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:
