Above and be­yond its rad­i­cal en­gine, hy­brid sys­tem, trans­mis­sion, chas­sis and sus­pen­sion, the new Wing will be packed with elec­tron­ics.

Patents have al­ready re­vealed it will have an elec­tric screen for the first time, but that’s just the start. So ex­treme is the amount of elec­tronic gad­getry on the bike that Honda has filed sev­eral patents re­lat­ing purely to the de­sign of the bar con­trols, fea­tur­ing thumb-wheels, joy­sticks and mul­ti­ple but­tons to give the rider ac­cess to all the sys­tems. Sat­nav, stereo, elec­tronic sus­pen­sion ad­just­ment, not to men­tion sta­bil­ity con­trol set­tings, en­gine modes and pos­si­bly even con­trols for the hy­brid sys­tem will all need to be ac­ces­si­ble and easy to un­der­stand.
