No need for it. Nakeds don't sell very well here and it'll have to compete against Suzuki's 1250 Bandit with the added serious disadvantage of Honda overpricing.

I think it looks pretty cool, if it was competitive with the new Bandit and FZ1 I'd give it a look.

It's supposed to have different mapping than the RR tuned motor. That's it. So, bank on a 150hp bike. But we'll never see it. Honda would have to ask about as much as the CBR- there is no point in shipping it.

I bet it would be more than the CBR. Think B-King and Busa. The B-King is more money. Can't figure out why a slower bike with less plastic = more cash, but there are lots of things I can't figure out.

come in a little early.......,

Up your smoke breaks by 10% and you could afford this thing easy!
.....Leave a little late and put it down as training, instant 2 hrs. OT per day. Phone in on my days off and check on the plant and there's 4 hours OT per day as call back hrs. stop by and have a cup of mud and there's 8 hrs. call in...amazing how quick it adds up......

So the cb1100f is coming. The 919 wasn't enough of a disaster. Now a new CBR1000 big bore naked (remember 93-94) is going to fly? The fact that I happen to like them sure doesn't make them sell very well. ZRX1200R which I bought new sure hit "cult" bike status rather quickly.
Welcome to the country of chrome or plastic.

Actually, no. According to the first ride stuff I've read, there are some small differences and it makes about 130hp. They did say it's really good, though. MCN's only real b*tch is that it might be a bit too civilized. Typical gripe about Hondas.

It's not coming here, at least anytime soon. Honda designed this bike specifically for Europe.
