We have seen some exciting design concepts from Honda's R&D team over the last five editions of EICMA. And, this year too Honda has gone one step ahead in that direction wherein the company revealed several new products including 2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade, CRF1100L Africa Twin & CB1000R. Apart from these motorcycles, the Italian wing has come up with a new concept at this year's edition of EICMA. Dubbed as Honda CB4X adventure tourer concept, the company call the project as an experimental machine that is developed under the theme of 'fun seven days of a week' that is designed by Valerio Aiello and his team. The concept from Honda is claimed to be a crossover with a blend of a Sport and Touring. Though the company hasn't revealed much about the concept, it is speculated that it draws power from an inline four-cylinder engine offering enough power for long weekend trips along with the flexibility of everyday commute.

Moreover, Honda also showcased CB4 Interceptor concept a couple of years ago, which is still expected to be launched in the market. On the competition front, the Honda CB4X concept will compete against the likes of Yamaha Tracer 900, Kawasaki Versys 1000 and Ducati Multistrada.
