Honda is in the process to launch Yamaha V-Max′s competitor. According to our friend from Spanish Solomoto that the bike will be built based off Honda EVO 6 concept which was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007.
Power source for Honda′s new bike will be taken from the Goldwing’s 1800cc engine. This engine is less powerful than V-Max′s, 150hp compared to almost 200ps from V-Max′s 1679cc engine.
The new bike based off Honda EVO 6 concpet could be an offering from Honda President Takeo Fukui before his retirement and replaced by Takanobu Ito at the end of this month. This rumor is so hot because at the same time Honda will unveiled its new factory in Kumamoto where Goldwing touring motorcycle produced.
The rumor also hopes that Honda will show its production version of the Honda EVO 6 concept at this year’s EICMA in Milan.
