EICMA 2021: Honda Hornet Concept Motorcycle Revealed

Honda’s just revealed a concept bike at EICMA – and the Hornet will apparently be making a comeback.

Fascinating, to me, since there are technically multiple bikes from Honda that have sported the ‘Hornet’ moniker.

We’re assuming this new concept will take after the original CB600F, though it could also be a bigger displacement variant as yet unseen in Honda’s current lineups.

We and MCN are gauging this based on the sights and sounds brought to us by the events of EICMA; the ultra-aggressive head (reminiscent of a KTM 890 Duke), the “accompanying sound effects around the stage suggesting it will be a revvy, mid-sized parallel-twin, complete with a quick shifter,” the “wide, flat tail reminiscent of the Honda Fireblade superbike,” and a sharp set of shoulders that beat any in Honda’s naked roadster range.

      If you’re talking the yellow bike. Well, given it is an inline 4, this is just a random photo thrown in to try to confuse the issue. Although could be out of the archives of a CB600F (must admit I’m not fully aware of the model).
      Given the renderings don’t have usable handlebars, guessing if it makes it to production would be significantly different looking.
