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. Despite the mid-mounted engine, the single occupant Project 2&4 features an offset 'floating driver's seat,' which combined with the open-cockpit design 'evokes the freedom of a bike' while 'placing the driver as close to the action as possible," according to Motor Trend.

According to a press release, the aim is to offer the "freedom of a motorcycle" with "the maneuverability of a car." A "floating seat" places the driver extremely close to the action, and there are no side panels, side windows and windshield to keep things race-like.
