    Honda VTX Performance Cruiser Concept Displayed at Rockefeller Center



    Here are some photos of a VTX-based concept cruiser (known as "Concept 1") which was recently displayed at the Rockefeller Center in New York. The bike appears to be a "power cruiser"-style design, and has some interesting features, including a Rune-style fork and a rear wheel with no axle (check out the last picture).

    Will Honda produce this bike? It depends on the public response, but remember how quickly the Rune was moved from concept to production once Honda saw how popular it was. If the concept does make it to production, expect it to lose the unique rear hub design and some of the CNC-machined parts. Email your thoughts to us about this power cruiser concept. Here is some of Honda's info about the bike:

            I loathe cruisers but that's an awesome looking bike - That's the sexiest cruiser I've seen. No axle???? sexy.

              2, Always know what you're doing
              3, In failure of step 2 refer to step one

                Having the front axle that far back from the 'forks' would change the steering alot... :? Prolly makes for a smaller turning circle considering the amount of steering lock you have (or havn't).
                Aim high and consider yourself worthy of great things

                  I was thinking the same Flakey, kinda like power steering with less of a turning circle.

                  Likin the look and also agree with Blade, change the pipes and hell yeh, fucken siick. Oh and DEFINITELY get rid of the plastic number plate holder (or is that a mud guard?) .
                  mmmmm sacrilicious

                          hmm kinda cool - like a indutrial muisc version of the run , which also looks pretty funk and also the only cruiser i'd be seen dead on
