We saw the 2018 Honda Super Cub. TBH, we are hardly impressed, but this one here, a custom by K-Speed, is a whole new ball game. It made us wish the 2018 Honda Super Cub launched recently in Thailand did actually looked like this. I mean, seriously, Honda should be looking to K-Speed to design their Cubs. Period. I am sure the cafe racer style will appeal to many bike enthusiasts. Anyways, this stunning Super Cub (dubbed Super Power Cub) you see here was the result when Honda roped in Thailand-based K-Speed to create a custom version to mark the launch of the new model. Now, come on, tell me that you guys aren’t even a bit impressed. Continue reading K-Speed’s Custom Super Power Cub Is What 2018 Honda Super Cub Should Be
What you see here is scooter that is not quite a scooter. Underneath the custom body that (almost) completely concealed the innards is Honda’s quirky X-ADV, an “adventure scooter” (but not really quite). Yep. It is in fact a XXL size of the cult-classic from the 1990s, the Honda Cub EZ 90. From Italy custom bike maestro, Deus Milano, with some help from another Milan great, Kaos Design, this upsized “Cub EZ 90” is the homage to the original and yes, it is actually the X-ADV. The result is stunning and with a glance, you are transported back in time… to 1991. Continue reading Honda’s Iconic Cub EZ 90 Got Upsized In This Modern Homage Example
I think the new Honda Civic is shit-ass ugly and if you ask me, I’d stack it up along Apple AirPods in the ugliness department. Sorry, but not sorry. If you are on the same page as me (yay, high-five!), but are like me, totally drawn to its inner beauty, i.e. its fast and furious 2L i-VTEC DI Turbocharged motor that makes the Type R the fastest front-wheel-drive production car in the world, well, here is a piece of very good news for you. You need not to put up with an ugly shit car for the engine because Honda is selling you one. The engine, I mean. Yes. Really. Honda North America has announced at this year’s SEMA the availability of the Civic Type R Crate Motor, designated K20C1. Continue reading Honda Will Now Sell You A 306HP Civic Type R Crate Motor For $6.5K+
Autonomous cart isn’t new, but the one Honda recently showed off, called RoboCas Concept, at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show is worthy of a mention, just for the cuteness alone. Honda refers RoboCas Concept to as “a unique form of electric mobility,” but it really is a smart cart. It looks like vehicle straight out of Pixar animation. It has a cargo space which is customizable as you see fit and oh, yes, it can carry people too. You know, it ain’t tiny as you can see from the images we have here. It can be everything you imagine it to be, ranging from a cargo hauler to mobile DJ console to a curry shop. Yep. That too. In short, it can be a food truck of sort. Continue reading Honda’s Cute Robot Vehicle Is Basically Your Autonomous Food Truck
While I agree the new Honda Civic is sporty-looking by nature, I am not all for the looks. I don’t know. It looks to me like there are just way too many things going on the exterior that makes it looks so… messy, but my perception could change if it has a 2L i-VTEC DI Turbo motor with 306 horsepower and a hefty 295 lb-ft (400 Nm!) of torque like the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R has to offer, which, btw, is happens to be the most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever. Now, you see why the leeway I had for the look that I wasn’t that impressed with? Continue reading 2017 Honda Civic Type R: Track-ready, U.S.A-ready, But Are You Ready?
Apart from the threat from other road users, motorcycle riders have another big concern: keeping the bike from falling over when coming to a rest or in slow traffic. That has been a problem that riders of past and present learned to deal with, but thankfully, it won’t be pass on to the future (or perhaps even near future) – thanks to Honda’s innovative Riding Assist. As of now, technology by the way of gyroscope is one option to keep a two-wheeler, or even single-wheel, vehicle upright without the rider performing circus act, but that, to Honda, is just way too cumbersome and could potentially alter the ride experience. So, instead, the Riding Assist leverages on the company’s robotics technology originally for Honda UNI-CUB self-balancing personal mobility device. Continue reading Honda’s Riding Assist Technology Self-balances A Bike Without Gyroscope
As we are accustomed to the routine of paying for parking and fuel as we normally would, Honda, together with Visa, Gilbarco and IPS Group, has been working to make that experience a lot more easier. Not that the current way of doing things is any more difficult, but if it could more streamlined (read: more convenient), then why not? Developed by Honda Developer Studio (HDS), this fuel and parking proof-of-concept allows you, the driver, to pay for both parking and gas via a touchscreen monitor right inside the vehicle. Interestingly but also not surprisingly, smartphone integration is also on the menu, but more on that later. Continue reading Honda In-Vehicle Payment May Make Gas Station Stores Very Worried
Regardless of your argument on whether a three-wheeler is a motorcycle or not, you can’t deny that the 1984 Honda ATC 70 Three-Wheeler was probably one of the greatest thing the Japanese marque has rolled out in the 80s. While the performance offered by the ATC 70’s 72 cc, four-stroke engine is definitely not something to shout about, it is by no means a toy ride. On contrary, it is a full-fledged three-wheel motorcycle that comes complete with an automatic clutch, adjustable throttle, an upper design that was a familiar sight of the 80s Honda motorcycle, and also, fat, knobby tires that makes this the ideal beginner ride that to take on the beaten trails. Continue reading Trust Me, You Will Want This Pristine 80s Honda ATC 70 Three-Wheeler
Some custom motorcycles are like superheroes. They are all guts and glory, but at the same time, they are as mysterious and elusive as the fictional cape/mask mankind saviours. The 1930 Henderson KJ Streamline-inspired Custom Honda Shadow 600 you see here is one of those awesome, heart-grabbing custom two wheelers. Inspired by the not-so-practical but highly revered 1930 Henderson motorcycle, this replica is apparently the masterpiece of a workshop in Vietnam. Now, that’s the thing. When it comes spectacular customs, Vietnam is probably the last place you expect to find one, but here we are, witnessing this majestic work of art and salivating over it. Continue reading 1930 Henderson-inspired Custom Honda Shadow Is Absolutely Fabulous
Honda is a like a person. As it grew older, it mellow downs. There was one time when a regular sedan from the Japanese automaker made 160 horses easy, but then, like all things in life, it sort of “deteriorates” and while the subsequent generations still used VTEC technology, they don’t quite match the horsepower the EK has to offer, unless you look to the Type R variety. Speaking of Type R, Honda has officially taken the wrap of the new sports variety of the sporty Civic at the Paris Motor Show and boy, does it look awesome. Continue reading Honda Civic Type R Prototype Unveiled In Paris And It Is Headed To The U.S.
