LONDON, England - Several new 2014 Honda models will be on show at the London Motorcycle Show (February 14-16) at London’s ExCel Arena.

According to the bikemaker, many 2014 models have only recently made their UK debut with quite a few not yet on sale, so the show will provide a great opportunity to get close to the new metal before it arrives in UK dealers.

Some of the new models on show will be:

CBR1000RR SP – Featuring engine enhancements and equipped with Öhlins suspension and Brembo mono block front brake calipers for even sharper on-track performance.

CBR650FA stylish new sleek, sports middleweight, designed from inception by a young team of Honda engineers. Featuring a new liquid-cooled 650cc four-cylinder engine, tuned for high torque, especially in the low to mid rpm range.

VFR800F Given a totally new look and a host of upgrades including ABS, heated grips, adjustable seat and self-cancelling indicators.

• CB1100EX – Revised to now feature wire wheels, twin rear silencers and a six-speed gearbox.

NC750X, NC750S – Introduced in 2011, receive further utility enhancements and an increase in engine capacity for more power and torque and even better fuel consumption.

CBR300R More power and torque from a bigger capacity engine, and Fireblade-inspired styling for the motorcycle that represents the first step into Honda’s Super Sport line-up.

Alongside Honda’s model line-up, star riders, including John McGuinness, will also be making an appearance.

Representatives from the Honda Ron Haslam Race School and Dave Thorpe Honda Off-road Centre will be on hand to talk to visitors about the different Honda riding experiences on offer.
