The MotoGP-powered Project 2&4 Concept offers the freedom of a motorcycle and the maneuverability of a car, all packed in three meters of length and 400 kg of weight.


The main purpose of the vehicle is to offer the driver an immersive, thrilling driving experience.

The body design and engine position has been inspired by the Honda RA272 of 1965. The structure reveals the core frame and functional parts of the car, similarly to a sports bike.

Overall length is just 3,040 mm, width 1,820 mm and height 995 mm and the overall weight is just 405 kg, which along with the low center of gravity contributes to a high responsiveness and maximizes the performance enabled by the mid-mounted engine.

The exhilarating feeling created from the open cockpit is significantly enhanced by the driver’s seat, uniquely suspended just above the road.

The Honda Project 2&4 is the winning entry from the company’s ‘Global Design Project’, a challenge which saw the participation of over 80 designers and creators from the company’s design studios.

The objective of this annual contest is to challenge team and project members to share one goal and achieve high targets. In particular, the Concept was conceived by Honda’s motorcycle design studio in Asaka and designed in collaboration with the automobile design studio in Wako.
