Honda is planning a new, supercharged motorcycle that will have the power-boosting unit mounted on the left-hand side of the engine. And the new kit will power a host of new motorcycles over the next few years.
These are the patent drawings for the new motor with the supercharger system in place. Don’t be fooled by the style of motorcycle drawn in these patents either, we’ve been told that this engine idea is for future models that span several sizes including smaller middleweights AND some form of superbike.
What is sure is that this new supercharger system is also likely to be used in other roadbikes. In not only 600cc and 800cc sizes but larger capacities too.
