Glad to see Honda is bring this over. I like the styling. I'm riding a 1991 Bandit 250 inline 4 right now (living in Japan), and it makes 40-ish horsepower redlining at 17000 rpm. This is my first street bike. It's was a little nerve racking having next to no torque down low and having to rev the crap out of the bike on even the slightest hill, but I've managed. I think the single will help with that for new riders. Maybe this is a stepping stone for Honda to bring over model 1/4 liter models that are more spirited than this thumper sportbike. Hopefully they sell well and the VTR follows this bike! Speaking of the motor, is this just a detuned/retuned CRF motor?
