Honda has been facing the reviews that its bike doesn’t have the same spark that the earlier bikes had. It entirely depends on how you perceive this brand. But it’s a fact that this company has given us some fabulous concepts of bikes that are no more to be seen. While specific ideas were manufactured for example the NR750 which went to 1992 production from 1989 concept, and the DN-01 which was also based on a concept. Other bikes include Rune and the unique CB1100 which were also derived from the thoughts. We get the idea that Honda can turn its concepts into actual products, so here’s the list of Top Ten Honda Concept Bikes that Never Manufactured.
Top Ten Honda Concept Bikes that Never Manufactured – Top Rated
10. Dream Kids Dokitto, 1997
Honda always wanted to make motorcycles and cars for kids, basically everything that can include an engine. This concept had an interchangeable series of kits and parts inspired by Meccano design. You can join them together and make whatever style or design you like and ride it anywhere. Presently, there would be an electric motor and a small battery, but back in the 1990s Honda was considered as a company of engines giving 31cc engine of lawn Moyer, four-stroke with authentic blur block. What can go wrong if you let the kid play with petrol right? Another bike was also there which was called Wakuccho.
9. VTX Techno Cruiser, 2004
The bike came into being from the America R&D department and was also a concept bike. The motorcycle was highly expected that it would be manufactured but it did not. It is a disappointment because only the style was classic enough to bring revolution in the cruiser models. It had a v twin derived VTX1800 motor which was huge enough to be a KTM. The fabulous trailing link forks were also a fantastic style for this bike. Honda also introduced a turbo version which was quite interesting as well.
8. Zodia, 1995
It is questionable that a Zodia should become a part of this list or not as it only consists of those bikes that weren’t manufactured. The Zodia’s influence can be seen on Rune made after eight years even if Zodia didn’t come into being. But we will take in it in our list as the HR Geiger-sequel forks were never produced and Rune used the Goldwing flat-six instead of Zodiac v twin.
7. e-NSR, 2001
This bike was a lightweight and classic electric motorcycle that could be packed and dismantled. Children or dads can also use it and its production was never done. The Fisher-Price style Dokitto did not learn the message they got four years ago when the e-NSR came into being and introduced it with no effort on Meccano/LEGO things and with a petrol engine that was no more a part of it.
6. FN-1, 1997
Just like Honda is thinking about turning it’s classic Pan European to the latest CTX1300 this year, the same happened in 1997 with the FN-1. This bike was considered sportier as compared to CRX1300 and was made to be a naked sports bike. It has a single fork front of the end and split pretty amazing headlight.
5. Xasis, 2001
Apart from the FN-1, the other concepts of Honda bikes seemed viable and feasible to come into being. This bike wasn’t so bad as the Japanese concepts. It had a VTR engine which was components that were available and real. However it did not come into being and wasn’t produced because the idea wasn’t accepted around the world. However the seat unit did inspire Honda’s superbikes which were the only part that contributed to other bikes.
4. EVO6, 2007
The lunatics at Honda weren’t stopped even when the Flat six of Goldwing could never become a sports bike. Honda wanted to introduce something more significant and unique as Yamaha was launching its V-Max, so they tried to bring EVO6 into perspective. This bike looked terrific but not producing GOOD VO6 was the right decision. Although we do wish for its limited run like the Rune as it would’ve made the biking better.
3. X-Wing, 1999
This bike had a V6 1500cc engine, with hardcore DOHC, variable valve timing and traction control. It also has internet connectivity and built-in sat nav which was science fiction back at that time. It was a trailer of the sports tourer that we would get into the millennium.
2. RC-E, 2011
The RC-E shows Honda’s range of electric sports bikes, it is still the latest enough to come into manufacturing. This bike with its electric power looks pretty impressive on paper with its wild look and wacky popular cliches of concept bikes. It also had mirrors and number parts, however it’s styles and designs makes this bike different.
1. CB1100R, 2007
The bikes that didn’t reach production is because of the propositions that weren’t logical or technology and components that weren’t viable to produce. But the CB1100R was different, it was pretty much possible to provide this bike as the CB1100F was chosen for production. The bits of this bike is not included in Honda’s catalog options, but it’s evident that if this bike were available it would make the ‘R’ version more special.

|10||Dream Kids Dokitto, 1997|
This list consists of those bikes from Honda that never reached production. Although the concept of these bikes is interesting enough to be turned into an actual product the feasibility for some wasn’t possible as the technology and specific factors are still considered to be futuristic and not available. However if these bikes were available it wild make the biking list more interesting.
