The Honda S660 - Replacement of Honda Beat?


Honda is trying to revive its kei-car production and provide more choices for consumers to choose beside Daihatsu (Japan main kei-car manufacturer).  A technical specifications of the production model have surfaced online in what appears to be scans from a brochure. From the specifications, the roadster will measure in at 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width and 1,180 mm in height where its fit nicely to the kei-car classification. 

The roadster will be equipped with a three-cylinder unit pumping out 64 hp and 104 Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or CVT transmission. While that doesn’t sound like much, do keep in mind that the Honda S660 is expected to weigh less than 1,000 kg – providing a top speed of 140 km/h. Beside the engine, a centrally-mounted exhaust pipe and redesigned rear lamps are new additions over the concept car.

And very fortunate that the production Honda S660 retains most of the concept’s futuristic styling elements, from the multiple air intakes in front and on the side to the bold front grille. Here below are the technical specifications sheet in Japanese and the concept design of the car. Personally I believed this is a good replacement for the Honda Beat.


Here is the image of Honda Beat in case you do not know which model mentioned above.
