New 2011 Honda patents

Honda has received new patents, which shows a motorcycle with an unusual design for the Japanese. Patents themselves, if not to look at the pictures relate to design the front and rear lights. But all this is set to a very strange "creation", which is Honda, perhaps, plan to produce in the future.
On schemes bike stripped can be seen all the structural elements, frame and tank, and the body itself is not. The most interesting thing - the engine and its location. Single-cylinder engine is almost horizontal, as maxi scooter.

The second patent shows a similar bike, although with some differences in the design of the frame. In fact, both bikes have a fuel tank under the saddle, only here in the first place the usual location of the fuel tank is trunk, and the second is not there at all, which makes the bike more like a scooter.
