Still, we could be seeing the beginning of the "next big thing" in motorcycling. Or at least we can dream!
IMHO, retros in the US are already the 'next niche thing'..
I'll be giving up my Speed Triple to make garage space when the CB1100 arrives.
The S3 seems to have it all in a 'naked bike', power, handling, sound, brakes.. I had dreams that it would be the '70s Triumph Trident that I couldn't have (at the time) because I was too poor..
but I never was quite 'in love' with it.
I know I will love the CB1100.
Since I'm 3rd in line at my non-Powerhouse Honda dealer I wonder if that will happen this year... maybe if enough people voted with their $$$ deposits, Honda would consider an extended production run to meet demand (if demand is really there.. we could be living in an enthusiasts bubble here on this thread).. we'll see... but this year, next year or the next, I'm getting one of these things...
