Yeah I like it too. Honda is the only Japbike company that I can see any passion in. They have several new bikes that I like. This bike just makes perfect sense for the U.S. Have you seen a price for this new CB?

One review said $9,999... no idea if that's accurate or not, but it sure seems "right"....

Yep, $9,999. Or $10,999 with ABS.


$5,500 for this CB500 seems pretty good, too:

the 4 cylinder Honda inlines of old had really peaky torque curves... great if you like to shift a lot. Personally, I prefer longer stroke engines with much broader torque curves.
Might not be a problem on this one. One review said:

...the word engine could be replaced by “torque machine.” The bike exhibits exceptional amounts of torque yet carries a smooth powerband

I love the look, since I always liked the early 70's Hondas.....Which were really just late 1960's Triumphs that didn't leak and always cranked.

that's a nice looking bike. personally i'm glad to see something other than a crotch rocket or cruiser on the market. Now if they would come out with a midsize like that...

Its a nowhere bike. Might catch a few retro sales.

I must say, it does look amazingly like an early 1980's CB750.

a bit too "crotch rocket" for me.
