Honda is about to release the 'perfect' downhill mountain bike. Apparently Honda has tested four years until they finalized the RN01G design.

The Honda RN01G core feature is an internal transmission. Combined with the motocross style frame the RN01G is basically indestructible.

There are no technical details available at this point. Honda is introducing the RN01G at the Interbike trade-show in Las Vegas. The show will take place starting September 24th with an outdoor gathering.

For car makers to venture into mountain bike production is nothing new. Jeep introduced years ago an all-wheel drive MTB. BMW is also making mountain bikes with unique frame designs.

Update 07/25/07:
See this new video showing Greg Minnaar and Brandan Fairclough riding the Honda RN01 on Dirt Magazine.
