Hideous

Dont tell me Honda are going to launch their flagship bike in these hideous colours. it is terrible.

It looks like a retro CBR600. Surely they must be able to learn something by now from European machines that rule the market. Clearly no taste.

Don't worry - it's another MCN mockup. If you look at this link: http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/News/newsresults/New-bikes/2012/October/oct1012-poll-what-do-you-want-from-the-road-rcv/ You can see it is a update to a previous (more successful looking if bland) mock up they did.

Sorry to dissapoint mate but that picture IS NOT REAL. As many of MCNs "scoops" its a computer generated image which will look nothing like the real thing. Where are the spy shots MCN? Yet again lazy reporting, lets see some REAL bikes.

pointless pics

What is the point of MCN's computer generated pics? Who give a toss what their computer geek graphic designer 'thinks' the bike might look like. Tell us when you KNOW!

Yamaha XV950 world first test

But here in the US a bunch of reviews of the 99.9% identical Star Bolt have been published.

Another total irrelevance for public roads! Be great for track days though! I'm still waiting for that shaft-driven diesel tourer that does 100mpg with a 300 mile range (minimum!) that will take 2 people and their luggage across continents. The technology exists! Can't understand why, when manufacturers make a bike that is more efficient, they then put a smaller tank on it? Come on guys, we had big tourers doing 45mpg 40 years ago. Even cars do more to the gallon now! Shameful! Stop competing on power and concentrate on practicality for a change. Sorry if I sound old-fashioned, but we get 6 cylinders or bikes that cost more to service than a car (and more often) or 300kg or bikes that cost over a grand to repair if they just fall off the stand and they are called tourers! Oooh, I feel better for getting that off my chest.

If this bike does not top the BMW HP4 then Honda should not waste their time.
