Last week, Honda unveiled its retro-modern Honda hubless electric motorcycle.

According to Yanko Design, the new hubless CB160 (2016) motorcycle was designed by James Stumpf to “pay tribute to the classic Honda 160 in a not-so-subtle way… with a modern electric engine twist.”

So, with Modern technology and a little of yesteryear sprinkled in, you may well see one of these whispering past you as you shop in Target on a Sunday.

Be fun to run around the business park here, or as a pit bike etc.

So keep your eyes out at the new Concept shows as something is bound to come out with a look similar to this.
