Honda Bulldog concept

If you'e confident in your manhood - or just living and loving - this looks like a real beauty. Lot's of Grom/Ruckus love.

I am, and do want, with normal wheels and suspension. Because otherwise, it's perfect.

Great concept.

Needs 17" rear, 19" front, 7" of travel and I think this bike would be a hit.

Looks like a big TW.

It will look very nice with my grand son's Lego bike collection:

I like the "utilitarian" concept but the tank part is a little bit too much on the bulky/chunky side to me.

And it needs suspension travel...

A little fugly but at least Honda's thinking outside the box. Cast rims, low clearance, short suspension travel and under the frame exhaust pretty much just makes this a street bike with slightly knobby tires. The Ducati Scrambler is probably more dirt friendly and that's not saying much.

The bulky tank is also storage, opening up on either side.

Fugly and practical totally appeals to me. What I hate is ugly without reason.

This is for all those people who were begging for a 400cc twin cylinder tote goat. Both of them.

My guess at Honda specs:

600lbs
12HP
100 year unlimited mile warranty

Sadly, this is probably true. Still, if they were to not purposefully cripple it, it has an audience. More than just me and my shadow.
