I think Honda, and most of the other manufacturers, are clearly focusing on markets outside of the US, where small bikes are popular. Take India for example, small bikes sell like hotcakes.... CBR250R.... Ninja 250R... all hot sellers there. They realize those markets are where the growth is, so they build bikes for those markets, and will probably still import them to the US to see if they sell.
It would be sweet to see a CFR650L or something like that though... the XR650L is an old design, and probably due for replacement.
