It’s got a small displacement, high-revving engine and it even boasts a dual-clutch transmission, but Honda‘s new Integra isn’t what you’d expect. In fact, it’s not even a car.

If you thought that perhaps the Japanese automaker’s engineering department was lagging behind, they’ve got nothing on the slackers in the motorcycle marketing division. Borrowing a name from the iconic front-drive sport compact, the new Honda Integra motorcycle will be unveiled at the EICMA 2011 show in Milan, Italy.

As for engineering, Honda aims to set new standards with this new 670cc engine, a 4-stroke, 2-cylinder unit that will be fitted to the Integra and two other models.

Honda officials would not confirm or deny plans for a Type-R.
