If that any different from your post? Will Honda sort it out? yes they will, as with all major manufacturers, they have too much to lose from not. The point of the post that you seem to have entirely missed being that all motorcycle manufacturers have and will have teething issues and recalls on all new models, its not an argument to forego a huge number of excellent models from your options when choosing a new bike. As for saying you wouldn't look anywhere but Europe for your new bike, surely any intelligent person chooses the best model available at the time? if you wanted an all out track tool, one year ago you would have bought the Fireblade, now you would have to consider the S1000RR. Same with 600cc nakeds, 10 years ago, Hornet or Bandit, they where your choices, but now you have many more options. But to discount everything from outside of Europe deprives yourself of great bikes. it doesn't make you discerning, different, or sophisticated. If I were to discount every European motorcycle and only buy Japanese motorcycles, I would miss out on the 1050 speed triple & Tiger, the excellent Thunderbird, Ducati Speedfighter, S1000RR, R1200GS, KTM SMT, Moto Guzzi Stelvio, RSV millie & Tuono etc etc etc, but you are missing out on the Blade, R1, CB1000R, ZZR & GTR1400, new Z1000, GL1800, CRF450, Bking, Hayabusa as well as the VFR1200 and all of the coming versions (and having ridden the DCT, i can tell you it is fucking awesome). But then I choose my bikes by what's the best at the time, not by the badge on the tank.
