The two-tone lowers really screw the pooch by flattening out the bike's natural upswept / high tail lines. Makes it look boring ... um, I mean, like a Honda.

According to the Honda has 165bhp and weighs 178kg (391.6lbs). If this is true, Honda has just lost a fan. I'll keep riding my F4i but I'm tired of Honda presenting models that are below the specs of other manufacturers. It's as if Honda is saying, "Here is the bike we are making. Yeah, we know it is butt ugly and yeah we know it is heavier and down on power compared with the competition, but if you want a Honda, here it is. Take it or leave it." Sounds like Harley-Davidson. Maybe Honda has taken on the "You don't ride a spec sheet" tagline. I know they win races, but, why do they cheat the consumer? Also, why does Europe get a red, white and blue model, but USA doesn't? Electric damper? Can't wait for that fuse to blow during a spirited ride. Won't matter anyway cause the guy on the Buell will be too far ahead to see the Fireblade crash.
