Sixty years ago, Soichiro Honda saw the bigger bikes from Triumph and BSA and wanted in. But instead of a parallel twin four-cylinder, he wanted to bring over the inline-four cylinder tech from their car racing endeavors. The Honda CB750 from 1969 was the Japanese bike that was responsible for the superbike moniker thanks to its 750cc inline four-cylinder engine and the comfortable upright riding position. The CB750 became the brand’s most powerful motorcycle and the bike Americans wanted for its torque and 100 mph cruising speed. It went on to become a legend. Honda has just made a modern version called the CB-F Concept with even more power from its 998cc inline-four and double overhead camshafts. The design is evocative of the CB750F and CB900F from the ’80s and beautifully executed for the 21st century. It also gets inverted forks, radial disc brakes, a rear monoshock, and single-sided aluminum swingarm. This won’t be the production bike, but you can bet the finished product will be awfully close, and we can’t wait.

This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
