Honda has launched the first video in a five episode series to promote a new 2018 model announcement on October 24, 2017. Called #WhatLiesBeyond, the first video is decidedly travel oriented, which suggests the new model is going to be a touring bike of some sort.
The initial episode, which went live last week on Honda’s powersports website and social-media channels, explores the motivation behind riders exploring unknown roads and seeking out new experiences aboard their motorcycles. It features inspiring action and lifestyle footage of a disparate collection of Honda models, while a voiceover concludes, “We know home, but what we don’t know is what lies beyond.” The video closes with the #WhatLiesBeyond hashtag and the date 10.24.17, which is when the new model will be revealed.
“It’s always a thrill to kick off a new marketing campaign, and we think the first episode in this video series is entirely worthy of the significant 2018 model that it’s intended to promote,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Powersports Marketing Communications at American Honda. “We’re proud to showcase our products’ features and benefits, but sometimes it’s nice to take a step back and simply celebrate the act of riding a motorcycle. We look forward to releasing episode 2 next month.”
Rider will be at the launch of the new model and will bring you the details as soon as they’re released. Post your guesses in the comments!
