Honda has released its second video teaser under the ‘Neo Sports Cafe’ banner – and this time there’s a lot more on show of the big retro-styled naked that we’ll see at EICMA in early November.

Whilst Honda hasn’t given all the game away the new video does show that the bike is a four-cylinder motor (so not the supercharged V-twin that we first revealed a while ago thanks to filed patent drawings from Honda’s design office – below).

It also goes on to reveal that the bike has more retro feel to the bodywork and exhaust design than the illustration from top Japanese magazine Young Machine (below) imagined.

We can also see (below) that the bike does have a single-sided swingarm with a Ducati Diavel-esque floating numberplate holder. The round LED-powered headlight looks on-trend.

What do you reckon? Is this enough of a retro for you to get you interested or is it not modern enough?
