You've seen the concept images, now check out Honda's Project 2&4 in the wild. It's essentially an 893-pound, four-wheeled vehicle with a steering wheel and racing seat. Now why is it a motorcycle hybrid? This vehicle is powered by a Honda superbike 1L V4 four-stroke superbike engine that produces 212-horsepower @ 13,000RPM and 87 lb-ft of torque @ 10,500RPM, mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. "Honda says the Project 2&4 concept's body design and engine position are inspired by the Honda RA272 Formula 1 car from 1965.
