Tokyo Motor Show: Honda EVO6 Spoiler

Let's play a game of 'what's missing from this picture' with the Honda EVO6, revealed live today at the Tokyo Auto Show. It will be hard, because we missed it at first and we were standing in front of the thing. Give up? No shifter. Yeah, it's an auto transmission. That's about enough said about this here bike. Would have been nice if they announced that with the preview shots. It's a damn shame too because it really is a handsome bike. A production model of the EVO6 would fall into an odd category, sort of a heavyweight sport automatic... that nobody would want. As a proof of concept it works quite well though. We can imagine seeing this engine and transmission in a Goldwing in a matter of minutes. Click through the shiny pictures and pay particularly close attention to that fancy exhaust.
