Honda Xaxis Concept
2001 Honda Xaxis
Pursuing the ultimate technological beauty of the motorcycle, the Xaxis Super Sport concept model aggressively emphasizes the beauty inherent in mechanical hardware and raw materials in an innovative new design direction. Its DOHC V-twin engine is set into a lightweight Pivotless twin-spar frame with an eye-catching single-sided swingarm and front suspension, generating a nique sense of power and presence. Taking “functional beauty” into new realms are a new front brake with large, rim-mounted rotor for powerful braking control, a compact exhaust system with integrated, aerodynamic undercowl-shaped muffler, and a radiator built into its compact tail cowl. A new direction in Super Sport machines, the Xaxis fuses innovative styling with advanced technologies to enhance the joys of owning and riding.
In addition to the aggressively styled aerodynamic lines flowing from its front cowl to tail, it also boasts eye-catching cantilevered front and rear suspension systems and a new dual-caliper front brake featuring a large rim-mounted rotor that ensures powerful brake operation.
