Rumours and patent applications from Japan suggest a motorcycle on the way that uses the same chassis and engine as the new Honda Hornet but with a sporty different styling. Here’s what we know about the CBR750R.
At the official presentation, which took place at the Cologne Motor Show in October 2022, Honda revealed the engine with the renewed Hornet. A 755 cc parallel twin, compact and with a clean layout, Euro5 approved and capable of delivering 92 HP at 9,500 rpm. 75 Nm of torque at 7,250 rpm.
The new Transalp project was also born out of the same unit, unveiled at the last Eicma. So, two out of a possible three revealed? Logically, there will be a third incarnation with relatively straightforward changes. The technical base and the engine could remain identical to the Hornet’s, differing only in the fairings and handlebars. Other minor changes could be in the suspension sector, with some tweaks and a more substantial fork set-up, in addition to the possible use of a larger tyre at the rear.
