Sometimes OEMs just like to show off how cool they are, and this year, Honda featured the work of its R&D facility in Rome. The featured project was this tasty-looking CB4 ‘Interceptor’ Concept.

Gorgeous, right? My favorite concept for a long time.

It builds on other CB4 concepts from prior shows like the CB4 and CBsix50. Honda says it “adds an evocative ‘Sport Endurance’ tone to the original design language of the CB4 Concept, creating a new perspective…” An interesting touch is a fan converts the motorcycle’s kinetic energy to electricity that powers a tank-mounted touchscreen for navigation, calls or maybe ordering skate shoes and beard oil on Amazon.

Unlike some concepts, this is one that looks like a possible product, and indeed there are rumors of the other CB4 concept moving toward production. I love the classic endurance-racer look, so let’s hope this will someday be in the Honda lineup.
