[] - 2015 EICMA: Honda CB Six50 Concept

Honda is dipping its toe in the suddenly trendy scrambler waters, introducing a concept model based off of its CB650F and CBR650F platform. The CB Six50 Concept, like the CB4 roadster concept, is a design exercise from Honda R&D Europe presented at EICMA.

While the engine and frame appear identical to those on the production 650s, the CB Six50 adopts the prototypical scrambler garb of wire-spoke wheels, knobby tires and rising exhaust. A bash plate protects the four header pipes, which is a shame given their elegant design, but it’s a practical choice for a machine claiming off-road capability.

While models like Moto Guzzi‘s new V7 II Stornello or Triumph’s Scrambler seek a retro look, the CB Six50 has a very modern aesthetic. Eschewing the round headlight design of its competitors (including the Ducati Scrambler which also uses an LED), Honda opted for a rectangular headlight with a spartan-looking mounting that shows off rather than hides the routing of cables.

The motocross-style handlebar is mounted high above the triple clamp, and it’s here that Honda has attached a smartphone-sized digital display; no circular analogue dials on this scrambler.

The Six50’s seat looks very slender and rises up to a very minimalist tail. The ribbed seat is red, matching the bars that guard the radiator and extends up into a similar red stripe on the fuel tank.

Like the CB4, the CB Six50 is just a concept with no firm plans for a production model.
