Too specialized?

The cost of new bikes is certainly a bit of a shock. The other shock is the narrow focus of these bikes. You could argue that the new Honda Crossdresser, sorry Crosstourer is pretty versatile. Yet looking at the photograph, there is little or no room for a passenger to travel in comfort, the style is kind of MX-ish, does this mean that the seat height is way up there? It has a "cowl bar", great, but what protects the "aluminum look" panniers, or the cases? It looks like this bike is aimed at the wealthy crowd who have a bike for each occasion.

Muddy Crossdresser

Looks great. Surely the centre stand should be standard on all crossdressers?? (Or did I read the article wrong)..

 

To those that don't "get it". It's aimed at those who want the "Adventure" look but without having to go offroad. Same as those who want the "Race bike" look with their R1 GSXR Blade etc. etc. but never go any where near a racetrack...

Agreed, much to expensive. Unfortunately this seems to filter down to second hand prices too, especially when compared to second hand car prices. A mate of mine just sold his 12yrs old BMW 325i for £750 on eBay, for that money you would be struggling to buy a good 125cc on eBay. It can't be supply and demand as there are plenty of bikes out there.

Perhaps for the UK.  Nothing the Big 4 can do anything about.  Blame the exhange rate and other world finance issues.  In the USA, this will likely be prices around $14-15k as seen in the pic.  That will be about $6000 less than a similarly equipped standard GS.

Triumph

I love the spoke wheels and the gorgeous V4 but its nearly £1500 dearer than the New Triumph Explorer or 1k more if you kit up the triumph to the same spec

I've got a test on one this week but they will have to bring the price down to attract buyers

Having tested the brilliant Explorer i doubt the Honda will sway me form the triumph

i love Hondas but they and Yamaha seem to have lost touch with what riders actually want and like and can afford

I Say

I love the comment about the Millions of sports bike riders who never ever go near a race track but just want to look like a racer ? they cant understand the Adventurer thing and many also don't get the 60mph road rider on the fastest best handling best tricked up race rep money can buy thing , I've had/got both but the Adventurer scene is more fun without doubt , but different opinions and individual tastes is one of the things that makes biking great

the charge for a centre stand not being a basic standard item would stop me buying a bike ?
