Video

I have seen the video and think it looks the real deal but...and a big but.. is i find it so strange how Honda would release an icon bike in this fashion... are they so disappointed with it themselves that they are not bothered promoting the fact it exists... look at every other manufacturer and how they released their icon bikes... they brag and brag until we are sick listening to them... so in my opinion there is more to come and this is a decoy...

New Blade

If that is the new blade, then they must be releasing it alongside an RC(something) or VFR(something)... like they did with the RC51 twin. That would explain the apparent complete lack of R&D. I still personally believe it's a fake. It would be terribly odd of Honda to pursue the V4 engine with all their new bikes, then not bother with their keystone machine. Plus this way they can knock the price of the blade down a couple of grand to undercut all they're current rivals by a substantial margin (target all the cheapskates), while still having a market leading supersports V4 to target all the people who don't mind spending £14k+ on a bike... (& have a homologated track weapon for WSBK)
