2011 Honda EVO 6 Price, Feature:
According to the Spanish news site Solomoto, Honda is about to launch a bike based off their EVO 6 concept. The EVO 6 debuted at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007 as Hondas stab at making a hypermotard built off the Goldwing 1800cc motor.
Current Honda President, Takeo Fukui, promised that before he left Honda the company would build a bike as innovative as the EVO 6 concept. Fukui is slotted to be replaced by Takanobu Ito at the end of this month, so the rumor fits with that promise made two years ago. Also fitting this announcement is the unveiling of Honda’s upcoming factory in Kumamoto, which will take up production of the Goldwing touring motorcycle.
This will also mean that production of the Goldwing will leave its current home in Marysville, OH. Since the EVO 6 will use the same 150hp 6-cylinder powerplant as the Goldwing, we can expect that the production of the EVO 6 will also occur in Kumamoto.

Here’s a concept: Take a flat-Six 1800cc Gold Wing motor, put it in a minimalist chassis and give it slick, modern styling—think manga by Morbidelli. There’s a single-sided swingarm and the usual electronic instrumentation you see on show vehicles, but what’s really interesting is what you can’t see in the first publicity photos that were circulated in magazines and on the ’net: the absence of both gearshift or clutch levers.
The Honda EVO6 concept motorcycle is Automatic Sports Cruiser features a transmission that can be driven in automatic or six-speed manual mode and a six-cylinder engine.
