Styling design: Crossover Concept Design

Departing from conventional thinking and categories, the Crossrunner pursues an advanced design that can expand the satisfaction of riders and passengers by exploring possibilities for creating new value and finding new ways to meet the fundamental needs of customers to ride "anytime, anywhere, relaxed, fun, and safe." This new design fits the lifestyle of those who are full of intellectual curiosity and wish to look for new types of joy in their lives.

Considering such a design in the light of the development concept, we selected the keyword "Easy fun at first sight":

  • A powerful, sophisticated design full of energy that looks attractive in urban areas and in outdoor activities
  • An upright position that demonstrates on-road comfort and urban mobility
  • A body size that can be handled easily even in urban areas
  • A raised, sporty body
  • A distinctive tough-looking front fairing
  • A user-friendly pillion seat whose shape has excellent holding capability, and avoids feelings of fatigue
  • A comfortable windscreen that allows the rider to maintain a natural riding position, from the streets to the highway

Based on these specifics, the development team focused on a heretofore unseen "beautiful proportioning" and ease of use in daily life. The design incorporates both ideas into a high-level fusion.

The distinctive phrase "Jump & Go" expresses a friendly atmosphere with fluid lines that just promise FUN - while not being overly aggressive like some other recent motorcycles.

The Crossover Concept Design is one of Honda's directions in its challenge to open up new areas of the market, as it responds to diversifying market needs.

A body size that allows agile riding even on city streets, the riding position, easy handling that can be put to full use with peace of mind on a narrow road or while parking-these elements are all pursued to the limit.

The design goal for this motorcycle is to offer a well-balanced combination of different strengths that excite  the spirit of adventure, and an urban, sophisticated style to allow users to explore greater possibilities in their hobbies and leisure activities.
