You guys keep talking about entry bikers; but, I see it as being well positioned for commuters. FI for easy starting in the morning and ABS, which even those who dislike it will generally agree is a good option to have for all weather commuting.

As far as the power, It will probably travel at real commuting speeds (which, contrary to the day dreams, are not 100+ mph). FI, ABS, and enough body work to reduce wind fatigue, it looks well positioned for the commuter market. The only issue that remains is pricing. I hope Honda realizes that they need to get a new generation of riders so that they can enjoy the benefits of the brand loyalty that they have had in the past.
As a nation we still continue to enjoy a literally unprecedented prosperity; and it is probable that only reckless speculation and disregard of legitimate business methods on the part of the business world can materially mar this prosperity. -- Theodore Roosevelt, Sixth Annual Message, December 3, 1906
