The Honda CB400 craze started way back in 1975 when the company released the first gen bikes bearing this codename. Considering that the vibe has been around for more than 40 years, there’s always room for improvement and overall design alterations – that’s exactly what João Paulo Caetano Moreira thought about. In the early 80s, Brazilians found out Honda would produce the milestone CB400 in their country; the joy didn’t last all that long since the bike was discontinued in 1994 and replaced with more technologically advanced options.

Designer João Paulo Caetano Moreira’s modern concept offers a glimpse of what the future may bring, with this vintage style cafe racer looking like it means business. The midsize bike still sports a 400 cc engine showing off the very same signature aesthetic elements that made it popular so many years ago. Despite its focus on heritage, there are some futuristic features about this bike, such as a fingerprint scanner fuel tank access system, a digital display with smartphone syncing capability, and cameras feeding information directly to the rider’s helmet display. Honda, are you watching this?
