You first saw the concept image late last year, but now, the actual Honda Neowing concept has surfaced. For those who aren't familiar with this leaning trike, it's powered by a horizontally opposed four-cylinder, paired with an electric motor. Its two-leaning-wheels arrangement up front takes inspiration from Piaggio's quirky MP3. In the rear, you'll find a chopper-style tire mounted to a single-sided swing arm. No word yet on 0-60 or 1/4 mile times yet, but we're guessing it'll fall slightly short of the Lazareth Wazuma R1 super trike. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
