I hate how they always put up a pic, even though they have no idea of what it looks like

Patent documentation only revealed engine details, giving no clue about aesthetics. Expect the production RVF1000R to resemble a cross between the current CBR and the wheel-less V4 Concept debuted at Intermot 2008.

Saweeet! If that thing will be in production in 2012 wonder when will they make an official intro to the model with more details and some images.

The Pommy MCN has been trotting this out every three years or so, it was going to be an 800 then a 1000 V5 when the GP bikes went four stroke (yes this has been around at least this long). Then a fireblade replacement, then a 1200 monster so the VFR 1200 got universally panned as it was a sports touring bike and not a sport bike like they predicted. All the stories patent references and artists renderings have one thing in common they have never actually manifested themselves into an actual bike let alone a production road bike.

With Honda up too its eye balls in its GP push to try and get the high ground back I don't see a major WSBK effort and its WSBK that requires homlogation production runs.

This needs to happen. I'm not really a Honda fan, but Honda can pull off some amazing shit when they put their pride on the the line. This would be good news for the whole market. A sign of life!

The talk of "deriving" a racebike motor from the VFR1200 is nonsense. If Honda produces a 1000cc V4 homologation special (and it would be very cool if they did), it will be 90-degree and DOHC--an upsized RC212, not a downsized VFR.

Either way, knowing Honda, it'll cost $20,000.

Really it would be a logical move for them, would put all of that MotoGP development money into a project that would actually generate revenue.

Hell, you can't hardly get a 600 for under $12,000 anymore

Sadly, it's not just Honda...

Considering that the RC45 was a very similar idea, and was about $27K, 17 years ago, your estimate is probably well on the low side.

It will probably cost something like $35k

Very cool though
