Honda’s new 755 platform is generating buzz in the motorcycle world, as rumors suggest that the company is expanding the platform to a range of products. The latest reports indicate that Honda’s next offering on the 755 platform will be a Neo-Classic motorcycle in the GB series.
The 755 platform is powered by a completely new 755cc Unicam twin engine, which has already been used in the naked-sport Honda CB750 Hornet, unveiled at Intermot in Germany, and the ADV-Tourer XL750 Transalp, introduced at EICMA in Italy. With a maximum power of 91.8 horsepower at 9,500 RPM, this engine boasts a new 270-degree crank angle design that simulates the performance of a V-Twin engine, making for smooth early acceleration and excellent adhesion.
Japanese media outlet autoby.jp has created a computer simulation of the potential Neo-Classic motorcycle, basing it on the latest GB series model, the GB350. The render features a JDM-style motorcycle with round headlights, wide handlebars, a single long seat cushion, and a standard telescopic front suspension, as well as a large, rounded fuel tank for a classic look.
However, it’s important to note that Honda has not confirmed or provided any information about these rumors. The motorcycle giant is known for making the most out of its platforms and it’s not a surprise that this platform will continue to develop and evolve. So it’s yet to be seen whether the next model will be in a Neo-Classic style as imagined, or a Sport Full-Fairring style like the CBR750RR that has been previously reported.
