Hybrid Motorcycle for Honda

Honda has always been an innovator when it comes to compact gas-saving technology.  Some cars are catching the motorcycle in terms of efficiency.  Now the company aims to put hybrid technology into their motorcycles to turn the tables once again.  Honda projects that the first of the models could be on the market in a matter of a couple of years.

The first and obvious problem is putting all the hybrid technology, which many car makers have had difficulty doing, into a package that could fit in a bike.  However, given Honda’s history I wouldn’t bet against them.  They claim that they will be able to get up to 50% more efficiency out of the engines ranging from 200-1000cc, and costs would be kept down by sharing much of the hybrid technology found in their current cars.
