Honda had one heck of a booth, probably the largest of the show along with their Italian importer being setup right behind them. With a large product line, there was plenty to see so scroll down for a lot more.

Adventure and Rally are taking over. Here Honda showed off their original Africa Twin, their newest Twin, and the Rally 450 race bike that they take technology from.

The latest CRF450R Rally shares very little with the motocross bike, maybe just a hand full of things such as forks, hubs, and a few bolts here and there. The engine is a one-off dual cam engine, it has its own frame and swingarm, bodywork, shock, electronics, and more.

Honda released their newest Adventure model, the CRF1000L2 and the Sports model updates. The sports model features more guards, heated grips, a 1.6 gallon larger fuel tank, a longer travel rear shock, and more. While the standard L2 gets a slew of small updates throughout the bike.

This new CRF1000L2 and Sports model will be available in the US mid next year. For a list of the updates, head here:

The original 750 Africa Twin.

A peek at Honda's off-road range with Gajser's CRF450RW, their Montesa trials bike (piloted by Toni Bou) and an Enduro spec of the CRF450RX.

Honda showed off their range of road race machines. From the RC213 limited production bike, a MotoGP race bike, Moto2, Moto3, World Superbike, US Superbike, an Endurance road race bike from Japan and more.

The late Nick Hayden's race machine, the Fireblade CBR1000RR. RIP Kentucky Kid...

Honda's Italian importer, RedMoto, has some serious influence. They're allowed to modify their incoming bikes, adding a CRF450R and CRF250R enduro and Supermoto models to their range and even this super unique CRF1000L Africa Twin Rally model.

For the full details on the Honda RedMoto CRF1000L Rally, hit this link and translate it with Google to be amazed:

This Africa Twin Rally features all new shrouds, a Dakar inspired windshield and info area, new forks and more.

It also has beefier triple clamps, bar mounts, and new Showa forks that are more moto-esque and can have air added to the spring damping force.

Off-road pegs and easier to use shifter.

Plus a new third party shock.

We'll cap off the Honda area with this custom CB1100, drool...
