Honda, a prominent name in the automotive and motorcycle industry, is making a foray into the world of electric bicycles with its debutant offering, the Honda e-MTB Concept. This innovative e-bike recently took the stage at the Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo alongside other remarkable innovations from leading Japanese motorcycle manufacturers and automakers.
What sets the Honda e-MTB Concept apart from many e-bike concepts is its practicality. It presents a design that seems ready for production, implying a positive trend in the world of e-bike concepts and raising hopes of real-world availability.
One notable aspect of the Honda e-MTB Concept is its use of an existing Brose mid-drive motor. This decision showcases Honda's focus on refining the bike's overall look and structural design while entrusting the production of bike components to experienced companies, thereby avoiding the need for reinventing the wheel.
This full-suspension e-bike is packed with high-end components, featuring a SRAM Eagle AXS drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Fox suspension in the front and rear, a RockShox Reverb dropper seat post, DT Swiss XM 1700 wheels, and Maxxis Minion DHF tires. These top-tier parts underscore Honda's commitment to delivering a high-performance e-bike.
