Well aren't you a crafty little badger, Honda? While we were distracted by the goings on in Motown, you unveiled this excellent Gear concept at the Montreal motor show.

Inspired by fixed-gear bikes, the DS3-troubling two-door Gear's built for the Gen-Y lot, and is "customisable, connected, and full of personality."

Design Director at Honda R&D Americas, Dave Marek, says: "Subcompact cars are usually either utilitarian, but uninspiring or they're fun, zippy cars that are impractical and too expensive for the Gen-Y buyer. Gear [...] is practical but fun, customisable, connected and affordable. Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car."

There aren't any other details to share for the time being, but are you digging those first-gen Civic/N600 design touches, TopGear.commers?
