg over it. It doesn't have the 'step-through' ability which makes my 200cc scooter so useable around town (along with the town speed performance sweet spot, sit-up and beg riding position and nippiness). Surely having a fistful of those, in addition to hiding the engine, is required to qualify as a scooter.

      Possibly. I guess Honda is not alone in this. Bergman is pretty big for a scooter and Gilera - and possibly others - have an 800cc monster. When I think about it, its all good. No need to slavishly comply with genre definitions. The choice available to the motorbicyclist nowadays is amazing. I'm only surprised more people don't get to wave the two-wheel magic wand and make traffic jams melt away, like a bad dream.

    This thing would run circles around the HD street, and any HD for that . I would buy one if they imported it.
