Details on the new Honda roadster model have leaked ahead of the model’s official debut.
Sticking close to the concept that was originally shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the leaked brochure images for the upcoming S660 gives us a good idea of what to expect when the production model makes an appearance sometime this year. Dubbed as a successor to the compact, mid-engine Honda Beat that was built from 1991 to 1996, the S660 will be a compact, lightweight roadster with a 660 cc engine with 63 hp and 77 lb-ft of torque. Based on the leaked specifications, curb weight for the S660 will range from 1,830 to 2,116 lbs depending on options and trim.
The engine will be mated to either a CVT or a six-speed manual transmission and will initially be available in seven colors: white, yellow, red, blue, gray, orange and purple. We also get a sneak preview of the interior which sports a conventional Honda three-spoke steering wheel and a touchscreen infotainment system. Expect more details on the Honda S660 when it makes its official debut later this year.
