Project 2&4 Concept Blends Motorcycle and Automobile to Stunning Effect
Your last project probably went something like this: You were assigned to a group of people who didn’t seem all that interested in getting together to work on anything. All of them, of course, were way dumber than you. As deadlines loomed, you became more frantic. Finally, the group convened, and clearly the sum of the parts was worse as a whole. You ended up redoing most of others’ work to salvage a “C.”
If this sounds unfamiliar to you, you might have been the detestable loafer of the group.
But Honda, on the other hand, apparently knows how to put people on a project who get the job done. That’s how the company turned the winning entry in its “Global Design Project” into a bizarre but intriguing concept vehicle that even your Sociology teacher would’ve given an A+.
It’s called the Honda Project 2&4, and it will be on display at this week’s 66th Frankfurt Motor Show:
Marrying motorcycle and automotive ideals, Honda ‘s Project 2&4 roadster showcases creativity. Powered by the 1.0-liter V4 found in a Honda RC213V MotoGP racing bike, this roadster has 212 horsepower and 87 lb-ft of torque, and provides riders with the maneuverability of a car, as well as the thrill of driving on a road without windows or doors.
And its design is… interesting, to say the least:
The concept was the result of a global Honda design competition, proving that the best ideas roll in from all around us.
