Honda unveiled a number of concept models at the 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show. One unveiling was the world premiere of the 300TT Racer Concept 300cc class cafÃ© racer sports model.
This concept model is a “Neo Retro Cruiser” that is built using components of the CBR300R and CB300F. As the name suggests, it’s a cafÃ©-style racer that cuts a stylish figure.
The base looks like a steel pipe diamond frame with a truss construction but the sub-frame that supports the seat is detached. Instead, it has a CFRP seat cowl with parts with integrated molding.
Although there are no blinkers, there is a brake light on the back tip of the cowl, giving it the feeling of being a road model of a racing bike. It has excellent detail in the design such as a radiator shroud that looks like a number plate and the aluminum frame for the meters.
Unfortunately, the company says it does not plan to sell this model as a CB variation. However, it appears that it could offer some good ideas for customization for outside shops and builders.
Honda also displayed the CB650 Scrambler Concept, which suggests the same design direction as the 300TT Racer Concept. It bears more resemblance to the base model and has a radiator guard panel made of aluminum plating.
