Honda 2017 Bikes Launched At EICMA 2016

By Events, Honda, ,

Honda had a big announcement in Colognelast month with the Fireblade SP1 and SP2 as well as the CB1100 and RS models, but the Milan show has delivered more announcements and bigger improvements. Here’s what we know and think will be big! For a full breakdown on the upcoming 2017 Honda models please see our Honda dealer website.

CBR1000RR Fireblade

After the Intermot announcement last month many were left wondering if Honda would announce a non-SP version. They didn’t disappoint opting to release the new model the day before the EICMA with a crew of Honda riders including Marquez.

90% of it’s components are new to the 2017 model and power to weight has a 14% improvement. The official overview is: Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS, Riding Mode Select System and Power Selector, full Showa suspension and RC213V-S MotoGP derived technology.

X-ADV

We’ve seen the videos, heard the specs and we now have the X-ADV. Part of the “New Concpet” NC range and the DCT engine. It is a completely new style of city/adventure bike. We are keen to see one in the flesh and as a commuter belt, London Honda dealer it could be a winner in 2017!

CRF250 Rally

After the super moto CRF250M being discontinued in 2015, it felt as if there was a gap in the Honda line-up. Enter the CRF250 Rally! With Dakar styling and based on the CRF450 it is designed to be green lane ready as well as an eveyday bike.

CB650F/CBR650F

More aggressive styling for the 2017 models. It’s front end is very similar to the 2016 500 series and has revised LED headlights and tail lights, more compact, updated intake and exhaust delivering more power. It is a great looking revision of two of our big seller bikes.

Forza 125

Since the Foza launched in 2015, we have had many happy customers. The revised silver/blue colour scheme looks even more futuristic than the previous schemes, but the biggest announcement is the keyless start being added after it’s introduction on the relaunched SH300i in 2016.

SH125i

Europe’s best selling scooter also gets an update with the keyless start system as well as updated LED headlights and tail lights. It’s been our primo commuter scooter and knowledge bike for a number of years now and thie update just builds on it’s reliability and economy.
