With the move to Euro 5 emission regulations fast approaching, motorcycle manufacturers across the board are quietly developing its next generation of machines – and our Japanese friends Young Machine has created a couple of CGI mock ups of what it reckons Honda might come up with.

With rumours already swirling that there’s a larger capacity, 1080cc Euro 5 compliant Africa Twin on the way for 2020 – it’s not too much of a leap to assume that Honda’s going to make use of its updated engine in other machines. And that’s why Young Machine has created a couple of CGI mock-ups to show what might be on the way in the not too distant future.

The one that we’re most excited about is its neo-retro GB1000TT. Just look at it. Isn’t it gorgeous? Young Machine also reckons there’s a good chance that there’s a larger capacity version of its Rebel cruiser on the way too – but at this stage, it’s simply speculation.


With the new Africa Twin expected to be unveiled at the big bike shows towards the end of 2019, for a 2020 release date – there’s a chance we might get a glimpse of the new GB1000TT and Rebel 1000 sooner rather than later, even if they are simply concepts.
