Production Honda S660 roadster images, specs leakedby Ben Hsu

The first official images and specs of the production Honda S660 roadster have been leaked online, from what appears to be a Japanese brochure or dealer info sheet.
According to the photos, the production version hews very close to the concept shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The nose adds a piece of brightwork above the grille, bringing the S660 closer in line with the Honda Beat, a similarly-sized compact roadster built from 1991-96.
The sporty profile remains in tact, adding a bit of trim along the vent and a side signal light aft of the front wheels. The rear vent's shape stays the same, but the blacked out graphic surrounding it turns to body color. Production concessions like door handles and a larger side mirrors show up in the images as well.
The largest change comes from the rear, in which the CHMSL is brought lower between the nacelles that sweep rearward from the headrests. The bridge between taillights is also eliminated for a more conventional rear graphic, and the vertical flanking triangular exhaust outlets disappear.
Interior-wise, the concept's steering wheel is replaced by a conventional Honda split 3-spoke. A touchscreen multifunction interface also appears on the dash.
The spec sheet confirms the predicted 63 hp figure, which comes in at 6,000 rpm, while the peak torque rating stands at 77 lb-ft at 2,600 rpm. Curb weight ranges from 1,830 to 2,116 pounds depending on options and trim. The same 660cc engine can be mated to either a CVT or 6-speed manual.
Six body colors are available, including orange, purple, red, and the Beat staple of yellow.
