never gonna happen when they already have a 250. too close.
honda will more than likely release an updated 650 dual-sport and hopefully a 450 but i would not hold your breath on that size.
unlike ktm, the japanese are not trying to make a bike for all the sizes. they will stick with 250, 650 and one of them (suzuki?) might delve into the 450 street legal size. after that expect them to compete in the mid-displacement multi-cyl adv bike and the 1200+ size.
