“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Honda Patents NXR160 Supermoto Design For Europe

Honda has filed a patent in Europe for the design of the NXR160, a small-displacement supermoto-style motorcycle the company introduced in Brazil late last year. The patent application, however, was filed March 31 with the European Union’s Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market, months after the Brazilian introduction, suggesting Honda may offer the NXR160 in Europe.
The NXR160 adopts distinctly CRF-style bodywork and its frame appears similar to the semi-double cradle steel frame used on Honda’s CRF150F (as illustrated in the animated GIF below) and CRF230F off-road bikes, so it’s not unreasonable to expect Honda to adopt the CRF name if it does introduce it to Europe.

If Honda does offer the NXR in Europe, it’s unclear if it’ll use the same engine as the Brazilian model is a flex-fuel vehicle designed to run on either gasoline or ethanol. According to Honda Brazil, the NXR160 produces 14.3 hp at 8500 and 10.5 lb-ft. at 5500 rpm when running on gas but with ethanol, the engine claims 14.5 hp and 11.6 lb-ft.
