Toyko: Honda's RC-E electric concept

An electric sportsbike?

THIS 250-sized supersport machine is one of seven prototype Hondas to be showcased at the Tokyo Motorshow. Most of the other show models are four-wheeled.

Details are sketchy but Honda claim that this RC-E is: 'An EV version of a super sports bike that pursues the joy of riding. A powerful and smooth ride unique to an EV model is achieved with the 250cc-class compact body.'

The working model also features a removable power source allowing the user to power other products when the bike's not in use.

The Tokyo Motor Show will take place at Tokyo Big Sight from Saturday 3 December to Sunday 11 December 2011.
