Honda V4 Concept 2009

Three decades ago, Honda chose to develop a motorcycle with a V4 four-stroke engine to mark its historic return to Grand Prix competition and since then, V4 has played a key role within the Honda motorcycle model range both on and off track. 2009 marks 30 years since Honda debuted the NR500 – an innovative and unique machine which featured a V4 engine configuration with pioneering oval pistons, allowing the engine to reach incredible revs. In the 30 years since the NR500, the V4 configuration has been utilised in some of the finest road and race machines that Honda has produced.

Three decades ago, Honda chose to develop a motorcycle with a V4 four-stroke engine to mark its historic return to Grand Prix competition and since then, V4 has played a key role within the Honda motorcycle model range both on and off track. 2009 marks 30 years since Honda debuted the NR500 – an innovative and unique machine which featured a V4 engine configuration with pioneering oval pistons, allowing the engine to reach incredible revs. In the 30 years since the NR500, the V4 configuration has been utilised in some of the finest road and race machines that Honda has produced.

On track following the NR500 came the RS1000RW in 1982 � running conventional (round) pistons and fondly known as the water whale; the NR750 in 1987; VFR750R in 1987 � or the iconic RC30 as it is better known; RVF � the legendary RC45 in 1994 and then, the pinnacle of Honda�s V4 technology – the 2008 MotoGP RC212V.

Road followed race with a similarly impressive line-up of mass-market V4 Honda motorcycles, from the original VF750S/F, through to the VF400, VF1000R/F, VF500, VFR400, the legendary VFR750 in 1986, the NR 750cc road bike and finally the ultimate sports-tourer � the VFR800.

The CBF125 is the latest addition to the Honda Motorcycle family and combines the best features of Honda�s 125cc and naked models from over 60 years, to provide the ultimate in small motorcycle style and performance.

At its heart is an air-cooled, fuel-injected, five-speed engine that delivers strong power and torque despite its small capacity. Meanwhile the chassis is capable of easy manoeuvring courtesy of its light and responsive handling allied to a powerful single disc brake at the front. Comfortable and practical, the CBF125 is at ease with solo or two-up riding due to its compliant suspension front and rear.

The bodywork design continues the theme of the small bike with a big personality, with attractive half-faired styling, complete with an effective tinted screen. Two-up the CBF125 is as accomplished as larger machines courtesy of its generous rear seat, comfortable pillion peg arrangement and grab-rail. Meanwhile for the rider, there�s a convenient electric starter, while the control panel is simple and easy to read and features a large speedometer, indicator lights and a fuel gauge.

Fuel efficiency and convenience are cornerstones of Honda�s small capacity machines and the CBF125 is no exception. With both time and fuel costs at a premium, the fuel-injected CBF125 delivers over 370 miles (600km) from one 13-litre tank*, with emissions well below EURO-3 standards � good for your pocket and the environment.

From first-timer to old-timer on two-wheels, the all-new CBF125 provides convenience and freedom for urban travel and is a fitting replacement for the much-loved CG125, which debuted over 30 years ago in 1976.

The CBF125�s DNA combines everything that Honda�s founder, Soichiro Honda, instilled into his first motorcycles � affordable, reliable, safe, good quality and a joy to own and use. The CBF125 – C heap to keep. B uilt to last.

F un to run!

Vehicle to Vehicle Communication

Working together with other vehicle manufacturers, Honda is entering a new era of road safety and efficiency where inter-vehicle communication systems share vital information.

This work has resulted in the Vehicle to Vehicle Communication system, which utilises wireless LAN technology to link vehicles within a defined radio range and establish an ad-hoc network. Each car or motorcycle can also send information to vehicles farther afield. The system continuously monitors the position, speed, distance and direction of surrounding road users, even in conditions of darkness and poor visibility.

Data on the location of cars and bikes, information on accidents, obstructions or congestion is centralised and then sent to drivers and motorcyclists to warn them of traffic conditions ahead or possible dangers.

Motorcycle riders can view information on a display, and receive safety warnings through advanced interfaces such as an in-helmet audio system. Drivers can view information and receive warnings, for example, on their navigation system display. Honda has been a member of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium since 2005 – part of Honda�s commitment to making the world a safer place for everyone and enhancing the joy of mobility.

This will result in a new era of road safety and efficiency, where vehicle communication systems will share vital information to help lower the number of casualties on the roads. This follows Honda�s lead in a number of safety initiatives over the last 60 years, including the use of more efficient disc brakes on the CB750 of 1969, Combined Braking Systems on machines such as the CBR1000F and CBR1100XX Super Blackbird in the 1990s, the first ever motorcycle airbag system on Honda�s flag-ship GL1800 Gold Wing, through to the latest developments in advanced braking with the specifically-for-sports-bikes designed Combined ABS, available as an option on the 2009 CBR1000RR Fireblade and CBR600RR .

Further Honda Models On Display at The Cologne Motorcycle Show

Following previous announcements regarding Honda�s world-first development of an advanced braking system for sports bikes, the 2009 CBR1000RR Fireblade and CBR600RR models featuring the Electronically Controlled Combined ABS system will be on display at the Intermot show.

The all-new for 2009 fuel injected CRF450R off-road machine – which, following it�s first media test ride launch last month has received high praise and acclaim – will also feature on the Honda stand, as will the CRF250R in its new for 2009 stunning black colour scheme .

Once more reflecting Honda�s strong history in both road and race, the CB1100R Concept Model will be on display, boasting thoroughly modern machinery with the classic looks of an endurance racer from the early 1980s. The air-cooled motor is placed in a steel-tube frame, married to modern inverted forks and radial brakes. Twin-shock absorbers may look retro but they too benefit from almost 30 years of advances in suspension technology.

The braced aluminium swingarm gives it that endurance racer look, while the gold wheels and winning red and white paint scheme is unmistakably Honda.

The EV06 is a fusion of both sportsbike and cruiser in a dazzling concept machine and will sit amongst the Honda display at Intermot. Powered by the large-displacement flat-six cylinder engine from the Gold Wing, the motor proudly sits on show in its minimalist chassis and bodywork. The aggressive design is completed by the slim fuel-tank and seat-unit and single-sided swingarm.
