Honda electric FireBlade

Honda patent suggests electric Fireblade

Last updated:

The latest patent application drawings from Honda seem to indicate the Japanese company is planning an electric Fireblade, albeit with high bars.

But don’t get too excited or outraged yet!

Most traditional motorcycle manufacturers have toyed with the idea of electric motorcycles for years.

Some have produced electric scooters, mobility scooters, trials bikes and trail bikes.

However, none has yet come to the market with a full-sized electric motorcycle, except for Harley’s LiveWire.

Honda also filed has an extraordinary number of patent applications in the past couple of years.

None of these has yet come to the market either.

Electric Fireblade

We wouldn’t bet on an electric Fireblade, unless they are planning on taking over the supply of race bikes from Energica for the FIM Moto-e World Cup.

Honda’s electric plans seem more tailored to scooters, mobility scooters and small commuter bikes.

Also, the use of the Fireblade outline in the drawings could simply be artist expediency as several other patent application drawings have included Fireblade outlines.
