Honda has unveiled its latest take on leisure motorcycling with the Bulldog concept. The bike’s connection to the canine breed isn’t limited just to the name, as Honda is marketing the Bulldog as a ‘Lovable Touring Partner’.
The front of the Bulldog concept might trick you into believing you that it is actually a Honda Ruckus, though, unlike the 50cc scooter, the Bulldog is powered by a 400cc two-cylinder engine. It rides on chunky 15-inch tyres, which along with a low set seat give it a low-slung stance. The front gets twin round headlamps which are protected by a blue crash guard, giving it a robust look.
The Bulldog has been developed as a leisure motorcycle for customers to ‘actively enjoy the outdoor life’. It also features storage space on the sides of the fuel tank, which doubles up as a styling cue. The Bulldog will break cover at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, this weekend, along with the SFA 150 Concept, CRF250, RC213V and the Africa Twin.
