JAPANESE bike maker Honda made waves in its domestic home market recently after revealing several new creations during the recently concluded Osaka Motorcycle Show 2015.

Amongst the things that debuted was the new Honda Bulldog Concept bike. Based on the Japanese H-brand’s CB400F domestic model, the Bulldog concept adopts an unorthodox rugged exterior design, solidifying the concept’s true purpose as an off-roader as far as aesthetics are concerned. It also sports a luggage compartment located in the fuel tank.

Underneath, the CB400F’s 400cc parallel twin mill and six-speed transmission mated to it are retained. The biggest changes from the CB400F base bike is the concept’s switch to 15-inch wheels wrapped in knobby tyres as opposed to the base bike’s stock 17-inch units.

Honda has not confirmed its intent in producing the Bulldog concept anytime soon. However, given the fact that it is based on the brand’s CB400F, it would not take much for Honda to add it into production and perhaps be offered in its 2016 line up.
