Another design in the Michelin Challenge Design 2006 is this entry from Honda. The GRX is powered by the 1500cc six cylinder engine used in the Honda Gold Wing. (Thanks, Aaron, for pointing that out.) We like motorcycle powered cars a lot here at The Kneeslider, and this is an example of what happens when you put the corporate design team to work on the idea.
For some time now, Honda has been coming out with designs and developments in a huge number of areas. Their Asimo robot which is adding more and more capability all the time, the FCX hydrogen fuel cell car which they are saying may be produced in three or four years which works along with their HES or Home Energy Station that makes hydrogen from natural gas while also providing heat and electricity for your home, they showed up at Oshkosh with their HondaJet, their new DN-01 motorcycle shown in Tokyo which looks close to production, the new Gold Wing equipped with the first production motorcycle airbag system; this is a company that is breathtaking in its transportation technology diversity which at the same time all works together in a synergistic fashion. Any one of these developments is worthy of note in its own right, together they make up an extremely impressive list. Go, Honda.
