These new honda products seem to address these issues and im betting these will be great commuters for cruiser fans. Ill probably check one out at the very least. I do wish these werent soft tail.
I think what Honda's doing it looking at marketing data and trying to design motorcycles that will entice new riders.
They've tried to market to us, but we're always whining that they're not making the stuff we like (see this thread for proof).
I hope they succeed, because if they do, they'll have enough cash in their motorcycle division to fund cool stuff for us.
Me? I'd like to see the VFR1200 RT shown earlier in this thread. It doesn't have to beat the K1600GT. It just has to be a good alternative to the R1200RT.
