Honda reveals prototypes and new models for 2015

Honda UK has revealed today its motorcycle line-up for 2015 including two prototypes and new models.

Honda's desire to encourage new riders - in particular a younger demographic - to the world of motorcycling continues with fifteen A2 licence models on offer, with eight equipped with Honda's unique Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The prototypes include the road going RC213V-S Prototype and the True Adventure Prototype. The RC213V-S Prototype was developed by Honda Racing Corporation and Honda Motor. Together they have created a road going version of the MotoGP championship winning RC213V machine, ridden by Marc Marquez.

The second prototype on display is the True Adventure Prototype. Inspired by both Honda's fantastic heritage in adventure motorcycling and our recent Dakar programme, the True Adventure Prototype captures the product direction as Honda seeks to expand its presence in the Adventure segment.

This prototype has been developed to deliver outstanding off-road capability, and could provide the basis of a true round-the-world motorcycle. It's flanked by the current Team HRC CRF450 Rally and, paying respect to Honda's competition legacy, the 1989 Paris-Dakar winning NXR Africa Twin ridden by Gilles Lalay.

Also new for 2015, are the 40th Anniversary Gold Wing, Gold Wing F6B and Gold Wing F6C. To mark 40 years of continuous Gold Wing production Honda celebrates with a Gold Wing finished in stunning two-tone paintwork and blacked out chassis, plus special 40th Anniversary emblems and key fob which will also be found on the three other 2015 Gold Wing paint options.

A completely revised VFR800X Crossrunner will feature longer travel suspension, new wheels and brakes and aggressive adventure sports touring styling, and also benefits from more mid-range torque and top-end power from its V4-VTEC engine plus HSTC, ABS, premium LED lighting and 5-stage heated grips fitted as standard.

The new Forza 125 is a sports GT scooter that delivers more: more from a 4-valve low-friction engine designed for maximum highway performance, around-town zip and fuel efficiency. And more comfort for two with massive storage capacity, plus premium Honda LED technology and compact, cutting edge style.
