According to Honda the V4 Concept Model represents “the new beginning” for the brand’s production motorcycles.
Conceived around the trademark 4-cylinder V-engine, the V4 Concept Model “expresses functional beauty as well as a more sensual image to appeal more to the emotions of people.”
Among the concepts behind the V4 Concept model are an increased focus on emotional and sensual performance and on the human-fitting match of rider and machine.
For the Intermot Cologne event, Honda chose “The New Beginning” as its exhibition theme, based on the fact that this year th e brand celebrates its 60th anniversary and next year the 50th anniversary of its participation in road racing, as well as the 30th anniversary of racing with an innovative 4-cylinder V-engine with oval pistons.
For Intermot, Honda collected and exhibited successive V4 race machines as well as mass-market motorcycle products, enabling visitors to review the lineage of 30 years of V4 engine technologies.
