Honda is pleased to confirm the new concept middleweight streetfighter has the performance punch to match its striking, aggressive look. The Hornet Concept is powered by an all-new 755cc parallel twin-cylinder, 8-valve Unicam engine. Delivering 67.5kW at 9,500rpm and 75Nm of torque at 7,250rpm, this newly developed engine will carry on the Hornet legacy, with free-revving character and exhilarating top-end punch. There is plenty of torque at the mid-range too, delivering the kind of acceleration that makes every moment enjoyable. Furthermore, a distinctive pulsation feel – and hugely entertaining sound – is delivered by a combination of the 270° crank’s uneven firing sequence and carefully designed exhaust system.Can't wait? register for updates
