They also complained about not having a new 600RR for 5 years, when it happens, they're complaining!

They complained about KawaSUCKi dropping the 500, when there are 3 new ones on the market, what happens? They complain again!

Oh that's right, because it's not green.

You guys complaining about a terrible looking front end must not have looked at a Yamaha recently..







How quickly we forget.

Been a while since I owned mine, thanks for the reminder. But it also has a new rear shock, with more settings.

I like the way all newer generation bikes look but none of the fronts are very nice IMHO I think the cbr r6 and ninja all look like aliens and the gsxr my personal favorite still looks like a Cyclopes but is the least ugly in the front

I like the headlights/front end on the CBR600. If I was in that market, I'd almost certainly choose it; the CBR line has always been versatile, highly rideable, high quality, and practically indestructible.

The CB1100 is pretty cool; I'm adding that to my list of bikes to testride, as a cool UJM all-rounder.

The GoldWing F6B I think is pretty cool looking, but I can't imagine what it would really be good for.

The 500s are good additions to the market; that segment has been empty for a while leaving a big gap between the 250s and the 650s. No need for one for me, but I could easily see one of those being a great bike for my daughter.

So I'm not going to say that Honda knocked it out of the park or anything, but they have introduced some interesting and worthwhile bikes.

This may or may not have anything to do with sales success. IMO, the last time Honda really knocked it out of the park with bike introductions was 1989, and they lost their shirts on all of the really cool bikes they added (NT650, PC800, GB500, and CB-1) -- any or all of which I'd still like to have.

OMG, what is up with the CB1100 atrocity? God, that has to be the ugliest bike I have ever seen.
Haven't seen a Japanese motorcycle built between 1969 and 1983 then, have you? The CB1100 is a modern itineration of the classic UJM Superbike. Looks just like the bikes I lusted after while in middle school in the mid 80's. CBF's? GS's? GPZ's? Not the ugliest bikes ever seen...

Old CB750



New CB1100 looks like a pretty faithful and tasteful modern version. I'd cafe the fuck outta that thing.

Reminds me of that line from 21 Jump street...

What I'd like to know is why they're trying to push this red/white/blue color scheme so much. It's looked like crap on almost every bike I've seen it on. 2013cbr250 looks ok in it.

Actually saw a pic of a 500X with a deep red metallic gas tank and it looked pretty nice. The X is probably my fave out of the 500s.

I took my motorcycle license rider's test (Illinois) on my friend's 77' CB750. They were cool back then and they still are now. They were the sport bikes of the day, just heavier than hell at 3mph in the parking lot trying to weave between cones...

I was thinking the same. In some of the photos you even see a pretty respectable beer belly of sorts.

Nothing wrong with a little belly, but isn't this supposed to be aimed at go-fast, full good looking gear, thrill seeking relatively young people?


Or perhaps not, and it's a much more honest representation of the customer base

It's so interesting reading the exaggerating, or if not exaggerating, then highly emotional replies. Everyone's opinion differs so fucking wildly in this stuff it really is fun to read.
