At long last, the world's largest and most influential motorcycle manufacturer appears to be getting serious about electric motorcycles, announcing it will be showing a supersports motorcycle concept at the Tokyo Motor Show next month.

Named the RC-E, the images released by Honda indicate a a super sports motorcycle designed solely for the "the joy of riding."

The brief press statement indicates that the machine is powerful, smooth and will only be the size of a 250cc-class machine. One wonders if Honda will pursue its time-honoured formula for capturing marketplaces - going racing - with the new EV.

I'll be in Tokyo for the show, and simply cannot wait for this one.

Very excited!
