This folks, is the LOOP
The PCX meets current exhaust emission standards in Japan, Europe and the U.S. using PGM-FI electronic fuel injection and a catalytic converter in the muffler.
Honda's PCX will be manufactured in Thailand

Front on to the EV-Cub electric motorcycle - now that front hub might be a fat drum brake, but our guess is that it houses an electric motor
The EV-Cub electric motorcycle has an external communications system of some ilk, as demonstrated by this image from the Honda press library

Honda has released images of several new eco-friendly two-wheelers it will present at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month, including the EV-Cub electric motorcycle, the EVE-neo electric scooter and its previously-announced PCX global scooter, the first two-wheeler to employ an 'idling stop system'. The most interesting of the new eco-bikes is without doubt the EV-Cub, which employs what appears to be car2car and car2driver communications dubbed HELLO! (Honda ELectric mobility LOop) and a LOOP portable communication tool that fits in the palm of one’s hand and “allows people and mobility devices to communicate with each other.” The EV-Cub also appears to have electric motors in both front and rear wheels, indicating that it is almost certainly a two-wheel-drive (2WD) motorcycle. 2WD motorcycles are expected to become commonplace in the future as, like their 4WD automotive cousins, they offer traction advantages on loose surfaces and wet roads and improve rider safety, especially for learners.
