We must have missed this April Fools render done by Luca Bar Design for the Italian site MotorBox, as Luca has once again flexed his skills with the pixels with his vision for motorcycles. Drawing on the idea that Honda would update its sport-touring line with a new version of the half-faired CBF1000, Bar explains that he has already been pondering the idea of an update for Honda before being set to his task of penning an April Fools bike.
In the work you can see the classic shape of the CBF, most notably in the fairing, but Bar has infused some of the styling cues from the CB1000R as well to freshen up the design. Borrowing the CB1000R’s forks, swingarm, and exhaust, his work ties the CBF a bit more into Honda’s current line, which we think is necessary considering how long the bike has been around (2006) without an update.
As usual, it’s more excellent work from Luca Bar Design, but we doubt Honda will get crazy enough to follow his lead. At best, expect new paint schemes for 2012.
