Honda has announced the price of its new DN-01 automatic motorcycle - but only in Japan.

Over there, the innovative machine with its hydraulic drive system will cost 1,239,000 Yen, which translates to £6000.

While the official line from Honda is that the bike will cost between £8000 and £10,000 in the UK, the relatively low Japanese price suggests it will be nearer the bottom end of that scale.

The Japanese price puts the DN-01 between the firm's CBR600RR and CBR1000RR as far as cost is concerned, suggesting that in the UK, once import costs and taxes are taken into account, it's likely to be around £8000.
