The Honda powered 1100 air-cooled CBX engine was fitted to an Egli frame and mechanics. Target designed the bodywork, which had to fit around the wide six-cylinder transverse mounted engine. The unusual seat design was surprisingly comfortable according to a test rider as it prevented body displacement under braking and acceleration. The soft suede leather also gripped better than conventional smooth leather making for a more relaxed riding experience. The design also featured a screen air duct, a hangover from the BMW K100RS screen aerofoil, designed to help smooth airflow over the rider's head.The design also had the first (TUV bugel - see 1:1 tape), a rear wheel guard that later became common place on some motorbikes and many scooters. It removed the need for a conventional larger rear wheel mudgaurd as the protector covered the area 100mm above the wheel centre line which was a legal requirement in Germany at that time. Below the 1:5 drawing and 1:1 tape drawing. The design featured on the cover of the monthly Japanese magazine Riders Club issue #10.
