2012 Honda Integra
2012 Honda Integra Engine
The 2012 Honda Integra features a Dual Clutch Transmission mated to a 670cc in-line Twin.
Honda has released information on a new model that spans the gap between maxi scooters and motorcycles, dubbed the Integra. The company describes the Integra as having “motorcycle performance with scooter comfort and protection.” A second-generation of Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission provides the convenience of an automatic transmission with an optional manual mode. From the spec sheet the new design features a 60-inch wheeelbase and a 31.1-inch seat height. The Integra weighs in with claimed curb weight of 524 pounds and maximum carrying capacity of 430 pounds.

An all-new 670cc lightweight liquid-cooled, in-line Twin powers the Integra, delivering strong low to medium rpm torque. Uneven-interval firing with a 270-degree phase crank and an uniaxial primary balancer is designed to create a throbbing engine feel with low vibration. Low exhaust emissions and high fuel economy are claimed with the new powerplant, that is slated to be featured in several concepts to be unveiled at the 69th International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan, Italy.

When is it coming to the US?

Move to Europe or Asia. It's not being sold by Honda in the U.S. Only the NC700X is going to be available here some time this summer. I already on a 2011 Honda PCX and I wanted one of these too. I'm now looking at buying one of the two new BMW 647cc CVT scooters that will be available here this fall instead. Honda missed the boat on this one.

I like this bike! Where can I get one in the USA?????? Anybody know???? Went to a local Honda dealer today, he didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked him about the Integra!!!! Seriously..If anybody knows where I can find one, I would appreciate the info!!!

Sounds like a great bike but it is not a stepthrough design. So why waste the space by putting in a small dip when with a faux gas tank they could put in more storage? I realize they 2 more bikes with this engine and faux gas tanks coming out but as near as I can see they don't have the weather protection the Integra has. Oh well if it comes to america I will definately look at it. I can add Panniers to carry my grocerys and other junk. I sure wish they would offer more options auch as cruise control and sat. navigation. Also wish the seat height was lower. Most scooters have a lower sear height - 29.5" or less.

I'm not afraid of it. I just don't like it.

-Nomad- People hate what they are afraid of. The scooter hate is from those who give in to peer pressure and are too insecure to ride what works best. Therefore, these people choose their bikes and clothing to conform with a group (e.g. "bikers" and "squids"). Sad really. Not that I would care, other than poor sales of practical bikes means the US does not get a lot of neat bikes sold in Europe. :(

-Nomad- My scooter (Honda NHX110 Elite or Lead 110 in Europe) is 254-lb. wet and gets 95+ mpg, and can be had for $2.5-3K. A little more power would be nice for the occasional 55-mph urban arterial or going uphill, but 9 HP is fine for 99% of my commuting and errands. A maxi-scooter would be good for someone who has trouble with a clutch due to medical issues.

While I don't really understand the hatefull attitude about scooters, I don't understand 550 lb scooters that cost $10k either. I mean, will people finally be satisfied with 100 bhp and canyon carving ability? Then what's the point? The only true market for scooters is the urban runabout that weighs 300 lbs and gets 70 mpg. For some reason, though, everybody from Honda to Aprilia is exercising one-upmanship. Maybe they are trying to CREATE a market. I don't think I'll be risking any stock in it.

BRILLIANT! The WORST of both worlds! A stellar achievement by Honda......WTF!?!

To me this thing looks as good and practical as the Honda Rune. Do they actually pay people to design these ?

The Integra looks good to those living in the 2010's. To those living in the 1930's, not so much, eh?

Just looks like a scooter with big wheels. Ugly in my opinion.

I like the looks of the Integra better than any cruiser or chopper, and it is certainly better than the DN-01. Hopefully the price of the Integra will be in Silverwing territory and not VFR1200 territory. The Integra would be much less tiresome than a conventional motorcycle to ride in urban traffic (I find myself using my NHX110 over my NT700V for all shorter trips), while offering motorcycle performance.

If I wanted a scooter, I'll buy one. If I wanted a Motorcycle, I'll buy one. Ohterwise this thing is ugly.

Will this replace the long-in-the-tooth Silverwing?
Piglet2010   October 25, 2011 06:11 PM
I want one!
