Is Honda seriously considering bringing their SFA concept to the market, or is it just trying to fill a gap at this weekend’s Osaka Motorcycle Show? We sincerely hope it’s the former because the Honda SFA is a gorgeous looking machine that reminds us of a slighly larger though more rowdy looking Grom.
The Honda SFA concept was first unveiled last October in Indonesia and hasn’t been seen or heard of since then. In its current concept form, it features what appears to be a 150cc single cylinder engine mounted on a trellis frame, most likely from the CBR150R which is popular in South East Asia. Other features include an exhaust that’s partially hidden under the seat and a single-sided swingarm.
While those last to features probably wouldn’t make it to market, if the overall style remains we think it would be a huge success. If there’s also potential to bump the capacity up to around 250cc then Honda would surely have a hit not only in South East Asia, but in western markets as well. The Honda Grom for example has been a big hit for Honda in the US and I’m sure many doubted that would be the case.
After the Osaka Motorcycle Show, the Honda SFA concept will also make its way the Tokyo Motorcycle Show – one of the biggest events for the year. Also on display will be another new bike, the Honda CRF250 Rally concept as well as another showing of the True Adventure and the RC213V-S concept bikes.
