Honda's new sporty NSC50R, one of three new machines the company unveiled at Cologne's International Motorcycle, Scooter and Bike Fair, comes in several colour schemes including that based on the Repsol Honda MotoGP team. It is also available in pearl white and grey metallic.

Other new machines unveiled are what the company calls a "classic naked CB1100" and a Dakar Rally race machine.

Honda says the NSC50R is a new 50cc scooter designed to attract young newcomers to two-wheeled transport.  and a Repsol colour scheme based on the Repsol Honda MotoGP machine.

The CB1100 is described as "an exquisitely engineered mix of classic and naked styling that offers thoroughly modern and engaging performance with a timeless design". The CB1100 is powered by an air-cooled, in-line four cylinder engine.

The CRF450 Rally is Honda’s new challenger for the Dakar Rally and the company's first factory-backed machine to enter the rally since 1989. It is based on Honda’s production endure machine the CRF450X.

New colours and a Special Edition Crosstourer are also on display. The Special Edition Crosstourer has new graphics and a matt black look, including front forks, fender and tail section, for the 1200cc adventure sports tourer that went on sale earlier in 2012 while CBR1000RR Fireblade 2013 is unveiled with a new version of the Tricolore colour scheme, plus an all-new MotoGP inspired Repsol Honda colour.
