If the picture represents pulling the cover off, they ALL look like cruiser bikes!

But I will go ahead and predict unveiling CBR500R, new CBR600RR, new CBR1000RR, new Goldwing, and new Shadow.

Ya think I will get one of them?

Just did some digging, I think it's the new CBR500R, CB500r, and CB500x. CB500x is similar to NC700x. Check the pics

Spotted: Honda CBR500, Honda CB500R & Honda CB500X

The only Honda's that spark my interest are the lawn mowers.

A sportbike? With those tall mirrors, panniers and the headlamp far back from the front wheel?

In fact, none of them look like a sportbike...


One of them must be another of their "crossovers" and the rest 4 different Shadows that are the same thing with different wheels and one might include hard luggage.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

I have a Honda CBR250R and I love it.

Do I like anything else in the Honda line?

Nope.

I loved the F4i, 929, 954 and RC51. Now Honda is just blending in and not making anything special that once made my heart beat.

I am not sure about this but Hondas bikes are currently last in hp in the 600SS ranks and at the bottom third in the 1000SS ranks. This from a professed "engine company."

The Fireblade still gets very high marks from most serious bike mags and it still is one of the top selling bikes because it's engine is supposedly so good it doesn't need gobs of power or traction control to be rideable. I've never ridden one so I cant say one way or another, but I do really like the CB1000.

Don't get sucked into all the magazine hype. Just because something sells well doesn't always mean that it's great. Some people are loyalist and the same goes for me. I'm a Suzuki loyalist being that they have the best aftermarket support by far and the privateers choice for that reason and are cheap to mod. That doesn't mean that stock it doesn't come without it's flaws. You can make any bike special but, stock vs stock ride one against the competition and you will see. Honda wants to say that you don't need traction control but, that's their way of ripping you off and charging what those who offer traction control for. They are behind the power curve with todays tech. Honda and Suzuki are behind in those regards. Kawasaki, Yamaha, Ape, BMW and Duc all offer traction control and if I remember ABS also of some sort. Also Honda doesn't make much power compared to the front runners. Of the big 4 Kawasaki is the best bang for buck.

Just looking at dyno charts, the Honda would be my pick even though as a brand I prefer Kawasaki, just due to the midrange usability of it, the Kawi is a top end and I hate the styling of the Yamaha and Suzuki. Then again I don't love the CBR styling either, pre 08 mods looked great though. Right now all japanese bikes look like ass IMO.

I'd be most excited (for you guys) if Honda decided to "release" the CB1000RA in the US - it's already available here. And while I have a general disdain for Honda... I actually really like the look of this bike.

It just needs an exhaust that looks less like a dildo.
