In addition, a variety of innovative powerplants that combine superior driving pleasure with advanced environmental technology, and a selection of new Honda safety technologies will be presented.

New Odyssey/ASM Stage

The spacious and comfortable new Odyssey redefines the minivan. An innovative low-floor platform provides a low center of gravity for improved handling and a low roofline. Sharing the stage with the new Odyssey will be the concept vehicle ASM, an 8-seat minivan offering both advanced technology and luxury.

Concept Vehicle Stage

Honda will present its ideas for the future in a lineup of intriguing concept vehicles: the HSC which offers the driving pleasure of a sports car in a package that anyone can handle; the IMAS, a lightweight aerodynamic hybrid sports car; and KIWAMI, which matches Honda’s clean-running fuel cell technology with the Japanese aesthetic of beauty in a premium next-generation sedan.

Advanced Technology Stage

In addition, some of the latest developments in Honda’s pre-crash safety and other safety technologies will be featured.

Further, Honda’s ongoing work in the area of Welfare Vehicles will be represented by displays of the passenger lift seat-equipped Odyssey Almas and Life Almas as well as the Monpal 4-wheel electric wheelchair, which can be driven with an easy-to-operate lever.

Motorcycle Display: 51 Vehicles, 40 Models

Conveying a strong and compelling presence on the main stage will be the concept model Griffon, which combines the sportiness of a motorcycle with the convenience of a scooter; the soon-to-be-released CBR1000RR and CB750; and the overseas exhibition model Valkyrie Rune.

The Center Stage will feature the PS250, a concept model which represents the 5th model to be developed by the N Project and its team of young engineers at the Asaka RD Center.

As an example of Honda’s environmental technology, the Dio Z4 FI, which is to be released in the near future, highlights Honda’s newly developed PGM-FI (programmed fuel injection) system for 4-stroke 50cc engines.
