Honda's naked VF800 designs

New patents show that Honda is developing a new low-cost, high-spec naked bike around its venerable – but legendary – VFR800 V4 engine. The bike’s overall design is hinted at in an innocuous-sounding patent titled “Hollow-welded assembled frame structure”, which refers to a fairly technical aspect of how a steel trellis frame can be made. What’s interesting about the patent isn’t so...

Honda innocuous v4

Mm, i think, Honda could be onto a winner here if they come up with the goods, that is.......

.......In the shape of the pre- V-TEC engine and go back to the GDC ( gear driven cam) version.

I'm not bothered about the V-TEC effect, i want the GDC engine back. It lasts longer, is less bother and you just have that sense of peace of mind with that engine.

I also HOPE, they give it the Hornet 600 forks and get rid of the linked brake system. Give it ABS and RAD CALS, at least, and for goodness sakes keep the single swinger.......

I hope Honda, when or if they release this model give it the `WOW' factor, as in... `it may be built to a budget but just look at the style, very agrressive and i want one', otherwise, don't bother.

Make it a GDC engined, more TDM than Crossrunner, with a decent screen for £8k and I'd also be interested.

Give it a

decent sized tank too. Not that thimble the new Yamaha has. Keep it in the Yamaha's price bracket though and I'll have one too.

Make a GDC, HFT, Shafty, on 16Inchers, more Tmax GT than DN/Integra/S.wing for £9.5k and I'd be even more interested.
