Does not look too bad in pictures, if it's the real deal ?

According to MCN on twitter no tech details as yet. Could be a prototype? Pre production?

"Timescedule:
March/April 2015: official press release in Northern Africa (most likely Morocco), at the dealer in September 2015."

Does that look like a 600 - 750cc parallel Twin ?  I can't make it out. The good news is it doesn't look like the NC750X engine.

Looking closely can it be 1000CC?

From Honda press release:

True Adventure Prototype
The second prototype on display is the True Adventure Prototype. Inspired by both Honda’s fantastic heritage in adventure motorcycling and our recent Dakar programme, the True Adventure Prototype captures the product direction as Honda seeks to expand its presence in the Adventure segment. This prototype has been developed to deliver outstanding off-road capability, and could provide the basis of a true round-the-world motorcycle. It’s flanked by the current Team HRC CRF450 Rally and, paying respect to Honda’s competition legacy, the 1989 Paris-Dakar winning NXR Africa Twin ridden by Gilles Lalay.
No further technical details or information on either the road going RC213V-S Prototype or True Adventure prototype are available at this time.

It doesn't seem to have much of a fuel tank.
