The idea is blindingly straightforward; modern road-going sportbikes already have large protrusions on either side in the form of their mirrors, so why add more winglets? Instead, Honda proposes wing-shaped, downforce-creating mirrors. The bike illustrated in the patent drawing is a current-model CBR1000RR. That bike is understood to be in line for replacement in 2020, so it’s unlikely to be the actual recipient of these mirrors. But its replacement would be the perfect machine to use them on.
