Powering the hyper-lightweight rocket is a mid-mounted 1.0-liter V-4 motorcycle engine originally designed for MotoGP racing. This race-bred mill puts out over 212 hp at a screaming 13,000 rpm, with 87 lb-ft of torque twisting the tires at 10,500 rpm. It’s not as though the MotoGP powerplant has much to shuffle around, however, as the Honda Project 2&4 concept tips the scales at a featherweight 893 pounds. This is a result of both the exposed body work and its diminutive stature, with the 2&4 being only 119.7 inches long, 72.8 inches wide, and a miniscule 39.2 inches tall.
The open cockpit is slung to one side, with a strange floating seat design. The seat is offset to the left, unlike most open-wheeled contraptions, which traditionally slap the driver smack-dab in the center of the chassis for maximum weight distribution and unified center of gravity.
The Honda Project 2&4 concept makes its official debut at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show. For now, you can take a look at the wild ride in the gallery below.
