Honda has taken the wraps off their new Project 2&4.
Set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the concept was created as part of a competition between their global design studios and promises to combine the “freedom of a motorcycle” with “the maneuverability of a car.”
The exterior styling draws inspiration from the 1965 RA272 and features a minimalist design that is undeniably sporty. There’s also a ‘floating seat’ which was designed to put the “driver as close to the action as possible, evoking the freedom of a bike and completing the immersion provided by Honda Project 2&4’s extreme performance.”
Speaking of the performance, power is provided by a modified version of the company’s RC213V competition motorcycle engine. The 999 cc V-4 four-stroke unit produces over 215 PS (158 kW) and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and should enable the Project 2&4 to be pretty quick as the concept weighs just 405 kg (893 lbs).
