Honda motorcycles has just revealed the models they will be showing at the 32nd Osaka and 43rd Tokyo motorcycle shows, ahead of the openings on March 19 and March 25, respectively. A total of 21 models, both concepts and the current range, will be exhibited, displaying Honda’s take on the motorcycle lifestyle.

Concept motorcycles on display include the world premiere of the Concept CB Type II, City Adventure Concept and Africa Twin Adventure Sports Concept. The CB models make this a distinctly retro display from Honda, which seems to be banking on its tried-and-tested shapes and model names, The styling of the CB harks back to the early 80s in design, such as the CB1100F from 1982.

Other models on display are the CB1300 Super Bol D’or E Package Special Edition, the CB400 Super Bol D’or ABS Special Edition and the CB1100 and CB1100 EX, which are planned to make it into production. A special concept on the Honda stand will be the CRF250 Rally prototype.

Several production models will also be displayed, such as the Grom (MSX125F) and CRF1000L Africa Twin. This year’s shows also promise to hold several new concepts in terms of electric motorcycles, as emissions and carbon footprints become more prevalent in daily life.
