It's not too late. Those would be some badass crossover bikes ...

Three early twin cylinder design drafts (1981-1982) drawn by the XLV750R designer Mitsuyoshi Kohama and a clay prototype of the XLV photographed in the Honda Design Room in Tokyo in 1982.

"NVXL750" or "NV750XL" were early designations for the XLV750R, because its engine was derived from the VT750C (which was named NV750C in Japan).

  • I‘m afraid it‘s too late. No manufacturer today would build an air cooled V-twin dual-purpose bike with shaft final drive.
