There's something wrong about this 'bike' : that thing running below the saddle.
Imagine a shock and then the saddle goes on its way !

Nice pics !

I like this concept. The idea of a battery recharging system built into the braking system and decelration is pretty good. It would be interesting if they could infuse the system into the transmission though, so it would charge itself while the bikes was accelerating as well.

What would be the point of that? You'd be sucking power out of the gas tank and putting it into the battery with all the wasted energy(lost through friction and heat) inbetween the two sucking out a bunch of energy.

Why choose the Honda over the Yammi FJR 1300?

If I had only the choice between the two, I'd probably go with the Yamaha......about 100 lbs lighter and still the same class bike. Price is about the same.

Actually, I still like the 'old' Concours enough to consider. A lot cheaper, too.
