That would be very cool. It's about time that Big Red pulled their finger out. Aprilia will likely shit their pants, if true.

Honda should build this bike so all the V4 lovers and complainers about Honda not building anything cool can find a reason not to buy it. Then Honda will be sitting with a bunch of them in the warehouses and regret making it and spending the money developing it.:rolleyes:

Old man Honda is dead, I don't see the beancounters in charge going forward with something like this, especially after the VFR 1200 bellyflop they created.:twocents

It's funny because Honda dealers around here have been instructed to say the bike is a "success" in spite of the fact they have plenty gathering dust in showrooms and warehouses. :wacky
A second hand K1200S (the bike Honda modeled the VFR1200F after) will set up back 8000-9000€. A second hand K1300S (lighter, better handling, more powerful version of above) will cost about 13 grands. You have to be mad or an hardcore V4 fan to get a VFR.
No, scratch that, not even Larry wants one! :D

Ahh, but this bike will not be anything like the VF1200 in concept or execution. THAT bike was an answer to a problem no-one was asking, IMO. Automatic gearbox on a 1200cc, heavy, sporting bike? Really? Someone going to migrate from a scooter to that thing?

And Dawg.....I hear ya! Big, brawny, V-twins for me too. But the Honda V4 would be cool, if it happened.

And then we can get them cheap in Mexico with a wad of pesos.

In that light, why not just re-introduce the RC45.... maybe, like wine, it will have gotten better with age :) On a positive note, it could hardly do worse in competition this time around than it did last time, lol
