The 2011 Honda Sabre Switchblade (Pro Drag) Concept Motorcycle

2011 Honda Sabre Switchblade (Pro Drag)

Starting with 2010 Honda VT1300’s 3 young designers from Honda Reseach & Development Americas located in Southern Calinfornia were given the opportunity to build customs based on where their visions would take the Fury, Stateline & Sabre.

The designers were given free reign within a limited budget and 2 requirements, full on runners, and stay true to the core of the production vehicle.

Another reality was that the designers had only 3 months to realize their builds from start to finish.

The Furious (Chopper), Switchblade (ProDrag) and Slammer (Bagger) debuted at the December 17th 2010 Long Beach, CA International Motorcycle show and will continue on the nationwide tour through 2011.

Taking the 2010 Sabre, designer Edward Birtulescu (Honda R&D Americas) conceived Switchblade.

A racing inspired cruiser that took styling cues from Formula1 and MotoGP.

With one look you know that Switchblade is fully committed to precision and performance.

Full Carbon fiber dress, racing 3 way adjustable suspension and a single sided swing arm with a 535 chain conversion optimize the single focus of this design, speed. Switchblade has a mass centralized proportion to reinforce this super sport assault.
